An increase in the concern about the environment among the population is driving the growth of the vegan market.Rearing and breeding of livestock such as pigs, hens, cows, goats in farms contributes to the greenhouse effect.

Greenhouse gases are released from agriculture of livestock such as cows and the gases released block the atmospheric heat from escaping which increases the overall temperature.The demand for animal meat requires excess practice of animal farming.

Thus, increase in the number of consumers for vegan food, eliminates the demand for excessive animal farming, following a decrease in emission of greenhouse gases in the environment. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, in 2018, total gross U.S. greenhouse gas emissions were 6,676.6 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MMT CO2 Eq). Thus, an increase in the concern about the environment among the population is driving the growth of the vegan market.

Vegan food products lack certain nutrients.Vegan products do not contain any animal ingredients or animal-derived ingredients.

Vegan food doesn’t contain an adequate amount of high-quality protein and fats, vegan and vegetarian diets lack in many very important minerals, such as calcium, iron, and zinc.According to a study published in 2020 by BMC Medicine, vegans have a higher fracture risk as compared to meat-eaters, fish eaters, and vegetarians.

The strongest associations were observed for hip fractures, for which fish eaters, vegetarians, and vegans all had higher risks.This is due to an inadequate calcium intake in a vegan diet.

Therefore, the lack of essential nutrients factor impacts the growth of the vegan market.

One of the trends in the vegan market is the production of meat through cell-based technology.The cell-by -cell identical meat is produced in factories without involving the killing of animals.

Following the trend, in 2019, Memphis Meats, a U.S.A based cell-based meat start up, received investments from Cargill, a U.S.A based food production company, for the production of cell-based vegan animal meat. Other major players such as Tyson Foods., an U.S.A. based processor and marketer of chicken, beef, and pork, are also investing in Memphis Meats in order to support the cell -based meat production.
