The global fungal protein market size was valued at $156.6million in 2020, and is expected to garner $386.6million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 9.5% from 2021 to 2030.In 2020, the yeastsegment accounted for more than half of the total fungal protein market share. 

Fungal protein is a protein derived from fungi-based sustainable food source. It comprises yeast-based extract protein and fusarium venenatum based proteins. It has numerous attributes such as it is rich in proteins, vitamins, folic acid, and minerals that makes it an ideal choice for use in both human food & beverages as well as animal feed applications.

Food products are being transformed, processed, and prepared for ready consumption. In the emerging countries, prepared and ready-to-eat products, soft drinks, and westernized fast foods have replaced unique traditional food habits and ethnic cuisines. Westernization of food consumption patterns have resulted in increased intake of calorie, sugar, fats, and animal products. In addition, this trends has simultaneously led to decline in the intake of cereals, potatoes, and pulses. Ready-to-eat products were introduced in the 1990s, and in the present scenario, represent a significant share of food expenditure. All these aforementioned factors are responsible for the increasein the fungal protein market size in the coming years.

The regulations associated with fungal-based protein products are related to various ingredients used in the process, food hygiene labeling & packaging, health claims, and others. For instance, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations on menu labeling, the labels must have information, such as nutrition facts, ingredients used, common name of the products, name & address of manufacturers, and others, for food products that are sold in various supermarkets, retail stores, and bakeries. Therefore, these regulations regarding various ingredients and quality of ingredients used in the products are expected to hamper the growth of fungal protein market.

On the contrary, increase in willingness of consumers to buy premium and environment friendly products is expected to provide opportunities for the fungal protein market growth in the coming years.

The corona virus outbreak all over the globe has created medical emergency. Due to which, there is an increase in the demand for food items, hygiene products, and medical products in the market. COVID-19 has increased the sales of traditional, health, and staple food items. However, packaged food, bakery products, and meat products have experienced a decline in its sale due to which the demand for yeast extract in these industries also decreased to a significant level. Moreover, yeast is also used in cosmetics and personal care industries. The demand for the products of these industries has also decreased, which declines the growth of the yeast extract market. In addition, the lockdown scenario in various countries hampers the production and supply chain of the yeast extract companies. 

Strong global concerns about the pandemic have largely but negatively influenced the global fungal protein market. Moreover, due to the high demand and low supply trends, the prices of snacks products increased in 2020 to overcome on economic instability. On the contrary, disruptions to the supply chain in shipping could lead to temporary shortages in the supply, putting upward pressure on prices in the short term.

According to the fungal protein market analysis, the market is segmented into type, nature, application, and region. Based on type, the market is segmented into yeast and Fusarium Venenatum. Based on nature, the market is segmented into organic and conventional. Food and beverages, animal nutrition, pharmaceuticals, and others are the application of the fungal protein market. Region wise, it is analyzed across North America (the U.S., Canada, and Mexico), Europe (Germany, France, the UK, Spain, Italy, Russia, and rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, Australia, South Korea, Indonesia, Srilanka, and rest of Asia-Pacific), and LAMEA (Brazil, Argentina, United Arab Emirates, Nigeria, Turkey, South Africa, and rest of LAMEA).

On the basis of type, the yeast snacks segment accounted for the maximum share in the global fungal protein market in 2020, and is expected to remain dominantduringthe fungal protein market forecast period.The yeast extract refers to a variety of processed yeast products generated by extracting the cell contents, which are utilized as food additives, flavorings, and nutrients for bacterial growth media. They can be found in a wide range of packaged foods, including frozen dinners, crackers, junk food, gravy, stock, and more, and are widely applied to generate savory flavors and umami taste sensations. In liquid form, yeast extracts can be dried to a light paste or a dry powder. Furthermore, its taste properties make it a popular addition to soups, sauces, and ready-to-eat meals, as well as snacks and meat dishes.
