Potato Protein Market to Reach US$ 300 Mn by 2030; Increased Demand for Plant-based Protein during COVID-19 Pandemic to Support Growth


  • Published On : Nov 11, 2020

Potato protein is gaining popularity due to increased demand for plant-based protein across the world. Potato protein is increasingly been used in baked goods, owing to its excellent gelling, foaming, and emulsifying properties. The plant-based food revolution is propelled by growing cohort of vegetarian and alternative protein solutions.

Demand for plant-based food is rising rapidly, powered by increasing consumer enthusiasm for health, sustainability, and animal welfare, and putting increased emphasis on a plant-centric diet. Rise in vegan population has increased demand for meat alternatives, dairy-free products, and eggless products. Potato protein, being a plant-based protein, works wonders as a substitute for meat products, which is projected to increase sales in the potato protein market across demographics. As per PMR, the global potato protein market is projected to expand at a rate of 7%, and reach a value of US$ 300 Mn by 2030.
