Fungi-based protein is becoming popular amidst the growing need for high-protein food products. Rising health consciousness, increasing consumption of processed foods, and growing demand for foods with higher protein content are the primary drivers of the global fungal protein market. Consumers are inclined toward sustainable protein sources, increasing the demand for alternative proteins. Animal-based protein sources need a lot of resources, negatively impacting the environment because of greenhouse gas emissions.

The Impact of COVID-19 on the Fungal Protein Market

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic created a medical emergency, increasing the demand for healthy food items and hygiene and medical products in the market. The pandemic has also increased the sales of healthy processed food products. However, packaged food, bakery, and meat products have experienced a decline in their sale, decreasing demand for yeast extract in these industries to a significant level. Since yeast is also used in the cosmetics and personal care industries, the demand for the products of these industries has also declined, declining the growth of the yeast extract market in 2020 and early 2021. In addition, the nationwide lockdowns also hamper the production & supply chain of the yeast extract companies.

Strong global concerns about the pandemic have negatively affected the global fungal protein market. Moreover, due to the high demand and low supply trends, the prices of snack products increased in 2020 to overcome economic instability. On the contrary, during shipping, interruptions in the supply chain could lead to temporary shortages in the supply, putting upward pressure on prices in the short term.
