September 2022, Market Research Future has published a Report on the Global Chickpea Protein Ingredients Market


Market Highlights


The Global Chickpea Protein Ingredients Market has witnessed continued growth over the last few years. It is projected to reach USD 1237.2 million by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of 11.20%. Chickpea protein ingredients are available in various forms such as concentrates, isolates, and flour. The availability of alternative plant protein ingredients, such as soy, pea, and legumes, is emerging as a potential challenge for the market players. Soy protein is a widely accepted and used plant protein in various application industries. Peas protein has also gained popularity in recent years, especially in snacks and infant nutrition products. Moreover, soy and pea protein are key components of dietary supplements. These proteins are easy to extract, widely available, and less expensive than chickpea protein, thereby posing challenges to chickpea protein ingredient manufacturers.


North America constituted the largest share of the chickpea protein ingredients market in 2021. The regional market is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period of 2022 to 2030. The US is expected to be a significant country-level market for chickpea protein ingredients in North America. The market in Asia-Pacific is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to the large-scale production of chickpea in the region and rising health concerns among the regional populace.  


The key players are engaging in activities to expand their businesses and to enter into untapped markets, thereby increasing their consumer bases. The international players can strengthen their presence worldwide through acquisitions during the review period. The surge in the demand for plant-based protein ingredients from the food & beverages and dietary supplement industries is fueling the market growth, thereby making it an ideal time for players to launch various forms of chickpea protein ingredients and increase their global market shares.
