Global Plant-based Protein Market foreseen to garner a CAGR above 7% by 2025

Market overview:

The global Plant-based Protein Market was worth USD 10.3 billion in 2019, and it is estimated that it will reach a valuation of USD 14.5 billion by 2025 at a CAGR of 7.1% during the outlook period.

Plant-based protein is made up of amino acids and is a basic nutrient needed by the human body. These proteins, obtained from plant foods like wheat and soybeans, are called plant proteins. Many plants provide large amounts of protein, such as lentils, tofu, peanuts, chickpeas, quinoa, spirulina, almonds, and chia seeds. Since plant protein is low in calories, it can be replaced with animal protein for weight loss. 

Recent developments:

  • In September 2019, ADM expanded the production capacity of the CLARISOY soy protein isolate product line to meet growing consumer demand for soy protein isolates.

Market Drivers and Restraints:

Changing consumer preferences have shown changes in consumers seeking to adapt to a more nutritious diet with a focus on a more sustainable lifestyle and less dependence on animal protein. Growth in the health and wellness sector is also driven by increased use of health and fitness clubs, diet plans containing plant protein, as well as increased education and awareness about obesity. Consumers are aware of these properties of plant proteins and are gaining interest and importance among consumers seeking products that are natural, environmentally friendly and allergen free. Compared to other sources of protein, plant protein stands out as being environmentally friendly. Growing concern for animal products and the environment has led an increasing proportion of consumers to implement a flexible diet that includes plant protein as a key nutrient. Plant foods and drinks have functional health benefits and are made up of essential minerals. However, in some cases, the consumption of selected sources such as soybeans and wheat are identified as an allergen, resulting in careful consumer acceptance. The other aspect is the allergy to gluten, common in wheat proteins with similar properties, which has affected the growth prospects of both protein sources. Producers are focusing their efforts on the production of non-GM soy, which often leads to higher production costs and lower sales margins.
