In this market research report, Technavio highlights the rising vegan population as one of the key emerging trends in the global rennet market:

Rising vegan population

The population of consumers preferring vegan diet is increasing across countries. This will increase the demand for microbial rennet, vegetable rennet, and FPC during the forecast period. Vegetarian consumers prefer them because these products are not derived from animals. Owing to the increasing awareness of the benefits of following a vegetarian diet, many consumers are sticking to the vegetarian diet. They are very keen on checking the ingredients used for manufacturing various food products. Thus, the use of vegetable rennet, microbial rennet, and FPC in food products will encourage consumers to go for such products. Thus, the rising vegetarian population will expand the global rennet market during the forecast period.

“Veganism is becoming a trend across the globe. It is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, predominantly in the diet. It has been observed that the vegan population is increasing globally. People are adopting vegan diet mainly due to the health benefits. Due to the rising inclination toward veganism, many foodservice outlets have started providing food items to the vegan population. As vegetable rennet is not derived from animals, vegan consumers are more likely to purchase products that are made using vegan rennet,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on food.
