Key Takeaways

  • Due to the large vegetarian and vegan population in developing countries such as India, pulses are widely consumed as a source of protein.
  • Pulses boast double the protein content of wheat and three times that of rice.
  • Plant-based food sales increased 3 times faster in 2021 globally than non-plant-based food sales; in particular, plant-based online retail experienced around 200% year-over-year growth in sales.


Pulses are a great source of essential nutrients such as potassium, folate, iron, vitamins, and antioxidants. Changing lifestyles and hectic working hours are contributing to a greater adoption of ready-to-eat (RTE) food products. Consumers are on the lookout for healthy ready-to-eat meals and snack options. Pulses are an excellent ingredient to incorporate into convenience foods due to their health benefits.


Some of the factors driving the pulses market include consumers’ growing demand for plant-based diets and the rising use of pulses as plant-based meat substitutes. Being a fibre-rich food, pulses offer several health benefits, including improved digestion, weight management, and reduced risk of chronic diseases. Pulses are frequently incorporated in several cuisines globally, such as Indian, Mexican, and Mediterranean, among others.

Market Segmentation

Global Pulses Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032 offers a detailed analysis of the market based on the following segments:


Market Breakup Categories
Type Chick Peas, Kaspa Peas, Lentils, Pigeon Peas, Fava Beans, Cow Beans, Beans, Black Gram, Mung Beans, Others.
End Use Households, Food Services (HoReCa), and Feed.
Region North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East and Africa


Beans are expected to dominate the pulses market share due to their health benefits in the coming years

A 100 grams serving of kidney beans contains 25 grams of fibre; thus beans help to protect against heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and digestive illness. The prevalence of functional gastrointestinal disorders in adults is close to 40% globally in 2020, which fuels the demand for beans for their advantageous properties. The key producers of beans include India, followed by Brazil, Myanmar, and the United Republic of Tanzania.


Lentils are expected to be the fastest-growing segment in the pulses market. As lentils contain folate, which is an essential ingredient for a baby’s development, they are often included in a pregnant woman’s diet. The key producers of lentils include Canada, India, Australia, and Turkey in 2021. Canada produced around 1.6 MMT in 2021. The health benefits of lentils, such as improved heart health, fighting fatigue, and improved digestion, regularity, and satiety, further create opportunities for the market.


Households are expected to be major end users of beans in the forecast period

Households hold a significant share in the market as pulses are a prominent staple diet in many cultures, especially in India, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Brazil and Mexico. Pulses exhibit diverse culinary applications in traditional dishes across Asia, Africa, and America, serving as integral components in soups, spreads, meals, snacks, and breakfast items in households. Further, the popularity of pulses can be attributed to their rich protein content, dietary fibre, and essential nutrients.


Meanwhile, the demand for pulses in the HoReCa sector is likely to rise in the coming years amid rising culinary innovations.
