The Plant-Based Food market stood at US$ 4,373.0 million in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.19% during the forecast period 2019-2025. The global meat and dairy sector are currently going through an unprecedented level of competition and disruption, driven by the growth of viable plant-based alternatives across many categories. People are reducing or eliminating animal products from their diet for a variety of reasons. Some want to cut back on cholesterol, others may be concerned about animal welfare, and some tend to worry about the effect of animal agriculture on the environment. Whatever the reason may be, consumers globally are shifting to a plant-based food diet. There is a seismic shift occurring in eating habits, creating a significant market opportunity for plant-based foods. Most important, many kinds of research reveal that for consumers, consuming plant-based foods has moved beyond experimentation into a permanent change brought on by health, lifestyle and social factors. Thus, following are market dynamics that discuss the plant-based food product aspects in the market.

Climate change is recognized as a significant public health issue that will impact on food security. One of the major contributors to global warming is the livestock industry, and, relative to plant-based agriculture, meat production has a much higher environmental impact in relation to freshwater use, amount of land required, and waste products generated. Promoting increased consumption of plant-based foods is a recommended strategy to reduce human impact on the environment and is also now recognized as a potential strategy to reduce the high rates of some chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and certain cancers.
