According to research carried out by Persistance Market Research, the market for vegan egg substitutes is set to witness significant revenue growth through to 2029. The top-selling vegan egg product in the US is the JUST Egg, which is outperforming conventional eggs in some sectors. JUST Egg has sold 15 million units of the vegan liquid egg, as revealed by CEO Josh Tetrick on Twitter yesterday.

In last few years the outbreaks of various flus in the poultry industry has made major impact on the prices of eggs. Also the limited production of eggs has impacted the fluctuation in the prices of eggs, leading to the need for producers and food technology companies to come up with the viable solution for the egg. Other innovative egg replacement products recently developed include FUMI Ingredients‘ vegan egg whites created by upcycling used beer yeast from breweries.

Due to increasing demand from the growing vegan population as well as increasing applications, the global vegan egg substitutes market is expected to grow positively over the forecast period, however the research shows that hindering factors in the current market include taste, and lower availability.
