The primary ingredients in plant-based meat substitutes are typically soybeans (and other legumes), wheat gluten, lentils, and tofu, yuba, tempeh, and a variety of nuts. An increase in the number of consumers demanding plant-based meat, either for medical reasons or as a healthy lifestyle has led to the growth in the plant-based meat market. It can also be associated with the environmental hazard which comes with the killing of animals.

 However, plant-based meat products are highly processed foods with a lot of additives as compared to traditional meat products. Also, many products end up being grey in color which makes it unattractive to some consumers. These acts as the hindrances to the market growth. Continuous efforts in the research & development by plant-based meat manufacturers in terms of better aroma, texture, longer shelf life and better nutritious profiles are projected to escalate the growth globally by removing the hindrances.
