Outlook of the global quinoa seeds market

According to the market research analyst at Technavio, the global quinoa seeds market will grow progressively and post a CAGR of around 26% by 2020. The primary factor contributing to the growth of the market will be the emergence of quinoa as a superfood. Quinoa is considered to be a rich and healthy food product as it contains essential minerals like phosphorous, manganese, magnesium, iron, and copper that help deal with diabetes, migraines, and atherosclerosis. Also, it is a good source of vitamins B and E. Quinoa is popularly known as ‘complete protein' owing to its excellent amino acid profile,  which is necessary for tissue growth and repair. In the recent studies, it was concluded that quinoa contains phytoestrogens, which aid in the prevention or reduction of osteoporosis, arteriosclerosis, breast cancer, and other medical conditions. The availability of quinoa that can be blended with other food products like cookies, muffins, and fritters to enhance taste and functionality will help in the growth of the quinoa seeds market during the estimated period.

The growing demand for alternative sources of protein is one of the recent trends gaining prominence in the market. The higher content of protein and better calorific value of quinoa has led to the increase in the demand for quinoa-based food products. Also, since it has higher amounts of lysine and isoleucine than other grains, it is vital for the growth and development of the body. Furthermore, with the rise in veganism and vegetarianism, quinoa protein has emerged as a viable alternative to meat and dairy proteins.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market appears to be highly competitive as most manufacturers are competing on the basis of price, quality, product differentiation, distribution, and promotion. Several vendors have set up facilities in various regions to increase their presence in the world market. According to the quinoa seeds market trends and forecast, the players will also invest in R&D activities to introduce innovative products and packaging solutions that help to maintain the proper nutrient balance in products. Vendors will also have to focus on the development of products and designs that are unique and distinctive to survive competition in the market during the forecast period.
