This industry research report identifies Archer Daniels Midland, Bunge, Cargill, and Wilmar International as the key vendors in the global soymeal market. This industry research report also presents a detailed analysis of the market by application (animal feed and human consumption) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global soymeal market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global soymeal market will grow steadily at a CAGR of over 6% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the rising urbanization and changing consumer lifestyles as the primary growth factors for this market. Though the increased global urbanization has led to improved living standards and higher disposable incomes, the hectic lifestyles have resulted in deteriorating health conditions and lifestyle disorders owing to unhealthy eating habits. This induces the working population to seek high-protein products such as soy products that are convenient and can be consumed on-the-go.

The rising demand for the organic variants of soy products is one of the latest trends that will gain traction in the soymeal market in the coming years. Consumers are lately switching to organically grown soy that is genetically modified (GM) free, due to the increase in the production of GM soy and the rising concerns about the health hazards associated with it. Additionally, the large-scale adoption of meat alternatives, dairy-free products, and organically produced products across the world also increases the demand for soymeal.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The soymeal market is highly fragmented with the presence of numerous small and large vendors. Vendors compete based on factors such as price, quality, reputation, innovation, and distribution. The intense competition among vendors, coupled with rapid technological changes constitute as significant risk factors for vendor operations. To survive and succeed in this competitive environment, vendors have the need to distinguish their product and service offerings through a clear and unique value proposition.  

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Archer Daniels Midland
  • Bunge
  • Cargill

  • Americas
  • APAC
