The Essentials

Rapid growth in demand for plant and animal protein has been the standout trend in recent years. Far from being derailed by the coronavirus pandemic, interest in plant proteins in food has intensified.

This report focuses on speciality proteins – proteins that are higher in protein content, scarcer in supply and more valuable than the commodity proteins. Covering each of the main speciality plant proteins – soy proteins, pea protein, vital wheat gluten, potato proteins, the key animal proteins – fishmeal and dairy protein, as well as novel proteins (insect and lab meat) – the report provides:

  • Market forecasts for each protein
  • Market forecasts by the main end use categories – food, aquafeed, livestock and pet food.
  • The outlook for protein prices

We evaluate and forecast the speciality protein market to 2035 and the implications for individual proteins.
