This new brand is made of non-GMO chickpeas, rich in protein, gluten-free, naturally vegan, and kosher, and is reportedly devoid of fillers, stabilizers, or gums.
The rise in vegan and plant-based diets is expected to significantly drive the bean pasta market, consequently facilitating its growth. The foremost affirmation of the aforesaid is the series of market developments that have been mentioned earlier. The additional factor responsible for propelling the myriad of developments in the bean pasta market space is the rising incidence of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and celiac diseases in the region, driving the need for gluten-free food products. From a global perspective, Knowledge Sourcing Intelligence estimates that the gluten-free products market is estimated to reach a total market size of US$10.931 billion by 2024 from the market size of US$6.512 billion that was registered in 2018, witnessing a compound annual growth rate of 9.02%. Across the world, there has been an increasing interest in plant-based food products, especially in developed economies characterized by growing consumer awareness about the benefits of consuming food products that contain proteins derived from plants. Moreover, there has been a recent change in consumer preference that has stemmed from concerns about the negative impacts of animal husbandry on the environment as well as concerns about animal welfare.
Capitalizing on the shift in such preference, there has been an increase in strategic moves by market players who have strengthened their presence in the market. The product launches are marked by the successful imitation of the sensorial experience, which has been otherwise associated with the consumption of food products made out of traditional ingredients or, considering this market, non-leguminous ingredients. Consumers being the strongest drivers of any market, are also facilitating the growth of this market by integrating plant-based protein sources into their diet. Moreover, the small disruptor brands which are bringing about new product innovations in plant-based market space are incentivizing food and beverage MNCs to expand their offerings, thereby accommodating pant-based food products as well and consequently protecting their share markets, ultimately driving the bean pasta market growth. Before all, forgoing aggressive marketing campaigns over social media is aiding market players to gain even more traction for their products. Besides, Germany has emerged as a nation where the vegan population has rapidly expanded in recent years. To this end, it is important to note that since 2014, the number of people identifying as either complete or nearly complete vegetarians has reportedly grown by approximately 700 thousand individuals, reaching about 8 million people in 2019. Moreover, according to the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture, out of the aforesaid figure, around 814,000 individuals are vegans, which constitutes 1%, and 35% of the population reportedly considers the availability of vegetarian or vegan products as very important, and 63% of Germans who are trying to minimize their consumption of meat [Source: USDA]. To put those mentioned above in context, it is important to note that EDEKA, a German retailer, reportedly launched low-carb, gluten-free, organic pasta called Edeka Biopasta in November 2019, which is available in two variants that are made of chickpeas that are made of 100% chickpea flour and red lentils. Both ingredients are reportedly cultivated organically.
