Industry Trends

Milk protein hydrolysate Market size exceeded USD 985 million in 2020 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of over 6.8% from 2021 to 2027. Significant applications in healthcare and food & beverage industries will contribute toward the milk protein hydrolysate industry expansion.

Milk protein hydrolysates are offered to infants as a valuable source of protein as they contain whey, which includes lactoglobulin and lactalbumin. Infants, who are allergic to cow’s milk protein are supplemented with these hydrolysates as these formulas break casein into pieces, which is found in cow’s milk. Moreover, they remove intact protein molecules, which may cause allergic reactions while maintaining the nutritional value of milk.

Increasing livestock production, mainly poultry, cattle, aquaculture, and swine, owing to their high protein and amino acids will drive industry statistics. The increasing awareness about animal health among livestock farmers will favor industry growth. The growing investments and financial aid in livestock farming to cater to the growing meat demand supported by technological advances in processing equipment will propel milk protein hydrolysate market share.

Increasing demand for dietary nutrients and sports supplements will boost market demand from whey product type

Milk protein hydrolysate market from whey product type is anticipated to exceed USD 415 million by 2027. Whey protein hydrolysates act as a source of amino acids, aiding in the reduction of various diseases, and these are widely used as supplements in clinical nutrition. Whey protein hydrolysates improve nutritional status and gut liver function in specific patient groups and prevent loss of lean body mass during hospitalization. Whey proteins form a significant protein of milk owing to their low lactose content and presence of essential amino acids. They are a high source of nutrients and help in improving strength and muscle gain, fueling milk protein hydrolysate industry demand across the globe.

Whey protein is found in the watery portion of milk and is consumed in several forms including shakes, protein bars, and meal replacements. The consumption of whey promotes muscle growth, lowers blood pressure, reduces inflammation, and enhances the body’s antioxidant defense. These proteins are processed into protein rich commercial products and utilized in sports & nutrition, baby foods, and food & beverage industries. The increasing awareness for dietary nutrient content and its effect on the metabolism of the body will drive the demand for whey protein hydrolysates.

Intensifying usage of enzymatic technology for high protein production product is likely to boost market size

Milk protein hydrolysate market from enzymatic hydrolysis segment is anticipated to reach over USD 1,160 million by 2027. Enzymatic process is mainly used to improve the functional properties of proteins. Most of the manufacturing industries are using this technology as the process offers high protein content, foaming, and emulsifying properties. The enzymatic technology is used to produce protein hydrolysates for protein modification and recovery purposes.

Saturated & monounsaturated fatty acids are easily hydrolyzed by lipolytic enzymes. Enzymatic hydrolysis of proteins is a complex procedure owing to several peptide bonds. Environmental factors, such as pH and temperature, affect the enzyme reaction. The process also avoids the extremes of physical & chemical treatment and minimizes undesirable reactions that can destroy valuable components in proteins.

Ease of absorption and usage are likely to boost market growth from powder form
