Global Fungal Protein Market is valued at approximately USD 187.77 million in 2022 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 9.5% over the forecast period 2023-2030. Fingal protein is a protein type that is derived from a fungi-based sustainable food source. It is found in various different application sources such as food and beverages, animal nutrition, pharmaceuticals, and others. It includes extract proteins derived from yeast and proteins made from Fusarium venenatum. It offers multiple features, including good source of proteins, vitamins, folic acid, and minerals, which makes it an ideal option for usage in both human food and beverage applications as well as animal feed. The surging demand for protein-reach food products, rising inclination towards plant-based diets, growing usage in animal feed, high consumption of allergen-free food, along with change in dietary patterns are major factors that are stipulating the market demand across the globe.
Additionally, functional foods are high in demand as a result of the rising prevalence of a range of diseases, growing health consciousness, shifting dietary needs, and consumers’ openness to trying new things. Functional foods offer additional health advantages over basic nutritional food. Fungal proteins have been used in the production of functional meals and supplements because they may have positive impacts on the immune system and cholesterol levels. As per Statista, in 2021, the global functional food and beverage sector was estimated to be worth around USD 281.14 billion, which is anticipated to grow and reach USD 529.66 billion by 2028. Hence, the surging demand for functional foods & beverages is playing a vital role in the growth of the Fungal Protein Market during the estimated period. Moreover, the increasing demand for meat substitutes, as well as the rising use of yeast extract in the processed food industry present various lucrative opportunities over the forecasting years. However, the imposition of stringent government regulations regarding various ingredients and the quality of ingredients used in the products, along with the availability of alternatives are challenging the market growth throughout the forecast period of 2023-2030.
The key regions considered for the Global Fungal Protein Market study include Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominated the market in 2022 owing to the rising preference for the adoption of healthy products, increasing application in the pharmaceutical industry, and growing consumption of meat substitutes. Whereas, Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR over the forecasting years. The development of the cosmeceuticals industry, high demand for health supplement and protein-rich food, as well as rising focus on the sustainable and eco-friendly production are significantly propelling the market demand across the region.
