Global Plant-Based Meat Market to Reach US$ 87.9 Billion by 2032, Propelled by Emerging Trend of Veganism

March 09, 2023 | Food & Beverages

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Plant-Based Meat Market Report by Product Type (Burger Patties, Sausages, Nuggets and Strips, Ground Meat, Meatballs, and Others), Source (Soy, Wheat, Peas, and Others), Meat Type (Chicken, Beef, Pork, and Others), Distribution Channel (Restaurants and Catering Industry, Supermarkets and Hypermarkets, Convenience and Specialty Stores, Online Retail), and Region 2024-2032," finds that the global plant-based meat market size reached US$ 13.6 Billion in 2023. Plant-based meat is a meat-like, vegan alternative that resembles meat products in texture, color, appearance, and flavor. It is produced by mixing plant protein isolates, vegetable extracts, starch, oils, and seasonings and processing with additives to attain animal meat flavor. These products help minimize the risks of cardiovascular diseases, maintain calories, and increase protein consumption. Owing to this, plant-based meat products are widely adopted in cafes, fast food joints, restaurants, and other catering platforms and are consumed by individuals across the globe.

Global Plant-Based Meat Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the emerging trend of veganism across the globe. In addition, the growing prevalence of chronic diseases such as obesity and diabetes among individuals represents another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, various animal welfare organizations, such as PETA, are introducing several awareness campaigns to reduce excessive animal killing for meat consumption. This, coupled with the elevating consumer living standards and the changing consumer inclination from a non-vegetarian diet toward plant-sourced foods, is positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, prominent food companies are entering into strategic partnerships and collaborations with vegan meat-producing start-ups to expand their product portfolios, thus creating a positive market outlook across the globe. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 87.9 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 22.4% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
