Rising demand for organic products and shift toward a sustainable lifestyle are significant factors that are expected to increase demand for alternative protein. Increasing awareness of health risks associated with meat consumption and growing activism against animal cruelty have led to rising adoption of vegan products as an alternative source of protein content. According to World Health Organization (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), intake of red meat is carcinogenic to humans. These conclusions had been based on the proof for colorectal cancer. Data showed a positive correlation between processed meat consumption and stomach and pancreatic cancer. Meat processing includes curing of the meat, which can result in the formation of cancer-causing (carcinogenic) chemical substances such as N-nitroso compounds (NOC) and Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAH).

Top competitors of the Alternative Proteins Market profiled in the report include:

Kerry Inc., DuPont de Nemours Inc., Corbion NV, Glanbia PLC, Tate & Lyle PLC, The Archer Daniels Midland Company, Ingredion Incorporated, Cargill Incorporated among others.

Meat also contains heme iron, which can facilitate the production of carcinogenic NOCs. In addition, cooking meat in high-temperature can produce carcinogenic chemicals, such as heterocyclic aromatic amines (HAA) and PAHs. This has led to rising demand for alternative forms of plant-based protein, which is expected to boost market revenue growth. Additionally, increasing demand for organic products and shift toward a sustainable lifestyle are further expected to drive market revenue growth. This is expected to increase demand for alternative protein products and drive market revenue growth.

However, health issues associated with consumption and plant-based protein is a restraining factor hindering market revenue growth. In addition, the lack of standard regulation on edible insects is a major factor restraining alternative protein market growth.
