Growth Drivers

Growing Awareness about Health Benefits of Vegan Meat over Animal Meat

Plant-based diets continue to grow, helping people eat more fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, and seeds. In addition, plant-based products provide a variety of health benefits, which consumers are becoming increasingly aware of. Consuming animal-based meat excessively can lead to obesity, type-2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers. Unlike animal meat, plant-based meat doesn't cause such diseases. In addition, they help build a stronger immune system. Moreover, plant-based meats provide several health benefits compared to conventional meats, as well as being safer than conventional meat. There has been a significant decline in conventionally processed meat products, such as burgers, sausages, and nuggets, due to the widespread adoption of plant-based meat products. Compared with animal meat, plant-based meat contains fewer calories, cholesterol, and saturated fats. As a result, they usually contain higher levels of micronutrients such as zinc, iron, and calcium. All these health benefits of vegan meat influence people, which in turn fosters market growth.

Constant Research and Development in Vegan Meat fuels the Market

The Saudi Arabia Vegan Meat Market is undergoing continuous research and development. This has resulted in a steady influx of food items in recent years, responding to the market trend and shifting demand toward plant-based meat products. Manufacturers are constantly seeking to extend their retail presence through physical storefronts. For instance, Tanmiah Food Company, a Saudi Arabian meat processor, has stated that it is investigating developing plant-based meat replacements. Thus, there is a rising desire for healthier and more sustainable solutions among various manufacturers. Moreover, in Saudi supermarkets for the manufacturing process of vegan meat, new market players may focus on comprehensive research on various sources of plant-based protein. All these factors boost the growth of the Saudi Arabia Vegan Meat Market during the forecast period (2022-2028).

Increasing Launch of Vegan Meat Products in Various Restaurants

Moreover, various famous cafes in the country are offering more quality and crave-able vegan dishes, from salads and burgers to mock meats made of ingredients like vegetables, wheat gluten, and soy.

Restraints

Higher Prices of Vegan Meat Compared to Regular Meat

One of the primary stumbling blocks in the vegan meat sector is cost. When compared to animal-based meat, plant-based or vegan meat is more expensive, which will limit its adoption among price-sensitive consumers. Plant-based or vegan meat substitutes are attempting to lower their prices, as their high-cost compared to conventional meat is stifling the fast-growing plant-based business. Moreover, plant-based meat is more costly than traditional meat. Due to trade barriers, disruptions in the availability of raw materials, and inefficient distribution systems caused by COVID-19, plant-based meat prices are anticipated to rise even further. Raw material scarcity and high expenses, as well as high production costs, are expected to stifle the growth of the Saudi Arabia Vegan Meat Market.

Impact of COVID-19 on Saudi Arabia Vegan Meat Market

The unexpected outbreak of COVID-19 both positively and negatively impacted the Saudi Arabia Vegan Meat Market. Due to the closure of malls, grocery shops, and restaurants, sales initially decreased, and many productions were suspended during the entire lockdown. The production also suffered a severe shortage of raw materials, as well as a halt in processing and distribution activities. However, people are now more concerned about the food they eat as a result of the COVID-19 virus's proliferation. There is rising health awareness and emphasis on the benefits of plant-based foods in improving immunity, muscle strength, and maintaining a balanced diet. Furthermore, rising government measures to promote a vegan meat diet, as well as people's awareness of the importance of staying fit and healthy during the epidemic, are accelerating the appeal of vegan meat foods.
