Global Pea Protein Market Overview

Pea Protein Market Size is anticipated to reach USD 3.1 Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 12.1% during 2022-2030. Pea protein is derived from green and yellow peas and is found in a variety of protein supplements and cuisines. Pea protein consists of all of the amino acids that the body needs to function properly. It helps to increase blood circulation and calcium absorption, as also weight management, metabolism, muscular maintenance, and blood sugar regulation. Pea protein is milk protein and vegan, making it suitable for anyone with dairy and egg allergies or sensitivities. As a result, vegetarians and vegans prefer pea protein supplements to dairy protein supplements such as casein, eggs, whey proteins, and meat.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the end-users of the pea protein market, leading to a reduction in the demand for these products. The enforcement of lockdowns in global marketplaces in 2020 initially had a severe impact on the business of many large-scale food and beverage merchants. Sales were down for a brief period. However, as the market for online food and grocery purchases grew in the mid-2020s, these sales swiftly recovered. Because they were still under lockdown, they put a greater emphasis on eating healthful and nutritious foods. Furthermore, governments in many worldwide regions took steps to maintain food security in their particular countries and regions, which kept the food sector industries afloat.

Market Dynamics

The expanding popularity of plant-based products, increased health consciousness, and many health benefits are driving the food industry. The market's growth is expected to be hampered by the Futility cost of raw materials and formulation issues in pea protein products. Then increased emphasis on R&D of improved pea protein extracts and products will create a lot of opportunities for the market in the future.


  • The rising popularity of plant-based products

Various food products such as beef patties and sausages are being substituted with plant-based/plant-infused meat products as a result of increased consumer health consciousness, which is predicted to raise demand for pea proteins. During the forecast period, the increase in the vegan and flexitarian population is expected to drive the growth of the plant-based protein market. The Vegan Trademark is registered in major countries worldwide, with over half of all products registered coming from companies based outside of the UK. Various food joints such as Burger King, Nestie New Look, and Alpro had launched a wide range of plant-based food products option. As a result, pea protein has recently been gaining a lot of interest from consumers as an alternative protein source.


  • Futility cost of raw material

Pea production was hampered in France, where the crops were severely damaged during harvest due to the wet season. The sector is struggling with the effects of a pea scarcity as worldwide demand for peas continues to rise, with numerous new plant-based food products entering the market in various forms. The huge increase in prices is expected to inevitably result in costs being passed on to customers. As a result of the uncertain supply of raw materials and growing prices, the market faces growth constraints.


  • Increased emphasis on R&D of improved pea protein extracts and products 

From the peas cultivated in the field to the technology for extracting the protein, food tech businesses optimize the ingredient at every stage of production in the hopes of appealing to plant-based meat makers. Many consumers consider maximum protein content to be a major element when selecting a product; as a result, corporations are attempting to increase the number of proteins extracted from raw materials to include as many as possible in their final goods. The corporations are concentrating their efforts on two essential characteristics: nutritional density and flavor.

Segment Overview

By Type

Based on type, the global pea protein market has been divided into concentrate, isolate, and textured. The global market for pea protein is dominated by the isolated pea protein segment. With the increased knowledge of the benefits connected with pea protein isolates and their high protein content, their use has been steadily expanding in the global market.

By Source

Based on source, the global pea protein market has been divided into yellow spit pea, chickpea, and lentils. Yellow split peas dominate the global pea protein market as the most preferred pea source by product manufacturers.
