Some of the most notable trends, developments, shaping the future of global potato protein market are spelled out below:

  • As a shift from animal protein to alternatives is witnessed, it is rightly pointed that it will lead to demand for plant based proteins such as potato proteins. Multiple factors are at play here. One, there are sustainability concerns. As environment takes center-stage in choices made by consumers, plant based variety of proteins gets a thumbs up. Second, animal rights are a heated topic in this day and age and thus propel the potato protein market further. Besides, as meat proteins have started to be related with high cholesterol levels, the demand is taking a hit, paving way for growth in potato protein market.
  • As sports and outdoorsy physical activity see rising popularity so do need for protein shakes and bars. Besides, there are other activities such as gym memberships that are going up, taking demand for protein drinks and food up. This is good news for the potato protein market.

Potato protein is an industrial by product of the potato starch, obtained during starch separation, which can also be extracted from the tuber itself. These potato proteins have been shown to be equally as nutritious as soy and egg proteins, and due to well-balanced pattern of amino acids and high digestibility, they are considered to be highly suitable for feed applications. In addition, increasing consumer inclination toward vegan diet has led to surge in the demand for potato proteins extracted from organic potatoes which are more sustainable than animal proteins and can be used to make macarons, meringue, mayonnaise, and improved textures in cake. Moreover, rising demand for animal protein substitutes in sport nutrition and nutritional supplements has been envisaged to directly influence the development of potato protein market.
