The rise of veganism is expected to fuel the global textured pea protein market over the coming years. In fact, the market is seen growing at a CAGR of 7.6% through 2030 and reaching $800 million by the end of the forecast period, according to Transparency Market Research.
End use pea protein products are used in food processing, nutraceuticals, infant nutrition, personal care, animal feed, sports nutrition, and cosmetics.
Europe Leads in Market Share
In the coming years, Europe is expected to account for the largest market share, followed closely by North America. Key drivers for expansion include large-scale production and the low cost of raw materials. Furthermore, rising consumer demand for all natural and organic foods that align with healthier lifestyles and avoid chemical additives are seen bolstering demand. Improvements in texture are also expected to boost growth.
Concerns about red meat and the associated risk of cardiovascular disorders are also fueling the demand for vegan and organic products.
