In 2019, North America accounted for the largest share of the global plant protein market. The US and Canada are the major economies in the region, and they, together, capture a major share of the market in this region. The sales for these proteins in North America are driven by a growing demand for alternative protein types that are sustainable and clean, creating less environmental impact during production. The use of plant proteins as dietary supplements and food ingredients is growing rapidly. This is mainly attributed to the fact that they have high nutritional value, and low cholesterol and saturated fat content, which appeals to health-conscious consumers in developed countries. Moreover, rising awareness about vegan proteins, especially among adults, in the US, Canada, in Mexico is bolstering the market growth in North America. Food and beverage manufacturers in the region are experimenting to use healthy ingredients in bakery products, meat alternatives, dairy alternatives, processed foodstuffs, confectioneries, drinks, juices, etc., to enhance their taste, flavor, appearance, and nutritional value.

A vegan diet includes consumption of only plant-based food such as grains, nuts, vegetables, and fruits. As a result, vegan populations do not consume dairy products, meat, and eggs, among others. These vegan population in the developed countries is constantly increasing since the past few years. According to a study conducted by VeganBits, only 0.5% of the US population was vegan in 2016; however, the percentage reached 6% in 2019. Vegan diets follow healthy eating guidelines and contain all the nutrients that the human body needs. The British Dietetic Association and the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics stated that this diet is suitable for people of any age. According to some research studies, vegan diets help in lowering the heart disease rates, and blood pressure level and cholesterol levels; further, they also help prevent the development of Type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer. These benefits are attracting people to follow a vegan diet in developed and developing countries. Vegan consumers are looking for alternative proteins that can meet the daily requirement of protein intake. Plant-based protein is the most effective alternative for animal-based protein. The increase in flexitarians willing to reduce, but not eliminate, their overall meat intake is also adding to the demand for plant proteins. Moreover, due to increasing incidences of allergies to animal proteins, most of the meat consumers are inclined toward meat substitutes made of vegan protein.

Plant Protein Market: Segmental Overview
Based on the type, the plant protein market is segmented into isolates, concentrates, and protein flour. In 2019, the concentrate segment held the largest share of the market. Plant protein concentrates are produced by extracting protein from whole food using heat treatment and acid or enzymatic extraction processes. They typically supply 60–80% protein, with the remaining 20–40% composed of fat and carbs. The lower prices of concentrated plant proteins than plant protein isolates boost the demand for plant protein concentrates.

The plant protein market, based on source, has been segmented into soy, wheat, pea, and other sources. In 2019, the soy source segment accounted for the largest share in the plant protein market. Soy proteins help reduce the levels of cholesterol, bring improvements in metabolism and bone mineral density, and decrease the risk of cancer. Moreover, they provide essential amino acids for human nutrition. Soy proteins are used in various food products such as meat analogs, frozen desserts, soups, salads, non-dairy creamers, breakfast cereals, infant formula, cheese, whipped cream, pasta, bread, and pet foods. Therefore, health benefits and wide-range application of soy proteins boost the demand for the same.

By application, the global plant protein market is bifurcated into protein beverages, dairy alternatives, meat alternatives and meat extenders, protein bars, bakery, and others. The meat alternatives and meat extenders segment held the largest share in the market in 2019; the market growth of the segment is credited to growing health concerns among consumers and growing preference for vegan food.
