The global grasshoppers protein market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 18.5% during the forecast period of 2023-2031, driven by increasing protein deficiency and the inclination of masses to adopt new protein alternatives.
Grasshoppers, commonly known as ‘chapulines’, is an extremely nutritious insect with around 40% protein, 43% unsaturated fat and 13% dietary fiber. Interestingly, one grasshopper has more protein content than prominent animals and plant protein sources like chicken, eggs, and beans. Along with all essential amino acids, it is also rich in several minerals like iron, zinc, magnesium, calcium, and manganese. It is already a prominent ingredient in Mexican, Japanese, Korean, and African cuisine and gradually gaining a lot of traction as the next sustainable protein source.
As the world population is estimated to reach 9.7 billion by 2050, it will require more than double the quantity of food resources being consumed now. This has led to a situation where researchers are looking for alternate food items that offer quality nutrition along with easy production and availability options. Hence, a hike in grasshoppers protein market growth is expected as it is an excellent source of protein, unsaturated fats, and dietary fiber.
Insects have already been a viable food option for several countries. This can be attributed to their high nutritional, environmental and economic value. Along with grasshoppers, silkworms, bees, and ants are a delicacy in several parts of the world. Grasshoppers are commonly consumed in Korean rural areas while a Japanese dish called “Inago” is another delicacy. Grasshoppers are a vital part of African food. They are widely consumed in Uganda and Kenya, owing to its high protein bioavailability and energy.
Considering the popularity and benefits, Singapore Food Authority (SFA) has recently approved selling 16 species of insects as a food source. This includes several species of crickets, grasshoppers, and silkworms, which clearly indicates that the grasshoppers protein market demand will expand in the forecast period.
Grasshopper protein is also used as a viable protein option in animal feed. Insecticide free grasshopper is an effective replacement of soymeal and fishmeal and can be used to feed poultry and pigs as well.
In addition, Hargol, an Israel food tech company, has launched a line of grasshopper protein. As people are getting more aware about the impact of their dietary habits on the environment and food startups actively working to establish sustainable production lines, the market for grasshopper protein will experience an upswing in the coming years.

Market Breakup by Region
Globalization has promoted a lot of cross-cultural activities within the east and the west. The grasshoppers protein market share has conventionally been dominated by the Asia Pacific and African region. However, North America and Europe hold tremendous potential of growth. This can be attributed to the masses considering better and easily available protein alternatives to meet their dietary needs.
The market for grasshopper protein is observing a constant surge, despite the presence of a prominent whey and casein protein market. This can be due to the high number of adulterants found in the protein powder that can cause various side effects too. Grasshopper protein on the other hand, just like whey protein, is a complete protein, loaded with all essential amino acids and is less prone to cause side effects. Such factors might contribute to high market demand in the future.
