There is huge awareness about benefits derived due to the intake of alternative proteins among the population of countries possessing huge economic wealth. For the record, meat has been the key source of protein in developed countries for many years. However, rapidly altering consumer behavior and keen inclination toward alternative protein consumption due to health concerns & environmental issues has prompted huge demand for alternative proteins. Reportedly, sales of plant-based food – the highest source of alternative protein- rose to nearly 18% in 2018 and will continue to surge even in near future. Apparently, the escalating interest of consumers in non-meat protein-based food products and the rise in the use of alternative protein as an ingredient in the diet of consumers will drive alternative protein market growth.
Growing customer interest in good health and ethical considerations such as animal welfare has created a huge demand for alternative proteins, thereby driving market trends. Direct intake of vegetable proteins in the diet has been increasing in recent years due to diseases occurring in animals. Apart from this, the shortage of animal protein, fluctuations in the purchasing capacity of individuals, and ethical concerns have compelled consumers to opt for a plant-based diet. This has resulted into huge demand for alternative proteins. With the large-scale surge in legume consumption & intake of oilseed proteins in the routine diet of individuals owing to high-protein contents of the former, the market for alternative protein is anticipated to gain traction.
