Selbyville, Delaware, July 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As per the report published by Global Market Insights Inc., the Antimicrobial Protein Hydrolysates Market for Food & Pet Food Applications was estimated at USD 194.5 million in 2021 and is estimated to reach a valuation of over $363.5 million by 2028, progressing at a CAGR of 9% from 2022 to 2028. The report provides a detailed analysis of wavering market trends, market size & estimations, top winning strategies, major investment pockets, drivers & opportunities, and competitive scenario.

Enzymatic protein hydrolysates are widely used as functional or nutraceutical foods. Protein hydrolysates made from micro-organisms deliver various advantages, such as lower water consumption, higher growth rate, and carbon-neutral compounds. Notably, plant-based proteins are known to provide emulsification, solubility, and foam & gel formation ability while animal-based proteins offer higher ACE-inhibitory activity & radical scavenging capacity, and antimicrobial & antioxidant properties. These factors are boosting the utilization of enzymatic protein hydrolysates across varied applications, which is likely to bolster the antimicrobial protein hydrolysates market share for food & pet food applications over the forecast period.
