Key points to remember

  • The global insect protein market is expected to increase in sales in the future owing to the rising Health care and environmental concerns regarding the consumption of traditional sources of animal protein. The rapid acceptance of advanced technology by manufacturers and consumers is responsible for the expansion of the market.
  • The boom in the insect protein market is noticed due to its increasing use in the food and beverage industrydue to a growing need for protein alternatives among food and beverage manufacturers to meet growing consumer demand.
  • Due to high population growth and growing concerns about environmental sustainability, the widespread consumption of animal products such as meat, eggs and milk continues to increase. With the availability of high protein content, minerals, beneficial fats and vitamins, approximately 2,000 species of insects are already consumed as part of the regular diet by humans and pets around the world. .
  • Food manufacturers are moving towards entering the insect protein market by developing a variety of insect-based snacks such as whey protein, protein bars, cookies, cricket pasta with mealworms, honey caterpillar croquettes, mixed insect bites and insect-based chocolates.
  • The increasing expansion of the insect protein market is believed to be due to the belief in traditional animal protein sources. Furthermore, the growth drivers for the edible insect protein industry are cost advantages, production efficiency, and nutritional value provided by insects.
  • Beetles are considered highly nutritious as they make up more than a quarter of the market, followed by caterpillars, which have a remarkable double-digit growth rate of over 10.2%.
  • Double-digit CAGRs are also represented by insects like grasshoppers, crickets and locusts considered to be the most profitable insect varieties. Researchers are actively using locusts and grasshoppers to create baby food and animal feed for chickens and fish. It will help manufacturers expand their product portfolio and gain a competitive edge as early adopters.

Competitive landscape

Manufacturers are rapidly developing new and innovative ways to use insect proteins to help those who are malnourished. The shortage of nutritional resources in MEA countries, including Kenya, is being compensated for and researchers are developing insect protein powder-based foods.

Growing global awareness of the negative consequences of animal husbandry is forcing companies to look for other alternatives. Insects contain many important fatty acids, amino acids, minerals and vitamins. Due to the medical and production benefits, the widespread acceptance of insect protein among manufacturers and customers is expected to increase its growth.

More insights into the insect protein market

Europe and North America are expected to account for the largest market share of more than three-fifths of the global insect protein market. The surge in the insect protein market is driven by growing consumer awareness of the negative environmental effects of animal agriculture. In these industrialized regions, insect proteins present a viable alternative to the discerning consumer sector.

Several Food and Agricultural Organizations (FAOs) have begun to publicize edible insects as acceptable food options for humans, which in turn has led to renewed interest in edible insects.

With the help of government funding and fruitful research efforts, the Korean edible insect market has witnessed impeccable growth over the forecast period. Additionally, the skyrocketing accessibility of edible insects is to develop insect-based ingredients instead of final food products showing their original appearance.
