Vegan food emerged as the largest product segment in the market in 2020. Rising awareness regarding various health benefits of consuming plant-based food products has widened the consumer base of this industry. Plant-based products help maintain blood pressure levels and lower the risk of heart disease.

Furthermore, growing awareness regarding animal wellbeing and animal cruelty in the food industry has been encouraging people to shift from animal-based to plant-based food products. According to The Vegan Society, the number of U.S. consumers identifying as vegan grew from 1% to 6% from 2014 to 2017. These products are Googled three times more than gluten-free products.

In addition, manufacturers in the market have introduced a number of quality food items in different flavors with attractive packaging solutions. This is also likely to contribute to market growth. Among such products, plant-based cheese accounts for the largest share among dairy alternatives.

Furthermore, retail stores, grocery shops, and supermarkets & hypermarkets have been increasing shelf spaces for vegan products such as bakery, confectionery, and other snacks as they witness a shift in consumer behavior toward vegan foods and products.

Distribution Channel Insights

The offline segment held the largest revenue share of over 85.0% in 2020 and is expected to maintain its lead over the forecast period. The offline distribution channel is projected to retain its position throughout the forecast period owing to the high consumer inclination toward shopping grocery products from supermarkets and convenience stores, where they can be physically examined to ensure product quality.

Moreover, the wide availability of both premium and private label brands at these stores encourage consumers to purchase products through these channels. Major players in the industry are opening new stores in the region to cater to a larger number of customers. For instance, in December 2020, Aldi announced the opening of a new store in Monmouth Junction.

The online segment is projected to register the fastest growth from 2021 to 2028. Benefits offered by the online channel, including shopping from the comfort of one’s home, doorstep delivery, free shipping, and discounts, are mainly attracting millennials and the younger generation to opt for this channel. Furthermore, increasing familiarity and rising dependence of generation X, millennials, and generation Z on the internet and e-commerce are the major factors expected to drive the sales of vegan products through the online channel in the coming years.

Product Insights

The food segment held the largest revenue share of over 50.0% in 2020 and is expected to maintain its lead over the forecast period. Factors such as nutritional advantages of vegan meals, rising awareness of animal cruelty, increased product launches, and higher celebrity and athlete endorsements, including by Lewis Hamilton and Ava DuVernay, are expected to spur the demand for vegan products.

Moreover, due to hectic schedules and lack of time for cooking, consumers are opting for meal kits to enjoy vegan foods. Various companies have been altering their menus and adding vegan options including farm-fresh, non-GMO, seasonal, and nut-free. For instance, Purple Carrot delivers ready meal kits created with a variety of fresh, high-quality ingredients.
