According to MarketsandMarkets, the “Textured Vegetable Protein Market by Application (Meat alternatives, Cereals & snacks, Others), Form, Source (Soy, Wheat, and Peas), Type (Slices, Flakes, Chunks, and Granules), and Region – Global Forecast to 2025″, the market size is estimated to be valued at USD 1.1 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 1.5 billion by 2025, recording a CAGR of 6.2%, in terms of value. The changing consumer preference and interest in vegetable protein sources, due to its nutritional profile, inclination toward clean eating, rise in health concerns, and environmental concerns, as well as animal welfare, have resulted in the growth of the alternatives, such as plant-based meat, and ingredients such as textured vegetable protein.
Opportunities: Economical & Environment-friendly substitute to animal-sourced food products
Considering the growing health awareness among consumers, various food products such as meat patties and sausages are being replaced by plant-based/plant-infused meat products, which is expected to have a positive impact on the demand for plant-based protein. According to The Food Science and Health Database Organization, in 2018, “22 million UK citizens now identify as being a ‘flexitarian,’ viewed not as a fad diet, but a permanent lifestyle choice, notably most popular among highly influential millennials.” Thus, the increasing vegan and flexitarian population is projected to drive the textured vegetable protein market during the forecast period. Increased soy and wheat crop cultivation in developing regions such as South America and the Asia Pacific has augmented the widespread cultivation of soybean and wheat grains across the globe, resulting in the availability of soy and wheat products such as textured vegetable proteins.

Challenges: Stringent government regulations & concerns over safety due to the inclusion of the GM ingredients
Soy, wheat, and pea are among the prominent sources used in the production of textured vegetable proteins and are produced in countries such as Brazil, the US, Argentina, China, and India. With the augmenting demand for plant-based food & beverages among the consumers, the demand for soy, wheat, and pea has also increased. However, to meet the growing demand for various textured protein sources, adulteration with genetically modified (GM) ingredients pose an emerging threat. For instance, non-GMO soybeans are primarily used for human consumption, whereas the GM soybeans are utilized mostly in livestock feed.
Most GM soy is industrially produced with hexane, which is detrimental to consumer health if consumed in larger quantities. Thus, the consumption of plant-based food products that have manufactured by GM soybean has resulted in a point of concern for consumers globally.
By source, the soy segment is projected to account for the largest share in the textured vegetable protein market during the forecast period
Soy has been a low-calorie and low-fat source of vegetable protein. It is often used as a meat substitute or meat extender due to its low cost as compared to animal-based sources of protein. Moreover, when textured soy protein is cooked with meat, it aids in retaining more nutrients from the meat by absorbing fluids that are usually lost. Textured soy protein acts as an ideal substitute for meat and is gaining higher traction among vegan and flexitarian consumers. These characteristics are majorly driving the demand for the usage of soy as a prime source for textured vegetable protein.
The North American region is the largest in the textured vegetable protein market during the forecast period.
The textured vegetable protein market is driven by the rise in the detrimental effects of conventional meat production and health concerns among consumers. This has increased the demand for meat alternatives and advancements in the research & development activities to substitute traditional meat products. The North American textured vegetable protein market is led by its various applications with respect to sustainability. Advancements in ingredient development have helped improve the adaptability of textured proteins for a wide range of food applications and are estimated to drive growth in the region. The North American region is the largest market for textured vegetable protein, owing to the development of novel and superior quality meat alternatives, developed technologies, and higher consumer adaption to meat alternatives. The increase in processed and convenience food production and innovations in segments such as meat alternatives and cereals & snacks drives the demand for textured vegetable protein in the North American region.
