The report analyzes the pea protein market’s drivers, restraints/challenges, and the effect they have on the demands during the projection period. In addition, the report explores emerging opportunities in the pea protein market.

Pea protein is considered a complete protein because it includes all nine necessary amino acids. These amino acids are found naturally in protein, which aids in the development and repair of new muscles. Pea proteins are also available in a range of products in different forms that make them easily available for consumption.

The global pea protein market is growing at a speedy rate. The rise in inclination towards plant-based products and the increasing trend of veganism are the major factors that are fostering the market's growth. Additionally, pea protein is commonly used to improve the nutritional profile since it contains a variety of amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. Also, foods with a clean label are becoming increasingly popular on the market. Pea protein is normally gluten-free and non-GMO. As a result, it belongs in the clean-label food category. In the food business, rising demand for organic, gluten-free, and non-GMO goods is boosting demand for pea protein. All such factors contribute equally to the growth of the market. Moreover, an increase in demand for ready-to-drink nutritious products, especially in the sports sector, is further adding up to the growth of the market. Furthermore, expanding applications and development of pea protein as a meat replacement are likely to boost the growth of the market during the forecast period. However, the extraction and production of pea protein come at a high cost, which in turn may limit the growth of the market.
