The global protein bar market has been growing rapidly on account of several factors in its favor – primarily the increased preference among consumers for portable convenience foods. It is not just sportspersons but also individuals who either cannot or do not have the time to cook their own food demanding protein bars. They have the added advantage of being nutritious and wholesome and they increase energy levels and boost muscle mass.
There seems to be a high demand for taste innovations in the protein bar market as the consumer base has diversified immensely. This has spurred new players to enter the protein bar market with all guns blazing. The protein bar market is expected to record a robust CAGR of 7.8% for the period from 2017-2022.

Focus on Specialty Stores and Modern Trade in the Protein Bar Market
The specialty stores and modern trade segment have a revenue share exceeding half the protein bar market between them and protein bar companies are recommended to take this into account while devising their distribution strategies. The modern trade segment is anticipated to record a robust CAGR of more than 7.5% for the study period.
The modern trade segment is particularly well-developed in North America and Europe and these regions are unlikely to cede their commanding positions to APEJ anytime soon. Specialty stores have the highest potential in the APEJ region as the CAGR is projected to be the most in this populous continent.
