Micellar casein is a protein that consists of all important protein types including alpha casein, delta casein, gamma casein, beta casein, and kappa casein. It is also known as bedtime protein, and it delivers protein slowly over several hours. Micellar casein has an additional protein source that boosts muscle growth as it accounts for 80% of the protein found in milk. Micellar casein protein contains a high amount of amino acids that possesses various health benefits. Micellar casein is different from other caseins/caseinates, as it exists in the natural form and is easily digested by the body. Moreover, it promotes lean muscle growth and offers fast recovery in case of any injuries such as fractures.


Rising awareness about weight management programs due to the increasing number of health-conscious people around the globe is expected to fuel the market growth. Moreover, increasing cases of lifestyle chronic diseases is also expected to drive the demand for protein-rich food products. Furthermore, rising awareness about the benefits of micellar casein is projected to boost the global micellar casein market growth over the forecast period.

Market Opportunities

The growing use of casein micelles as a carrier for molecules in antiretroviral drugs for the HIV/AIDS drug delivery system is projected to offer lucrative growth opportunities in the near future. According to the Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, in 2014, researchers from Penn State’s College of Agricultural Sciences revealed that casein micelles could be used as carriers for molecules that have low molecular weight, little water solubility, and are hydrophobic in nature, the three traits characteristics of the major antiretroviral drug, Ritonavir.

Market Restraints

Western Europe and North America are the only regions where micellar casein is produced, making these regions heavily reliant on the import of this protein. The price of the goods is rising due to this trend. Thus, it is anticipated that over the course of the forecast period, the lack of robust domestic production in Europe and North America will restrain the growth of the global micellar casein market.
