Protein Hydrolysates Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Animal Protein Hydrolysates, Plant Protein Hydrolysates), By Application (Dietary Supplements, Infant Nutrition, Animal Nutrition) Others and Regional Forecast, 2022-2029

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI102287 | Status : Ongoing



The global protein hydrolysates market is expected to witness substantial growth owing to the rising demand for protein-based dietary supplements, and infant nutrition. Protein hydrolysates are mixtures of oligopeptides, polypeptides, and amino acids that are manufactured from protein sources using partial hydrolysis. Short-chain peptides from hydrolyzed proteins have higher nutritive value and can be utilized more effectively, thereby increasing their demand in sports nutrition.

The demand for protein hydrolysates in infant nutrition is increasing as they are easier to absorb and digest. In recent years, the demand for cost-effective, plant-derived protein hydrolysates has increased due to the rising popularity of plant-based products.  Protein hydrolysates are a potential source of bioactive peptides. Various peptides having anti-microbial, anti-thrombotic, anti-hypertensive, anti-cancer, anti-oxidative, and other effects have been identified. Consuming protein hydrolysates containing these peptides can be helpful in the prevention of many diseases.
