The global Protein Supplement market is projected to be valued at $42.81 Billion by 2030, recording a CAGR of around 8.5% during the forecast period. Protein supplements are a kind of nutritional and bodybuilding supplement that bodybuilders and sports athletes use to increase their diet and increase their protein consumption without significantly increasing the amount they consume in carbs or other kinds of accompanying nutrients. They work to offset nutrient deficiencies, provide energy, and prevent muscle loss while exercising. Supplements that are comprised of protein are popular because they contain higher amounts than other sources when consumed directly.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented outbreaks of infections which prompted consumers to take a more keen interest in their diet and overall health. This has fueled an increase in the protein supplement market which is benefitting from this newfound awareness. In addition, the Chinese CDC has issued nutritional guidelines which include a recommendation of 150-200 grams of protein per day (around 1.5-2.0g/kg body weight) for patients affected with COVID-19.

The Protein Supplement market is divided into six regions: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle East, and Africa. The North American region is projected to dominate the global Protein Supplement market. Functional foods and sports nutrition are the major distribution channels of the North American food market, primarily due to the rising awareness of fitness among U.S., Canada, and Mexico consumers. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecast period. Demand for protein supplement options will be rising in the APAC region due to the trend in snacking options, especially given price point affordability.

With health awareness rising in Europe, the need for functional food is expected to grow significantly over the next few years.
