Rice Protein Market Growth:

The latest trend of a healthy and balanced lifestyle is likely to act as a propellant for the rapid expansion of the global rice protein industry.


Verticals like pharmaceutical, sports nutrition and cosmetic industries are finding huge demand, which is likely to propel the global rice protein market in the coming years. In addition, as per capita income and consumer preferences for nutritional diets intensify, the overall demand for rice protein across the globe has strengthened. The vegan population has grown in recent years as the demand for organic rice protein increases on the verge of several medicinal benefits. As the world's vegan group expands, the number of consumers opting for healthy and clean food increments. This further promotes the growth of the global rice protein market. The need for organic cosmetic products that reduce the risk of side effects is assumed to result in a positive impact on the future growth of the global rice protein business. Rising demand in the nutrition, cosmetics and sports industries is presumed to lead the world market for rice proteins in the following years.

The rice protein industry serves as a platform for waste utilization. During the polishing process, rice bran gradually becomes the production of value-added products, and protein is one of them. Rice protein isolates and concentrates are increasingly produced from rice bran. Functional foods, especially dietary supplements, are emerging as one of the leading applications in the rice protein market, and manufacturers are taking a mixed approach for plant-based protein products. With increased diet and nutrition awareness and increased purchasing power, the demand for rice protein increases. Therefore, it is promoting a broad expansion of the rice protein market worldwide. The vegan population expects alternative sources of protein and increases the demand for rice protein, making rice protein worldwide grow substantially.

Expanding needs from the food and beverage industry is anticipated to spur the expansion of the global rice protein market in foreseen years. The ability to leave carbohydrates and intake of proteins makes them healthier. Therefore, the presence of high proteins expands the demand for these rice proteins. The advent of new players in the rice protein trade and the introduction of new products have been the supporting aspects of growth. This is expected to be further augmented with the non-soy protein enrichment solutions persevered by end-use industries. Rice protein producers are making efforts to launch distinct products, which are suspected of quickening market growth as demand surges. Rice protein is also rich in antioxidants and amino acids, making it a prominent factor in the boom of the global rice protein market.

Furthermore, the high protein content has increased the demand for organic rice protein, which has become a trend factor that plays a catalyst in the expansion of the fructose market worldwide. Natural rice protein can accommodate a population with lactose intolerance. Furthermore, gluten is not supposed to provide growth opportunities for the global rice protein market.


Low consumer awareness is expected to be a factor hindering the growth of the global rice protein market. Regardless of limitations, demand for clean, non-allergenic, gluten-free, and GMO-free alternatives is assumed to accelerate growth in the worldwide rice protein market.
