Plant-based meat refers to a vegan meat-like alternative that resembles meat products in color, texture, appearance, and flavor. Generally, it is produced by mixing vegetable protein isolates, starch, vegetable extracts, edible oils and various other seasonings. These raw materials are then processed with additives and colorings to achieve a flavor and texture similar to animal meat.

Plant-based meat products help reduce meat consumption, thereby minimizing the risk of cardiovascular disease, lowering blood cholesterol, maintaining calories and increasing protein consumption. Furthermore, the meat-based variant is also considered environmentally sustainable as it helps to reduce the high consumption of meat products. For this reason, plant-based meat products are widely available in restaurants, cafes, fast food outlets, hypermarkets/supermarkets, convenience/specialty stores, and other catering platforms.

The widespread trend of veganism coupled with growing concerns about animal welfare and protection has led to a growing demand for meat alternatives, such as plant-based meat. In addition, growing consumer health concerns along with high prevalence of obesity, diabetes, etc., have also increased the demand for the products due to its low calorie and low protein content.

Additionally, the shift in consumer inclination from a non-vegetarian diet towards plant-based protein foods as well as the increasing adoption of a flexitarian and vegetarian diet, particularly in North America and Europe, also catalyzed the growth of the market. In several emerging economies, such as India, China, Brazil, Turkey, etc., rapid urbanization coupled with rising living standards of consumers has increased per capita expenditure on premium food products , such as vegan foods.

Apart from this, the introduction of several awareness programs by various animal welfare organizations such as PETA to reduce the excessive slaughter of animals for meat consumption is also propelling the demand for the products. Additionally, due to changing consumer tastes and preferences, several manufacturers are introducing vegan meat products with better aroma, better texture, longer shelf life and high nutritional value.

Moreover, various prominent food companies are entering into strategic partnerships with several vegan meat production start-ups to expand their product portfolios, thus leading to premiumization of products. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of these meat products in several cuisines including Chinese, Thai, Italian, etc. will continue to fuel the growth of the global plant-based meat market in the coming years.
