Innovation and product development have played a pivotal role in market growth. A study conducted by Credit Suisse stated that around 66% consumers, aged 16-40 years across 10 countries, have planned to spend relatively more on plant-based meat and dairy alternatives in the future. Companies are continually developing new plant-based meat products that closely mimic the taste, texture, and mouthfeel of traditional meat, attracting a broader audience, including flexitarians and meat-eaters looking to reduce their meat intake. The availability of a wide range of plant-based meat products, from burgers and sausages to plant-based chicken and seafood alternatives, further expand the appeal and market growth prospects.


One of the significant constraints in the plant-based meat market is the competition with traditional meat products. While plant-based options have gained popularity, meat remains a staple in many diets, and shifting consumer habits can be slow. Additionally, the relatively higher cost of plant-based meat products, compared to conventional meat, can deter price-sensitive consumers. Regulatory challenges and labeling discrepancies also pose hurdles. Finally, ensuring a consistent and authentic meat-like taste and texture in plant-based alternatives remains a constant challenge for manufacturers.
