High technological advancements and continuous research in the manufacturing sector has helped the country to develop state-of-the-art processing methods and techniques for the protein industry. The wheat protein market is among the fastest developing markets in the country. Presently, Japan represents around 18% of total wheat protein market in the Asia-Pacific region. The market revenue of wheat protein industry in the country is estimated to attain the value of $142.22 million by 2023, registering at a CAGR of 5.8% during 2018 to 2023.

Moreover, the demand for plant-based products in the country has increased rapidly in past few years due to rising trend of veganism and vegetarianism. This will provide the wheat protein manufacturers a huge opportunity to capitalize on increasing demand of vegetable protein by expanding their product portfolio. Major food and beverage producers in the country have already started adding wheat protein ingredients in order to vary the taste, nutritional quality and functional quality of the products.
