Plant-Based Protein Market To Be $26,721.3 Million by 2030, says P&S Intelligence


From $11,104.3 million in 2020, the global plant-based protein market value is predicted to rise to $26,721.3 million by 2030, at a 9.2% CAGR between 2020 and 2030. The key factor behind the rising demand for such products is the increasing shift away from animal proteins, both on ethical and biological grounds. For instance, lactose intolerance is a common health issue affecting millions of people around the world, which is why they do not consume milk or anything made from it. Then, there is the question of ‘animal rights’, which has made many people shun meat and go for plant-based alternatives.

Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has only accelerated this shift, as people are now more concerned for their health. For instance, the Plant-Based Foods Association (PBFA) and the Good Food Institute (GFI) recorded a 27% increase in the retail sales of plant-based food products in the U.S. in 2020. This has been aided by the increasing production of such goods by established food and beverage companies, as well as startups, backed by significant investments.
