Market Report Description

The Latin America, Middle East and Africa Insect Protein Market would witness market growth of 26.9% CAGR during the forecast period (2021-2027).

Animal-based meals have long been considered nutritional staples because they contain many necessary elements; yet, due to their nutrient richness, edible insects have the capability to act as healthy, sustainable alternatives. Due to their high quantities of vitamin B12, iron, zinc, fiber, vital amino acids, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and antioxidants, edible insects may provide exceptional health advantages. Edible insects like crickets could provide a variety of environmental and nutritional benefits, including a reduction in overall greenhouse gas emissions, reduced agricultural use of land and water, better prevention and management of chronic diseases like diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disease, and improved immune function.

Insects have the potential to be employed as meat substitutes or dietary supplements in the future, benefiting both human health and the environment. The regional manufacturers are working on new ways to use insect protein to benefit starving people. Researchers are developing food items based on insect protein powder to compensate for the lack of nutritional resources in MEA countries like Kenya.

The demand for Insect protein is being driven by changing agricultural practises, increased population and affluence, and a growing market requirement for nutritious animal food. As a source of insect feed, larvae and worms are used. Demand for both categories is expected to rise in response to increased demand for animal food. Because of high feed protein conversion, low GHG emissions, and acceptable feed quality, the insect protein industry would grow more in the upcoming years.
