Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Soy Protein-based Products

The soy protein segment of the North American plant protein market is propelled by demand for sports and nutrition products by athletes, bodybuilders, and recuperating patients. Additionally, the weight management category is also growing, where protein is the main constituent ingredient. A huge lactose intolerant population drives the demand for alternate dairy substitutes, such as soy protein, which characterizes North America. Furthermore, there is a substantial untapped potential for the GMO-free and clean-label based soy protein ingredients. Manufacturers are seeking eco-friendly ways of cultivating and/or sourcing soybeans to process into high quality and safe soy proteins.


The United States Holds the Largest Market Share

The demand for plant proteins is growing at a fast rate, owing to changes in lifestyle, lack of balanced dietary intake, and improved R&D to develop new kinds of plant protein-enriched products. The United States continues to capture the largest market share for plant protein, followed by Canada and Mexico. The demand for processed and low cholesterol foods has paved the way for the plant-based protein market in the region. Nowadays, consumers are switching to other alternative products, such as green label food products, coupled with the raising awareness of healthy and plant-based products, due to an increase in the availability of counterfeit products in the market.


Competitive Landscape

Companies, such as Roquette and Manitoba, are working in every possible way to reach out to customers with the broad product portfolio and distribution channels. Some of the major players in the North American plant protein market are Archer Daniels Midland, Cargill Inc., DuPont, Kerry Group, and Omega Protein Corporation, among others.
