Rising prices of eggs and increasing consumer awareness towards preventative healthcare is expected to boost market growth

Egg shortage crisis due to avian influenza, increasing demand for plant based ingredients and increased cost of eggs are factors expected to support the growth of the global egg replacement ingredient market over the forecast period. Rising consumer awareness towards preventative healthcare and an inclination towards products with low cholesterol levels is further likely to fuel the growth of the global egg replacement ingredient market during the forecast period. Manufacturers are focussing on production catering to rising consumer demands for vegan or vegetarian edible products and allergen-free products.

However, increased cost of the final product and the fact that egg replacement ingredients do not offer the same taste effect as eggs is likely to restrict the growth of the global egg replacement ingredient market over the forecast period.
