Plant-based ingredients are manufactured from crops, including soy, canola, wheat, and pea. Soy protein has been growing at a significant rate and has had the largest share in the plant-based category. It is expected to expand at a high compound annual growth rate over the forecast period. Additionally, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized a health claim for the reduction of LDL cholesterol through dietary guidelines suggesting four servings of soy per day to help reduce the LDL cholesterol level by 10% in the body.

Product innovations and technological advancements are expected to be the major factor for the expansion of the market over the forecast period. Protein ingredients are now being used in diverse applications, for instance, isolates have high dispersibility and very fine particle size due to which they are widely used in dairy applications. Consumers’ belief in the health benefits associated with these products has been the key driver for this market over the past few years and the trend is anticipated to continue over the forecast period.


Protein Ingredients Market Segmentation

Based on the Product Insights the market is segmented into Plant Proteins, Animal/Dairy Proteins, Microbe-based Proteins, Insect Proteins

  • Animal-based proteins led the market and accounted for more than 70.0% share of the global revenue in 2020. Numerous health benefits offered by animal protein ingredients have been supported by strong scientific evidence and recognized by the government food regulatory institutions.
  • Plant proteins are relatively inexpensive compared to animal-derived variants, which is expected to fuel the growth of the plant segment over the forecast period.
  • The demand for micro-based proteins is increasing due to the growth in animal feed applications over the past few years. The number is likely to grow over the next few years, resulting in the growth of the microbe-based proteins segment as it is a key ingredient supplying overall nutritive value and high-quality amino acids to the aquaculture sector.
  • Protein ingredients derived from insects, such as crickets, have found widespread applications, including bars. The protein from insects is typically used in powder form to enhance nutritional value as well as add flavor to the bars.
