Key Market Trends

Largest Segment By End User : Food and Beverages

F&B remained the largest consumer of rice protein, among other end-user segments. The share was majorly influenced by meat and meat alternatives that accounted for 82.82% of the rice protein volume consumed in 2020. Rice protein, mainly in the isolates form, has an ability to match meat protein content, which is driving its demand in the segment. On the other hand, supplements remained the second-largest application. Both the F&B and supplements sectors were largely benefitted from the introduction of organic and clean label claims.
The sports and performance nutrition sub-segment drove the segment in the studied period and also projected to register the fastest CAGR of 4.35% during the forecast period. Globally, the total number of health and fitness clubs grew by 12% between 2014 and 2019. The personal care and cosmetics segment is projected to register the fastest CAGR of 4.51% during the forecast period.

Largest Region : Asia-Pacific

Asia-Pacific is the leading market for rice protein globally. Brown rice protein, in particular, has specific peptides that help people lose weight more effectively than white rice protein or soy protein. Thus, the regional market is seeing increased demand for organically-sourced brown rice protein over white rice protein.
In India, rice production increased by 8.92%, by volume, between 2016-2020, thus, catering to the surging demand. In North America, the rising animal protein intolerance and protein supplement demand resulted in consumers increasingly adopting vegan dietary diets, thus, boosting the rice protein market. In the United States alone, the percentage of vegans rose from 0.4% in 2017 to almost 3.5% in 2019. Over the forecast period, the Middle East is projected to record the highest CAGR of 3.95%, by value. Global players identifying market opportunities and increasing their supply in the region is driving growth. Moreover, the increasing local production of raw material is further expected to boost the growth. In 2020, Iran produced 2.9 million ton to attain self-sufficiency.
