The report provides company profile of the key players operating in the Vegan Protein Powder market and a comparative analysis based on their business overviews, product offering, segment market share, regional presence, business strategies, innovations, mergers & acquisitions, recent developments, joint venture, collaborations, partnerships, SWOT analysis, and key financial information.

The global Vegan Protein Powder market is expected to grow from USD 4.64 Million in 2018 to USD 13.19 Million by 2026, at a CAGR of 14.01% during the forecast period from 2019-2026. Increasing preference towards vegan diet due to the risks of cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes associated with the consumption of meat products is anticipated to propel the vegan protein powder market growth. The global vegan protein powder market is expected to experience substantial growth over the next few years as a result of growing flexitarian population in the U.S. and Canada due to extensive campaigns for promoting vegan diet via media platforms. Customers are more inclined to take plant-based protein over animal-based protein, as many consumers prefer green natural ingredients over cholesterol-rich animal-based protein that could cause health problems. The use of wheat, soy, and other vegetables help to produce plant-based protein powders. Pharmacies or drugstores, which hold a significant share of consumer health spending, have emerged as a key retail segment. Many manufacturers are selling their products through different distribution networks including direct selling contracts e-commerce sites, and supermarkets. These factors are fuelling the vegan protein powder market growth over the forecast period.

For instance, In August, 2018, the plant-based food brand, Health Warrior announced that it is launching new lines of protein powders and microwavable muffin cups in a quest to become a superfood-based platform brand. The protein powder — which comes in chocolate or vanilla flavors — has 20 grams of protein and also includes prebiotics and probiotics. It will retail for $29.99 for an 18 serving container. The company plans to watch the response to the two new lines and continue to innovate both within these categories and in new ones.
