Soy Segment to grow at the highest CAGR during the Forecast Period

In 2019, the soy segment accounted for a share of over 60% of the global vegan protein market. Soy is the only plant-based protein source that contains all essential amino acids. The rapidly growing vegan population in the UK and Portugal is driving the demand for soy proteins. China, India, Japan, and South Korea are expected to support the growing demand due to the growing health awareness. However, the demand for soy-based products is challenged as several studies indicate that the consumption of soy can increase estrogen and testosterone production. Moreover, the segment is expected to lose its share by 2025 as manufacturers are increasingly introducing soy-free products, which is adversely affecting the demand.

Sports Nutrition Segment to dominate the Vegan Protein Market

The sports nutrition segment dominated with a share of over 70% in 2019. The increasing demand for protein bars, energy drinks, and other dietary supplements among fitness enthusiasts, bodybuilders, and athletes is a major contributor to the market. As plant-based diets are high in carbohydrates, low in fat, and rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, athletes and sportsmen opt for protein bars and energy drinks for enhanced performances. Several prominent athletes such as former world heavyweight champion boxer, David Haye and popular tennis champion, Venus Williams, have reportedly adopted for vegan diets. Other popular athletes, including Kendrick Farris, a weightlifter from Rio Olympics, Patrik Baboumian, an Armenian-German strongman, have opted for vegan diet. Thus, the high adoption of plant-based diets among athletes is driving the vegan protein market.
