Increased demand for Vegan Diet and Rising Awareness Regarding its Benefits to Propel Market Growth: Future Market Insights Study

The global plant based cheese market is set to witness growth at a CAGR of 8.4% and top a valuation of USD 3416.6 Mn by 2032.

Plant-based cheese has a range of health benefits such as lower blood glucose levels, increased insulin tolerance, and a lower risk of type 2 diabetes, to name a few. Additionally, for those who are sensitive to dairy products, plant-based cheese is highly suggested.

Factors such as the rise in acceptability of allergen-free and plant-based meals can be linked to the fast growing market for plant-based cheese over the last few years. Veganism’s societal acceptability has roughly doubled in the last five years, reaching an all-time high. Veganism is gaining popularity, especially when celebrities endorse the practice.

The growth of the plant-based cheese market has been fuelled by an added focus on eco-friendly products. The dairy farm accounts for more than 92 % of the greenhouse gas emissions associated with cheese production. Plant-based cheese is far more eco-friendly, which is why it is becoming increasingly popular.

North America presently controls the majority of the global plant-based cheese market. North America’s progress is being aided by an increase in the number of people in the region embracing a vegan diet, as well as a rise in environmental awareness. EMEA is the second-largest market for plant-based cheese across the globe, with excellent development possibilities in the next years.  In Europe, the growing vegan community is contributing to the growth of the plant-based cheese sector.

Oat milk is an excellent choice for making plant-based cheese because of its numerous nutritional benefits. Oat milk is high in vitamin B and beneficial to bone health. It also provides several health benefits. It is ideal for people with food sensitivity, lactose sensitivity, and other food sensitivities because it is lactose and gluten free.
