Global Lentil Market to Reach 8.6 Million Tons by 2024

A member of the legume family, lentils have become a staple all across the world, particularly in the developing regions such as India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Lentils are loaded with all the essential nutrients which include vitamin A & B, proteins, potassium, iron, minerals, fibres and complex carbohydrates. These nutrients help to detoxify the body, prevent inflammation, improve digestive system and immune system, boost the functioning of the heart, increase satiety, help to lose weight and fight fatigue.



The common types of lentil available in different colours are green, red, yellow, brown and black colour. Over the past several years, the demand for lentils in the food industry has increased on account of their earthy flavour and taste-enhancing capability. Moreover, their long shelf-life, low cost and ease of cooking have also influenced the demand for lentils worldwide. They are extensively used in the form of flour and split pieces in a variety of dishes such as bakery products, breading, batters, snack foods, beverages and meat products. Some of the other growth inducing factors include huge population growth, increasing disposable incomes, a shift towards ready-to-eat foods and the growth of the organised food retail sector. According to a new report by Expert Market Research, the global lentil market reached a volume of 6.6 Million Tons in 2018 and is further expected to reach 8.6 Million Tons by 2024.
