F&B and animal feed together accounted for major share in 2022 due to increasing demand for plant based protein products coupled with rising pet population across the country

  • The applications of soy protein in the UK market are majorly dominated by the food and beverage segment. In 2022, soy protein was mainly driven by applications in the meat and meat alternative products sub-segment, followed by dairy and dairy alternative products, accounting for 23.83% and 21.04% by volume, respectively.
  • UK consumers are shifting from animal protein products to plant-based protein products due to rising health consciousness. Soy protein continues to be customers' preferred option among all other plant-based proteins. In 2021, around 60% of UK consumers shifted toward plant-based products as they are considered healthier. More people are turning to vegan protein-based meat replacements due to the rising allergic reactions to animal proteins. In the United Kingdom, the consumption of soy-based foods is also encouraged by the government and various associations, which is further boosting the demand for soy protein-fortified foods in the country.
  • Animal feed held the second major share in the market. It is projected to register a CAGR of 2.14%, by value, during the forecast period. Soybean meal, which is the by-product of oil extraction, has a high crude protein content of 44-50% and a balanced amino acid composition, making it complementary to maize meal for feed formulations. In pet food, soy protein concentrates are typically used as a partial substitute for meat and meat meal ingredients and as a meat extender in dry and canned pet foods. The UK pet population increased from 9.6 million in 2020 to 10.2 million in 2021, thus boosting the demand for soy protein in pet food formulations.
