Based on type, the concentrates segment is projected to witness the highest growth in the meat substitutes market during the forecast period
Concentrates, if added to a product, offer a high protein content and very low levels of calories. These concentrates are used as ingredients to enhance the volume and texture of different products. Concentrates are more refined than textured whereas less refined than isolates.
North America is projected to account for the largest share in the meat substitutes market for the concentrates segment during the forecast period. This is due to the low prices of concentrates compared to isolates. Another significant factor could be that soy protein concentrates (SPC) are easily digested by humans and contain the same amount of protein as found in milk, meat, and eggs.
Based on form, the solid segment is projected to witness the highest growth in the meat substitutes market
The solid form of proteins in food products is more extensively preferred by food manufacturers because of their ease of usage and their ability to preserve flavor and color of food products. The market for solid ingredients accounted for the largest market share due to the high usage of powder and chunks to make patties, sausages, and nuggets. These benefits are not offered by the liquid form. Moreover, the solid form of proteins has a high shelf life, which makes them more profitable for plant-based meat manufacturers. As a result, the solid segment is projected to account for the largest market share and achieve the highest growth rate during the forecast period.
With the increasing demand for plant-based meat, North America is estimated to dominate the meat substitutes market in 2019
