Driving Factors

The Japanese plant protein market has grown significantly in recent years, owing largely to shifting consumer preferences toward more sustainable and plant-based diets. As consumer awareness of environmental and health concerns grows, many Japanese consumers are seeking alternatives to animal-based proteins, making plant proteins more popular, and Japan's younger generations are more environmentally conscious and interested in new food trends. Companies must appeal to them with affordable and tasty offerings if alternative proteins are to become a regular part of their diets in the future. In addition, the Japanese government has established government bodies to promote food technology, including alternative proteins.


Restraining Factors

Plant-based foods and beverages provide numerous health benefits and essential minerals; however, their consumption has been linked to allergies in some cases, limiting market growth. Soybeans, for example, are high in nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and proteins, but they can cause allergies due to the presence of anti-nutritional components.


Market Segment

  • In 2022, the soy protein segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on the protein type, the Japan plant-based protein market is segmented into hemp protein, pea protein, potato protein, rice protein, soy protein, and wheat protein. Among these, the soy protein segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. For centuries, soybeans have been a traditional staple of the Japanese diet, making soy-based products culturally acceptable and familiar to the population. This long-standing familiarity serves as an excellent foundation for the acceptance of soy protein-based foods and beverages. Soy protein also has an impressive nutritional profile. It is a complete protein that contains all nine essential amino acids that the human body requires. It is also low in saturated fat, cholesterol-free, and high in vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber. As such, soy protein appeals to health-conscious consumers looking for nutrient-dense plant-based alternatives.


  • In 2022, the supplement & nutritional powder segment accounted for a significant revenue share over the forecast period.

Based on the application, the Japan plant-based protein market is segmented into protein beverages, supplement & nutritional powder, beverages, protein & nutritional bars, bakery & snacks, breakfast cereals, meat products, dairy products, infant nutrition, animal feed, and others. Among these, the supplement & nutritional powder segment has a significant revenue share over the forecast period. Protein-rich nutritional supplements are becoming more popular as consumers become more aware of the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle and eating a nutritious, well-balanced diet. Furthermore, the rising incidence of cardiovascular diseases caused by an inactive and sedentary lifestyle, particularly among people aged 30 to 40, as well as changing dietary habits, are expected to raise consumer awareness of the benefits of consuming functional protein-rich foods, assisting the segment in expanding.
