Roasted Soybean Market to Reach US$ 2.5 Bn by 2030; Supply Chain Issues and Reduced Demand Witnessed Due to Covid-19 Pandemic


  • Published On : Apr 17, 2020

The global roasted soybean market has been witnessing steady growth since the past few years, and this growth trend is projected to continue throughout the forecast period of 2020-2030. The global roasted soybean market is estimated to register a CAGR of 6% throughout the forecast period.

Roasted soybeans include high levels of calcium, which supports bone health, and potassium is perfect for those watching their heart health. They also are a great source of magnesium, which helps promote a healthy heart, muscles, immune system, and nerve function. Thus, roasted soybeans are becoming popular among consumers as well as manufacturers in the food and feed industry. Apart from retail sales, roasted soybeans are becoming a healthy and nutritional choice of bakery, snacks, and convenience food manufacturers. 

As the effects of COVID-19 are being felt around the world, food & beverage companies are facing significantly reduced demand and numerous supply chain disruption challenges. Roasted soybean is mostly marketed and distributed through the retail sector, and this sector has been badly disrupted due to COVID-19 pandemic. Also, international trade has been suspended, due to which, there has been a negative impact on the trade and supply of agriculture commodities. These factors are expected to hamper the growth of the global roasted soybean market for the next couple of years at least.
