Global insect protein market analysis: trends, growth, forecast

Market Snapshot:

According to Ingenious E-Brain market study for the Global Insect Protein Market is predicted to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 26.42 percent over the projection period of 2022 to 2029. Increased demand for protein-rich products, sustainable raw materials, and their contribution to the circular economy are projected to propel the worldwide insect protein market forward.

Market Overview:

The largest protein source is insects, which are transformed into protein powder. Both humans and animals consume this waste. It is undeniably a good alternative protein source, with a rapid growth of the market over the years, primarily in the feed industry.

Because it has a higher protein content and can be manufactured at a cheap cost, insect protein is an excellent alternative for a range of animal and plant-based proteins. Feed producers are increasingly resorting to insect protein production to fulfil the increasing demands for aquaculture and poultry feed, owing to the continual rise in the price of soymeal and fishmeal.

The demand for food supplies develops in tandem with the world’s population. Insect protein offers a lot of potential for alleviating global food scarcity. Insect protein is utilised in animal feed, food and beverage, cosmetics, and personal care products, among other things. In addition, as the global food crisis worsens, insects are being examined in Western countries as a potential source of human food and animal feed.
