The major factors driving the protein ingredients market include the increase in demand and consumption of functional food & beverages, growing consumer awareness about healthy diets among people, and increasing demand for protein as a nutrition and functional ingredients.
Increasing demand for proteins as nutritional and functional ingredients is driving the market
Protein ingredients sourced from both animals and plants are well-known for their emulsification, gelation/viscosity, water-binding/hydration, foaming, aeration properties; other attributes of protein ingredients include thickening ability, stabilizing ability, and solubility. These functionalities, along with nutritional aspects of proteins, are a major advantage to end-user industries, and are, thus, one of the major market drivers. Another advantage associated with protein sources used for specific functional properties is that they are often less price-sensitive than those that are used only for their nutritional properties. This often benefits the end-user industries with cost advantages. In major applications such as food & beverages, the use of protein ingredients continues to grow with the increasing demand for improved functionalities
Soy proteins with GM origin pose health risks and are a restraint for market growth.
Research studies have cited many health and environmental risks associated with the production and consumption of genetically modified (GM) commodities including soybeans. There are apprehensions that in the long term, GM soy alters the enzymatic activity and metabolic activity in the liver. Hence, they are opposed by the various industry stakeholders, including regulatory bodies of countries in Europe and Asian Pacific regions, who are demanding non-genetically modified (non-GMO) soybeans.
