The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had a positive influence on the meat substitutes market growth. An increasing number of animal-borne diseases, including coronavirus, has increased the substitutes demand for plant-based meats among consumers, which in turn has shifted consumers towards meat substitutes. Furthermore, due to lockdowns and trade restrictions, major plants stopped their operation due to factory closure, which decreased the supply of flesh. Thus, due to a shortage in supply, consumers shifted their focus on meat substitutes, driving the industry demand.

Insight by Product

The frozen food segment dominated the global market in 2021 and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. Increasing shelf life along with nutritional values are some factors expected to be responsible for the growth. Furthermore, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has led consumers and vendors to stock more products due to a shortage of supply which has fueled the demand for frozen food, contributing to industry growth.

Insight by Type

The demand for the tofu-based meat substitutes segment is expected to be high during the forecast period. The main reason for tofu-based products' increasing popularity is their use as a protein-rich supply and vegan substitutes to animal foods. Tofu is being used to manufacture a wide range of meals, including hot dogs, burgers, seasonings, ice cream, smoothies, and sweets. The increasing customer desire for high-quality products is expected to substantially influence the natural tofu demand.

Tempeh is becoming more popular in both advanced and developing nations due to the numerous health benefits it provides, including the capacity to construct a greater immune structure, reduce carbohydrates, lower cholesterol levels, increase antibodies, regulate appetite, lower cholesterol levels, and improve muscle growth, among others.

Insight by Form

The solid meat substitutes segment is expected to hold the majority of shares over the forecast period due to increased shelf life as compared to liquid. Eating solid meat substitutes is more beneficial for weight management and satiety due to the chewing process. However, the substitutes demand for the liquid form segment is expected to grow considerably over the forecast period owing to its benefits, such as it takes less time to consume as compared to solid form, which in turn will be a more effective addition to the diet.

Insight by Distribution Channel

The supermarket distribution channel is expected to grow at a significant pace over the forecast period due to easy availability with various substitutes to choose from. Increased discounts and promotional offers are expected to increase the substitutes demand for the segment. Nevertheless, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many consumers have shifted to online shopping due to the fear of virus transmission. Furthermore, increasing busy schedules of consumers along with convenient home delivery services provided by online merchants are expected to increase the online sale segment over the projected period.

Geographic Overview

North America dominated the global market in 2021 and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period due to the increasing shift in the vegan population and rising cases of animal-based diseases. Furthermore, increasing awareness regarding animal welfare coupled with a growing health-conscious population are expected to follow the trend.

Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a considerable pace over the forecast period due to increasing knowledge of plant-based proteins. Moreover, increasing urbanization and growing income levels are expected to boost the meat substitutes market over the forecast period.
