Plant-based protein source in the protein ingredients market are projected to grow a significant CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period

The growth of the plant-based protein market is being attributed to the rise in demand for alternative protein sources worldwide. The rise is a result of growing vegan trends across the globe. Moreover, plant-based proteins are a cheaper source of protein with similar protein content and thus find high popularity in developing regions. Consumer interest in plant-based protein sources is also a result of their health concerns regarding the consumption of high-quality animal-based meat, which contributes to the ever-rising prevalence of chronic diseases. Many cosmetics brands manufacture animal-cruelty-free products these days, which are gaining huge popularity in the protein ingredient market. Their growing production is also contributing to the growth of plant-based proteins.

Dry segment by form is estimated to dominate over the forecasted period

The dry form of protein ingredients is largely preferred by manufacturers of food & beverage, feed, and pharmaceutical products for various reasons. In the protein ingredient industry, powdered or dry ingredients are excellent texture enhancers. Dry forms of animal and plant-based protein ingredients are widely used in multiple foods, feed pharma, and cosmetics applications. Moreover, with the rise in demand for meat alternatives and growing trends for plant-based foods, industries are focused on maintaining the texture of plant-based food. They are trying to make it as close as possible to the texture of meat. These textured proteins are mostly in dry form; thus, the rise in demand for texturized protein ingredients is driving the demand for dry-form protein ingredients. The demand for dry form is also being driven by the rise in demand for feed, owing to its high fiber content.
