Bioactive Protein Fractions and Peptides Market: Snapshot

Bioactive peptides from food proteins have been researched over the last few decades to clearly explain their biological potency in all of the major systems of the human body, such as the immune, nervous, cardiovascular, and digestive systems.

The global bioactive protein fractions and peptides market is forecasted to witness growth as some bioactive peptides have gained popularity for their antimicrobial roles and humoral and cell-mediated immune functions as well. Those bioactive peptides, thus, have the prospects of being included as ingredients in pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, and functional foods,where their biological activities may help in the prevention and control of diseases. However, more insightful study on the pharmacokinetics of immunomodulatory peptides in vivo and clinical studies are required to reinforce their therapeutic potency.

Recent scientific evidence make suggestions that food proteins do not serve as nutrients only, but can also adjust the physiological functions of a body. These physiological functions arecontrolled by some peptides that are encrypted in the nativesequences of protein. These bioactive peptides can then exert health beneficial properties and thus are regarded as a lead compound for the production of functional foods or nutraceuticals.

Over the past few decades, a broad range of food-derived bioactive peptide sequences has been recognized, with several activities beneficial to health. It is this discovery that is expected to propel the growth of global bioactive protein fractions and peptides market over the forecast timeframe.  

However, the commercial usage of these bioactive peptides has been postponed due to the absence of scalable and appropriate methods of production. The global bioactive protein fractions and peptides market is estimated to be restrained by factors such as lack of high gastro-intestinal digestibility, variable absorption rate, and proper exploration of the mechanisms of action. In addition to that, lack of well-designed clinical trials to provide the substantial evidence for potential health claims.

Bioactive protein fractions and peptides are specific protein fragments found in various foods, consuming which can have a positive impact on health conditions and body functions; sometimes ultimately influence health. Bioactive protein fractions and peptides are peptides that can modulate physiological functions with drug- or hormone-like activity and binding interactions to specific receptors on target cells in order to trigger specific physiological responses.

Bioactive protein fractions and peptides are also considered as biologically active regulators, which can prevent microbial degradation and oxidation in foods. Bioactive protein fractions and peptides are also aid in enhancing the effectiveness of the treatment of various diseases and disorders, thereby improving the quality of life for many patients.

Bioactive Protein Fractions and Peptides Market Dynamics

Bioactive Protein Fractions and Peptides to Witness High Demand in the Bakery Industry

The recent developments in the bakery industry have been characterized by an upsurge in industrialization and scale of operations. However, it has been coupled with plummeted growth of small artisan bakeries across the world. Nevertheless, large bakeries still need to cater to the consumer expectations that remain in sync with the authenticity and reliability of freshness of bakery products from small bakers.

Thereby, leading players in the bakery industry are adopting strategies to make use of functional ingredients, such as bioactive protein fractions and peptides, as oxidizing agents that retain the freshness of bakery products. Leading players in the bioactive protein fractions and peptides market are capitalizing on the trend of replacing chemical additives with organic ingredients to improve the consistency, naturalness, and freshness of baked food products.

Negative Effects of Processing on the Bioactive Protein Fractions and Peptide Profiles may Impact Market Growth

Bioactive protein fractions and peptides market is witnessing incremental growth with the increasing demand for health-benefiting ingredients in food products. However, incidents of protein degradation and peptide profiles getting damaged due to processing have made a negative impact on growth of the bioactive protein fractions and peptides market.

Various sources of bioactive protein fractions and contain many naturally occurring compounds, which include carbohydrates, lipids, and secondary metabolites. These compounds interact with the bioactive protein fractions and peptides in food matrix, and this can affect the profile of peptides generated as a result of various processes. Apart from these challenges in retaining the nutritional qualities, players in the bioactive protein fractions and peptides market are also tackling with limitations of the commercializing the process of naturally extracting bioactive peptides from food sources.

These factors are negatively impacting growth of the bioactive protein fractions and peptides market.

Increasing Geriatric Population and Prevalence of Malnutrition-related Diseases will Boost Sales

According to the U.S. census bureau, over 47.8 million people in the U.S. aged 65 or older in 2015, and the number is likely to increase nearly twice higher than that to reach 98.2 million by the end of 2060. The rise in the geriatric population in the U.S. and increasing prevalence of various health issues associated with nutritional food intake among the elderly population is inducing demand for additional health supplements such as bioactive protein fractions and peptides.

Manufacturers and distributors in the bioactive protein fractions and peptides market are likely to adopt appropriate business strategies to focus on improving nutritional intake among the geriatric population. This is likely to emerge as a preeminent trend in the bioactive protein fractions and peptides market in the upcoming years.
