Increasing Awareness About the Benefits of Protein-rich Diets & the Rising Demand for Protein-rich Food Products Drive the Soy Protein Market’s Growth

   October 10, 2022

The world protein demand is rising due to the growing population. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), in 2050, the global food demand, particularly protein, will be twice the demand in 2013. When global food security is considered, protein is expected to become a limiting macronutrient, and the world population will require sufficient quantities of protein with adequate quality. The increasingly developed nations are consuming more protein—and all the demographic trends point to demand continuing to rise in the coming years. With many protein sources using lots of land and water and generating lots of greenhouse gases, a new option is needed to meet the demand sustainably.

Furthermore, in recent years, high protein diets and products have made a real impression on nutrition, and re-shaping consumers’ attitudes towards protein in their food intake as adequate nutrition is an important aspect of a healthy lifestyle for all individuals. Studies have shown soy protein-based eating can be a helpful strategy for weight loss as it boosts energy and for type 2 diabetes management. Meanwhile, soy protein-based foods typically contain fiber, which improves laxation and cholesterol-lowering ability. A soy protein-based diet was linked to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and death from any cause in middle-aged adults. Thus, the growing awareness about the benefits of a protein-rich diet is expected to drive the growth of this market in the coming years.

With the increasing world population and welfare, the demand for protein as a food-nutritional component is rising. The high protein trend is gaining traction and will continue to evoke interest in the upcoming years. Consumers have become more aware of protein benefits in supporting an active lifestyle.

Soy proteins can help reduce the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. It is a vital nutrient required for building, maintaining, and repairing tissues, cells, and organs throughout the body, keeping the immune system functioning properly and maintaining heart health. It also plays a vital role in the growth and development of children and aged people. Soy protein also contains many of the same minerals and other beneficial nutrients found in animal proteins, including iron and zinc (although there are some absorption issues to be aware of).

There is a growing awareness of the negative health aspect of eating red meat, with many wishing to either minimize or cut animal protein out of their diet altogether. This leads to a significant increase in soy protein production and consumption worldwide.

Moreover, a protein-rich diet has also alleviated several health concerns. Consumers are aware of the need to incorporate a certain amount of protein into their daily diets due to the increasing health consciousness.

According to the research presented at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) annual meeting in 2015, high protein diets improve blood sugar control in patients with Type 2 diabetes without any adverse effects on kidney function. The study concluded that in diabetic subjects, the 6-week high-protein diet improved glucose metabolism and decreased liver fat independently from the protein source.

Furthermore, the study on metabolic syndrome published in the Journal of Diabetes Investigation found that decreased vegetable protein intake and increased dietary acid load are associated with a higher prevalence of metabolic syndrome in patients with Type 2 diabetes.

According to Meticulous Research®, the soy protein market is expected to reach $14.10 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 9.9% during the forecast period of 2022–2029.
