The consumer shift towards social media and information technology has raised consumer awareness about how their food consumption habits impacts the environment. Animal cruelty and health issues have impacted the consumer buying behavior, especially in developed regions such as North America and Europe. This has also recently resulted in a sudden and startling demand for organic and natural products. Also, there has been growing awareness about the link between meat consumption and non-communicable diseases. In an attempt to cut the risks for such diseases and also for obesity, consumers are shying away from meat in their diets, which will gradually encourage them to become vegetarians in the future. Meat alternatives are perfect to cater to the permissive needs of these consumers.

Besides, a spurt in population growth is also likely to create the need for alternative foods.
