Global Pea Protein Processing Equipment Market 2017-2021
About Pea Protein Processing Equipment
Pea proteins are proteins that have been extracted from peas. Usually, yellow peas are used for pea protein extraction because they contain less sulfur and are rich in amino acids such as lysine. Pea protein has a wide range of applications such as in snacks, nutritional supplements, beverages, and meat alternatives and extenders. Pea protein is hypoallergenic and easy to digest, and thus, it is used in various food products as an ingredient. It is also used in pet food and aqua feed.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global pea protein processing equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 5.91% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Pea Protein Processing Equipment Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global pea protein processing equipment market: ANDRITZ, Bühler, GEA Group, and SATAKE.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AKYUREK TECHNOLOGY, ALFA LAVAL, Alvan Blanch, ARVOS Group, Flottweg, Hosokawa Micron Group, JK Machinery, Prater, Rauscher Engineering, and Sturtevant.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is expansions of pea protein processing plants. The demand for pea protein has been increasing worldwide due to the various benefits it provides over other proteins. To leverage on the increasing demand, some of the pea protein processing companies have also started expanding their production capacities to increase their market share and to reach out to new customers, thereby meeting the increasing demand for pea protein.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is health and nutritional benefits provided by pea protein. Pea protein contains a large amount of amino acids such as glutamine and the branched chain amino acids (BCAA) such as leucine, isoleucine, and valine. Pea protein also provides good digestibility. BCAA helps keep the human body in a muscle-building state, mainly by increasing stamina and energizing workouts. BCAA also helps in reducing fat. Pea protein is a good source of nutrition for children and the elderly. It contains lysine, which helps in lowering cholesterol. Lysine absorbs calcium and helps in building bones, skin, and tendons.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is concerns about side effects of pea protein. Pea protein is usually considered to be low allergenic unlike other proteins. However, the consumption of pea protein may cause a few side effects, which is a concern for some consumers. The side effects are usually due to overconsumption of protein over a short period of time. The side effects are caused due to the adverse reaction of the immune system to some specific protein that is present in peas. Overconsumption of pea protein may also lead to various complications such as wheezing, shortness of breath, coughing, nausea, throat irritation, and others.
