Protein is a macronutrient that the human body needs to repair tissue, develop muscle, and produce enzymes and hormones. It is one of the components that make up skin, muscle, and bone. In addition to being present in a wide range of specially made drinks, bars, and powders, protein can also be found in foods including dairy, eggs, red meat, chicken, fish, nuts, tofu, and legumes. In addition, protein supplements can be beneficial as a component of their overall dietary strategy. Bodybuilders and sports athletes frequently utilize protein supplements as a form of nutritional and bodybuilding supplement to enhance their protein intake without simultaneously increasing their intake of carbohydrates and fats. When taken directly, these supplements have a higher protein content than other protein sources.

According to this analysis, the Global Protein Supplement Market was valued at ~US$ 15 billion in 2017. It is estimated to be ~US$ 20 billion by 2022 and is expected to reach a market size of ~US$ 30 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of ~7% during the forecast period (2022-2028). Due to changing lifestyles, there will be an increased reliance on supplements to meet daily nutritional needs, which will increase the demand for protein supplements.

Youth’s demand for protein supplements is rising, especially among athletes because they offer several advantages like decreasing cholesterol, developing muscle, boosting strength, preventing cancer, boosting immunity, and lowering blood pressure.

Due to growing health consciousness among consumers worldwide during the past few years, consumption of a diet high in protein content has increased dramatically. Furthermore, the growing use of dietary supplements is directly influenced by the aging population as well as the rise in lifestyle-related illnesses like diabetes and obesity.

The market for protein supplements is expected to experience some growth restraints due to the prevalence of less expensive alternatives and various detrimental effects of protein enhancement. Additionally, during the forecast period, negative claims and publicity may pose a threat to the market's expansion.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, customer preferences for nutritional supplements to promote immunity are predicted to increase due to these products' strong efficiency against viral infections and acute respiratory tract disorders, which is expected to drive market demand. Additionally, the rapid spread of COVID-19 has raised consumer worries about health and well-being as a preventative measure against disease, which may support the market trends for protein supplements in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

  • The category includes casein, whey, egg, chicken, beef, dairy, and meat proteins. Animal proteins are typically thought to be complete proteins since they include all of the required amino acids
By Product: The protein powdersegment held the largest market share in 2021. The demand for nutritious food products has increased as a result of changing lifestyles, growing urbanization, and changed dietary choices of consumers, and is likely to drive the market growth of protein powder.

Rising demand for nutritional supplements for athletes to support lean muscle growth, enhance performance, help with weight loss, and increase stamina is anticipated to fuel the expansion of the sports nutrition market over the coming years.
