Market Insights and Analyst View:

Fish protein hydrolysate is a product made from fish or fish material by the method of protein hydrolyzation. Thus, fish protein hydrolysate is a mixture of broken proteins. Fish protein hydrolysates are reported to have a number of improved properties compared to the protein of origin, namely improved functional properties and bioactive properties such as anti-oxidative or anti-hypertensive activities. Recently, fish protein hydrolysate is also started to be used as cryoprotectants for frozen fish products. These are the factors expected to drive the fish protein hydrolysate market growth during the forecast period.

Growth Drivers and Challenges:

There is a rapid growth in the production of fisheries and aquaculture industry driven by the development of fishing technologies. With rising production of fisheries across the globe, fish waste is produced in a substantial amount. According to The National Institute of Biotechnology Information (NCBI), about two-thirds of the total fish production is discarded as waste.  Fish waste can be converted into value-added products such as FPH by adding various proteolytic enzymes. The skin, heads, bones, viscera, and liver of fish waste is a good source of amino acids, antioxidants, proteins, and peptides. The waste has also been found to possess desirable bioactive and functional peptides. Thus, companies are highly emphasizing on using fish waste as protein for various industries including food & beverages, animal feed, and nutraceuticals. Thus, increasing fish waste by aquaculture and fisheries further drives the fish protein hydrolysate market growth.

Moreover, FPH is a good source of protein and nutrients such as phosphorus, calcium, and other minerals. It helps prevent the spread of infectious diseases and boosts animal immunity against fungi, bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Regular consumption of FPH by broiler chickens helps in their muscle development. FPHs can enhance animals' metabolic systems, which protects them from the risk of diseases and infections. Thus, the nutritional benefits of fish protein hydrolysate relating to animal health drive its demand among animal feed industries.

However, a lack of a well-organized collection, storage, and transportation model creates further hurdles, whereby fish by-products may get wasted. Also, unforeseeable roadblocks prevent the smooth movement of fresh food supply chains, resulting in the wastage and restraining market demand.

Lockdowns, travel restrictions, and business shutdowns in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central America, and the Middle East & Africa hampered the growth of several industries including food & beverages, pharmaceuticals & nutraceuticals, personal care, animal nutrition, etc. The shutdown of manufacturing units disturbed global supply chains, production activities, delivery schedules, and essential and nonessential product sales. Various companies witnessed delays in product deliveries and a slump in their product sales in 2020, which hampered the fish protein hydrolysate market. The shortage of workforce and limited supply of raw materials also led to a halt in operations and processes across the globe during the COVID-19 pandemic. These factors negatively impacted the market growth in the pandemic.

    Various trade barriers imposed by governing bodies to prevent the spread of COVID-19 hampered the imports of raw materials. China, Vietnam, India, Bangladesh, and Egypt are among the major countries producing raw material, which leads to dependency on these countries in other parts of the world. Bans on international imports and exports in many countries interrupted the supply of raw materials during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    However, in 2021, various economies resumed operations as several governments revoked the previously imposed restrictions, which positively impacted the global marketplace. Moreover, manufacturers were permitted to operate at full capacities, which helped them overcome the demand and supply gaps.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      What are the opportunities for fish protein hydrolysate in the global market?

      The fishery industry is growing due to improved aquaculture production, changing cultural preferences, and surging demand for fish and seafood. The increasing number of fisheries generates a large volume of waste almost every year, estimated at nearly 60% of the biomass. The waste is processed and used to manufacture fish protein hydrolysate. In aquaculture, FPH demand is gaining massive momentum as it enhances the metabolic system of species that protect them from the risk of diseases and infections. Hence, aquafeed producers are increasingly adopting effective feeding practices and incorporating health-promoting compounds such as proteins, hydrolysates, and bioactive peptides, including fish protein hydrolysate. Due to these factors, the growing aquaculture industry is expected to create lucrative opportunities for the FPH market in the coming years.

      What are the key drivers for the growth of the global fish protein hydrolysate market?

      The World Organization for Animal Health states that more than 50 wildlife diseases can seriously impact livestock and public health. In this case, implementation of appropriate nutritional strategies that boost immunity, develop animal health, promote intestinal integrity and functionality is critical to enhance animal stress tolerance and treat various diseases. Thus, fish protein hydrolysates for animal feed applications are used to fulfill the nutritional demands of livestock. FPH is a good source of protein and nutrients such as phosphorus, calcium, and other minerals. It helps prevent the spread of infectious diseases and boosts animal immunity against fungi, bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Regular consumption of FPH by broiler chickens helps in their muscle development. Enzymes present in fish protein hydrolysate aid in the gut morphology of broilers by facilitating the digestion of fibrous food, including grains and soybean meal.

      Based on the application, which segment is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period?

      Based on the application, animal nutrition segment is hold a significant share in the market. Fish protein hydrolysate is used largely in animal nutrition owing to various benefits offered.
