On the basis of stage, matured alternative protein segment (soy protein, wheat protein, canola protein, mushroom protein, mycoprotein) dominated the global alternative protein market in 2018, owing to higher consumer acceptance level, presence of large number of manufacturers and their high scale of production, low cost than other types of alternative protein, increased demand for plant-based products, easy availability of raw materials, and large number of applications in various industries. However, since last few years, there has been growing consumer and investor interest in emerging alternative protein space (insect protein, algae protein, duckweed, lab meat). As the market is at a nascent stage at this point of time and many companies are start-up actively seeking funding considering the huge potential, the dynamics of this industry are going to change in the next few years.

Based on application, plant-based protein products commanded the largest share of the global market in 2018. The large share of this market is mainly attributed to growing vegetarian and vegan population, consumers’ desire for clean label products, and increasing investment and expansion plans implemented by plant-based product manufacturers. However, the edible insect-based products are expected to witness a significant growth, because of high nutritional value of insects, increasing demand for novel food products, and environmental sustainability with production and consumption of insects.
