Global Plant-based Meat Market Size More Than Triples at Robust CAGR of 17.68% to Reach USD 18.25 Billion by 2030

Published | 15 February 2024

Global Plant-based Meat Market is flourishing because of growing awareness about health benefits of plant-based meat products and concerns surrounding animal rights.

BlueWeave Consulting, a leading strategic consulting and market research firm, in its recent study, estimated the Global Plant-based Meat Market size at USD 5.84 billion in 2023. During the forecast period between 2024 and 2030, BlueWeave expects the Global Plant-based Meat Market size to boom at a CAGR of 17.68% reaching a value of USD 18.25 billion by 2030. Growing awareness of carbon emissions in the animal meat sector and growing concerns about animal welfare are major growth factors driving the Global Plant-based Meat Market. In addition, it is projected that the growing number of vegans and the introduction of several plant-based food products would accelerate the expansion of the Global Plant-based Meat Market.

Opportunity: Growing Accessibility to Plant-based Meat through Online Platforms

Plant-based meat product providers are increasingly launching their products on online grocery platforms, which is boosting the accessibility of these products. Moreover, these companies are also launching websites that allow consumers to browse their product portfolio for plant-based meat and have it delivered to their doorsteps. For instance, UNLIMEAT, a plant-based Korean food brand, launched its online store in November, called UNLIMEAT SHOP, which displays a wide range of products including pulled pork and Korean BBQ.

Impact of Escalating Geopolitical Tensions on Global Plant-based Meat Market

The escalating geopolitics have disrupted the growth of the Global Plant-based Meat Market. For instance, sunflower oil is one of the main ingredients in the production of plant-based meat and is combined with soya-based heme protein to create a meat flavor and color. Ukraine is the world’s biggest exporter of sunflower oil, as reported by vegconomist. However, Russia invasion of Ukraine and the emergence of a full-fledged war between the two nations led to shortage of ingredients in the Plant-based Meat Market. According to a survey by ProVeg International, 61% of European plant-based meat firms reported a spike in raw material prices and 64% of firms reported a surge in energy and transportation costs. The price increase is anticipated to eventually lead to an increase in product price, which may result in a decline in the consumption of plant-based meat products globally.
