The market for soy protein ingredients is projected to reach USD 10.19 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 7.4 %. Nearly 85 percent of the world’s soybeans are processed, or "crushed," annually into soybean meal and oil. Around 98 percent of the soybean meal that is crushed is further processed into animal feed with the balance used to make soy flour and proteins, which comprise the soy protein ingredient market.

In recent times Soy protein garnered much attention from consumers, manufacturers and researchers as It’s one of the few plant proteins that has a complete amino acid profile making it a popular choice amongst consumers on account of health benefits. Its functional properties allow for specific applications which include adhesives, asphalts, resins, cleaning materials, cosmetics, inks, pleather, paints, paper coatings, pesticides/fungicides, plastics, polyesters, and textile fibres.

The South American market is propelled by demand for sports and nutrition products by athletes, body builders and recuperating patients. Additionally weight management category is also growing where protein is the main constituent ingredient. A huge lactose intolerant population that drives demand for alternate dairy substitutes such as Soy protein characterizes Asia and South America. Soy protein ingredient market faces a hurdle in growth due to presence of non-nutritional components and risk to allergies; however, ongoing research is anticipated to overcome this.

The United States is the leading soy protein producer and exporter; South America is the second fastest growing market after Asia. In South America, Brazil is the largest market for Soy protein followed by Argentina. The growing population and disposable incomes have made this region an area of immense potential and opportunities.

Increasing health claims and acknowledgement by forums and government bodies is making soy protein increasingly popular in the market. The major companies dominating the South American market are ADM, Cargill, Dupont, CHS, KERRY GROUP, Linyi Shansong Biologicals Products Co. Ltd, Shandong Sinoglory Group Co. Ltd.
