Market Outlook

In 2018, the global pea protein market reached almost USD 52 million in 2018. It is expected to witness a robust growth in the coming years, growing at a CAGR of 19.2% in the forecast period of 2019-2024. In 2024, the market is projected to attain USD 146.6 million.

The rising demand for plant-based protein is aiding the pea protein industry growth. The global plant-based protein industry attained a value of nearly USD 11.56 billion in 2018. North America accounts for the largest share in the global plant-based protein market. The US is a major market in the region as consumers are increasingly seeking out meat and dairy alternatives because of environmental and health reasons. Europe and Asia are the other significant regional markets in the plant protein industry. The two regions, together, account for over 50% of the industry.

While soy dominates the plant-based protein market, pea protein is projected to witness the fastest growth in the coming years. Between 2013 to 2016, the number of new products containing pea protein as a significant ingredient saw an increase of almost 195%. North America and Europe are the leading markets for pea protein ingredients. Pea protein is witnessing a rising demand in the US, especially from the beverage segment. After soy protein, pea protein accounted for the largest segment in the plant-based protein beverage launches in the US between 2013-2017. The industry in North America is being aided by the robust production of peas in Canada. The country accounts for nearly 30% of the global peas production and is also a major exporter of peas, globally.

Properties and Applications

Pea protein refers to the protein extracted from yellow peas and finds applications as a dairy and meat alternative. It is usually consumed as a substitute for whey protein and has properties similar to casein due to its legumin content. According to types, they can be divided into isolate, concentrate, and textured types. By form, they can be bifurcated into dry and wet. Textured pea protein is widely used in meat alternatives and snack bars. The common application sectors for pea protein are:

  • Functional Food
  • Beverages
  • Sports Nutrition
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Meat Additives
  • Bakery and Confectionery
  • Others

The increasing population of people adopting vegan or vegetarian diets is also aiding the market. While veganism is still considered a niche interest, it is expected to witness a healthy growth in the coming years. Major players in the food and beverage industry are also introducing plant-based or vegan alternatives to traditional products, further aiding the global pea protein market. The industry is also being driven by the growing urban population, along with the rising interest among the younger consumers.

The various health benefits of pea protein are acting as a catalyst for the industry growth. It helps improve blood circulation and calcium absorption, along with regulating the blood sugar.
