Plant is a one of the significant sources of protein component, other including animal-based protein and synthetic protein. Currently, consumers are preferring plant-based protein over animal-based protein since consumers are more preferring green natural ingredients. Some of the rich sources of plant-based protein are soy beans, chia seed, Lentil, triticale. Plant-based protein is majorly used in food and beverage industry as food supplement. It is also used in pharmaceutical industry since, plant-based proteins are safe and cos-effective to the pharmaceutical industry. Plant-based protein also used as skin care and hair care ingredients in the cosmetics and personal care industry. Currently, demand for low-carbohydrate, and high-protein functional ingredients are increasing, hence, plant-based protein market is expected grow in the near future.

North America, Western Europe and japan are the lucrative market for the plant-based protein, owing to increasing the health consciousness.
Global Plant-Based Protein Market Dynamics:
Growing awareness of the benefits of plant-based protein and its sources are one of the major growth drivers of global plant-based protein market; moreover, recently, health consciousness that spreading over the developing countries is another factor of that increases global plant-based protein market in terms of revenue. Increasing application of plant-based protein through fortification also helps to grow the global plant-based market in terms of value, for instance use of plant-based protein ingredients grow in fortified beverages.
Substitute sources of protein such as animal based protein and synthetic protein create restrains to global plant-based protein market to grow. For instance, presently, laboratory made amino acid synthesis and protein compensation are proffering in feed industry.
Increasing demand for natural and organic products there is a high opportunity for plant-based protein in the world. Moreover, geographically Asia-pacific region for plant-based protein is anticipated grow at a significant rate in terms of value, hence there is a substantial opportunity to increase the revenue of plant-based market share by penetrating with its various applications.
