Plasma powder is a highly palatable protein concentrate designed to add value to pet food formations. It is a high-quality protein-based binder that supports healthy nutrition and improves palatability. This is an excellent source of essential amino acids and has been found to be superior to other protein sources. Plasma powder is suitable for all kinds of pet food formulas and treats. It helps to increase the quality of each formula by ensuring a uniform desired texture, and increasing the protein content and palatability of chunks and pate. Additionally, plasma powder is utilized in the food sector as binders in bakeries, fat substitutes, meat and protein-enriched pasta. Also, it serves as a fat and protein replacement in meat products like sausages as well as an emulsifier in emulsified meat systems.


The rise in demand for innovative ingredients from pet manufacturers and increasing adoption of pets, are concerned about pet health. Additionally, in food achieving the correct texture, ingredient factors are the major concern in increasing pet food palatability, especially for cats. Furthermore, according to the Association of American Feed Control Officials, plasma is the portion of blood which has been separated away from the cellular matter. The protein portion of this plasma powder product is primarily albumin, globulin, and fibrinogen type protein. Also, increasing demand for high quality and protein feeds is fuelling the market demand. Moreover, a growing pharmaceutical industry along with increasing drug demand is expected to fuel the global plasma powder market.


The rising trends for pet adoption and increasing demand for high protein pet products, an increasing number of pet food manufacturers have explored the utilization of protein in addition to traditional animal protein to boost animal health. The plasma protein in pet food formulation specifically helps the formulation to increase the food palatability in a product. These are major factors expected to create ample opportunity for the plasma powder market. 


Uncertainly, the acceptance of blood-based products for livestock feed due to lack of awareness among consumers, also high investment in refining technology at a commercial level will hamper the plasma powder market growth. Increased cost of raw material required for the final product is another factor hindering the growth of the market.
