The global algae protein market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.85% to reach a total market size of US$886.802 million by 2024, increasing from US$596.027 million in 2018. The growing global population is increasing the demand for protein worldwide as a result of which sustainable plant-based protein sources are gaining popularity to meet the growing global demand for protein-rich food. The demand for algae protein is augmenting on account of high protein content in algae as compared to that in other plant-based protein sources including soy and pea.
According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), the production, processing, and distribution of meat results in the high usage of pesticides, fertilizer, feed, fuel, and water while releasing greenhouse gases into the environment. As a result of the negative environmental impact of meat consumption, there is a growing shift towards alternative sources of protein, thereby positively impacting the growth of the global algae protein market. However, factors such as the high cost of extracting protein from algae and the availability of cheap substitutes in abundance will hamstring the growth of the global algae protein market during the forecast period.
