The global market for rice protein surpassed US$ 108 million in 2018, and it is expected to envisage nearly 7% y-o-y in 2019, according to a recent study published by Fact.MR. The study opines that the growth of the rice protein market is indicative of a growing consumer demographic looking for a meat-free and active lifestyle. Fact.MR attributes the recent upsurge in demand for rice protein to a palpable shift in consumer preference for non-allergenic and vegetable-derived substitutes for traditional animal-based proteins.
The study finds that the demand for rice protein is also being buoyed by the growing veganism trend.

Increasing health concerns with high prevalence of lifestyle diseases, such as obesity, will continue to boost adoption of rice protein in the food & beverage industry, opines Fact.MR.
