Outlook for Global Protein Demand

​The rapid growth in demand for plant and animal protein globally is an emerging trend and raises the question, are we entering a “protein decade”? What will it mean for different proteins and end-use sectors going forward?

This new report answers key questions such as:

  • How will protein demand evolve for the animal feed, food and pet food sectors around the world?
  • How will demand for different types of proteins change out to 2025?

Report in Detail

It forecasts protein demand to 2025 for each of the proteins, end uses and regions/countries listed below. Data and analysis is also presented on the nutritional/functional profiles of proteins, industry structure, capacity, production and prices.


  • Animal proteins – fishmeal, processed animal proteins and dairy proteins
  • Plant proteins – soy proteins, corn gluten meal, vital wheat gluten, pea protein and potato protein
  • Novel proteins – single-cell proteins, rice protein, algae-based proteins and insect proteins

End uses

  • Livestock feed – beef and dairy
  • Poultry feed
  • Swine feed
  • Young animal feed & milk replacement
  • Aquaculture – by major species
  • Pet food
  • Bio-industrial
  • Human food – sports & nutrition, functional foods, baking & confectionery, meat & meat processing, dairy products

Regions (key countries)

  • NAFTA (USA, Canada, Mexico)
  • Central America
  • South America (Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru)
  • EU/Western Europe (Norway, Denmark, Netherlands)
