Industry Witnesses Rising Demand for Plant-Based Cheese Owing to the Surge in the Plant Protein Sourced Diet. Japan and Korea are anticipated to emerge as lucrative markets in the Asia Pacific region owing to increasing globalization, changing consumer preferences for different foods, and increasing availability of plant-based food products.

NEWARK, Del, Feb. 05, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The plant-based cheese market is predicted to be valued at US$ 3,068 million in 2024. The market for plant-based cheese is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.2% between 2024 and 2034 to reach a value of US$ 9,658 million. This expansion is due to consumers seeking cruelty-free, environmentally friendly, and sustainably produced substitutes for conventional dairy products. It also reflects a trend toward a plant-based diet, as seen by the various product offers, exquisite flavor, and health-conscious consumer base.

It is projected that shifting consumption habits, increased interest in plant-based dairy products, a surplus of capital, and expanding acceptance of Western lifestyles drive the plant-based cheese industry. The food service industry has also made a substantial contribution to the growth of the vegan cheese industry by labeling its goods with vegan cheese and serving vegan cheese-based appetizers. People who are allergic to dairy products or lactose intolerant are increasingly choosing plant-based cheese.

Concerns about animal welfare, the growth in vegans, and the adoption of plant-based goods by those who are allergic to dairy all contribute to the global trend of replacing dairy products with plant-based alternatives.

Vegan cheese has a lower fat content than dairy cheese but offers equivalent vitamins, proteins, and carbohydrates. Eating vegan cuisine has been shown to improve health. The millennial is creating creative ways to use artisanal vegan cheese, which is becoming increasingly common in fast food, hotels, cafés, and restaurants to serve a huge crowd.

The rise in popularity of plant-based diets and veganism is causing rapid changes in the food business. With the increasing availability of vegan cheese, ‘clean’ labeling is becoming increasingly popular. It comprises plant-based starch and oil (derived from nuts), cheese replacements, and fermented cheese. The global plant-based cheese market is expected to grow significantly due to consumers' increasing adoption of health-conscious dietary habits.

As people become more aware of the benefits of plant-based diets, there is a growing demand for cheese alternatives made from plant-based ingredients. This trend is likely to continue in the coming years, driven by factors such as rising awareness about the environmental impact of animal agriculture and concerns about animal welfare. As a result, the plant-based cheese market is poised for strong growth, offering new opportunities for manufacturers and suppliers in the food industry.

“Demand for plant-based cheese substitutes is rising due to growing benefits and awareness of plant-based diets. Concerns about animal welfare and the negative environmental effects of animal agriculture are fueling the trend of consuming vegan products. Consequently, the market for plant-based cheese is anticipated to rise rapidly, presenting novel prospects for food industry suppliers and manufacturers.” - Nandini Roy Choudhury, Client Partner at Future Market Insights
