Meat Substitutes Market

Higher demand for plant-based meat products contributes to the growth of the meat substitutes market, by source

Plant-based protein ingredients have proved to be a better substitute for meat products. This is due to their high protein value, along with their texture, which enhances the taste of the final products. The market for soy protein accounted for the maximum market share in the market due to the high demand for soy-based meat alternative products, such as pork, beef, and chicken, owing to their high protein content. The other reason can be the increase in the adoption of healthy and vegetarian diets. Soy-based foods are cholesterol-free, unlike animal protein foods, and serve as a good source of fibers. These factors have proved positive for the soy protein segment in the forecast period.

Based on type, the concentrates segment is projected to witness the highest growth in the 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.

With the increasing demand for plant-based meat, North America is estimated to dominate the meat substitutes market in 2019

The changing lifestyle and increasing buying power of consumers have increased the demand for meat substitutes. The growth of the region is owing to the increasing sale of plant-based meat products in North America and the rising acceptance of convenience foods among consumers due to their hectic lifestyles. Also, the inclination of the millennial population toward ready-to-eat foods drives the North American processed food market, which, in turn, is driving the demand for global meat substitutes.

In recent years, the rise in innovation in plant-based meat products has also been seen in the US. This factor is also expected to propel the market growth. Major companies of this region, such as Cargill (US) and ADM (US), are highly focusing on innovations to provide better products to their customers.
