Protein hydrolysates are a very highly purified type of protein which comprise amino acids, peptides, and oligopeptides that undergo a pressing process through partial or complete hydrolysis. Owing to its highly purified characteristics, protein hydrolysates allow faster absorption through the cells of the muscles, which enhances the delivery of nutrition to the body.
Protein hydrolysates find extensive application in a variety of food and beverage products including dietary supplements, infant formula, health foods, and sports enhancers. They are also finding increased use in the production of commodities in the cosmetics and personal care sectors. This widespread trend of application is expected to positively influence the growth of the global protein hydrolysate ingredients market. In addition, there are a number of other influencers that can impact the participants in the market. Some of these include:
- The demand for protein hydrolysate ingredients is strong and is constantly growing, owing to the effort of manufacturers to meet the rising global demand. Consequently, manufacturers are increasing their efforts on the development and introduction of new products for their portfolio. This is supported by the rising trend for products for specialist nutrition needs.
- The rise of consumption of vegan foods in recent years and the growing population of vegans are strong driving factors behind the rise of the protein hydrolysate ingredients market, especially for plant based ingredients. These materials also find use in the production of clinical nutrition products, including being used in their function of minimizing the viscosity of sip feeds. This can be attributed to the rising demand arising from a growing global population of geriatrics.
- The rate of ailments such as lactose intolerance has become increasingly common among infants around the globe.

In addition, the protein hydrolysate products are also found to aid in the reduction of associated conditions such as phenylketonuria, driving the market forward.
Growth in the demand for sports nutrition owing to increase in consumer appeal is expected to drive the demand for protein hydrolysate ingredients, particularly Whey Protein Hydrolysate (WPH) ingredients. Rising awareness among consumers about the nutritional benefits of whey protein hydrolysate ingredients and the fact that it is derived from the best of protein sources is expected to drive the consumption if whey protein hydrolysate ingredients. The superior property of protein hydrolysate ingredients, such as versatility, easy applicability and great taste, over its counterparts is expected to make them a preferred choice among consumers and manufacturers. Sports enthusiastic consider whey protein hydrolysate ingredients as a superior protein source.
Demand for Protein Hydrolysate Ingredients Continues to Remain High, with Constant Growth in Applications
Among the by ingredient type segments, meat protein hydrolysate ingredients are expected to register relatively low growth as fewer consumers prefer products processed from meat, whereas plant protein hydrolysate ingredients and casein protein hydrolysate ingredient segments are expected to register promising consumption rates through 2028. Milk protein hydrolysate ingredients are expected to witness moderate growth in terms of consumption during the forecast period, and the whey protein hydrolysate ingredients are expected to experience maximum consumption, reaching a volume of over 59,000 MT by the end of 2028.
A recently released research report by Future Market Insights (FMI) delivers key insights about the global protein hydrolysate ingredients market, which estimates the market to grow with a CAGR of 7.3% over a 10-year projection period – 2018-2028.

Whey Protein Hydrolysate Ingredients Enable Infant Formula to Bag More Space on Shelves in China
The growing market for specialist nutrition, especially in developing countries such as China, India and other Southeast Asian countries, is expected to encourage the consumption of protein hydrolysate ingredients in the years to come. China holds the majority of the protein hydrolysate ingredients market share within the lucrative Asia Pacific region and is considered a key market for protein hydrolysate ingredients. The one-child policy in China is encouraging consumers in the country to opt for specialist nutritional products. In addition, the growing geriatric population in the country continues to generate high demand for products such as protein hydrolysate ingredients, which promote faster recovery post-operation or surgery.
Moreover, infant formula products fortified with protein hydrolysate ingredients have been occupying an increasingly growing space on the shelves in Chinese stores over the years. This rapid growth in the adoption of protein hydrolysate ingredients reflects a global trend, owing to which China is witnessing the launch of a large number of infant and toddler formula products besides other notably growing countries such as the US, Vietnam, South Korea and Germany.
Stakeholders Focus on Product Innovations to Improve Taste & Reduce the Bitter Taste of Protein Hydrolysate Ingredients
Manufacturers are significantly focusing on the development of protein hydrolysate ingredients with reduced bitterness as hydrolysates impart a bitter taste in food products. Several enzymes are also launched in the market, which helps reduce the bitterness of protein hydrolysate ingredients. Ingredients are focusing on developing ingredients that can be added to food & beverage products without compromising the original taste.
As a majority of key players in the protein hydrolysate ingredients market are launching novel products and expanding their whey proteins hydrolysate ingredients portfolio, the whey protein hydrolysate ingredients segment is on the verge of becoming saturated. While companies are expanding their production capacities to meet the growing demand for protein hydrolysate ingredients, increasing investments in the production of whey powder are resulting in cut-throat competition among the existing players in the protein hydrolysate ingredients market. As more new market players enter the protein hydrolysate ingredients, it is most likely that the protein hydrolysate ingredients market will arrive at a saturation point where production growth will either meet or even outpace the demand.
