April 25, 2022

IMARC Group's latest report, titled “Vegan Food Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2023-2028,” finds that the global vegan food market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.7% during 2023-2028. Vegan food refers to various food products processed from plant-based sources, such as soy, oats, wheat, almonds, tofu, rice, and coconuts. It is free from animal-derived ingredients, including eggs, milk, gelatin and honey, and is widely consumed as an alternative to dairy, meat, and meat-based products. it is rich in iron, magnesium, folic acid, and vitamins B1, C, and E and contains low amounts of cholesterol and saturated fats Moreover, vegan food is rapidly gaining traction among health-conscious consumers as it has a similar taste, texture, and flavor and is much healthier than its traditional counterparts.

Global Vegan Food Market Trends:

The rising health consciousness among consumers and the shifting preferences toward plant-based diets represent the primary factors driving the market growth. This can be attributed to the increasing incidences of chronic and lifestyle diseases, such as cancer, obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disorders, that have encouraged individuals to opt for healthier substitutes. In addition, several non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are taking favorable initiatives to promote the uptake of vegan food products and prevent cruelty against animals. Apart from this, the growing awareness about animal health and welfare has augmented the product demand. Furthermore, the leading manufacturers are launching premium quality ready-to-eat (RTE) and packaged vegan products in exotic flavors, including vanilla, strawberry, and blueberry, to cater to the diversified tastes and nutritional requirements of vegan consumers. Besides this, the widespread adoption of innovative packaging solutions and aggressive promotional activities by key players, such as athlete and celebrity endorsements, is positively increasing product sales. Other factors, including the availability of vegan-friendly menus in restaurants and fast-food outlets, expanding lactose intolerant population, rapid urbanization, easy product availability through online and offline retail channels, and elevating income levels, are also providing a positive thrust to the market growth.
