Increasing consumer interest in dietary protein has bolstered demand for pea protein globally. According to a Future Market Insights (FMI) report, the market is set to reach a valuation of US$ 3.2 Bn in 2021, growing at an exponential rate of over 14.2% through the end of 2031.
Consumers are focusing on plant-based proteins sources due growing interest in vegetarian and vegan diets, clean label trends, and the need to minimize allergens from animal-based products.
Millennial consumers are increasingly concerned about their health and nutrition, which has led to increased adoption of organic and natural food, free of additives, with non-GMO certifications. This trend is expected to increase demand for pea protein in the global market.
A growing millennial population is likely to create opportunities for food and beverage manufacturers. North America and Europe will continue to exhibit high demand for pea protein, while South Asia will emerge as a lucrative region for market players.
The global rise in obesity and diabetes rate is also influencing consumers to change their dietary habits, creating a conducive environment for pea protein sales.
Companies are therefore focusing on labelling their products appropriately in accordance to strict regulatory guidelines. Organic food products, for example, are identified through their labels, which often certify their 100 purity.
Furthermore, the growing number of private label brands and increasing investments in promotional campaigns and marketing strategies for organic products evoke a sense of authenticity for product purchases.
The pea protein industry is influenced by growth in premium protein lines. Premium product sales are currently mainstream in Japan, and are increasingly distinguishing themselves from private label options. Premium ‘selected’ product versions are aimed at consumers who are willing to pay a higher price for high-quality ingredients.

“The number of vegans and vegetarians on a global scale has risen dramatically in recent years as consumers actively pursue sustainable lifestyles. Following this trend, there has been an increase in demand for vegan and natural products, creating a favorable environment for growth of the market through the coming decade,” says a lead analyst at FMI.
