Vegan Protein Powder Market Research, 2031

The global vegan protein powder industry was valued at $3.5 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $7.3 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2022 to 2031.

Vegan Protein Powder Market

The vegan protein powder market share is segmented into Nature, Product Type, Age Group, Packaging Type and Distribution Channel.

The vegan protein powder that is processed and derived from different types of nutritional plant sources is known as plant-based protein supplement product. Soy, pea, chickpea, brown rice, spirulina, hemp, and others are some of the key plant-based sources used as prime ingredients for the processing of vegan protein powder.

A significant rise in the vegan population across the globe is a major factor behind the surging vegan protein powder market demand. Moreover, the rise in the prevalence of zoonotic diseases among humans and rising awareness about this is a major factor that is fueling the adoption of vegan protein among consumers. It is estimated that around 1% of the global population is vegan and this number is expected to rise significantly in the forthcoming years. Furthermore, rising consumer awareness regarding the benefits of vegan protein over animal protein is boosting the growth of the vegan protein powder market.

According to the Vegan Society, in 2021, there were 79 million vegans around the globe. The rise in awareness about the health benefits associated with the consumption of vegan food products has led the majority of the population to adopt a vegan diet. This has led to burgeon demand for different types of vegan food products from its health-conscious target customers. This similar kind of trend has been enduring even in the sports segments. Professional sports personnel and athletes are now adopting into vegan diet owing to an increase in awareness about the associated benefits. This consumer perception altogether has triggered demand for vegan protein supplement products.

Lactose intolerance is characterized by a reduced capacity to digest lactose, a sugar present in milk and other dairy products. According to National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), lactose intolerance affects around 65% of the adult human population. Lactose intolerance causes bloating, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, prompting many to seek lactose-free dairy alternatives on the market. The increased concern about lactose intolerance in adults is driving the market demand for vegan protein powder products.

The competition in the vegan protein powder market is intense, therefore, market players are focusing on strong branding and improved advertisements to attract consumers’ interest. Branding and advertisements play a vital role to gain consumer cognizance regarding the products. As a result, players are venturing into lucrative marketing campaigns to attract consumers. For instance, in January 2020, Premier Protein, a supplement company, announced the launch of a creative advertisement campaign with the tagline "Too Good to be Good" to be advertised on television, YouTube, and other social media sites.

The campaign was created to attract consumers and present a perspective that vegan proteins are unique. Thus, the use of social media, strong branding and advertisement tactics help in increasing the popularity and the sale of products, which, in turn, notably contribute to the growth of the global vegan protein powder market.

Advancements in science and technology have helped to bring out solutions to different problems. In recent times, the global population is concerned about maintaining proper health conditions; therefore, the need for weight management and calorie management in individuals has increased. Vegan protein products are a suitable substitute for a complete meal for an individual, and these products assist in managing calorie portions and fulfill the protein requirement. However, vegan protein products incur a high manufacturing cost due to the involvement of additional manufacturing processes, usage of advanced technology, and high-class raw materials to improve the nutritional value of the product. High manufacturing costs further force manufacturers to reflect a higher sales price of vegan protein powder. Consumers in developed economies have moved to protein products to improve their overall health due to the rise in health concerns and changing lifestyles. On the contrary, in developing economies, consumers are price-sensitive; hence, the chance of opting for high-priced vegan protein products is low. Thus, the decline in sales of vegan protein powders in developing and weaker economic countries hinders the growth of the vegan protein powder market.

Analyst Review

According to the insights of CXOs of the leading companies, over the past couple of years, there has been a surge in demand for different types of vegan food products, which is attributable to the rise in awareness about the health benefits associated with the product consumption.

With surge in demand for plant-based protein supplements coupled with the rise in the number of health-conscious consumers, some of the key players in the global vegan protein powder market strategize on expanding their production capacity.

The rise in the rate of internet penetration around the major parts of the world makes way for manufacturers to initiate several key online marketing programs as online platforms are one of the easiest ways to create awareness about the specifications and features of plant-based protein supplement products among the target customers.

CXOs further added that the demand for plant-based protein has surged with rise in awareness regarding wellbeing among the consumers, which is generally promoted by the growing online health sector or by the local key players either by advertisement or by counseling their customers in person regarding the benefits of their products over their health. As the knowledge regarding nutritional deficiency is still very less among consumers, spreading awareness is still necessary for developing countries, which are highly affected.

Moreover, diseases such as chronic kwashiorkor, marasmus, impaired mental health, edema, organ failure, wastage & shrinkage of muscle tissues, and weak immune system are some of the diseases that are common due to deficiency of protein and can be cured by the sufficient availability of protein in the body of the patient. This is a major factor responsible for rise in the demand for vegan protein in the market as consumers demand plant-based substitutes for consumption. Therefore, awareness regarding plant-based protein is on the rise among consumers globally directly or indirectly, which has propelled the demand for vegan protein powder in the market.
