The Europe mushroom market is projected to exhibit a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.50% during 2023-2028. The rising awareness of health and wellness in the European population, increasing product utilization in culinary applications, growing demand for plant-based protein sources, and rising interest in locally sourced and organically produced mushrooms represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Mushroom refers to a type of fungi that grows above ground or on food sources, offering a unique flavor and texture. It is known for its extensive nutrient profile, encompassing proteins, dietary fibers, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, potassium, copper, selenium, polysaccharides, beta-glucans, vitamins, and various antioxidants, such as ergothioneine and glutathione. The production process of edible mushrooms includes several stages, such as cultivation, spawning, casing, pinning, and harvesting. They find extensive applications in diverse areas, such as food and beverages (F&B), dietary supplements, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, bioremediation, waste management, textile dyeing, biotechnology, personal care products, pest control, animal feed, bioplastics, and the production of psychoactive compounds. Mushrooms assist in supporting immune function, boosting metabolism, aiding in weight management, enhancing brain function, and contributing to heart health. They also offer several advantages, such as suitability for vegetarian and vegan diets, ease of cultivation, year-round availability, versatility in cooking, and reducing environmental waste through composting.
