The rice protein market in Europe is close to a total of $13.5 million, which was updated in 2018. Major drivers for the rise of rice protein comes from the acceleration of vegans and vegetarians in the population. As the demand for animal-free products continues to skyrocket, so does the demand for plant-based staples like coconut milk, and vegan sausage.
The concern for environmental preservation and the ethicalities of food in Germany has grown so much that the top driver for the rice protein market is, in fact, Germany, which has the highest market share in Europe. The youth of Europe are focused on leading healthy lifestyles and building strong muscles. Since there is such a demand, the U.K has developed new technology for rice protein processing.
According to Business Wire, “The rice protein market of Russia accounts for a good percentage of market shares in Europe. The market is estimated to grow at a decent CAGR of 7.6% during the period of forecast.
