Organic soybean has gained high traction in recent years, and the global organic soybean market is expected to reach a valuation of USD 2210.53 Mn at a CAGR of 17.71% by the end of 2022, asserts Market Research Future (MRFR) in a detailed study. Organic food sales have exhibited rapid growth in recent years since they serve a variety of functions in the global food chain ranging from a protein source to its use in livestock feed. Soybeans produce more protein than any other plant which makes them a popular source of protein. The fact that it is animal-free source of protein adds to the popularity of soybeans.
The young population is highly inclined towards the consumption of organic food products which stimulate the growth of the market. Also, the involvement of small-scale suppliers in the supply chain is expected to reflect positively on the growth of the market. The emerging market for organic food items provides considerable market space for the growth of the global organic soybean market. In response to the growing consumer awareness regarding organic food consumption, farmers are switching to organic crop production methods stimulating the market for organic soybeans.
On the other hand, the growth of the market might be hindered by soy lecithin allergy associated with the consumption of soybean which limits the market growth. Besides, acquiring organic certification from regulatory bodies is a tedious and time-consuming process and involves high fees due to which farmers do not opt for certification. Fluctuations in soybean yield due to the tropical environment, insects, low fertility and others pose a challenge for the growth of the market. Meanwhile, considerable investment in R&D and new product development is expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities to the global organic soybean market.
