For example, statistics released by the Vegan Society reveal that there was a 987% rise in demand for meat-free food items in the UK in 2017, indicating a conscious conversion to plant-based diets, which augurs well for this market.
Growing Prevalence of Diabetes to Spike the Demand for Plant-based Foods
Modern-day work culture and stress, along with pollution, have surged the incidence of chronic diseases, prominent among which is diabetes. The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) estimates that around 463 million people are suffering from diabetes currently and by 2045, this number is projected to spike to 700 million. Furthermore, according to the IDF, diabetes caused 4.2 million deaths and around 374 million people worldwide are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes in the near future.
One of the main reasons for these disturbing numbers is the unhealthy diet regimes followed by people, especially in the urban areas. Acknowledging this fact, many working-age people are steadily adopting plant-based diets. These foods are largely free of chemicals, have little to no sugar, and very low fat & oil content. Such foodstuffs are crucial in keeping blood sugar in check and preventing the birth of any other associated complications.
North America to Lead the Charge; Asia-Pacific to Grow Considerably
Among regions, North America is anticipated to dominate the plant-based snacks market share owing to the rising popularity of veganism in the region. Moreover, growing awareness about fitness and wellness is further propelling the uptake of plant-based foods in North America. In Asia-Pacific, emerging economies such as India and China are undergoing a period of rapid urbanization and industrialization, which is expected to drive the plant-based snacks market growth in the region during the forecast period.
