US Wheat Protein Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the US Wheat Protein Market according to our research experts:

Food and Beverages is the largest segment by End User.

  • The F&B sector witnessed the highest demand, followed by the animal feed sector in 2022. The growing demand for wheat protein in bakeries, breakfast cereals, and meat alternatives products is driving market growth. Thus, the F&B segment of the market is projected to register a CAGR of 1.99% from 2023-2029. Wheat protein is viewed as a more favorable source of plant-based protein by the vegetarian and vegan communities. A variety of traditional meat-based items are increasingly being replaced by substitutes made with wheat protein as part of the plant-based trend.
  • The animal feed sector is projected to register the highest CAGR of 3.61% during the forecast period. The capabilities of vital wheat gluten, which work as an appropriate and highly functional alternative to fish- and animal-based feeds, have contributed to the enormous rise of the animal feed industry. In 2021, the 10% lower production of hard winter wheat in the US resulted in its higher price by the end of 2021, hindering its growth rate. 
  • The personal care and cosmetics segment is expected to grow the fastest, registering a CAGR of 4.97% during the forecast period. Currently, the utilization of wheat protein in cosmetics and skincare is very minimal. In recent years, hydrolysates have found their way into the sector as a natural ingredient in skincare and hair care products. Hydrolyzed wheat protein is known to increase the firmness of the skin and helps to form a film to retain moisture and provide luminosity. It also prevents the skin from drying out, diminishes the appearance of wrinkles, and nourishes and repairs hair. Only 0.01% of the hydrolysates used in the US go to the personal care sector, but this is anticipated to change in the coming years.
