The demand for bioactive compounds in various industries is driving significant growth in the functional protein market.

Also, the rising prevalence of lifestyle-related diseases and an aging population have increased the emphasis on preventive rather than curative healthcare, which is driving the market for functional proteins.

On the other hand, several factors, such as regulatory hurdles and the need for strict quality standards, pose threats and act as market restraints. There is a need for ongoing research and development to identify new sources of functional proteins and improve their efficacy, which necessitates large investments. Despite growing awareness and emphasis on health and wellness, a large percentage of consumers are unaware of the benefits associated with functional protein, which is limiting market growth.
