Fish Protein Hydrolysate Market size to exceed $558mn by 2025

Fish Protein Hydrolysate Market size is set to surpass USD 555 million by 2025; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc.

Fish protein hydrolysate is produced by enzymatic and acid hydrolysis process, containing 2 to 20 amino acids and minimum 70% of hydrolyzed protein. It has high protein content owing to the solubilization of the protein during hydrolysis and removal of non-protein insoluble compounds such as fat. Fish protein hydrolysates find extensive uses in animal feed market owing to their ability to produce premium large or small peptides, which perform nutritional and regulatory functions in poultry, livestock, and fish.

Short reaction time to drive the adoption of acid hydrolysis technology

The global fish protein hydrolysate market size from acid hydrolysis witnessed a consumption of over 17.5 kilo tons in 2018. Acid hydrolysis technique requires the treatment of fish with strong solvents and chemicals. This technique enables rapid and efficient production of fish protein hydrolysates as it requires harsh conditions, thus necessitating the reduction of reaction time to save production cost.

Acid hydrolysis is an economic and suitable method to produce fish protein hydrolysate primarily for animal feed sector which represents ample market opportunities. This process allows 50% - 70% of hydrolysis when 4 mol/L of hydrochloric acid is used at 100°C for 90 minutes. This indicates, the process allows a higher degree of hydrolysis as compared to enzymatic hydrolysis which ensures faster production.

Liquid fish protein hydrolysates are generally produced by the enzyme-aided cold pressing of fish which preserves the amino acids, hormones, vitamins, enzymes and oils in the product. It is an ideal fertilizer, being a rich nutrient source, which degrade slowly and release nitrogen into the soil. The product can be used together with chemical fertilizers which is driving the market outlook.

Liquid form is highly water soluble which should drive market demand from conventional water irrigation and liquid foliar applications. The product is organic in nature and does not contain any odor-masking chemicals. Global organic fertilizer market demand surpassed USD 6.5 billion in 2019 owing to favorable government initiatives to promote their usage and rising demand for organic food which represents tremendous market opportunities.

Rich protein content to stimulate Atlantic salmon adoption as a source for fish protein hydrolysate

The global fish protein hydrolysate market outlook from Atlantic salmon fish as a source should register gains over 4.5%by the end of 2025. Atlantic salmon hydrolysate is a rich protein source for chickens and improves growth performance when compared to fish meal and plant protein diet, thus accelerating market share. When the product is used to supplement starter diets, it enhances the development of the small intestine in broiler chickens.

The addition of salmon protein hydrolysate to broiler chicken feed offers the potential to improve the absorption of nutrients in the intestine. It is a rich source of nitrogenous compounds such as hydroxyproline and taurine which are associated with improved growth rate in Atlantic salmon. The product contains a well-balanced composition of amino acids in compliance with the recommended amino acid reference established by the Food and Agriculture Organization.

Animal feed application to dominate fish protein hydrolysate industry share

Global fish protein hydrolysate market demand from animal feed should surpass over USD 190 million by 2025. The product regulates the fatty acid composition and lipid collection in fish tissue when used as fish feed. They optimize the nutrition of domestic animals, thereby enhancing well-being and gut health. Global animal feed market witnessed a consumption of over 1.05 billion tons in 2017 which offers market opportunities.

Fish protein hydrolysates offer highly bioactive and digestible peptides which have antihypertensive, immunomodulatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. They confer disease resistance, feed efficiency and growth performance in chickens, fish, calves and pigs which should augment market share. These substances offer greater energy & lipid digestibility as compared to plant protein diets as they lack growth inhibitors.

Growing preference for organic infant formulations in Europe to stimulate fish protein hydrolysates demand

Growing demand for organic, convenient and healthy infant nutrition should boost fish protein hydrolysate industry growth in Europe. Market demand in Germany should witness over 4.5% gains by 2025 pertaining to increasing birth rate which has led to rising demand for baby food. These products are essential for protein fortification on account of highly soluble peptides & protein contents in them.

Germany infant food market size surpassed USD 1.15 billion in 2019 owing to rise in the female workforce and growing awareness regarding infant health which should create market opportunities. These hydrolysates are a rich source of nonessential & essential amino acids, vitamins and micronutrients which help prevent stunted growth in infants by complementing breast milk.

Fish protein hydrolysates help regulate blood glucose homeostasis and influence blood sugar which increases their suitability for the nutritional supplement industry. They help nourish & protect joints which makes them ideal for athletes engaged in long distance running, mountain climbing or weight training.

Certain market players are focusing on acquiring other companies to widen their geographic distribution network and product portfolio. The market leaders include ScanBio, Hofseth Biocare, United Fish, Bio-Marine Ingredients, SOPROPECHE, Omega Protein, Weishardt, Diana Aqua, Triple Nine, and Sociedad Pesquera Landes Sa.
