Consumption Analysis of Pea Milk (2016-2020) Vs Outlook (2021-2031)

During the 2016-2020 historical period, pea milk sales surged impressively, expanding at a CAGR of 9% to be valued at US$ 35 Mn. As people become increasingly conscious about animal welfare, consumption of plant-based diets is surging, thus widening expansion prospects.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, consumption accelerated, especially unsweetened pea milk. According to W.H.O, ideally less than 5% of total energy intake should come from free sugars. This is mostly because studies demonstrate that high sugar intake may aggravate chronic inflammatory states in infected patients.

Furthermore, growing lactose intolerance prevalence is prompting consumers to opt for plant-based milk and milk products. Manufacturers are experimenting with various plant-based flavors. Hence, Fact.MR- a market research and competitive intelligence provider forecasts that demand for pea milk is likely to accelerate at a whopping 13% CAGR until 2031.

Increasing Vegan Population Pool Stimulating Pea Milk Uptake?

Growing animal welfare concerns globally are prompting meat eaters and animal products consumers to opt for plant-based and other naturally sourced product lines, which includes consumption of plant based milk.

According to the Vegan Society, just 4% of global domesticated animals live freely, while 96% of them survive under dismal conditions in captivity. Realizing this, consumers are refraining from consuming animal based products, impelling prospects for pea milk.

Furthermore, the society advocates that if the world went completely vegan, it could conserve 8 million human lives by 2050, reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture by 2/3rd and save up to US$ 1.5 trillion in climate change damages.

Frequent Episodes of Lactose Intolerance Feeding Pea Milk Growth?

Over the years, the incidence of lactose intolerance has surged, especially across Europe, North America and Asia. Approximately 65% of the human population has a reduced ability to digest lactose post-infancy. However, the incidence varies across different regions.

For instance, prevalence rate is as high as 70-100% among people of East Asian descent, and as low as 5% amongst people of Northern European descent. Going by these trends, people are substituting dairy products consumption with plant-based products.

Amongst all dairy alternatives, pea milk is acquiring major traction. Pea milk is also a good alternative to consumers who may be averse to other plant-based products such as soy, whey, almond or nuts.

Country-wise Analysis

What are the prospects for Pea Milk in the U.S?

What Supports Increasing Pea Milk Sales across Asia?

This represents a 40% increase in the vegan population. Also, the Vegan Society noted a fourfold increase in the number of vegans.

Based on these aforementioned trends, Fact.MR expects the pea milk market in the U.K to capture a market share of nearly 60% across the 2021-2031 forecast period.
