DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Technological Advances that Overcome Challenges to Alternative Protein Development and Commercialization” report has been added to’s offering.

This analytics identifies the potential challenges in current alternative protein production and adoption and how technologies are advancing to handle some of these issues more from a processing and formulation standpoint.

The study identifies future technology advances to help solve the manufacturing, processing, and adoption issues of specific plant, insect, microbial, and cultured proteins in specific product segments like alternative meat, alternative dairy, egg replacers, and seafood replacers.

The growing global demand for sustainable and ethical food sources has led to significant advancements in alternative proteins. From plant-based proteins to cellular agriculture and novel fermentation techniques, researchers and industry pioneers are leveraging biotechnology, data analytics, and process optimization to enhance the efficiency and scalability of alternative protein production.

Smart fermentation techniques, gene-editing strategies, machine-learning-backed tools, extrusion extraction processes, and shear mixing techniques are some of the technologies being adopted to overcome hurdles related to cost of production, taste and texture optimization, and consumer acceptance.

The analytics also focuses on trend assessments and identifies attractive opportunities for both protein manufacturers and food and beverage companies in the next five years. A few case studies that showcase successful examples of companies addressing challenges related to supply chain, technology, and production scale-up, and noteworthy collaborations of protein manufacturers and F&B companies are highlighted.

Investment and patent trends have been analyzed to identify key beneficiaries, investment trends, and some notable funding initiatives. Growth opportunities of the future such as advanced culturing techniques, machine learning for flavor optimization, and CRISPR-backed solutions are also highlighted.
