Restraints: Availability of Substitutes & High Processing Cost
The availability of various substitutes for vegan snacks is expected to restrain the industry growth during the forecast period. Other easily available vegetarian snacks are still prevalent, and competing with their low price advantage would be difficult for vegan snacks.
Surveys show that consumers are reluctant to spend more on snacks, except for those on a strict diet. And due to the high processing cost, vegan products are expensive compared to regular snacks, which makes it a restraint in the growth of this market.
For instance, the plant-based meat alternative is four times more expensive than conventional chicken, three times as expensive as pork, and two times as expensive as conventional beef. For most consumers, this price gap will reduce the intent to switch to plant-based meat alternatives.
Opportunities: Growing Trend of Veganism
Growing veganism and demand for packaged snack products is expected to promote huge plant-based or vegan snack sales.
The need for vegan snacks is increasing as vegan consumers become more prevalent around the world. To meet the need of consumers who are vegan, manufacturers are working to provide a variety of plant-based snacks, such as processed snacking foods and meat-alternative snacks.
This growing trend of veganism can bring a plethora of opportunities for manufacturers. The food and beverage industry welcomes a diverse range of products and vegan snacks are limited compared to other snacks. Hence, various snacks under the vegan umbrella have an untapped potential for growth.
