Presently, the dairy market in Africa is less developed in the world and produces 5% of total world milk production. It also has the lowest per capita milk consumption among the continents. However, steady economic development in the last decade has resulted in the continuous development of the dairy sector and growing demand for value-added food, including milk and its derivatives products. The whey market in the region is least developed; however, expanding the intra-African milk trade and developing larger regional markets will be an important aspect for the future of the whey protein market in Africa. African whey protein industry stood at $289.8 million in 2020 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% to reach $383.1 million by 2026.

The young population mostly drives Africa’s whey protein market. The continent has 200 million people aged between 16 to 24 years old and is expected to be doubled within the next 25 years. A growing young population will drive the whey protein market as there is an increasing trend among youngsters to consume dietary supplements. The infant formula market in Africa is in the initial stage of its growth, and there is a tremendous opportunity to grow further in the coming years with increasing consumer spending power. Moreover, growing awareness about health and wellness has also increased the demand for high-quality nutritional products among the general population.

Furthermore, the food and beverage consumption in the continent is projected to rise to $544 billion by 2020 more than any other category over the next decade. This will create an opportunity for the whey protein market to produce a wide range of whey-based food and beverage products. In the last 7 to 8 years, the whey industry in Africa has made decent progress, but the lack of infrastructure, climatic problems, poverty, and political instability are some of the many factors that restrain the whey protein industry in Africa.

South Africa is a relatively developed country amongst the other countries in the African region. It leads the whey protein market with a market share of 53% of the total African whey protein industry, followed by Egypt with 15% of market share and Nigeria with 4% of whey protein market share.
