By source, the soy segment is projected to dominate the plant-based meat market during the forecast period.

By source, the plant-based meat market is segmented into soy, wheat, pea, and others (quinoa, oats, beans, and seeds). Soy is widely used as a base ingredient for plant-based pork, beef, and chicken products, owing to its high protein content and meat-like texture. The growing health concerns associated with the consumption of animal protein-sourced foods and adoption of flexitarian and vegetarian diets are expected to drive consumption of soy as a source in the global market. Impossible Foods offers soy-based burgers and is backed by a strong distribution network in the US. In January 2019, the company launched an upgraded version of its burger, which would have 30% less sodium and 40% less saturated fat.

By type, the chicken segment is projected to dominate the plant-based meat market during the forecast period.

Various sausages, nuggets, strips, and burgers have chicken as their major meat ingredient. Chicken flesh and eggs are loaded with animal protein, fats, and cholesterol. On the other hand, the protein content in plant-based meat chicken products is about the same while the other nutrients may vary. Beyond Meat’s (US) plant-based burger includes ingredients such as pea protein and canola oil. Impossible Food’s (US) patties contain soy protein and coconut oil to replicate the taste of chicken.
