Plant-based Snacks Market Trends



  • Rising movement towards a healthy lifestyle is the major factor driving this market’s growth


This industry is expanding mostly as a result of people's increased preference for healthier lifestyles. A vegan is not the same as a vegetarian. Fish, poultry, and other animal items are not eaten by vegetarians. Vegans are stricter forms of vegetarians who also forgo dairy, eggs, and any other foods containing animal products. Veganism is considered to be the strictest form of vegetarianism. Veganism is now referred to by The Vegan Society as a way of life that makes every attempt to avoid harming or exploiting animals. Being taken advantage of for profit or for any other motive is included. As a result, a vegan diet abstains from consuming dairy, eggs, and other items derived from animals. Projections indicate that the industry will grow significantly as a result of the growing veganism trend among athletes and celebrities throughout the world. Many groups claimed that there were more vegans in the world than ever before. Thus, driving market CAGR.


For instance, according to a survey conducted by the Vegan Society and Vegan Living magazine, the number of vegans in the United Kingdom has climbed by over 360%. There are currently roughly 850,000 vegans in Canada, up 250% from the previous year. Thus, it led to expansion of the plant-based snacks market revenue.
