Report Overview

The global pea derivatives market size was valued at USD 2,865.41 million in 2022, and is expected to expand at a  compound annual growth rate (CAGR)of 11.5% from 2023 to 2030. The growth of the pea derivatives is being driven by the increased demand for pea protein owing to the growing demand for gluten-free food products. Moreover, the demand for binding and texturizing agents such as pea fiber and pea starch in food applications is supporting the growth of the market. Pea derivatives are derived from peas and are used in various industries, including food and beverage, animal feed, and personal care. Pea protein, for example, is a popular plant-based protein alternative to animal protein, and its demand has increased in recent years due to increasing consumer interest in health and sustainability. Several factors impact the market growth. One of the most significant drivers of the market is consumer interest in plant-based alternatives to animal products. As more consumers seek meat- and dairy-free options, the pea protein and other derivatives market are likely to exhibit continuous growth. The market experiences growth due to the rising demand for peas, particularly in developing regions. Commercially grown varieties include yellow peas and green peas, with yellow peas spearheading global production.

Advances in pea derivatives manufacturing practices are also supporting the growth of the market. Companies are increasingly investing in technologies that reduce their carbon footprint, minimize waste generation, and use renewable energy sources in their production processes. Another manufacturing trend in the pea derivatives industry is using advanced extraction technologies to improve the efficiency of the production process. Companies are investing in new equipment and technologies to extract more value from raw materials, reducing the amount of waste generated and increasing the yield. Advanced extraction techniques such as high-pressure processing and supercritical fluid extraction have been employed to improve the efficiency of protein and starch extraction from peas.

One of the technological trends in the market is the development of novel pea-derived products, such as pea protein isolates, pea starch, and pea fibers. Companies are investing heavily in research and development to create new, innovative products with unique properties for specific applications. For example, pea protein isolates have gained immense popularity as a vegan protein alternative due to their high protein content and amino acid profile. Pea fibers are used to enhance the texture and taste of food products.In July 2020, Nestlé introduced a new line of YES! Snack bars infused with 10 grams of plant protein derived from nuts and peas. These bars are crafted using natural, nutritious ingredients rich in fiber and are free from artificial colors or preservatives. Additionally, they are gluten-free and cater to the dietary requirements of vegetarians.

Type Insights

The pea protein segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 66.07% in 2021. The increasing prevalence of health issues such as obesity and diabetes, particularly among younger generations, has resulted in a growing preference for vegan diets. Furthermore, animal rearing negatively impacts natural resources and contributes to global warming to some extent. Although this impact has not been precisely measured, it is widely acknowledged, and awareness of this factor has encouraged the adoption of a more plant-based diet, thus boosting the meat substitutes market. As a result, pea protein as a meat substitute is expected to become more prevalent during the forecast period due to its excellent texturing properties, which make it suitable for use in the production of meat products such as chicken, beef, lamb, and mutton.

Pea proteins offer several functional benefits in bakery applications, including water holding, gelation, and increased browning, particularly in gluten-free applications. Besides, using pea proteins in bakery goods also replaces potential allergens such as gluten or soy. The increased health consciousness among consumers is prompting bakery manufacturers to introduce products with functional ingredients to increase their health appeal. This changing consumer pattern is anticipated to benefit the market over the forecast period.

The pea fiber segment is predicted to expand at a CAGR of 11.1% during the forecast period of 2023-2030. Pea fiber is a dietary fiber that is extracted from peas, which are a type of legume. It is a natural, non-allergenic, and gluten-free ingredient with several health benefits. Pea fiber contains soluble and insoluble fiber, which are important for maintaining digestive health and preventing chronic diseases. There is a growing awareness of the health benefits of fiber, including its ability to aid digestion, promote weight loss, and lower cholesterol levels. As a result, there is a growing demand for foods high in fiber, including those containing pea fiber. Pea fiber is a good source of insoluble fiber, which promotes regularity and prevents constipation. It also helps to regulate blood sugar levels by slowing down the absorption of carbohydrates, which can reduce the risk of spikes in blood sugar.

Application Insights

The meat substitute segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest share of 33.4%. Pea derivatives have gained considerable attention in recent years as an alternative source of protein in meat substitutes. Peas are a rich source of essential amino acids, and their protein content ranges from 20-30%, which is comparable to other plant-based protein sources such as soy, wheat, and rice. Additionally, pea protein is hypoallergenic, non-GMO, and gluten-free, making it an ideal choice for individuals with specific dietary requirements. In December 2020, Ingredion introduced a pea protein isolate in response to the increasing demand from consumers for high-protein products. VITESSENCE Pulse 1803 pea protein contains at least 80% protein, enabling manufacturers to make "high-in-protein" claims on the product packaging for various applications. These include sports and nutrition bars, plant-based meat and dairy alternatives, snacks, powdered and ready-to-drink beverages, baking mixes, and healthier baked goods.
