Higher Dependence on Protein Enriched Food & Beverage Products to Amplify Sales of Rice protein, Says Fact.MR


by Team Fact.MR

There has been a bearish trend in global demand for rice protein with the continuing restrictions on mass meetings and major events due to Covid-19. Nevertheless, consumption of food products infused with protein is high in demand as many media houses actively promote the benefits of protein-infused food to boost one's health. In this regard, rice protein is experiencing high demand. Yet rice protein producers have narrowed down production due to uncertainties in the existing supply chain owing to COVID-19 pandemic. While in the first week there was a 10-15% rise in demand with consumers hoarding protein products, demand for rice protein from end-products manufacturers has been decreasing steadily from the second week onwards.

Consumers are expected to behave more conservatively and cautiously over the coming months, and are expected to become more dependent on rice protein and other protein laced food items. However, the slow supply of products through some stores providing essentials and e-commerce is anticipated to create a demand supply gap. The global rice protein market is anticipated to grow with a CAGR of over 8% and is expected to present absolute dollar opportunity of more than US$ 100 Mn during forecast period

‘Label Centric Marketing’ to Heighten Demand for Rice Protein, Market to Grow at CAGR of over 8.0%

The demand for rice protein has shown substantial growth in recent years and is expected to show dexterous growth during the forecast period. 'Label centric marketing' was the primary strategy of rice protein producers to meet the increasing demand for soy-free proteins based on plants. This in turn has benefitted rice protein manufacturers, who are leveraging labels like ‘Non-GMO’, ‘Organic’, and ‘Vegan’ among others to increase demand. Aversion towards dairy derived proteins has supplemented growth of rice proteins. Owing to this shift in consumer demand towards alternative protein sources and targeted marketing campaigns of rice protein, the rice protein market is proliferating globally.
