Global Soy Foods Market - 2021-2028

Market Overview

Soybean, or soya bean is a legume widely known for its edible nature and nutrient rich properties and is considered as the largest grown legume in the world. Beyond utilization of soybean meal for animal feed application, soybean is used as staple food source in several parts of the world. Consumption of soy-based food products such as Tofu and Tempeh are increasing owing to the rising interest towards sustainable production practices and demand for meat substitutes.

The global soy foods market valued USD XX billion in 2020 and is estimated to reach USD XX billion by 2028, at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period.

Market Dynamics

The utilization of soy-based foods has been rapidly increasing across the globe owing to the rising awareness about its potential health benefits. According to The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the global production of soybean reached 362.8 million metric tons in 2020. Soy is considered as an effective alternative to dairy foods owing to its rich protein and low cholesterol content. The increasing lactose-intolerant population is driving the growth of soy-based food products such as soy yogurt, soy ice cream, and soy sauce globally. Approximately 65% of the human population has a reduced ability to digest lactose after infancy. Soy is also used as a ‘meat analog’. Furthermore, rising veganism is likely to provide immense growth potential for the market over the forecast period. According to The Vegan Society, the vegan population in U.K. increased from 150,000 in 2014 to 1.1 million in 2020. However, the GM issues associated with soy beans is the primary factor hindering the growth of soy foods market.
