The global plant-based food market grew at a CAGR of around 8% during 2014-2019. Plant-based food refers to various food products derived from natural plant-sourced ingredients. These products are usually manufactured using fruits, vegetables, nuts, oils, whole grains and legumes and do not contain any animal-sourced ingredients, such as meat, milk or eggs. Some of the commonly used plant-based food products include tofu, coconut and almond milk, tempeh and seitan. A balanced diet with these products is a rich source of vitamins B1, C and E, folic acid, magnesium and iron and contains minimal cholesterol and saturated fats. With regular consumption, they may also aid in minimizing the risks of heart and metabolic disorders, diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure and certain types of cancers.
The increasing prevalence of chronic lifestyle diseases and intolerance for animal protein represents one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, the widespread adoption of vegan dietary habits across the globe is also driving the market growth. With the rising consciousness among consumers regarding animal health and the prevention of cruelty against animals in the food industry, there is a shift in the preference for plant-based food products across the globe. This, in turn, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Additionally, the development of innovative products, such as plant-based milk, eggs and meat, is acting as another growth-inducing factor. These products are rich in essential nutrients and are nearly identical in taste to their animal-sourced counterparts. Other factors, including extensive promotional activities by celebrities and athletes to encourage the consumption of vegetarian products to maintain a healthy lifestyle and the easy product availability through proliferating online retail channels, are anticipated to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global plant-based food market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
