The global Veg Protein Bar Market is projected to reach a market value of USD 180.2 million by 2022, accelerating at a CAGR of 11.5% from 2022-2032.

Vegan protein bars are made from a variety of plant-based ingredients such as nuts and vegetables. Most vegan protein bars are made from fresh dried fruits/grains and seeds such as quinoa, chia, sunflower, oats, flax etc. The base of most vegan protein bars are dates, berries, apples, plums and figs, bananas, raisins and other sticky dried fruits. Dried fruits contain the same amount of nutrients as fresh fruit contains and are rich in fibre, omega-3 fats and antioxidants, which can improve circulation and digestive health and reduce the risk of many diseases. They are the perfect source of natural sugars and minerals. The consumption of plant based-protein can help to reduce levels of harmful bacteria such as salmonella. Moreover, vegan protein bars are high in fibre and nutrients that help detoxify the body and keep the gut healthy. Consumption of plant based-protein over animal protein also helps reduce the risk of many diseases such as stroke, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. In addition, these plant based-protein protein bars are low in saturated fat and cholesterol and rich in beneficial plant sterols. These nutrients help keep the heart healthy, which will increase the demand for vegan protein bars in the future.

Furthermore, consumer trends toward plant-based foods due to the rise in food allergies is one of the main reasons for the demand for vegan protein bars. As per the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, more than 50 million Americans have some kind of allergy. Food allergies are estimated to affect 4-6% of children and 4% of adults. Symptoms of an allergic reaction can affect the skin, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, and respiratory systems. Vegan protein bars contain only protein from plant sources such as peas, brown rice, hemp, and soy. Hence, the growing awareness towards health and substitute of animal based protein drive the market growth. Moreover, increasing number of healthcare initiatives by several governments and international organizations around the world will create new facets to the growth of the vegan protein bars industry during the forecast period. Market players active in the vegan protein bars market are focused on launching products with improved nutritional value. For example, in November 2019, PROBAR LLC launched his two delicious new PROBAR meal bar flavors: Blueberry Muffin and S'mores. The bars are 100% plant-based, gluten-free, and made with whole superfoods.

Furthermore, the rise of vegetarians has increased the demand for plant-based diets to maintain a healthier lifestyle around the world. According to data released by the Vegan Society, there were an estimated 600,000 vegans in the UK in 2019. Additionally, plant-based bars are low in fat, making them in high demand among obese people.

Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic:
The COVID-19 pandemic has positively and negatively impacted the revenue of the veg protein bar industry. Offline schools and workplaces are closed during the pandemic to prevent the spread of coronavirus. This factor has had a significant impact on the revenue of major players and other outsourcing companies operating in the industry. In response to declining sales conditions, companies have shifted their training focus to online platforms, often referred to as e-learning platforms. Major players took advantage of the pandemic by announcing the availability of online courses through various social media platforms. Online platforms have helped stakeholders maintain revenue. The veg protein bar market has grown significantly during the pandemic as virtually every student or worker has gone online. As a result, online courses are performing admirably despite the disruption of traditional education during the pandemic.

Additionally, increased participation in extreme sports that require long-distance travel, such as marathons and triathlons, will help drive traction for the product, as these sports are often accessible to the general public. Furthermore, the meal replacement segment is also expected to grow significantly due to an increase in the number of full-time workers. The growing number of people working in hazardous working environments such as tunnels, mining, etc., where consumption of high-protein foods is required to restore strength, serves as a flourishing factor for increased consumption of the product.
