This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Adzuki Beans Market is accounted for $864.05 million in 2023 and is expected to reach $1282.08 million by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period. Adzuki beans, also known as azuki or aduki beans, are small, red beans native to East Asia. Highly nutritious, they're packed with protein, fiber, and various vitamins and minerals like folate, potassium, and iron. Adzuki beans are versatile in culinary use, found in both sweet and savoury dishes. Beyond their culinary appeal, adzuki beans are valued for their potential health benefits, including aiding digestion, promoting heart health, and managing blood sugar levels.

According to a report by The Hindu, the number of vegans across the world in 2022 is approximately 88 million, which makes up 1.1% of the world’s total population. The number of vegans in the UK has quadrupled in the last five years and recorded one million in 2022.

Market Dynamics: 


Rising vegan and vegetarian population

Adzuki Beans serve as a nutritious source of protein, fiber, and essential nutrients, aligning well with the dietary preferences of vegans and vegetarians. As more people adopt plant-based diets for health, environmental and ethical reasons, there's an increasing demand for versatile and protein-rich ingredients like adzuki beans. Their versatility in various culinary applications, from soups to desserts, makes them an attractive option for plant-based consumers. This trend is propelling the expansion of the adzuki beans market, creating opportunities for producers, retailers, and consumers alike.


Weather and climate risks

Adzuki Beans cultivation faces weather and climate risks such as droughts, floods, and extreme temperatures. These adversities can lead to yield reductions and crop failures, affecting market supply and driving up prices. Additionally, unpredictable weather patterns can disrupt planting and harvesting schedules, impacting overall production efficiency. Such uncertainties increase market volatility and pose challenges for farmers and traders in meeting demand consistently.


Mounting ethnic food trends

Adzuki Beans are a staple ingredient in various Asian cuisines, including Japanese, Korean, and Chinese dishes. As the popularity of Asian cuisine continues to rise globally, driven by factors like cultural diversity and culinary exploration, the demand for authentic ingredients like Adzuki Beans increases accordingly. This trend creates opportunities for producers, exporters, and retailers to cater to the growing consumer preference for ethnic foods, thus driving the expansion of the adzuki beans market.


Price volatility

Price volatility in adzuki beans can stem from factors like fluctuating demand, supply disruptions due to weather conditions, and speculative trading. Farmers face uncertain incomes, affecting their willingness to cultivate Adzuki Beans consistently. Moreover, volatile prices make it challenging for businesses to plan production and pricing strategies, potentially leading to reduced investment in processing and distribution infrastructure. This instability undermines market predictability, discouraging investment and hindering sustainable growth.

Covid-19 Impact

The covid-19 pandemic has had mixed impacts on the adzuki beans market. Initially, disruptions in supply chains, labor shortages, and logistical challenges affected production and distribution. However, the increased consumer focus on health and immunity during the pandemic led to a surge in demand for plant-based protein sources. This trend was further amplified by the rise in home cooking and the preference for shelf-stable pantry staples. Overall, while the pandemic posed short-term challenges, it also stimulated demand for adzuki beans, driving market growth in the long run.

The premium grade segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The premium grade segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. Premium grade Adzuki Beans are highly sought after for their exceptional quality and nutritional benefits. Grown primarily in East Asia, these small, reddish-brown beans boast a rich, nutty flavor and a tender texture. Renowned for their versatility, they are used in various culinary applications, including soups, stews, desserts, and even as a filling for sweet pastries. With their high protein and fiber content, premium grade Adzuki Beans offer a nutritious addition to any diet, promoting digestive health and providing sustained energy.

The dried segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The dried segment is anticipated to witness the highest CAGR growth during the forecast period. Dried Adzuki beans, native to East Asia, are small, reddish-brown legumes cherished for their earthy flavor and nutritional value. Packed with protein, fiber, and essential nutrients like foliate and iron, they offer numerous health benefits. These versatile beans are a staple in Asian cuisines, featuring in savoury dishes like soups, stews, and salads, as well as sweet treats like red bean paste used in desserts. Their firm texture and nutty taste make them perfect for both traditional recipes and modern culinary creations, adding depth and richness to a variety of dishes.

Region with largest share:

In the Asia-Pacific region, the adzuki beans market remains robust, driven by the staple role of these beans in traditional cuisines across countries like Japan, China, Korea, and India. Rising health consciousness and the popularity of plant-based diets further bolster demand. Moreover, the growing middle-class population with higher disposable incomes fuels consumption. Further, government initiatives promoting sustainable agriculture and the cultivation of indigenous crops contribute to market growth.

Region with highest CAGR:

In North America, the adzuki beans market is experiencing steady growth driven by increasing consumer awareness of its health benefits and versatility. The rising popularity of plant-based diets, along with a growing interest in ethnic cuisines, contributes to the demand for Adzuki Beans. Additionally, the emergence of innovative Adzuki Bean-based products, such as snacks, desserts, and beverages, expands the market. Further, adzuki beans are carving out a niche market in North America, supported by initiatives promoting sustainable agriculture.
