Inert Cancer Fighting Properties Creating New Growth Avenues; Lack of Consumer Awareness Still a Stumbling Block for Pea Fiber Producers

The world is now awakening to the amazing health benefits of pea fiber, with food and beverages manufacturers looking to leverage its potential in premium products. A recent study conducted by Fact.MR on pea fiber market projects an upward trajectory at a CAGR of 8% during the forecast period (2019 - 2029), on the back of this upswing in interest among end-use industries.

Pea fiber consists of high proportion of various phytonutrients. Extensive research related to cancer has revealed that coumestrol, a polyphenol found in pea fiber can significantly help lower risk of stomach cancer. Research suggests that minimum daily consumption of 2 milligrams of coumestrol can lower risk of gastric cancer. Around 10 milligrams of coumestrol can be extracted from a cup of green peas. Concentration is significantly higher in pea fiber, making it a food additive of choice for myriad applications, especially in dietary supplements. Other research suggests that including 15 grams of yellow pea fiber in the daily diet can help reduce body fat in obese individuals. Moreover, pea fiber is a clean label, non-GMO, and 100% natural ingredient which further increases its adoption across industries, spearheaded by the food industry.

Emerging regions such as East Asia and South Asia are likely to face massive demand for pea fiber owing to changing lifestyle and dietary pattern of people. Increasing elderly population in the region also gives rise to food products enriched with high fiber content to curb dietary diseases, which is projected to further enhance the pea fiber market.

The Race for Pea Fiber Market Share Intensifies with the Trend of Veganism

Leading players operating in vegan food industry are introducing numerous plant-based foods in their product portfolio. With the dietary fiber intake from food poised at 25 to 30 grams daily, this number is expected to increase in the forecast period, which will boost the market of pea fiber moderately.

Demand for pea fiber in animal nutrition products is increasing at a rapid pace. The global demand for animal feed is expected to cross US$ 350 billion by the end of 2029. The rising demand of milk and meat products has created lucrative opportunities for the animal feed market. The growth in animal feed market is expected to impact the pea fiber market to a moderate degree.

Europe and North America Collectively Account for Three Fourths Share of Global Yield for Dry Peas

The most prevalent grain after chickpeas and dry beans is dry peas. North America accounts for a major share in the global dry peas production, with 5.3 million tons followed by Europe with 4.4 million tons. Asia accounts for approximately 3.3 million tons and MEA with almost 1 million tons. The global dry peas production has been increasing drastically from 16.1 million tons in 2016 to 17.7 million tons in 2017. In 2017 to 2018, per capita availability of dry peas is expected to be nearly 1.2 kg. The sufficient availability of raw material for pea fiber is likely to propel the market growth in the forecast period.

The global pea production is rising with a growth rate of nearly 7.5% annually. In 2017 nearly 51,018,989 tons of pea was produced in the global market, out of which more than 18% pea is utilized to obtain co-products such as starch protein and fiber. The massive production of pea is expected to augment the pea fiber market in the terms of raw material availability.

Pricing Pressure Weighs Heavy on Players in Developing Regions in the Pea Fiber Market

As can be seen in the global pea fiber pricing analysis below, prices for inner pea fiber will skyrocket in emerging regions such as MEA on the back of underdeveloped production technologies for inner pea extraction and high overheads incurred during production. Till such time production technology is more streamlined in developing regions, pea fiber will have a lower penetrative reach here.  With more competitive pricing being witnessed in developed regions such as North America, market leaders will race to capture large chunks of the revenue share. To counter declining consumer traffic towards pea fiber in emerging regions due to high cost, industry leaders should focus on technologically advanced yet affordable extraction processes.

A Small Plant, Big on Protein to Provide Texture and Stability to Meat Products

Various studies have shown that pea fiber can replace 50% to 100% of the protein source in a food product while enhancing juiciness. This enables poultry and meat products to retain its shape after the process of frying or baking. This shape retaining factor further accentuates the water binding property of the pea fiber. A & B Ingredients offer a versatile product called ‘Swelite’, which can reduce cooking losses while enhancing the stability of poultry and meat products. Gil Bakal (Managing director of A & B Ingredient) stated that Swelite controls cooking losses and keep products in their original forms. Besides, Swelite acts as a meat extender, thus, increasing the product economy with the same yield and texture. The demand for meat extenders is growing since the last two decades. This demand is anticipated to heavily influence the growth of the pea fiber market.

Affordable Alternatives to Hinder Market Growth

The high price of pea fiber as compared to other alternatives in their natural form such as lentils, kidney beans, and chickpeas are expected to hamper market growth, primarily in Asian countries. The fiber content of lentils, kidney beans, and chickpeas are nearly 1.2% lesser than that of pea fiber. However, many manufacturers are choosing alternative products at a lower cost. The low cost of pea is profoundly influencing market growth in Asian countries. Increasing adoption of quinoa, broccoli, chickpeas, and lentil fibers is hampering the market growth of pea fiber significantly. Moreover, health factors associated with pea fiber are nearly the same as that of other alternatives. Hence, manufacturers prefer to choose other alternatives rather than pea fiber. However, demand for Pea Fiber in supplements is expected to show significant growth, as demand for fiber-dense additives is rising expressively.

Prominent Manufacturers Are Focused on Backward Integration and Pelletization as a Unique Packaging Trend

The global pea fiber market is consolidated in nature and significant share in the pea fiber market is acquired by top players such as Roquette Freres SA, Emsland Group, Puris Proteins, LLC, Cosucra and Quadra Chemicals. Since their establishment, these players have increased their revenue and market presence rigorously and are focused on increasing their production capacity to fulfill global demand. Top manufacturers operating in the pea fiber market are adopting new drying and extraction processes to improve their production capacity. Recently, Roquette Frères has developed a versatile production method that will extract starch, protein and fiber at the same time. Leading companies such as Puris have received significant investments from food giant Cargill to increase their production capacity of pea co-products.   

The demand for pea fiber in animal food has increased drastically over the last few years. For fulfilling this, manufacturers are adopting Pelletization of peas to help ease out transportation and packaging. For instance, Vestkorn Milling AS has been providing pea fiber in pellets. The pea fiber pellet reduces handling cost and paves the way for cheaper transportation; this technique of pelletization enhances product safety, causes less dust and is easier to handle.
