Plant-based Butter Market to exhibit CAGR exceeding 7.5% through 2030

Sales of vegan foods and beverages have gone up significantly owing to increased health awareness among consumers, especially in terms of effects from the consumption of animal-based products. The broader gains in the plant-based food category have rubbed off on varied categories, with plant-based butter sales gaining significant traction. The growing popularity of plant-based butter has led to specialty brands experimenting with new flavors and sources. A new study by Future Market Insights concurs with positive consumer sentiment on plant-based butter, estimating market to grow nearly 7% y-o-y in 2021.

As per the Food Industry Association, around 30% of households are home to vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian, or pescatarian consumers. This trend is creating opportunities for growth for plant-based butter manufacturers. Demand for plant-based butter can also be attributed to the growing consumer preference for clean-label, natural foods, which is pushing dairy producers to develop and launch vegan alternatives.

Covid-19 Impact Analysis

The covid-19 pandemic has resulted in substantial changes in the dietary preferences of consumers around the world. Concerns over transmission of the virus through animal based products has aided the adoption of plant-based alternatives.

While demand from the food service sector is likely to drop owing to lockdown restrictions, home consumption with sales through online sales is expected to rise.

The prospects of the plant-based butter market has widened since early 2020. As per the Good Food Institute, sales of plant-based foods surpassed that of animal based alternatives since the advent of the crisis, and will continue through the forecast period.
