Market Report Description

The Global Textured Vegetable Protein Market size is expected to reach $2 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 6.5% CAGR during the forecast period.

Vegetable proteins, sometimes known as veggie proteins, are supplements made from plant sources. Soy, peas, & lentils are just a few examples of these sources. The most popular source of plant proteins is soy. This has traditionally served as the primary source of vegetable protein, coming in powdered, granulated, and textured forms for usage in a variety of applications and end-use markets. Many businesses use vegetable proteins because of their nutritive value and textural qualities.

Textured Vegetable Protein Market - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2018-2028

The modern consumer prefers vegetable protein over animal-supplied proteins because it offers the same nutritional profile as a diet high in complete proteins without the drawback of animal cruelty that is present in typical animal-derived proteins. A sizeable portion of the population in western nations has switched to a diet with less meat intake and is now demanding nutritious and delectable meat-free food items.

Food manufacturers are putting more emphasis on vegetable proteins including pulses, soy protein, and wheat gluten which are processed into meat-like products known as meat analogues, as a result of changes in consumer consumption patterns. The texture, flavor, color, and nutritional properties of particular types of meat are only a few of the aesthetic aspects that these goods imitate.

The market is anticipated to grow as aquaculture firms' need for soy protein isolates rises. Textured soy protein is high in demand and is used in feed. Livestock producers have identified the health advantages of including textured soy protein isolates in animal diets, which is anticipated to increase soy protein isolate sales. In a world where population and food scarcity are growing, aquaculture manufacturers are looking for more effective & long-term solutions to raise healthy species to fulfill escalating market requirements.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The demand for textured vegetable protein supplements, which support the body's overall health and optimal performance by supplying necessary nutrients, is anticipated to rise as a result. Human tissues and cells need protein derived from plants to develop and repair. Along with serving as the basis for strong muscles and tissues, plant protein helps people lose weight. It is generally known how nutrition affects the immune system. Recent studies have highlighted the necessity of consuming enough amounts of specific nutrients, such as protein in COVID-19, elevating the significance of consuming textured soy protein.

Market Growth Factors

Emerging Trend Of Vegan Diet Among Consumers Across The World

Vegetable protein is crucial product for a vegan or in vegetarian diet. People frequently turn to vegetable protein supplements to attain the necessary nutritional profile that would arise from a purely vegan diet. As the number of vegans grows, more businesses are attempting to adapt to the evolving food scene and are introducing more goods with vegetable protein to the market. Thus, it is anticipated that the textured vegetable protein market will be driven by the rising vegan and flexitarian populations throughout the forecast period.

Development In The Extraction Of TVPS From Innovative Sources

Soy, wheat, and pea are the conventional sources of obtaining textured vegetable protein. Other sources, like rice lentils, fava, oats, and chia seeds, have been investigated by manufacturers. Plant-based protein, as well as a number of other vitamins and minerals, are abundant in fava. They include a lot of soluble fiber, which can help with digestion and decrease cholesterol. High-protein, edible pulses that grow in pods include lentils. In various regions across the globe, they have been offered for sale.

Market Restraining Factors

The Awful Flavor Of Soy

The shifting tastes of consumers have spurred the need for meat alternatives and raised the requirement for textured soy protein, reducing the usage of animal proteins in food items. The flavor of soy components, which is attributed to the lipoxygenase enzyme's action on soybean oil, is one of the main reasons why soy products have been used less frequently in western nations such as the US, UK, and Germany. The lipoxygenase breaks down the soy oil during the hydration and milling process into other compounds, including hexanal. The flavors of these compounds are unpleasant.

Type Outlook

Based on type, the textured vegetable protein market is segmented into chunks, flakes, slices, and granules. In 2021, the flakes segment acquired a significant revenue share in the textured vegetable protein market. Flakes are low in fat and high in protein. They keep the body's vital amino acid balance in check, which is necessary for the growth of muscles, connective tissues, and enzymes. They are proteins in their most basic form.

Source Outlook

By source, the textured vegetable protein market is divided into soy, wheat and pea. The soy segment led the textured vegetable protein market with the highest revenue share in 2021. Soy products are becoming more prevalent in the food service sector as a result of the soy protein's well-known health and nutritional benefits as well as the additional advantages of its low moisture and low-fat content.

Form Outlook

Based on form, the textured vegetable protein market is classified into dry and wet. The wet segment procured a substantial revenue share in the textured vegetable protein market in 2021. This segment mainly includes protein shakes and other protein drinks. The protein shakes are in high demand due to the convenience to consume these shakes coupled with the active lifestyle of people nowadays.

Nature Outlook

By nature, the textured vegetable protein market is bifurcated into organic & conventional. In 2021, the conventional segment witnessed the highest revenue share in the textured vegetable protein market. Conventional TVP (textured vegetable protein) is less expensive than most meats and can be used as an extender with fresh meat to save money.
