Alternative Protein Market is Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 9.5% to Reach $17.9 Billion by 2025- Meticulous Research®

London, Feb. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Globally, increasing demand for animal protein is driving the livestock production, which leads to key issues such as increased greenhouse gas emissions and increased pressure on land and water usage. This has opened a great opportunity for alternative proteins, such as plant-based protein, edible insects, cultured meats, algal protein, and microbial protein, which have the capability to satisfy food need with the high nutrition and environmental sustainability. Since 4-5 years, there has been a growing consumer and investor interest in the alternative protein, which have a great potential to play a vital role in reducing the impact on the current food and agriculture ecosystem.

According to a new market research report “Alternative Protein Market by Stage/Type (Insect, Algae, Duckweed, Lab Meat, Pea, Rice, Potato, Corn, Soy, Wheat, Corn, Mycoprotein, Mushrooms), Application, and Geography - Global Forecast to 2025, published by Meticulous Research®, the global alternative protein market, in terms of value, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.5% from 2019 to reach $17.9 billion by 2025; while in terms of volume, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2019 to reach 9,787.4 KMT by 2025. The high growth of the global alternative protein market is mainly attributed to growing urbanization with new consumer aspiration, rising venture investments in alternative protein companies, innovation in food technology, high nutritional value of edible insects, and environmental sustainability with production and consumption of alternative protein. Moreover, growing research & development and emerging economies provides significant growth opportunities for the various stakeholders in this market. However, high cost of alternative protein and significant preference for animal-based products are expected to hamper the growth of this market to some extent.

The factors such as desire for clean labels, ease of digestion, the need or desire to avoid allergens, compatibility with vegetarian and vegan lifestyles, and concerns about sustainability among the general population are putting the spotlight on plant proteins in alternative protein space. Based on type, soy protein segment commanded the largest share of the overall plant-based protein market in 2019. The large share of soy protein is mainly attributed to higher consumer acceptance level, presence of large number of manufacturers and their high scale of production, low cost than other types of plant proteins, increased demand for plant-based products, easy availability of raw materials, and large number of applications in various industries.

Based on application, plant-based protein products commanded the largest share of the overall alternative protein market in 2019. The large share of this segment is mainly attributed to the high consumer demand for sustainable products, growing knowledge about the health benefits of plant protein, increasing health concerns over animal products and ingredients, increasing vegan population, and rising meat prices and clean label trend. However, the edible insect-based products are expected to witness a significant growth, owing to high nutritional value of insects, increasing demand for novel food products, growing familiarity with insects-as-food, growing acceptance of insects and insect-based food among people, and environmental sustainability with production and consumption of edible insects.

Geographically, North America commanded the largest share of the overall alternative protein market in 2019, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. The large share of this region is mainly attributed to the well-established food and feed industry, rising concerns over animal products and protein, increasing vegan population, growing preference to meat alternatives, and technological advancement in food industry. However, Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period, mainly due to increasing protein rich diet awareness, increasing health consciousness, growing technological advancements in food & beverages industry, growing economy, and increasing raw material availability. Also, factors such as rising adoption of emerging technologies for product innovation, collaboration between international and domestic food companies, and presence of large number of players supports the growth of Asia Pacific market.
