The Middle East Animal Protein Market stood at 521.49 million usd in 2021 and is projected to register a CAGR of 4.32% to reach 644.25 million usd in 2026.

Key Highlights
Largest Segment by Product Type - Milk Protein : In the Middle East, the supplements industry is the largest contributor to the growth of milk protein as it is considered optimal for pre-workout routines and muscle recovery.
Largest Segment by End User - Food and Beverages : Casein and caseinates, gelatin, and collagen are the key animal protein used in the F&B industry due to consumer inclination toward healthy protein-based food and drinks.
Fastest Growing Segment by Product Type - Collagen : Collagen is anticipated to grow the fastest as more people become aware of its ability to improve digestion, build lean muscle mass, boost immunity, and treat joint pain.
Fastest Growing Segment by End User - Personal Care and Cosmetics : Growing demand for natural ingredients and protein-enriched skin, body, and hair care products are driving the segment. Thus, the segment is projected with the fastest growth.

Key Market Trends

Largest Segment By End User : Food and Beverages

The F&B segment’s consumption of animal protein remains the highest. Its value share in 2020 had increased to 74% from 71% in 2019. This was mostly due to an increase in hoarding and panic buying during the pandemic’s unpredictable lockdown scenarios. Bakery, one of the primary F&B categories, was even documented with a Y-o-Y growth rate of 15.85% in 2020.
In addition to the food and beverages segment, the supplements segment has the highest application share, whose 70% of the application is dominated by the sports nutrition sub-segment, primarily due to the rise in obesity across the region. For instance, around 70% of males over the age of 15 in the UAE and 67% of females are obese. However, the whey protein-enriched personal care and cosmetics segment is projected to witness the highest CAGR value of 4.56% by (2021 - 2026), owing to whey protein’s increased functionalities as a skin smoothening and hair conditioning agent.

Largest Country : Saudi Arabia

The market was primarily led by Saudi Arabia in 2020. In the Saudi Arabian market, by protein type, the country is expected to record the highest market demand for milk protein-based functional foods and beverages. This is primarily because prices of dairy products (which include dairy ingredients like dairy proteins) in Saudi Arabia are set to rise by 30-50%, following the Kingdom’s Cabinet decision to remove subsidies on them. This leaves consumers in importing countries like Bahrain paying more for dairy products.
However, during the forecast period, Iran is projected to witness the highest growth potential for animal proteins, particularly gelatin and collagen, with a CAGR of 7.27%, owing to the rising demand for meat-based diet consumption among the country’s population. For instance, as surveyed by Iran’s Statistic Center, chicken consumption per capita had increased from 17.6 kilograms in 2011 to more than 21 kilograms in 2017.

Competitive Landscape

The Middle East Animal Protein Market is fragmented, with the top five companies occupying 24.58%. The major players in this market are Fonterra Co-operative Group Limited, Kerry Group plc, Lactoprot Deutschland GmbH, Ornua Co-operative Limited and Royal FrieslandCampina N.V (sorted alphabetically).
