Alternative proteins refer to alternatives to animal protein that are sourced from plants or via the use of food technology and provide a balanced nutritive diet for animals. They are less harmful to the environment, do not involve intensive animal farming, and result in tasty, nutritious food and low carbon emissions. On account of its many beneficial properties, such as the potential ability to strengthen the immune system in animals and sustainable production, alternative protein has witnessed an upsurge in demand across the globe. Growing consumer preference for vegan food products and plant-based diets are likely to propel alternative protein market growth over the review timeline.

Insect-based proteins are used increasingly in food applications because of their sustainability benefits. They require minimal resources in terms of feed, land, and water, as well as having nutritional benefits, and are increasingly utilized in snacks in countries like Korea, Japan, and China, which is expected to foster product outlook. Supported by these factors, the insect-based source alternative protein market is slated to surpass a valuation of $12.45 billion by 2028.

Meanwhile, the plant-based protein market exceeded $44.5 billion in revenue in 2021 and is estimated to depict over 18% CAGR through the forecast period. The prominent sustainability of plant-sourced proteins, coupled with various health benefits of these proteins, is speculated to drive segmental growth in the upcoming years.
