Speak to Analyst:

By livestock, pet is projected to account for the largest share in the feed plant-based protein market during the forecast period

Based on livestock, pet dominated the market. Plant-based ingredients and plant-based protein are trending among pet food manufacturing professionals and becoming more mainstream in the pet food market. The plant-based pet food trend is growing because pet owners have been more inclined to consume a meatless diet. Moreover, protein preferences in dog and cat food diets have been shown to closely mimic those of their vegan or vegetarian owners, with more of these owners opting to feed their pets a diet consisting of plant-based protein. These factors are expected to drive growth in the pet segment.
