It is usually found in meat & animal products such as beef, dairy, fish, & poultry and plant-based products including soy, beans, nuts, & whole grains. Modified high-quality protein sources include different types of protein supplements in the form of powder, shakes, and bars. Protein supplements build, repair and maintain muscles, skin, and hair in the body. They also help reduce weight, lower cholesterol, strengthen immunity, prevent cardiovascular diseases, and offer several other benefits.
These are generally bought from online fitness stores owing to the availability of numerous options and convenience of consumers. The growth of the global protein supplement market is driven by an increase in health-related concerns, which has led to a shift of individuals toward fitness centers, gyms, and health clubs. Furthermore, rise in obesity rates and growth in disposable income are some other factors that drive the growth of the market. However, the presence of cheaper substitutes, side-effects of protein supplements, and negative publicity & claims are expected to hamper the protein supplement market growth during the forecast period. Growth in demand from the health-conscious young population and the introduction of protein supplements in untapped economies are anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for the expansion of the protein supplement market size.
Protein is an essential nutrient and second most abundant substance present in the body after water. Protein supplements are concentrated sources of protein obtained from animals or plants that include dairy, eggs, wheat, soybean, pea, and others. They are present in three common forms, that is, powders, bars, and ready to drink (RTD) liquids. Protein powder is one of the most common protein supplements, available in the market as protein concentrates, protein isolates, and protein hydrolysates
The concentrates consist of 60%-80% protein and 20%–30% fat & carbs; the isolates contain 90%-95% protein; and hydrolysates boost the absorption of protein subsequently enhancing the muscle growth response to exercise. These products are consumed by individuals who strive to build muscle, increase & maintain body mass, or lose weight. Also, people take protein supplements to fulfill the necessary energy and vitamins needed through strenuous workouts as well as to compensate for the nutrients & vitamins loss during the reduction of food intake. Health benefits associated with consuming protein supplements and a rise in fitness concerns among people in different regions drive the protein supplement industry.
In addition, the increase in the number of fitness & training centers, surge in disposable income, and alarming rise in obesity rates also fuel the protein supplement market growth. However, the presence of cheap replacements and false claims coupled with negative publicity is expected to hamper the growth of the protein supplement market size during the forecast period. The rise in protein supplement demand from the health-conscious young population of developing nations as well as the strengthening of distribution channels in untapped regions is expected to provide numerous opportunities for the expansion of the global protein supplement market.
