The Impact of COVID-19 on the Protein Ingredients Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a mixed impact on the protein ingredients market. The positive aspects include the growing inclination of health-conscious consumers towards healthy and protein-rich products. The protein ingredients market is experiencing a positive impact mainly due to the key role of protein in immune system health. During the pandemic, Individuals have become highly focused on boosting immunity and reducing weight, which is likely to increase the demand for protein ingredients. However, this industry has faced some challenges from the manufacturing and distribution point of view. The outbreak has led to massive disruptions in supply chains and caused demand-based fluctuations in the prices of raw materials, which may increase protein ingredient prices. This market has witnessed a slight decline due to the lockdowns imposed across various countries. Protein ingredient manufacturers are facing a shortage in the supply of raw materials in many regions. Moreover, in some regions, lockdowns have been announced to control the pandemic, impacting the ingredient supply chains for food, feed, and health supplements.

Protein ingredients play a vital role in healing and repairing the human body. They are one of the building blocks of body tissue and can also serve as a fuel source. As a fuel, proteins provide as much energy density as carbohydrates. They also help in regulating weight, improving physical strength, lowering muscle loss caused by aging, and mitigating the risk of chronic diseases. As a result, protein ingredients are widely used in the production of foods and beverages, animal feed, nutrition and health supplements, personal care and cosmetic products, and pharmaceuticals. Major factors driving the growth of the protein ingredients market are the growth in the functional foods and beverages market, advancements in ingredient technologies such as microencapsulation, rising demand for livestock products, increasing awareness about the benefits of protein consumption, and growing consumer inclination towards protein-rich diets. Additionally, the growing potential of insect and plant proteins, untapped emerging markets such as Southeast AsiaLatin America, and the Middle East & Africa, and increasing consumer inclination towards the vegan diet are expected to provide significant growth opportunities for protein ingredient manufacturers in the coming years.

The pandemic has also led to the adoption of best practice models by the alternative protein industry, which earlier proved too restrictive during the outbreak. Governments of some countries announced relaxations in some of the competition law requirements placed on protein ingredient-based products. For instance, the FDA relaxed its guidelines for selling plant protein-based meat products. Earlier, due to labeling concerns, the FDA did not allow direct-to-consumer sales of Impossible raw plant-based meat burgers. Insects are now also being considered a solution for food shortages that may come as a consequence of the coronavirus outbreak. Edible insects are incredibly sustainable and only use a fraction of the feed, water, and resources required by traditional livestock and other alternative protein sources, which is likely to ease pressures on the global food supply chain.
