Rising ratio of working mothers is likely to boost the infant formula segment of the global protein hydrolysate ingredients market

Protein hydrolysate plays an important role in infant formula products due to its high nutritional quality that is vital for the infant's overall growth. Many infants cannot digest cow’s milk; however, infant formulas, which consist of whey protein not only help infants in digestion but also reduce the risk of allergies. This particular factor is creating a positive impact on the infant formula segment of the global protein hydrolysate ingredients market. On a cost-per-feeding basis, powdered infant formulas are less expensive than liquid formulas. Whey protein concentrate contains more than 76% protein and all the essential amino acids required by the growing infant. This is one of the important factors driving the growth of the global protein hydrolysate ingredients market. Rising ratio of working mothers is another key factor which is fuelling the demand for infant formula globally. Protein hydrolysate based infant formulas are easily available through e-Commerce markets and working mothers find it convenient to choose and purchase infant formulas online from a wide variety of nutrition products in a relatively short span of time as compared to visiting a brick-and-mortar store. Increasing population is creating robust development in the infant formula segment. In a country like China that has decided to end its decade-long one-child policy, the population is likely to increase and this is expected to boost the demand for infant formulas.
