Meat analogue, also known as mock meat, is food product that approximates the aesthetic qualities and chemical characteristics of certain types of meat. The hunt for nutritious and convenient food items by health-conscious vegetarian consumers to best suit their busy life led to the evolution of meat analogue. They are made from vegetable-based, fruit-based, grain-based, and dairy-based sources including soy bean, mushrooms, cauliflower, peas, legumes, jackfruit, and others.

Scarcity of animal protein and protein-energy malnutrition are the most serious prevalent problems faced by  underdeveloped countries. In addition, widespread animal diseases, such as mad cow disease, have created a pressure on vegetable food product manufacturers to produce meat alternatives. Such conditions lead to the increase in the demand for meat analogues. Furthermore, the rise in number of consumers adopting veganism across the globe has led to an increased preference for plant-based meat alternatives. Many manufacturers, such as Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat, have introduced vegetarian burgers that taste almost like meat burgers. This has created a positive impact on the meat analogue market. However, meat substitutes have potential risks associated with eating too many soy-based products. The probable ill effects caused due to consuming these meat substitutes are expected to hamper the growth of the market.

Since plant-based food products are becoming increasingly popular, especially in the developing countries such as Asia-Pacific, developing meat analogue products which match the consumer’s local tastes and preferences can be viewed as an opportunity by the manufacturers to expand their market base.
