Market Insights

Rising Consumer Awareness About Protein-Rich Food to Fuel Plant Protein Market Growth

Proteins play a key role in transporting molecules throughout the body by helping in cell repair and protecting the body from viruses and bacteria. It also promotes proper growth and development in children, teenagers, and pregnant women.

Various studies show that eating a protein-rich diet help gain muscle mass and strength and prevent muscle loss during weight management or weight loss program.

People consuming more protein tend to maintain bone mass better and have a much lower risk of osteoporosis and fractures. High protein intake has resulted in boosting metabolism that results in the burning of a high amount of calories. This further helps in proper weight management and weight loss. These benefits of protein are attracting consumers toward protein-rich food and beverages available in the market. This further creates a huge demand for plant proteins globally.

A protein-rich food is considered one of the strongest trends in the food and beverage industry. Following the protein trend in food, the food and beverage manufacturers are trying to make nutritional food products. Rising consumer awareness regarding effective ways to achieve weight loss, anti-aging, and other health-related issues through the consumption of protein-rich food is boosting the demand for plant proteins. Moreover, growing health and wellness trends has created a strong demand for functional and fortified food and beverages significantly over the past years. Thus, the rising consumer awareness about protein-rich food is expected to fuel plant protein market growth

Source-Based Insights

Based on source, the plant protein market is categorized into soy, wheat, pea, and others. The soy segment accounted for the largest market share in 2018; however, the pea segment is expected to register the highest CAGR in the market during the forecast period. Soy protein isolate is a highly refined form of soy protein, with a protein content of a minimum 90%. It is made from defatted soy flour from which most of the non-protein components, including fats and carbohydrates, are removed. Soy protein powder is made from defatted soybean flakes washed in either alcohol or water to remove the sugars and dietary fibers. They are then dehydrated and ground into powder. Soy protein powder is used to make infant soy formulae, as well as a variety of meat and dairy alternatives. Soy protein concentrates typically contain 70% soy protein and is basically defatted soy flour without the water-soluble carbohydrates. This form of protein is made by removing part of the carbohydrates from dehulled and defatted soybeans. Soy flour is made by grinding soybeans into a fine powder.

Type-Based Insights

Based on type, the plant protein market is segmented into isolates, concentrates, and protein flour. The concentrates segment accounted for the largest market share in 2018. Plant protein concentrates are produced by extracting protein from various sources such as soy, wheat, pea, quinoa, oats, beans, and nuts. These typically supply 60–80% protein, with the remaining 20–40% composed of fat and carbs. The concentrated plant protein is the least processed type of protein powder. Plant protein in the concentrated form helps the muscles recover quickly from heavy exercise as it is absorbed quickly by the body. Therefore, easy availability of plant protein concentrates coupled with lower prices compared to plant protein isolates are the key factors boosting the market. Plant protein concentrate tends to be the cheapest option, but they offer the least amount of protein compared to plant protein isolates because they contain more of other ingredients. These extra ingredients can include fat, cholesterol, lactose, and gluten. The consumers trying to limit the fat intake or have a sensitive digestive system should avoid plant protein concentrates.

Application-Based Insights

Based on type, the plant protein market is segmented into protein beverages, dairy alternatives, meat alternatives and meat extenders, protein bars, bakery and other applications. The meat alternatives and meat extenders segment accounted for the largest market share in 2018. Meat alternative products include tofu, tempeh, textured vegetable protein, seitan, and Quorn, among others. These products have taste, appearance, and texture similar to that of poultry, meat, and fish products. They are manufactured using grain- and plant-based ingredients to replace animal-based proteins and minerals (specifically calcium), which aid in reducing cholesterol levels, preventing menopausal difficulties, and other related ailments. Plant proteins are extensively used in the production of meat alternatives. Beans and legumes are affordable sources of plant protein that serve as a meat substitute. Soy is also among the major source for producing meat alternatives. Pea protein isolates are mainly used by meat-alternative manufacturers such as Daiya, Gardein, Ben & Jerry's, Beyond Meat, Just Mayo, and Ripple Foods, among others. Therefore, surge in demand and production for meat alternatives results in higher demand for plant proteins. The demand for meat alternatives is increasing due to growing health concerns among consumers and growing preference for vegan food. Further, rising obesity levels due to the consumption of meat and meat products have led to an increasing consumer preference for meat substitutes.

 

A few players operating in the plant protein market are Archer Daniels Midland Company; Axiom Foods, Inc.; Burcon NutraScience Corporation; Cargill, Incorporated; E. I. Du Pont De Nemours and Company; Glanbia plc; Ingredion Incorporated; Kerry Group; Koninklijke DSM N.V.; and Roquette Frères.
