  • Market Dynamics

    The protein hydrolysate market is driven by the increasing demand from different application segments, namely infant formula, sports nutrition and clinical nutrition. Protein hydrolysate ingredients have relatively-low antigenic properties. They can enhance the digestibility and reduce protein allergy, especially in infants.

    The protein hydrolysate market is witnessing a healthy growth, owing to the increasing protein hydrolysate ingredient demand among consumers, owing to the health or nutritional benefits associated with the protein, across the developed regions. The high purity, bioavailability, and digestibility of hydrolysate, when compared with other forms of protein, namely isolates and concentrates, are among their properties that are boosting their demand in the protein ingredient market. The presence of other alternatives of protein ingredient forms (isolate, concentrates) are likely to restrain the protein hydrolysate ingredients market growth.
