Key Factors Shaping the Egg White Powder Market

Growing Consumer Focus on Protein Consumption

Consumers are becoming fitness-conscious and giving more attention to their diets. They prefer gluten-free, sugar-free, and fat-free products because these help them manage their weight and ensure good health. Sufficient intake of protein is also important to maintain good health.

According to sports scientist Jim Stoppani, the digestion speed of proteins in egg white is moderate. Whey is a fast-digesting protein & casein is a slow-digesting protein. As egg white powder falls somewhere in the middle, it keeps muscle protein synthesis going on for longer. It is also an excellent source of protein for individuals who are lactose-intolerant.

Whey and Casein are both dairy-based and hence, not useful for individuals with dairy allergies. Egg white powder is lactose-free, making it a good alternative to dairy-based protein powders. Many individuals have dairy allergies and hence, the demand for egg white powder is increasing rapidly.

Usage in Shampoos, Conditioners, and Body Creams Propelling the Market Demand

Egg white protein powder nourishes hair and prevents damage and dryness. So, egg white protein powder can be used in the production of shampoos and conditioners. Egg white protein powder can be used in the production of sunscreen, moisturizers, face washes, etc., as well. The demand for egg white protein powder will increase rapidly in the near future as the manufacturers of cosmetics will use egg white protein powder as a primary ingredient to take maximum advantage of its benefits. The spending on cosmetic products is increasing rapidly due to the growing number of working women.

Online Retail Expected to Have the Fastest Growth

With strong growth of internet retailing, increasing number of manufacturers have launched stores on leading internet retailing websites. Although the share of the revenue from internet retailing is still low as compared to traditional retailing channels, the forecast period is expected to see rapid development of integrated internet retailing platforms and logistics, improvements in the online buying experience for consumers, and a wider range of online payment systems. Consequently, internet retailing is expected to be the fastest-growing sales channel for egg white powder during the forecast period.
