India Plant-Based Meat Market

Plant-Based Meat Overview

Plant-based meat refers to the meat derived directly from plants. Instead of depending on animals to convert plants into meat, plant-based meat is produced more efficiently by skipping the animal and converting the plant ingredients directly into the meat. It is created to look, feel and taste like conventional meat obtained from animal products. Plant-based meat is considered healthier as compared to regular meat as it is low in calories and saturated fats and high in nutritional contents. The plant-based meat is composed of protein, fat, minerals, vitamins, and water, just like traditional meat. Coconut oil, beet juice, and vegetable protein extract are some of the ingredients used in plant-based meat.

Plant-Based Meat Products Market Trends

Growth Driver

Rising Demand for Meat Consumption in India

The demand for meat consumption in India is on a surge. According to an OECD report published in November 2021, India consumed six million tonnes of meat in 2020, which is equivalent to 4.6 kilograms per person. About half of India's population consumes non-vegetarian meals at least once a week. However, there is an increasing interest in the country for next-generation plant-based meat products. One of the reasons for the high meat consumption is India's robust youth and millennial population. India hosts one of the highest youth populations in the world, with an average age of 29.

Concepts like "flexitarian" and "closet-non vegetarian" are quite popular among them, which refer to vegetarian, who enjoys meat and chicken, generally away from the eyes of their vegetarian parents. Thus, plant-based meat options are quite lucrative for this section of the population. A 2017 survey by Observer research foundation highlighted that 73% of Indians are protein deficient. Thus, the growing awareness among the vegetarian population regarding protein deficiency and the significance of a balanced diet and consuming a sufficient amount of protein regularly is also contributing towards the growth of the market in the region.

Favorable Marketing and Growth Strategies Adopted by Major players

A large number of start-ups as well as major food industry market giants have forayed into the budding plant-based meat market of India, which is currently in its infancy but is expected to register a boom in the forthcoming years. For instance- In January 2022, the giant tobacco-to-food conglomerate ITC unveiled a range of plant-based chicken patties and nuggets to be sold under its Incredible brand name. Udaipur-based GreenDot Enterprises, which was established in 2013, has gradually built a countrywide presence for its shelf-stable meat substitutes.

Similarly, Mumbai-based Blue Tribe Foods, set up in 2020, has launched an extensive range of alternatives from mutton to chicken products. Recently, Blue Tribe Foods appointed the celebrity couple, Indian cricket star Virat Kohli and his wife, the actor Anushka Sharma, as brand ambassadors and investors. Moreover, certain Indian firms work with foreign players. Imagine Foods, promoted by Bollywood actor couple Genelia and Riteish Deshmukh, has amalgamated with US agri-business giant ADM to deliver plant-based meat versions of kebabs, biryani, and curries to India's consumers. These factors are vital in propelling the Indian plant-based meats market over the forecast period.

Restraints

Low Level of Technology Adoption affecting Taste

The level of technology adoption and underlying science behind plant-based foods is very nascent in India. Most of the companies are focusing on product formats imitating the product form and texture of meat, but very limited businesses are targeting the underlying technology, such as protein chemistry and innovative processing like high-moisture extrusion. This results in impacting the taste of the meat products. Also, plant-based meat products are quite expensive, further limiting the market expansion. Moreover, a lack of a skilled technical workforce in India, mainly in the chemistry and processing of food proteins, is restraining the growth of India's plant-based meat market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the India Plant-Based Meat Market

The Covid-19 pandemic resulted in a drastic economic decline in low- and middle-income countries due to loss of income, human and goods movement restrictions imposed by governments, the shutdown of businesses, de-globalization, and collapse of food markets to both demand shocks and supply restraints. The pandemic outbreak impacted all industries, and the plant-based meat market is no exception. The plant-based meat market was subjected to both positive as well as negative impacts. Amidst the lockdown, the market witnessed a moderate volume growth and revenue as a result of the rising adoption of plant-based meat in the food and pharmaceutical industry.

Moreover, COVID-19 has pushed consumers towards conscious purchasing and consumption. A report titled "India Emerges as a Burgeoning Market for Plant-based Meat Substitutes" states that these products are being viewed as "immunity-boosting" foods. Nevertheless, the disrupted supply chain for plant-based meat materials owing to the shutdown of boundaries and strict lockdowns levied by the government affected the Indian plant-based meat market adversely.
