India Plant-Based Meat Market to Grow at 27.80% During 2022-2027, Impelled by Shifting Preference for Plant-Based Diets

Published on Oct 12, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "India Plant-Based Meat Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the India plant-based meat market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 27.20% during 2022-2027. Plant-based meat is generally prepared from peas, soy, beans, mung beans, mushrooms or wheat gluten. Additionally, it is added with oils and natural pigments that enhance the flavor and appearance of the product to appear like real meat. Besides this, several binding agents and yeast are also mixed that provide a meatier, more distinctively umami flavor. It is a rich source of essential nutrients, such as zinc, iron, protein and vitamin B12, that provide adequate nutrition to the vegetarian and vegan population. Due to the changing dietary patterns of the masses, there has been a considerable rise in the adoption of plant-based meat across the country.
