Germany is the major whey protein manufacturer in Europe. The whey protein industry in Germany is almost similar to that of the U.K. and France. Germany represents around 16% of the total whey protein market in Europe and is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 7.2% until 2026. The application of whey in the dietary supplement industry is highest compared to its application in the beverages and food industry.

The major drivers of the whey protein market in Germany are changing socio-demographics trends. The growing awareness about the negative environmental impact of livestock farming has created a demand for alternative protein sources, paving the way for whey protein market. Increasing acceptance of whey protein for weight loss, clinical nutrition from the aging population to maintain muscle mass is expected to maintain the healthy consumption rate during the forecast period. Strong demand from the infant formula sector is another driving factor of the industry. The development of a strong supply chain, reduced production cost, and food safety are the issues concerning the whey protein manufacturers. Sports and performance nutrition are the opportunity segments for the industry.

The dietary supplement is the major application segment in Germany, accounting for around 43% of all the whey protein applications. However, the application of whey protein in the food and beverage industry, together, is expected to overtake the application in dietary supplements towards the end of the forecast period. Investments in research and development to innovate new food and beverages products with whey content due to growing demand from the health-conscious population is expected to strengthen the growth in the sector.

The cost of manufacturing whey protein is high in Germany. However, the manufacturers are focused on producing high-quality products to create a competitive advantage. In addition, the manufacturers adhere to strict Government guidelines to maintain the “made in Germany” brand, which meets the international food safety standard according to certified FSSC 22000:2005.

State-of-the-art techniques and processes allow whey protein producers in Germany to separate various whey sources and supply quality products. Germany's government-funded research and development programs are core to its strong small and medium enterprises. In addition, the close collaboration of universities, research institutes, and manufacture provides continuous optimization and innovation of whey protein and its products. It also helps manufacturers optimize the manufacturing techniques and processing procedures, which helps to reduce the cost of whey protein products.
