Plant-based Protein Market Size is Predicted to Attain US$ 22.7 Billion at a 5.7% CAGR by 2031 – Transparency Market Research, Inc.

Wilmington, Delaware, United States, Sept. 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global plant-based protein market is projected to flourish at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2021 to 2031. As per the report published by TMR, a valuation of US$ 22.7 billion is anticipated for the market in 2031. As of 2023, the market for plant-based protein is expected to close at US$ 14.6 billion.

Consumers are becoming more health-conscious and are seeking protein sources that are perceived as healthier than traditional animal-based proteins. Plant-based proteins are often seen as lower in saturated fats and cholesterol, making them attractive to health-conscious individuals.


The surging demand for nutritious food due to increasing incidences of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and other lifestyle diseases, among the global population, has changed the consumer preference toward vegan food. This factor is contributing to the plant-based protein market.

The growing adoption of vegetarian and vegan diets is a significant driver of the plant-based protein market. Vegetarians and vegans rely on plant-based protein sources to meet their nutritional needs, creating a steady demand for plant-based protein products.

Increased awareness of the environmental impact of animal agriculture, including greenhouse gas emissions and deforestation, has led consumers to opt for plant-based diets as a more sustainable choice. Plant-based proteins generally have a lower carbon footprint compared to animal-based proteins.
