market synopsis

Insect protein is now seen as a potential solution to world hunger as food demand continues to rise in conjunction with growing populations. Insect protein finds a number of important applications in food and beverage products, animal feed production, personal care products and cosmetics. Additionally, amid growing concerns about global food shortages, insects are being touted as the best source of animal feed and human sustenance in various western economies.

Today’s consumers are very focused on what ingredients are part of the food product they buy, how it was made and where it came from. They are more than willing to spend considerable sums of money on high-quality natural products. The increasing preference for functional foods, an increasing number of fitness and sports enthusiasts, and the popularity of sustainable and healthy food options will increase the size of the insect protein industry.

Market leader:

The increase in insect farming methods amid lower investment needs and the decline in seafood due to fishing bans in several countries have boosted the demand for insect protein. These invertebrates are experiencing tremendous demand due to their affordability, rich nutrient content and minimal cost associated with keeping them, resulting in significant global market growth.

Governments in all countries are striving to raise awareness of the benefits of insect protein among consumers, especially in emerging markets like India and China, which are expected to benefit the global market in the coming years. Insects require less food and care compared to other animals and have 12 times the protein content compared to other sources. These factors are working to drive demand for insects among a growing number of consumers. In several countries, insects are considered the best source to combat malnutrition because they are easily digested. Insects are immune to numerous diseases and have a range of micronutrients such as fatty acids, zinc, magnesium and iron that should continue to drive market demand for years to come.

From a competitive perspective, the global market offers low barriers to entry due to the lack of strict regulations and low manufacturing costs. The market growth is driven by the frequent research and development activities of large companies.

Against this background, the evolving food trends and the global expansion of urban populations with a high acceptance of insect ingredients will bring lucrative opportunities to the companies.
