Key Growth Influencers - Meat Substitutes Market

  • Increasing Demand from Sports Nutrition Industry

    A vegan diet fits well into an athlete’s training plan as it tends to be higher in carbohydrates, which is essential for athletes. Vegan sources of protein include quinoa, peanut butter, protein-enriched pasta, brown rice, tofu, soymilk, nuts, tempeh, beans, and peas. Vegan food includes numerous health benefits such as rich in certain nutrients, helps in weight management, protect against certain cancer, lowers risk of heart diseases, reduce pain from arthritis, and many others. Owing to an increase in awareness about the health benefits associated with the consumption of meat substitutes, most athletes are now switching to vegan diets.

    • The Game Changers, a new pro-vegan documentary, dismisses myths on the necessity of meat consumption to ensure best athletic performance. This has led to many players and celebrities switching to vegan diets
  • Increasing Inclination Towards Healthier Meat Substitutes

    Rise in consumption of fast food has led to an alarming rate of obesity. Developed countries like the U.S., France, the U.K., and others are facing obesity as one of the chronic disorders affecting their population.

    • Google Trends show that a remarkable global rise in the interest in veganism has been witnessed from 2004 to 2018. Top regions include Australia, Israel, Austria, Canada, and New Zealand. Seven percent or about 3.5 million people now identify as vegan in Great Britain. Although the U.K. and the U.S. round out the top 3 vegan countries by %, the first spot is taken by India with veganism covering 27% of the population.

Regulatory bodies in these countries are taking measures to make improvements in the food industry, particularly regarding nutritional content in processed meat products. Meat substitutes are widely preferred over conventional meat options, as they increase protein content in food, without increasing cholesterol levels. Obesity is anticipated to become an epidemic and an enormous challenge to the public health sector, as it is witnessing a sharp increase and affecting most of the population from infants to adults.

  •  Ethical Consumerism Augmenting Uptake of Meat Substitutes

    Internet and smartphone proliferation has elevated consumer awareness regarding how their consumption patterns impact the environment.

    Other such consumer attitudes, such as protesting animal cruelty, reducing carbon emissions, and the conservation of water (a large quantity of water is utilized for meat production/processing), which will culminate in a high consumption of meat substitutes in the foreseeable. Besides, a spurt in population growth is also likely to create the need for substitute foods.

  • Reinforced Supply Chain in Developed Regions

    The trend for better substitutes for dairy and meat is currently gaining momentum in the Western and North American markets. Hence, a large number of meat substitutes are expected to be developed in this region over the forecast period.
