Published on Mar 09, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Mushroom Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026,” the global mushroom market size reached US$ 54.58 Billion in 2020. Mushrooms are a type of nutritious fungi used in various cuisines around the world. Edible mushrooms are typically grown in a regulated environment with the right amount of light, ventilation, humidity, nutrients, soil pH, and air pressure. They are a rich source of potassium, riboflavin, selenium, and vitamin D. Mushrooms help in building immunity, managing weight and minimizing the risks of various chronic diseases. These are directly consumed in households, as well as extensively utilized across the food processing industry. Apart from this, various non-edible mushroom varieties are employed in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Mushroom Market Trends:

One of the major factors driving the global mushroom market is the growing food and beverage industry and the increase in health consciousness among consumers. Besides this, the rising adoption of vegan dietary patterns is influencing the popularity of edible mushrooms as a meat substitute across the globe. Furthermore, the demand from the pharmaceutical industry is supporting the market growth on account of the anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antitumor properties of mushrooms. Apart from this, market players have been improving mushroom packaging methods by developing humidity-controlled materials to prevent water from condensing on mushrooms and thereby extend their shelf life. Other factors, including rapid urbanization, increased consumption of organic food products, and the rising consumer expenditure capacities, are further propelling the market growth.
