$36.61 Billion Alternative Protein Market – Global Forecast to 2029: Environmental Sustainability of Alternative Protein Production and Consumption

Dublin, 16 May 2022–(Business Wire) – this “Alternative Protein Market by Type, Application – Global Forecast to 2029” report added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s supply.

The global alternative protein market is expected to reach USD 36.61 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 12.4% during the forecast period from 2022 to 2029.

The drivers of this market are the growing population and awareness of the benefits of alternative proteins, the increasing number of venture capital investments in alternative protein companies, the high nutritional value of edible insects, and the environmental sustainability benefits offered by alternative proteins.

Additionally, the growing shift towards vegan diets presents significant growth opportunities for alternative protein manufacturers. However, the high cost of alternative proteins and strong preference for animal-based products largely hinder the growth of this market.

On the basis of type, the alternative protein market is segmented into vegetable protein, insect protein, and microbial protein. It is estimated that the plant protein segment will account for the largest share of the alternative protein market by 2022. The majority of the share of this segment is mainly attributed to growing demand from food and beverage manufacturers, rising number of vegetarians, increasing number of plant-based product launches, and high presence of plant-based protein manufacturers.

However, the insect protein segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during 2022-2029. The high growth rate of this segment is driven by growing demand for environmentally friendly protein-rich foods and increasing investments in edible insect farming.

On the basis of application, the alternative protein market is segmented into plant protein-based applications, insect protein-based applications, and microbial protein-based applications. Plant-based protein applications are estimated to account for the largest share of the alternative protein market by 2022.

A large share of this segment is attributed to growing vegetarian and vegan populations, growing consumer demand for clean label products, and increasing number of investments and expansions by plant-based product manufacturers.

It is estimated that North America will hold the largest share of the alternative protein market by 2022. However, Asia Pacific is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The high growth of the Asia Pacific market is attributed to the rising awareness of the importance of protein-rich diets, increasing technological advancements in the food and beverage industry, rapid economic growth, and wide availability of raw materials.
