The report forecasts the whey protein market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 5.48% over the period 2014-2019.

The number of cancer patients is expected to increase by 40% by 2020 due to the rising aging population. In future, taking preventive measures against cancer will become mandatory in order to maintain a healthy life. Whey proteins help in the prevention of cancer. Lactoferrin, a protein found in whey proteins, helps in binding iron, reducing the formation of free-radicals and thereby preventing cell damage and reducing the risk of cancer.

According to the report, rising demand for special benefits are the major driver of the use of whey protein in packaged foods. In order to increase the shelf life and enhance the nutritional content of food, various amino acids, proteins, and vitamins are added to the products.

Further, the report states that the major challenge faced by vendors in the whey protein market in the US is the highly fragmented nature of the market.
