Soy was estimated to account for the largest market share in the plant-based meat market

Based on the source, the soy segment dominates the market. Soy serves as an alternative to meat sources, such as pork, beef, and chicken, due to its high protein content. Moreover, soy production is rising in regions such as South America due to high demand from European and North American countries. It is due to the rise in consumption of soy-based foods in Western countries due to the adoption of vegetarian diets and being cholesterol-free as against animal-based proteins.

Beef-related plant-based products, such as meat-free beef pieces, no-beef burgers, beef watercress, and beefsteak, are made from sources such as soy and wheat. Thus, the popularity of beef-like meat is driving the demand for meat-free beef, which is expected to continue dominating during the forecast period.
