Report Outlook

The global sacha inchi protein market was valued at USD 105.42 million in 2022 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period.

Sacha inchi is one of the primary sources of fatty acids and is like flaxseed oil. It contains some amount of linoleic acid, a form of omega-6 fatty acid, and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 fatty acid that is present in plants. In general, these seeds are toasted by consumers before eating. The oils from the seeds can also be extracted and added to food products or used in cooking to enhance the nutritional value of food. Researchers are working on increasing production of Sacha Inchi plants to reduce supply chain disruptions in the market and fuel demand for the product in the future.

  • For instance, in 2023, the study published in IOP Science focused on increasing and promoting the growth and production of the Sacha inchi plant. The soil medium treated with 99.92 g of biochar and 2.47 g of NPK fertilizer was found to be efficient

Moreover, Sacha Inchi, one of the best vegan protein sources available in plant protein supplements, is made up of 93.6% protein and contains all essential amino acids, making it a rich source of protein. The rise in health and wellness trends among the population is driven by COVID-19, which stimulates the demand for nutritional products like Sacha Inchi protein to improve body functioning and infection resistance.

However, lack of awareness about this product is impeding demand from consumers, as they are more familiar with traditional proteins like lentils, nuts, almonds, and others. Taste and texture of protein seeds are becoming the primary factors considered by consumers before purchase, hampering the demand for Sacha Inchi protein due to the availability of proteins with similar nutritional value and significant flavor, which is more appealing to children.

Growth Drivers

  • Researchers are revealing the potential applications of Sacha inchi protein, fuelling its use in various medical formulations.

Sacha inchi protein is widely consumed by people due to its nutritional profile, which is primarily driven by its antioxidants and fatty acids. According to the study published in PubMed Central, sacha inchi oil appears to have positive effects on the lipid profile of people with dyslipidemia. This signifies that sacha inchi protein has the potential to raise HDL cholesterol and lower total cholesterol when consumed orally. However, their effectiveness and safety should be assessed in randomized clinical trials. Furthermore, rising research activities are increasing demand for Sacha inchi proteins as study findings reveal new applications for the product. For instance, a study published in Rajamangala University of Technology Phra Nakhon indicates that sacha inchi has the potential to be used as an alternative to plant-based milk. Ongoing research activities are enhancing the demand for Sacha inchi protein throughout the study period.

 Regional Insights

  • Asia Pacific region witnessed the global market in 2022

The Asia Pacific region registered the largest share in the global market in 2022 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. Rising concern for healthy food driven by growing health and wellness trends in the region is fueling the demand for dietary supplements to assist in the growth and function of the body, which in turn fuels the demand for Sacha Inchi protein due to its higher nutritional content. In today's fast-paced world, it can be difficult to meet all nutritional needs solely through diet.

As a result, there is an increase in demand for wellness supplements, which offer a practical way to fill nutritional gaps and boost general health. A study found that less than 50% of the necessary nutrients are consumed by pregnant women, and 80% of Indians are micronutrient deficient. About 37% of Indians consume supplements, and 23% of urban dwellers said they would benefit from professional advice in choosing the right ones. This demonstrates the significance and need for dietary supplements, as there will be a higher demand from this region, fueling the need for Sacha Inchi protein in the coming years.

The Europe region is projected to have the fastest growth with a healthy rate during the study period, owing to the growing imports of Sacha Inchi protein in the region.
