Market Key Drivers

The rising number of vegans and a growing demand for plant-based proteins are expected to drive growth in the European meat alternatives market.

Growing Number of Vegans in Europe Drives the Market Growth

The market is rising due to a growth in the number of vegans in Europe as well as the nutritional and health benefits of meat substitutes. The high nutritional value of meat alternatives has a considerable influence on how people purchase complete items. Sales of high-protein foods are expected to stay stable during the forecast period. Soy-based meat alternatives like tofu and tempeh are high in protein, vitamins, minerals, and cholesterol.

Consumers with heart and diabetic diseases are encouraged to begin drinking meat-free products since frequent intake offers various health benefits. Before purchasing a product, people carefully examine the ingredients and compare the nutritional value of meat replacements to that of regular meat products.

According to a survey done on behalf of the Good Food Institute Europe (GFI), more than half of European consumers have reduced their consumption of conventional meat, with a considerable share switching to plant-based alternatives.

Plant-Based Proteins are Becoming More Popular

Since the majority of Europeans depend on meat products to achieve their daily protein requirements, the demand for meat substitutes has surged over the last 10 years. While animal proteins provide the body with important amino acids, they also include significant quantities of cholesterol, which has been associated with a variety of major health problems.

It became the key driver of the surge in demand for plant-based protein meals, particularly in industrialized countries such as the United Kingdom, Germany, and France. Vegans are on the increase in various countries, including the United Kingdom.
