Lentils Market Overview:

Lentils Market size is estimated to reach $40 Billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 3.1% during the forecast period 2023-2030. Lentils are a type of legume that is high in protein, fiber, and other nutrients. They are a popular food in many cultures around the world, and the global lentil market is expected to grow significantly in the coming years.

One of the main drivers of the lentils market was the increasing awareness of the health benefits associated with their consumption. Lentils, being a rich source of protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, are widely favored by health-conscious individuals. Additionally, the rising vegetarian and vegan population has also contributed to the growing demand for lentils as they serve as a valuable plant-based protein alternative.

Furthermore, lentils are a staple in various traditional cuisines, especially in regions such as South Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa. The steady demand from these regions, coupled with the rising popularity of international cuisines, has been fueling the lentils market's expansion.

However, the lentils market has faced challenges in terms of production and supply chain disruptions. Factors like unpredictable weather conditions, pests, and diseases have impacted lentil crops in different regions, leading to fluctuations in prices. FAO estimates that annually up to 40 percent of global crop production is lost to pests. Each year, plant diseases cost the global economy over $220 billion, and invasive insects at least $70 billion. Additionally, transportation and logistics issues have also influenced the market dynamics.
