“The functional proteins market is projected to grow at a significant rate”
The functional proteins market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% from 2017, to reach USD 5.73 billion by 2022. The demand for functional proteins is expected to be on the rise, owing to factors such as an increase in the demand for animal-derived proteins in applications such as sports & fitness nutrition and infant nutrition. Development of various forms of protein ingredients such as concentrates and isolates by the manufacturers for food products such as dairy, beverages, dietary supplements, infant formula, bakery, confectionery, and other food products is expected to drive the growth of the functional proteins market. Also, the shifting trend of consumers toward health and wellness is another significant driver for the global functional proteins market. However, stringent regulations pertaining to animal proteins and high R&D costs are some of the major restraints for the growth of the functional proteins market.
“Dietary supplements application is projected to be the fastest-growing in the functional proteins market”
The dietary supplements segment is projected to grow at the highest rate between 2017 and 2022, in terms of both volume and value, among all other applications. Whey proteins, as a diet supplement, have been increasingly preferred by consumers of all ages. One of the upcoming trends is the intake of protein powders, which promotes health benefits such as muscle gain and fat loss.
“Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing region in the market”
