Mushroom Cultivation Market Forecasts to 2028 – Global Analysis By Type (Button Mushroom, Oyster Mushroom, Shiitake Mushroom, Portobello Mushroom/Cremini Mushroom), Form (Fresh, Canned, Dried, Frozen) and By Geography
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Mushroom Cultivation Market is accounted for $17.37 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $26.12 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 6.0% during the forecast period. Mushroom cultivation is a technical process. In the vegetable category, the mushroom is ranked with the heterotrophic organisms. In contrast to green plants, the mushroom is not capable of the photosynthesis method. In mushroom cultivation, waste products, which include straw, horse manure, gypsum, and wastewater, are used to cultivate high-quality mushrooms.
High nutritive properties of mushroom
Mushrooms contain a modest amount of fiber, over a dozen minerals & vitamins, including copper, potassium, magnesium, zinc and a number of B vitamins such as folate. They are low in calories and fat and cholesterol-free. Mushrooms are also high in antioxidants like selenium and glutathione, or GSH, substances believed to protect cells from damage and reduce chronic disease and inflammation. In addition to that, mushrooms are the richest dietary source of another antioxidant called ergothioneine, or ERGO. Due to these nutritive properties edible mushrooms are quite popular among the consumer globally, which is further driving the market for mushrooms.
Short shelf life of mushrooms
In general, fungi have a very short life span, though it differs greatly from species to species. Some types may live as short as a day, while others survive anywhere between a week and a month. Being fungi, mushrooms have a considerably short shelf life, which hampers the market growth.
Increasing use of mushrooms as a substitute of meat products
Mushrooms, especially Cremini or Portobello are a good meat substitute as they have rich, earthy, meaty flavor and texture both. They are rich sources of vitamins and minerals for instance selenium, zinc, vitamin B1, B2, B5, B6 and B12. Moreover, they are full of substances with antioxidant and do not contain fat and carbohydrates. They are the only vegetable that contains vitamin D naturally as a result of their exposure to sunlight. Consumers who are vegetarian, flexitarian or opting for less meat consumption can use mushroom as meat substitute to make a dish lower in calories and delicious. Rising health concerns such as obesity and health benefits of plant-basedmeat substitutes has encouraged consumers towards vegan diet. This is likely to increased demand mushrooms to use as a meat replacer thus providing lucrative opportunities for mushrooms manufacturers.
Allergies caused by mushroom spores
Mushroom spores cause allergies and other respiratory diseases, which poses a threat for the labors working for the production of mushrooms. Hence, to curb these affects, equipment such as respirators are used, which contributes to the cost of production and hampers growth of the market, especially in developing countries.
The button mushroom segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
The button mushroom is a widely consumed mushroom type across the world and can potentially offer many health benefits. The mushroom type is commercially grown in almost all the major mushroom producing countries such as China, Japan, the US, the UK, Germany, and Poland. Increased R&D on the white mushroom to find the potential to prevent cancer, along with its availability at affordable prices as compared to special mushroom varieties, is projected to escalate the demand for button mushroom during the forecast period.
The fresh segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Fresh mushrooms are witnessing a considerable upsurge in demand from the past few years owing to an increased number of consumers focusing on organic and unprocessed food consumption to gain maximum health benefits of the product. The distribution of fresh form is challenging for the manufacturers or distributors due to their limited shelf life. However, increasing technological advancements such as the use of modified atmosphere packaging have curbed the challenges associated with the limited shelf life of mushrooms, thereby favoring segment growth.
Region with largest share:
Asia Pacific is projected to hold the largest market share owing to the increasing vegan population and shifting trend toward nutrition-rich food. The Asia Pacific region has more prevalence of the traditional medicine systems, including Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicines, which make use of several species of mushroom for the treatment of various diseases. Low calorie and high nutritional values, coupled with their immunity-boosting properties, are expected to drive the demand for mushrooms in the region.
Region with highest CAGR:
North America is projected to have the highest CAGR due to the higher market penetration in developed economies of the region, such as the U.S. and Canada. Consumers are willing to pay higher prices for premium products that are specifically produced using natural and organic ingredients. In addition, increasing preference for a vegan diet is expected to augment the demand for meat replacers such as mushrooms from food and dietary supplements industries over the forecast period.
