Value-Added Protein Marketplace”  was presented at the 2014 Protein Trends & Technologies Seminar by Christopher Shanahan, MSc, Global Program Manager of Food, Ingredients & Feed, Frost & Sullivan.

Abstract: Protein fortification is increasingly an option for meeting the global challenges of nutritional deficiencies in the developing world, while combating the rise of certain disease in developed economies. However, the current protein ingredient supplier space is highly fragmented, which makes quickly identifying and addressing opportunities and threats to this market segment critical for long term success. This presentation discussed current factors boosting the demand for protein ingredients in 2013 and 2014 as well as other key Mega Trends creating both opportunities and threats across the global protein value chain. Its specific focus was on providing an overview of global protein ingredients-sourced from both animals and plants-including insights into market dynamics by product type, region, and end application.

Excerpt from the written summary of this presentation: Worldwide, protein ingredients sales amount to about eight million metric tons and USD 46.83 billion in revenues, according to the market research firm Frost & Sullivan. That said, the protein ingredient space is significantly fragmented, as shown in the following analysis & forecast of value-added protein ingredients .

“There are many sources of protein and much competition for a limited number of end applications,” said Christopher Shanahan, Frost & Sullivan’s Global Program Manager of Food, Ingredients & Feed. “This makes the importance of quickly identifying and addressing opportunities and threats critical.”

From 2013 to 2020, Frost & Sullivan projects a 5.7% growth in global demand and 7% increase in revenues. It predicts the revenue growth will not only be due to rising prices, but also demand from the food industry for specialized protein ingredients; increased demand in emerging economies; and the increased popularity due to promotion of health benefits.
