According to a recent analysis by Reports and Data, the global Plant Protein Market size was USD 10.28 Billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 17.52 Billion in 2028, and register a revenue CAGR of 6.80% over the forecast period 2021-2028.

Increasing consumer focus on the source or origin of food and ingredients consumed and the tendency to avoid food products believed to be unnaturally grown or those containing ingredients that are unnatural or unhealthy is a key factor driving market revenue growth. Although meat has always been an ideal source of protein and fiber, a major shift towards more vegan-based diets and changing food preferences and reducing inclination toward meat and meat-based products and protein and ingredients has been more prominent among consumers in countries in Europe and North America. Demand for traditional plant protein has risen majorly once again in markets in both, developed and developing countries, after some period of time being dependent on protein from animals and other sources as a food ingredient.

Changing consumer behavior, consumption patterns, and preferences, as well as interest in alternative-protein sources, has been changing partially due to personal health and environmental concerns and animal welfare and related concerns. Cleaner-greener eating trends, driven primarily by millennials, are resulting in higher preference for foods that are organic and healthy, ethically and naturally sourced, and involve less processing between source and table. Demand for plant-based protein has been high and continues to increase, driven by the above-mentioned trends.

Major Companies in the Market:

* Glanbia Plc

Some major factors negatively impacting market growth include availability of non-plant protein sources, global climate change, unpredictable weather conditions, reducing arable land to cultivate crops, and rapidly increasing water scarcity. Whey protein is a very widely available and preferred protein type globally, and accounts for majority revenue share among the protein sources for the dietary supplements industry. Many protein producing companies are also exploring with consumer willingness to explore or experiment with newer food options and ingredients. Food companies are also leveraging opportunities and offering a variety of products and ingredients using different plant-based proteins (soy, pea), new animal sources (insects), and biotechnological innovations (cultured meat or fungal protein).

An increasing number of consumers globally have been opting to be flexitarians or vegan. This is a factor opening up lucrative opportunities for manufacturers to explore, innovate, and offer wider options in the plant protein segment. Increasing traction of new and more advanced agriculture techniques and methods such as hydroponics and vertical farming can aid in addressing issues related to judicial use of water and soil, and reduce 'food miles' associated with distribution, thereby reducing carbon footprint as well.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

* The virus outbreak and social distancing norms and restrictions severely disrupted the overall business landscape and operations worldwide.

* COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns have resulted in several countries shutting down airports, ports, and commercial and domestic transportation. This had impacted manufacturing activities and operations globally and took a toll on the economy of various countries.

* Sudden and drastic downturn in economic activity caused a slowdown in manufacturing, production, agriculture, fisheries, dairy, and other sectors and also resulted in employment loss to a major extent.

* Supply impacts were further compounded due to challenges on the demand-side owing to reduced disposable income, depleting savings, and increased concerns and uncertainties.

* Emergence of variants of the virus and rise in infection rates during the initial waves and subsequent lockdowns has severely impacted operations and disrupted supply chains.

Soy continued to remain the most widely used and preferred source of plant protein globally. Soy accounted for majority revenue share, with soy protein isolates and soy protein concentrates accounting for significantly larger share than other forms and sources.

Pea segment accounted for second-largest revenue share, and growth of this segment is impacted primarily due to low production and availability of peas for protein extraction and sales. Fresh peas are highly preferred and most stock is depleted/consumed fresh and the production volumes fail to match demand enough to be able to extract protein.
