Global $10.8 Billion Plant Based Protein Market Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecasts 2017-2022

Dublin, Feb 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) --

The "Plant Based Protein Market - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast (2017-2022)" report has been added to's offering.

Global plant based protein market is expected to reach USD 10,892.3 million by 2022 supported by a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2022.

The market is mainly driven by increasing awareness about the benefits of protein and growing demand for protein rich diet, growing health & wellness trend, increasing consumers' focus on meat alternatives, rising demand from food & beverage industry, and various advancements in ingredient technologies such as microencapsulation. However, significant preference to animal based protein and fluctuating raw material prices hampers the growth of this market to some extent.

The global plant based protein market is mainly segmented by type (soy protein, wheat protein, pea protein, canola protein, potato protein, rice protein, corn protein, and others), and by application (food and beverages, animal feed, nutrition and health supplements, pharmaceuticals, and others).

Geographically, the global plant based protein market is segmented into five major regions, namely North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. These regions are further analysed at a country level with the detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis. North America accounted for the major share in the global plant based protein market in 2016, followed by Europe, and Asia-Pacific.

The major share of the North American region is mainly attributed to the well established food and beverage industry, rising concerns over animal products and protein, increasing vegan population, growing preference for meat alternatives, increasing demand for healthy & nutritional products, and health & wellness trend. However, Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow at a rapid pace mainly due to the increasing protein rich diet awareness, increasing health consciousness, booming food & beverages industry, growing economy, rapid urbanization, and large base of vegan population.
