Global Protein Hydrolysates Market Forecast 2020-2025 –


DUBLIN–()–The “Protein Hydrolysates Market – Forecast (2020 – 2025)” report has been added to’s offering.

Protein Hydrolysates Market size is valued at $844.2m by 2019, and is estimated to reach $1,216.1m by 2025, growing at CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period of 2020-2025.

The Protein Hydrolysates Market growth rate is attributed to the rising demand for protein-based dietary supplements and infant nutrition as they are easier to absorb and digest hence, fostering the market growth. Protein Hydrolysates are basically potential source of bioactive peptides. Protein hydrolysates are mixtures of amino acids, oligopeptides, polypeptides that are manufactured from protein sources using partial hydrolysis.

It is a type of protein that is partly hydrolyzed or digested be consuming, which makes it easier to absorb or digest. Protein hydrolysate is available in form of solid and liquid. It is derived from plants, animals, or milk products. Protein hydrolysates are used in solid and liquid food products listed in special diets or for the patients in order to provide them aNAitional nutritional diet. It is also commonly used for the patients that are unable to take protein form their regular food.

From wide application in manufacturing of dietary supplements, baby food and sports nutrition to the surge in demand for plant-based and animal-based protein hydrolysates, especially from sports industry to increased R&D investments by governmental bodies to overcome limitations of high cost coupled with the rising demand for healthy and nutrient enriched animal feed with growing consciousness about livestock health should stimulate the demand of protein hydrolysate for livestock feed application is anticipated to propel the Protein Hydrolysates Market during the forecast period 2020-2025.

Key Takeaways

Challenges – Protein Hydrolysates Market

High selling price and R&D Costs are High:

The major challenge for the market is that as protein hydrolysates have a huge potential use as a protein source for human consumption, but their production steps involve dehydration that requires high energy supply and is, consequently, very expensive. Another process known as Enzymatic Hydrolysis also is costly owing to the high costs of industrial enzymes. Along with this, the requirements of special treatment to deactivate the enzymatic hydrolysis, coupled with difficulty of the process to obtain hydrolysates of particular molecular mass are aNAing to this cost as well.

Moreover, this also increases the cost of end products and leads to rise in cheaper counterfeit food products increasing in the market, and further impacting the market. Hence, the high cost of R&D and production challenge the market over the forecast period 2020-2025.
