 Global Protein Analyzers Market Definition

Proteins are polypeptides made of amino acids and are complex molecules that are very crucial for bodybuilding. There are 20 different types of amino acids that come together to form protein molecules. Determining the protein content of food is done based on standard analytical methods. The amount and type of protein consumed from a food product are important to maintaining health. Protein food provides strength to the body and is prevent nutrient deficiency. It helps to avoid many diseases by improving muscle strength and bone mass.

A protein analyzer is an instrument used to analyze the protein quantity in a food sample that needs to be tested. The protein detection in these instruments can be done through several methods, which include Lowry, DUMAS, neural infrared spectrometers, the Kjeldahl method, and chromatography. The protein content of the food helps to determine the economic value of the product. Each method of protein analysis has its own advantages and disadvantages in determining protein content. The protein analyzer is an important tool to analyze protein quality and quantity in the field of bioinformatics.

The testing laboratory uses different types of protein analyzers. These are available in semi-automatic and automatic types based on the need. Additionally, automatic analyzers reduce human contact and are not only used for food despite, they are also used for the detection of protein in fertilizers, beverages, meat, dairy products such as milk, and milk products.

Protein analyzer, an efficient laboratory tool figuring out how much protein is in a sample is a protein analyzer. Protein analyzers are the most frequently used tools in laboratories of food and beverages, to determine the nutritional value of various food items such as meats, dairy products, and other food items. The growing food and beverage industries and rising demand for protein supplements increase the need for protein analyzers. When compared to the same period in FY2021-2022, India’s exports of processed food and agricultural products increased by 14% to USD 5987 million in the first 3 months of the fiscal year 2022-2023. The protein in the food products is evaluated to match the labels on the packaging. The rising preference for protein food is growing among people, as they become more health conscious. The increasing issues with obesity or overweight, and other disease conditions demand to take more protein food than fatty or carbohydrate foods to reduce complications.

Global Protein Analyzers Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Production of Animal Feed with Increasing Livestock Population – There is an increase in animal feed consumption owing to population growth, changing lifestyles, and dietary habits. This leads to an increased demand for animal feed, and it is anticipated to boost the growth of the global protein analyzers market. More than 1 billion tons of compound feed are produced worldwide each year. More than USD 400 million in revenue is reportedly generated annually by the production of commercial feeds worldwide.

  • Increasing Rate of Fertilizer Production Owing to Rising Agricultural Land – The global production of Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potash fertilizers was 318,700 thousand tons in 2022, which was up from 313,500 thousand tons in 2020.

  • Increasing Production of Beer with Rising Beverage Industries – Global beer production rose from 1.78 billion hectoliters in 2020 to approximately 1.87 billion hectolitres in 2021.

  • Expanding Worldwide Population Increases the Demand for More Food – The worldwide population rose to around 7,983,241,075 as of October 2022


  • Does not Give True Protein Measure – as the nitrogen in all foods is not in the protein form. Also, various amino acids require different corrections as they are made from different sequences of amino acids. Furthermore, it is difficult to extract protein quantitatively from processed food items as the proteins are covalently bound together. This inaccuracy in measurement is estimated to hinder market growth in the coming years.
  • Strict Guidelines for Biologics Production
  • Prolonged Licensing Process

Market Segmentation

The global protein analyzers market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by product into protein analysis, services, kits, reagents, and others. Out of these, the protein analysis segment is anticipated to hold the largest market size over the forecast period. The growth of the protein analysis segment is being driven by an increase in demand for grains that are high in protein, an increase in consumption of foods that are high in protein, a rise in R &D spending by market participants, and in-depth knowledge of how grain protein analyzers are used in other applications. For instance, the worldwide supply of soy is 2,000,000 metric tons and dairy supply is 895,000 metric tons and 141,000 metric tons of peas in 2022. The rising spending capacity of people with increasing disposable income among the middle-class population rises the purchases of protein food. Furthermore, protein-rich foods are costly compared to starchy or fatty foods, and treated as a healthy option, as they reduce the risk of heart disease, high cholesterol, and diabetes.

The global protein analyzers market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by technique into DUMAS, neural infrared spectrometers, Kjeldahl method, chromatography, and others. Amongst these segments, the DUMAS segment is expected to garner a significant share. The DUMAS method is the fastest and easiest method among all the protein analysis methods, as it is automated. The analysis only takes a few minutes to measure for one test. This is also referred to as the combustion method, as it ensures safety in determining components such as nitrogen. Moreover, the DUMAS method is applied in all types of laboratories, as it is fully automatic and uses the principle of DUMATEHRM as the basic method to analyze the protein content in solids or liquids. Nitrogen gas is used to estimate the hydrogen content and the nitrogen content in the samples. The accuracy is also very good for the DUMAS method compared to the Kjeldhal method. As per the analysis in 2022, the accuracy of the DUMAS method ranges within 1.8-3.8% intervals.
