Market Drivers:

The increase in farming practices of insects given a lower need for investments, and the decline in seafood owing to several countries banning fishing, has propelled the demand for insect protein. These invertebrates are witnessing a huge demand owing to their affordability, rich nutrition content, and minimal costs associated with their farming, thereby resulting in significant market growth worldwide.

Governments across countries are putting in efforts to spread awareness about the benefits of insect protein among consumers, especially in emerging countries like India and China, which should favor the global market in the next few years. Insects need lesser feed and maintenance compared to other animals and have 12 times more protein content compared to other sources. These factors are working on fostering the demand for insects among a mounting number of consumers. Across several countries, insects are viewed as the best source for addressing malnutrition since these can be easily digested. Insects are immune to numerous diseases and have a number of micronutrients like fatty acid, zinc, magnesium, and iron, which should also push the market demand in the coming years.

From a competition standpoint, the global market offers mild entry barriers as a result of the lack of strict regulations as well as low manufacturing costs. The market growth is propelled by the frequent research and development activities conducted by major firms.
