NEWARK, Del., Sept. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The global meat alternative market size is expected to be valued at US$ 13 Billion in 2022.

The rising awareness regarding healthy and sustainable foods is one of the major factors that is expected to boost the growth of the meat alternative market during the forecast period. The increasing number of vegans and flexitarians is another factor that is anticipated to fuel the market's growth. Moreover, government bodies across various countries are promoting the consumption of meat alternatives, owing to the health benefits offered by these products.

Such factors are expected to drive the market's growth.

The growth of the meat alternative market is primarily attributed to a widening vegan customer base, in the light of rising awareness about the adverse impact resulting from meat consumption on the environment. Because of its negative effects on the environment and animal welfare, the intensive animal husbandry has been criticized by some sections of society. This in turn has led to a shift towards diets which exclude or limit the use of animal products. In addition, growing apprehension about contracting zoonotic diseases has further led to a reduction in consuming meat products.

Consumer awareness of plant-based meat substitutes is rapidly growing, with more people demanding these because of their stated health benefits, such as the prevention of non-communicable disorders, digestive issues, and obesity. As a result, consumers are changing their eating habits and incorporating a healthy diet, which is expected to boost the demand for meat alternatives. Based on all these trends, the global meat alternative market is expected to surge at a high pace during the analysis period.

The Meat Alternative Market in North America is expected to accumulate the highest market share of 56% in 2022. The growth in North America is attributed to the growing millennial population, where the demographic considers the food source, animal welfare issues, and impact on the environment while making decisions related to purchasing. The US market is one of the frontrunners in scaling the demand for meat alternatives, where consumers eat approximately more than 5 billion meat-free dinners, according to a survey by a supermarket.
