Asia-Pacific accounted for a significant market share in 2022:

Asia-Pacific dominated the soybean market with a 41% share of the overall market in 2022. Developing countries like India and others observed that their protein consumption is less than the average recommended. As per the recent survey conducted by the national sample survey office, it was revealed that 73% are deficient in protein while the majority are unaware of its daily requirement. So government initiatives such as the Right to protein are introduced by the government to spread awareness and encourage soy food consumption. The increasing livestock farming and switch towards biofuel in this region are also significantly contributing to the market. These factors are fueling the growth of the Asia-Pacific Soybean industry, thereby contributing to the Soybean industry outlook.

Soybean Market Growth Drivers:

The rising awareness about various health benefits of Soybean feed consumption:

Soybeans contain hormone-like substances called phytoestrogens that mimic the action of the hormone estrogen and are associated with beneficial health effects. Eating soybean-based food items reduce the risk of health problems, including cardiovascular disease, stroke, coronary heart disease (CHD) and cancer and improves bone health. Soybean is considered a natural alternative for hormone replacement therapy for treating women who are in menopause. This is acting as a key Soybean market trend. The rising awareness about all these advantages is encouraging consumers to opt for low-fat, low-cholesterol soybean feeds. In October 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stated that eating soy can reduce cholesterol in the blood. The FDA recommends including 25 grams of soy a day in the diet. This is driving the growth of the Soybean market.

Initiatives introduced by the government to spread awareness of protein consumption in emerging economies:

In emerging economies like China and India, the government is introducing initiatives to promote soy-based protein consumption among consumers and its importance for healthy body growth. Soy foods are the healthiest plant proteins not only because of their high protein content but because it is one of the only foods to be a complete protein containing all the essential amino acids, similar to that found in meat. So, it can be consumed by all. Government initiatives such as the Right to protein ensure that at least 25% of the plate in every meal must include protein foods. It also recommends people to monitor their daily protein intake with Protein-O-Meter. This is increasing the demand for soy-based proteins among people who are vegan or lactose intolerant along with those with normal diets. This is propelling the growth of the Soybean Industry, thereby contributing to the Soybean market growth
