What is the Insect Protein Market? What is the insect protein market size?

Insect proteins are high-quality raw materials obtained from insects that can be used as a component used as food for pets, animals or fish. They are new sources of food and animal feed and strive to escape conventional protein sources like soy and meat. Insect proteins are obtained from edible insects depending on the species supplied; several insects are recommended in their diet.

The world’s population is expected to reach 9 billion people by 2050. But already, the expanded population will occupy much of the earth, exempting only a tiny percentage of agriculture to provide food for human consumption and animal. This will force farmers to force themselves to produce animal feed on the scarce land available. As a protein source, insects are sustainable and environmentally friendly as they have a lower ecological footprint than other protein sources.
