Tailandia: ventas totales del mercado de alimentos y bebidas de origen vegetal superará los US$ mil millones al año 2024
The plant-based food market has grown rapidly over the past few years as a result of the global trend in health. There is an expanding consumer segment of plant-based in many parts of the world.
Euromonitor International reported that the substitute meat market in the Asia-Pacific region was worth U.S. $15.3 billion in 2019. COVID-19 has accelerated the growth with growing concerns over safety and personal health. Global consumer concern over planetary health, animal welfare, and human health are the key driving factors behind the plant-based food trend, which stretches from strict diets like veganism to flexitarian consumers looking to reduce their meat and dairy intake.
Plant-based diets and meat substitutes are gaining popularity and are capturing the interest of Thai consumers. The plant-based food market in Thailand is currently growing 2-10 percent per year with growth projected to reach 10-35 percent per year, with the sector’s value reaching U.S. $1.5 billion in 2024. There are huge market opportunities for U.S. plant-based food ingredient and finished food product exports to Thailand.
