Drivers: Growing adoption of vegan as well as meat-free lifestyles

According to the Food Revolution Organization survey in 2018, 50% of respondents supported the slaughterhouse ban. Furthermore, respondents confessed that they are uncomfortable with the ways the animals are treated in the food industry; therefore, consumers are shifting toward animal-free products. To fulfill the requirements of vegan consumers, manufacturers introduce various plant-based products in the market, which incorporate animal-free ingredients from various sources such as plants and microbes, thereby boosting the precision fermentation market. In major countries like the US and UK, a substantial increase in the population adopting vegan and meat-free lifestyles has been seen. Also, in 2018, it has been observed that the number of vegans in the US increased by 600% in the last three years as per the Food Revolution Organization.

Opportunities: Development of novel protein production systems

Identifying novel techniques for generating protein through targeted R&D and infrastructure investments will remain critical in capturing value, optimizing resources, and developing precision fermentation competitive advantages. Many innovative protein production systems are being scaled up and commercialized to develop animal-free meat and microalgae and utilize new and uncommon feedstocks such as CO2. These novel production systems are expected to gain importance as traditional food systems.
