The global plant-based food market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.9% from 2020 to 2027 to reach $74.2 billion by 2027.
Plant-based products are now a key driver of growth for food companies and retailers, outpacing overall food growth by more than five times. In early March, before COVID even set in, SPINS reported that grocery sales of plant-based foods that directly replaced animal products grew 29% in the past two years to $5 billion. Dollar sales of plant-based foods grew 11% in the past year. This is compared to total U.S. retail food dollar sales, which grew just 2% over the past year and 4% over the past two years. This is record growth even before the unprecedented boom in demand we experienced once stay-at-home orders were issued.
As we do more work to understand who this plant-based consumer is, it’s becoming clear that category growth is not largely driven by consumers who follow a strictly vegan diet; rather, it’s a result of flexitarians entering the category and replacing meals and foods here and there with plant-based alternatives. Between health, taste, environment and animal welfare, flexitarians are seeking out plant-based for various reasons, but health tops all. We know, now more than ever, many consumers are looking to incorporate more vegan options in their diets and are turning to plant-based to improve overall health in the age of COVID. We’ve also seen, and tasted, the evolution of the plant-based experience. There’s more variety than ever before and the taste of a lot of these products has really improved, thus winning over and bringing new consumers into the fold.

The consumer awareness, regarding the labelling of allergen-free and dairy-free products claims, is driving the market for free-from food products. Companies are coming up with innovative products, which meet allergen-free requirement and provide nutritional benefits.
