One, there are sustainability concerns. As environment takes center-stage in choices made by consumers, plant based variety of proteins gets a thumbs up. Second, animal rights are a heated topic in this day and age and thus propel the potato protein market further. Besides, as meat proteins have started to be related with high cholesterol levels, the demand is taking a hit, paving way for growth in potato protein market.

Potato protein is an industrial by product of the potato starch, obtained during starch separation, which can also be extracted from the tuber itself. These potato proteins have been shown to be equally as nutritious as soy and egg proteins, and due to well-balanced pattern of amino acids and high digestibility, they are considered to be highly suitable for feed applications. In addition, increasing consumer inclination toward vegan diet has led to surge in the demand for potato proteins extracted from organic potatoes which are more sustainable than animal proteins and can be used to make macarons, meringue, mayonnaise, and improved textures in cake. Moreover, rising demand for animal protein substitutes in sport nutrition and nutritional supplements has been envisaged to directly influence the development of potato protein market.
