Mushrooms are fleshy and nutritious fruit bodies of certain macro-fungi groups, which can be hand-picked and appear below or above the ground.  They are rich in riboflavin, potassium, vitamin D, selenium, and other ingredients that are beneficial for human health.  Its edibility can be described by absence of toxic effects on humans and desired taste and aroma.

Market Dynamics:


Rising health consciousness

Increasing demand for food with low fat and cholesterol content along with being loaded with nutrients is likely to raise the global market growth. It additionally contains fiber and digestive enzymes that support gut and immune health, which has led to its growing incorporation in various dietary supplements. The rapidly extending foodservice industry is supporting the demand across hotels, restaurants, and cafeterias. The health and nutritional advantages of fungi can also be obtained with the incorporation of edible fungus powders into soups, smoothies, and sauces. Increasing adoption of it as a substitute for meat, combined with the rising vegan population, is likely to further drive the growth of the market.


High operational costs

Mushroom production needs a high degree of management input and skill. It needs particular treatment to achieve consistent, high-quality yields. They are strongly affected by humidity, temperature, and light. Insects and animal pests can pose serious obstacles for growers, particularly in the fields. This makes pest control critical as some insects, such as fungus gnats, breed under the same conditions, which increases the production costs also.


Increasing investments in R&D to improve commercial cultivation

Governments from several countries are investing in the development of high-quality varieties of these edible fungi that are not only safe for human consumption as well as be exported to different countries to generate income. Adoption of the advanced pest management system to control damage can additionally ensure higher yields, which, in turn, helps the market growth. Agaricus bisporus is a widely cultivated and consumed type in the world. Its growing recognition and inclusion in the diet have expanded its market performance. Moreover, increasing international trade, combined with the initiation of exotic varieties cultivation in the major producing countries/regions, provides ample opportunities for market growth in the forthcoming years.


Limited Shelf-Life

The mushrooms are very delicate because of their short lifespan, which is very less ranging from as less as 1 week to 1 day. It is advisable to consume them within seven to ten days of purchase. This, limited shelf life of mushrooms is a challenge to look after which acts as a challenge to the growth of the mushroom market. 

The button segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The button segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth as the button is the most widely consumed type across the world and can offer various health benefits. Increased R&D on white button variety to discover its potential in preventing cancer, coupled with its availability at economical prices as compared to specialty varieties, is projected to escalate the segment’s growth during the forecast period.

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

The fresh segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period owing to the growing demand for healthier preservatives-free food products. The demand is projected to witness a steep rise across developing economies of Asia Pacific and Europe due to rising consumer inclination toward organic food products. In the developing countries, where particular varieties such as the button variant are grown in abundance, the cost of fresh varieties is comparatively lower. Its low price compared to processed forms may further push the sales across the aforementioned countries.

Region with highest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period due to the product’s significantly growing demand attributed to its abundant health benefits. Prominent market players in North America are adopting advanced cultivation techniques, along with various merger and acquisition strategies to increase their production capacity and maintain their prominence in the regional market. Furthermore, the government’s support to improve the harvesting speed also aids the growth.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the consumption of mushrooms in China and adoption of advanced and modern mushroom cultivation techniques by mushroom farmers and increasing production along with the increased import of mushrooms in these countries. Mushroom production and consumption in the region are growing rapidly due to the surging demand for nutrient-rich food.
