Plant Proteins Poised to Take Third of Market by 2054

With the growing interest in plant-based eating, the number
of delicious vegan meat alternatives on the market continues to rise.
Marketwired
reports, “Growth of alternative protein sources is poised to accelerate,
potentially claiming up to a third of the protein market by 2054, profoundly
affecting agriculture, food technology, and end products, according to
Lux Research.
“Consumer preference, concerns over the planet’s
ability to produce sufficient meat, impact of livestock agriculture on the
environment, and mounting scientific advances are driving the changing protein
demand,” said Camilla Stice, Lux research analyst.
And the demand is indeed changing. In fact, earlier this
month,
Main

highlighted a decrease in American beef consumption as well as a
growing market for vegetarian options at chains like Chipotle and White Castle,
with millennials at the forefront of this increasing demand.
In addition, private investors are putting millions into
food startups like
Beyond Meat and Hampton Creek Foods.
As the popularity of vegan foods grows, more and more
delicious options
are
hitting store shelves
all the time. But with the amazing variety of
products
already on
the market
, there’s never been a better time to ditch meat.
