Pea Starch Market Projected to Reach $307.4 Million by 2029, Propelled by Increasing Demand for Convenience Foods and Rising Prevalence of Food Allergies

The global Pea Starch Market is poised for substantial growth, projected to reach $307.4 million by 2029, exhibiting a robust CAGR of 7.7% from 2022 to 2029. This surge is primarily attributed to the escalating demand for convenience and processed food products, a surge in food allergies, especially celiac disease, a rising preference for functional food items, and the expanding vegan population.

Market Drivers:

Growing Demand for Convenience and Processed Foods: The consumer shift towards convenience foods is a major driving force, spurring the demand for pea starch as a key ingredient.

Prevalence of Food Allergies: The increasing incidence of celiac disease and other food allergies has led to a surge in the adoption of alternative starches, such as pea starch, which is allergen-free and gluten-free.

Rising Demand for Functional Foods: The trend towards healthier lifestyles and the demand for functional food products are boosting the market for pea starch, known for its nutritional benefits.

Expanding Vegan Population: The growing number of individuals adopting a vegan lifestyle is contributing to the escalating demand for plant-based alternatives, including pea starch.

Market Challenges:

Availability of Alternative Starches: Despite the growth potential, the market faces challenges due to the availability of alternative starch sources, posing a notable hindrance to pea starch market expansion.

Decrease in Dry Pea Production: The reduction in the production of dry peas poses a challenge to the availability and affordability of pea starch.
