Food and Beverage Plant-based Protein Market

The plant-based protein market is projected to grow at rapid speed Plant-based protein products are derived from plant sources such as soy, wheat, and pea. Plant-based proteins are used in protein beverages, dairy alternatives, meat alternatives, proteins bars, nutrition supplements, processed meat, poultry & seafood, bakery, food, and sports nutrition products to enhance their nutritional and functional properties, such as texturing, emulsifying, solubility, stabilizing, and binding.

The soy segment is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period. This segment is driven by the increasing popularity and rising demand for a high-protein diet among individuals. Soy protein helps to reduce the cholesterol level, improve metabolism, bone mineral density, and also decrease the risk of cancer. Soy protein isolates are used in applications such as nutritional bars, meat alternatives, bakery products, sports nutrition products, and beverages.

The isolates segment is projected to dominate the plant-based protein market during the forecast period. Protein isolates contain a higher amount of protein along with greater digestibility. Isolates are demanded widely in protein and nutrition-oriented applications such as sports nutrition, protein beverages, and nutrition supplements. In recent years, they have been required more from athletes, bodybuilders, vegetarians, and have gained an extensive application in various beverages and dairy products, due to their different functional properties.

Owing to the increasing awareness for healthy food ingredients and the trend of weight management among consumers is projected to drive the plant-based meat market in North America Plant-based proteins are highly versatile and can be used in applications such as meat analogs and meat extenders. According to research conducted by key players in the market and government surveys, it has been recorded that consumers are demanding meat alternatives to reduce their meat consumption. This has resulted in a decrease in the demand for meat.

The key players in this market include Cargill (US), Archer Daniels Midland Company (US), DowDuPont (US), Glanbia Plc (Ireland), Kerry Group (Ireland), Tate & Lyle PLC (UK), Ingredion Incorporated (US), Burcon NutraScience Corporation (Canada), Royal DSM N.V, (Netherlands), Sotexpro S.A. (France), Axiom Foods (US), and The Scoular Company (US).
