Edible mushrooms are fleshy, edible fruits of many species of macrofungi consumed for their nutritional and medicinal value. Growing cultivation on account of growing awareness of the nutritional value of mushrooms is the prime driver of the market. Mushrooms are a rich source of riboflavin, niacin, and pantothenic acid, and are low calorie foods thus making them ideal for lowering cholesterol. Mushrooms have negligible saturated fat, sodium and gluten content while they are high in fiber making them popular among the health conscious consumers. Certain species of mushrooms such as prized truffle, matsutake and morel fetch a very hgigh price making them commercially attractive. Mushrooms also are traditionally prized for their medicinal properties and are known to lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases and improve the body’s metabolism.
The advancements in processing and packaging coupled with development of refrigerated supply chain have rendered their transport efficient. Attractive economics of cultivation and processing such as low land needs, vertical farming, and development of irradiation facilities are expected to further improve the market demand.
Proper identification of mushrooms remain a strong restraint due to the poisonous nature of certain mushroom species. Thus brand awareness and processing innovations to render mushrooms safe for consumption is the critical need of the market. The macroeconomic restraint is the lack of consensus over free trade in agriculture products is hampering trade between nations.

“The mushroom market has been marred by lack of processing and the absolute dominance of local sale”’ says Mr. Suhail Noolkar researcher at Market Research Future.
The market also reflects the dominance of a fewer species such as button mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms and oyster mushrooms, which together accounted for more than 75.0 % of the global mushroom market in 2016. Button mushrooms alone contributed for more than 35.0 % of the total mushroom market in 2016.
“The situation reflects a lack of innovation in processing conditionally poisonous mushrooms fit for consumption”’ adds Mr. Noolkar. The market is also constrained by lack of newer hybrid strains which have a huge potential to boost the industry. The market is expected to shift towards other species with shiitake mushrooms expected to grow the fastest.
Further Mr. Noolkar, expected the industry to shift towards innovative use of agriculture waste such as sugarcane bagasse, casing material, controlled climate houses, wastes from fertilizer and chemical plants, hydroponics and other.
