Whey protein ingredients are referred to as globular proteins which are extracted from whey, a liquid obtained as a derivative of cheese. Consumers are preferring whey protein ingredients due to their high protein content as compared to egg, soy and other dairy products. Whey proteins are widely consumed in the form of nutritional supplements owing to various health benefits related with them. For instance, whey proteins are widely used to improve lipid glucose levels and insulin response, thus stimulating reduction in arterial stiffness and blood pressure. Moreover, whey protein ingredients are also used with denatured powder to deliver balanced infant nutrition. Also, whey protein ingredients reduce hepatic cholesterol levels especially among the geriatric population. Thus, growth in demand for whey protein supplements across youngsters coupled with emergence of whey protein-based infant nutrition formulations as well as advancements in production techniques are some of the major aspects driving the market growth.

Increasing health awareness and rising number of health conscious consumers, rising per capita disposable incomes, rising number of gyms and fitness centers are some of the key aspects driving the growth of global whey protein ingredients market. Also, all the consumer groups such as athletes, bodybuilders and recreational users, fitness centers and health clubs act as central distribution centers for whey protein supplements. With the increasing number of health clubs across the globe, several opportunities are expected to emerge for whey protein manufacturers over the forecast period.

However, high costs of whey protein coupled with rising competition from plant based proteins are some major factors hampering the growth of the global whey protein ingredients market.

By type, whey protein concentrates 80 (WPC80) accounts for the major share of the global whey protein ingredients market. The market is witnessing growth on account of increasing number of working women and rising preference towards whey protein based infant formula. Moreover, owing to increasing health consciousness among consumers as well as rising per capita disposable incomes, the demand for whey protein is anticipated to witness a rapid surge over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is projected to be the most attractive market on account of rising demand for whey protein ingredients from dietary supplements and infant nutrition. The market for whey protein ingredients in North America is driven by the increasing number of health clubs and rising trend towards bodybuilding especially among the young population.

The global whey protein ingredients market can be categorized on the basis of type as:

  • Whey Protein Concentrates 80 (WPC 80)
  • Whey Protein Concentrates 35 (WPC 35)
  • Whey Protein Isolates
  • Whey Protein Hydrosylates
  • Demineralized Whey Protein

Whey protein concentrates 80 was the most dominant segment in the global whey protein ingredients market in 2016 and is projected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period from 2017 to 2025. This is due to high demand for pure grades of whey protein ingredients especially from pharmaceutical and sports nutrition applications. Increasing demand for WPC 80 in several specialized applications such as infant nutrition, sports beverages and medical formulations is projected to drive the market over the forecast period. WPC 80 is obtained after the removal of non-protein ingredients present in the sweet whey and contains 80% pure protein. Additionally, owing to high content of amino acids as well as rising demand from sports nutrition application is accelerating the demand for WPC 80 since it is beneficial in growing muscle size while reducing fat loss. It is derived through several techniques such as ultrafiltration, diafiltration, ion-exchange and electrodialysis and can be used in concentrated, fluid and dry form. Various characteristic properties of WPC 80 such as solubility, gelation and water binding are driving the demand for WPC 80 in several end use applications. Whey protein isolates accounted for the second largest share in the global market owing to increasing applications of protein in the preparation of packaged meat, dairy and pharmaceutical products. Furthermore, rising demand for whey proteins especially from middle class population group in developing economies of the Asia Pacific region is projected to bolster the overall demand over the forecast period.
