The pea segment is driven by the rising demand for plant-based meat and healthy food products. A significant increase in the usage of pea as a key ingredient is being noticed in the plant-based meat industry. It is gradually becoming the primary choice for plant-based meat consumers due to its high nutritional profile and rich protein content. Leading players in the global plant-based meat industry are now shifting their interest toward pea and have also started developing pea-based meat products such as patties, sausages, and slides, which are high in protein content.

The perception of consumers about beverage products has changed as beverages are no longer just thirst-quenching drinks. Considering these requirements, beverage manufacturers across the world are actively developing and introducing plant-based beverage products. Moreover, in response to this trend, leading plant protein producers are introducing new and high-protein sources in the global market. For instance, DuPont Nutrition & Health expanded its plant-based protein product range with a new pea protein for beverages called TRUPRO 2000 Pea Protein in 2018.
