GIA launches comprehensive analysis of industry segments, trends, growth drivers, market share, size and demand forecasts on the global Whey Protein Ingredients market. The global market for Whey Protein Ingredients is projected to exceed 2.0 billion pounds (lbs) by 2022, driven by multiple benefits offered by whey proteins in exercise recovery, weight management, healthy aging, and overall health and wellness.

Whey protein is a byproduct of the cheese manufacturing process, and represents the watery part of milk separated from the curd. Whey is perceived as a whole food as it contains all the 20 essential amino acids required for healthy functioning of the human body. Representing a mixture of immunoglobins, alpha-lactalbumin, beta-lactoglobulin, and bovine serum albumin, whey protein offers numerous anabolic benefits. Myriad health and wellness benefits of whey protein ingredients that are driving its widespread adoption include enhanced muscle growth as well as muscle protein synthesis; positive effects on immune system and attributes to improve nutrient content of routine diets; enhanced athletic performance; aiding weight management; and as an effective and efficient milk substitute in several food products such as nutritional beverages, infant formula and functional food supplements. The continued use and diversity of whey protein-based nutritional products is expanding beyond its traditional world of sports nutrition and bodybuilding persona to emerge as a major contributor to expansion of the mainstream protein health & wellness offerings including protein bars, shots, and sports drinks to nutritional drinks suitable for everyone including infants, growing children, and ailing and aging adults.

Healthy growth is projected for the market in the coming years driven by the ubiquity of whey protein ingredients in sports nutrition products, food fortification, and clinical nutrition products owing to their ability to boost antioxidant glutathione levels, lower blood pressure, improve liver function, and the potential to reduce cancer rates.
