Plant Based Food Market Overview
The key drivers impacting the plant-based food market is the growing awareness about vegan food options leads to the growing demand for plant-based food globally. For instance, according to the food revolution network in the U.S., there was a 600% increase in people identifying as vegans in the U.S in the last three years. Similarly, in the UK, people who identify as vegans have raised by 350%. In addition to this, with the growing incidence of obesity, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, people are particular about eating healthy. According to the health data organization, there are around 2.1 billion people (that is 30% of the world’s population) who were, are either overweight or obese globally in 2015. According to the International Diabetic Federation (IDF), there were approximately 463 million adults (20-79 years) who were living with diabetes in the year 2019 and are expected to reach 700 million by 2045.

The global plant-based food market size was valued at USD 16.9 billion in 2019 and is estimated to reach USD 34 billion by 2026 with a prominent CAGR of 10.5% during the forecast period of 2019-2026.

Moreover, the high prevalence of incidents caused by the intolerance for animal protein across the globe is anticipated to increase the plant-based food market demand under the forecast period. According to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, around 90% of these food allergies are caused by eggs, milk, fish, red meat, soy, and nuts. 

The high changing consumer perceptions towards vegetarian diets as well as its potential benefits in regulating cholesterol and insulin levels is a key determinant adding growth to the market. Also, the current trend of eating vegan pasta and vegan chocolates globally is considered as the key factor that is positively impacting the market. However, the high cost and fluctuating prices may hamper the global plant-based food industry in the long run. Also, the significant preference for animal-based products is likely to restrict the market growth. The current industry trends show the growing focus towards recycling and reuse of plant-based food and high prospects for electrification in transport in the coming decade are creating new market opportunities for the key players.

The plant-based food market is vast, with a large number of local and global players. The key leaders follow various strategies to improve their market position, such as mergers, acquisitions, expansions, and improved quality products at the best prices to enhance their market share across the world. For instance, In May 2020, JUST Inc, a company that implements progressive science and technology to develop more sustainable and healthier food products, combined with Michael Foods, a Post Holdings subsidiary and one of the chief processors of value-added eggs worldwide, in order to provide the top-selling, plant-based JUST Egg to millions of consumers in the U.S.
