The plant protein market is anticipated to increase its market value from US$10.126 billion in 2020 to US$17.414 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 8.05%.

The word protein is derived from the Greek adjective of paramount importance, proteins. It is the primary component of our body and is utilised to create things like muscles, tendons, organs, and skin in addition to microscopic molecules like neurotransmitters, enzymes, and hormones. Plants are superior protein sources since they frequently have fewer calories and negative impacts than animal products. Plants rich in protein include lentils, broccoli, spinach, quinoa, green peas, chickpeas, hemp seeds, etc.

Expanding population is boosting the growth of the plant protein market

The demand for proteins is rising in response to the expanding population, and traditional animal sources are now unable to meet this demand. As a result of the limited availability of animal sources of protein due to the growing population, the market for plant proteins will expand. Along with the rising prevalence of sensitivities to animal proteins, the market will rise as more customers choose vegan and plant-based diets. Additionally, the market demand will be fueled by changing lifestyles and an unbalanced diet. As a result, research and development are being done on substitute protein sources, such as plant proteins.

By Source

By source, the plant protein market is segmented as pea, rapeseed, soy, hempseed, and other sources. High-quality pea protein is frequently used to boost the protein content of shakes and smoothies. Soy protein provides all essential amino acids that can help avoid diabetes, obesity, and cancer. Additionally beneficial during pregnancy, soya beans have a positive impact on postmenopausal women's bone and calcium balance.

By Form

By form, the plant protein market is segmented as protein concentrates, protein isolates, and protein hydrolysate. The least processed protein powder is protein concentration. Protein isolate is a form of protein that has undergone additional processing to remove fat, lactose, gluten, and other undesirable components, making it easily digested. The most processed form of protein is protein hydrolysate, which also absorbs more quickly for quick and efficient digestion.

By Application

The market is divided into categories based on application, including animal feeds, food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, and dietary supplements. Cakes, snack bars, and shakes are just a few foods and drinks that include protein. Due to protein's many advantages and the growing public interest in health and fitness, its use is expanding quickly.

By Distribution Channel

The plant protein market is divided into online and offline segments based on the distribution channel. With the development of technology and people's hectic schedules, internet distribution channels have made it easier for people to purchase goods when it is convenient for them. For those who like to purchase a thing only after careful examination and personal questioning, an offline store is an excellent option.

By Geography

Geographically, the plant protein market is segmented as North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific. Due to rising consumer awareness and more investment, North America is expected to rise dramatically. Similarly to this, the European plant protein market will be driven by the government's rising support for reducing meat consumption. A shift in eating habits and a high intake of diets high in protein are expected to cause a surge in demand in the Asia Pacific.

Key Developments:

  • April 2022: Cargill is increasing the availability of RadiPure® pea protein across the Middle East, Turkey, Africa (META), and India in an effort to support the growing trend of customers who want to include more plant-based meals in their diets. In terms of functionality, RadiPure® pea protein offers the solubility and flavour profile that clients require for the creation of food applications. Pea protein is a wise choice for a variety of applications, including dairy and dairy alternatives, snacks, bakery, plant-based meat replacements, and vegan, and vegetarian solutions because of these advantages as well as its emulsifying, viscosifying, and gelation qualities. Due to its great amino acid composition and good digestion, pea protein is well-regarded nutritionally. RadiPure® brand from Cargill has a minimum protein content of 80%. For a full protein profile, it can be coupled with other plant-based proteins.
  • March 2019: DuPont Nutrition & Health introduced an excellent option for producers of snacks, cereals, nutrition bars, toppings, and other food products in response to the three emerging trends in the food and beverage sector of plant-based diets, protein, and healthy snacking. From its SUPRO® and TRUPRO® product lines, six new plant protein nuggets provide options with more protein or less sodium than prior offerings, in a wider range of shapes and tKSIextures. Extruded plant protein nuggets or crisps are frequently used in cereals, snacks, and nutrition bars to boost protein content while providing a crispy, crunchy feel.
