Insect Protein Market size to grow by USD 1.14 billion from 2022 to 2027, Increasing demand for sustainable protein sources to drive the market growth - Technavio

NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The insect protein market size is expected to increase by USD 1.14 billion from 2022 to 2027. The market is estimated to register a CAGR of 31.84%, according to the latest research report from Technavio. Increasing demand for sustainable protein sources is a major factor that drives the growth of the global insect protein market. The demand for alternative protein sources, such as insect proteins, is increasing. In addition, the environmental awareness of the impacts of conventional animal husbandry is growing globally. Furthermore, along with deforestation, livestock farming is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. This is because it consumes large amounts of land, water, feed, and other abundant resources.Cricket farming produces 2,000 times less water and emits 100 times less greenhouse gas emissions in comparison to beef production. Resultantly, insect farming tends to be more environmentally friendly. For instance, in comparison to conventional livestock like cows or pigs, insects such as crickets, which are frequently used to produce protein, require significantly less land, water, and feed. Hence, such factors drive the market growth of insect protein during the forecast period. Discover Packaged Foods & Meats industry potential and make informed business decisions based on qualitative and quantitative evidence highlighted in Technavio reports. View Sample Report!

Insect Protein Market - Market Dynamics


  • Inconsistency in government regulations related to insect proteins is a major challenge hindering the growth of the global insect protein market. 
  • The harvesting and processing of insects for human consumption or animal feed are restricted or prohibited in certain regions, which limits market expansion.
  • For instance, in Europe, the New Food Regulation, which has a long and complicated approval process, requires approval before insects can be used as food or feed.
  • Furthermore, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) provides limited information on insect consumption in food and feed, creating a situation of skepticism among insect protein manufacturers.
  • Hence, such challenges impede market growth during the forecast period.
