The Europe calcium caseinate market was valued at USD 415.5 million in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 568.7 million by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period. In terms of volume, the market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 3.9% during the forecast period. Casein is an optimal protein source for muscle growth and recovery, as it provides a stable discharge of amino acids. Calcium caseinate is a protein that is prepared from the casein in skimmed milk. Calcium caseinate contains high amounts of protein that are prepared by altering the milk’s pH to make it acidic or neutral. Casein is insoluble in water when it is in the acidic or neutral state. The casein is separated and integrated with calcium hydroxide in water. Furthermore, the protein is dried to produce calcium caseinate.
Rising inclination of young population towards bodybuilding and fitness is driving the market growth in Europe. Moreover, increasing demand of calcium caseinate as a food additive is contributing to the market growth.
Athletes, bodybuilders, and active sportsmen use calcium caseinate as a dietary supplement after workouts, with breakfast, or at night. Increasing caseinate production in Europe is driving the growth of calcium caseinate market in the region. For instance, DairyCo LLC annually produces 3,600 tons of caseinates and 5,000 tons of casein. Such high production of caseinate by the companies in Europe is expected to increase the consumption of calcium caseinate. Moreover, rising inclination of young population toward bodybuilding & fitness and expansion of the fitness industry in Germany and the UK are anticipated to surge the number of bodybuilders, thereby spurring the calcium caseinate market.
Physical fitness is a state of better strength and health achieved with the help of exercise and physical activity, which ultimately increases the muscular strength and muscular fitness. For instance, according to recent information from physical activity strategy for the WHO European Region 2016–2025, the WHO recommends that adults and older people should engage in a minimum of 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity weekly. Such strategies are expected to increase awareness regarding health and fitness, and thus the consumption of calcium caseinate, as a dietary supplement, is expected to increase in the coming years. Furthermore, bodybuilding championships in Europe are expected to boost the demand for protein enriched foods such as calcium caseinate. However, the increasing consumption of sodium caseinate over calcium caseinate is expected to impede the Europe calcium caseinate market growth during the forecast period.
The availability of various cheese varieties and rising consumption of cheese as a snack and in fast foods such as burgers, pasta, and pizza are expected to provide long-term opportunity in the cheese industry during the forecast period. High demand for cheese is expected to increase the production output of casein thereby, providing opportunities in the calcium caseinate market.
By type, the calcium caseinate market has been segmented into food grade and feed grade. The feed grade segment is expected to expand at a moderate CAGR during the forecast period. Increasing use of calcium caseinate for birds, fish, and animals is anticipated to boost the segment growth in the coming years. Calcium caseinate play a vital role in increasing resistance against various infections and virus attacks, and hence the adoption of feed grade is expected to increase during the forecast period.
By drying process, the Europe calcium caseinate market has been segmented into spray dried calcium caseinate, roller dried calcium caseinate and attrition dried calcium caseinate. The roller dried calcium caseinate segment held a considerable share of the market in 2019 and is expected to expand at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period. The share is attributed to factors such as affordability of this drying process over its alternatives and greater dispersibility of calcium caseinate in water. Moreover, its ability to produce more viscous solutions than the other drying propels the roller dried calcium caseinate segment.
Based on end use industry, the calcium caseinate market has been categorized into food & beverages, dietary supplement, personal care & cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. The dietary supplement segment held a substantial share of the market in 2019 owing to increasing consumption of calcium caseinate by athletes, bodybuilders, and sportsperson, as they require protein intake in their diet, and thus they prefer protein supplements that contain calcium caseinate.
Based on distribution channel, the Europe calcium caseinate market has been categorized into online channel and offline channel. The offline channel segment accounted for a considerable share of the market in 2019 and is expected to expand at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period. The share is attributed to the advantages of offline distribution channel such as tangible checking of calcium caseinate to identify quality and color.
In terms of countries and sub-region, the Europe calcium caseinate market is classified as the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the Rest of Europe. Germany accounts for a major share of the market, followed by the UK. The market in Germany is projected to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. The market growth in Germany is attributed to the increasing imports of green coffee beans and rising consumption of coffee creamers. As calcium caseinate is used in coffee creamers, its adoption is expected to increase in the near future.
