Key Market Trends

Largest Segment By End User : Food and Beverages

By end-user, the F&B industry is the leading application sector for protein in the region, accounting for a major value share of 78.78% in 2020. The key sub-segments of the F&B segment are bakery and dairy/dairy alternatives. Gelatin remained the most used protein in the bakery sector as it adds protein and acts as a transparent gelling and thickening agent in baked goods.
In addition to the F&B segment, the supplements segment has the highest application share, with 91% of the application dominated by the sports nutrition sub-segment, primarily due to rising obesity across the region. Around 57% of the region’s adult population (54% men and 70% women) are overweight, and 19% (100.8 million) are obese (14.6% men and 24% women). However, the whey protein-enriched personal care sector is projected to witness the highest CAGR value of 4.34% in (2021 - 2026), owing to its increased functionalities as a skin smoothening and hair conditioning agent.

Largest Country : Brazil

By country, Brazil claimed the largest share in 2020, with the animal protein demand from the F&B and supplements sectors dominating the sales. This high demand can be attributed to the country’s aging population, which is estimated to be tripled by 2050, covering around 66 million Brazilians. In line with growing concerns, consumers are increasingly getting involved in fitness and sports activities, which is increasing the proportion of the non-athletic population among supplement consumers. As a result, Brazil is expected to record the fastest growth potential among all South American countries, with a CAGR of 6.65% during the forecast period.
The growing government support has helped propel market sales within the country, such as the introduction of new regulations by the National Sanitary Surveillance Agency (ANIVSA) for dietary supplements in 2018 in Brazil, which made it a lot easier for brands to enter the country and for existing brands to flourish and innovate.

Competitive Landscape

The South America Animal Protein Market is fragmented, with the top five companies occupying 10.34%. The major players in this market are Arla Foods amba, Darling Ingredients Inc., Gelnex, Kerry Group plc and Royal FrieslandCampina N.V (sorted alphabetically).
