The feed segment by application in soy protein ingredients market is relatively small in comparison to the food segment by application
Soy protein ingredient-based feed is relatively less commercialized than soy protein ingredient-based food in the market. This is because the demand for soy-based products for human consumption is high. The animal end-user market is at a very nascent stage, and the importance of soy-protein ingredients based feed has just started gaining momentum in the market, which already has a big dominant presence of food products in applications such as bakery & confectionery, meat alternatives, dairy alternatives, infant nutrition etc. However, as the awareness in the animal feed segment is on the rise, the demand for the segment is gradually rising, further pushing the players to manufacture products to cater to the interests of the gradually rising market.
North America is estimated to dominate the soy protein ingredients market with a value of USD 2,932.1 Million in 2022.
The ethical limitations and consumer awareness regarding personal and environmental health have contributed greatly to the mass shifting of people toward adopting veganism and flexitarian diets.
