This market research study identifies Archer Daniels Midland, Cargill, Hain Celestial, and WHITEWAVE FOODS as the leading players in the soy food market in the US. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by product (whole soy foods, soy oil, and other soy foods) and by distribution channel (hypermarkets and supermarkets, health food stores, and others).

Overview of the soy food market in the US

Lactose intolerance resutls in various issues inclduing digestive problems, flatulence, diarrhea, bloated stomach, stomach cramps and pains, and stomach rumbling. Our research analysis on the soy food market in the US identifies that the rising levels of lactose intolerance and dairy allergies will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the market's growth. It has been observed that the cases of food allergies have increased in the US by 18% over the past last decade. Around 30-50 million US consumers are lactose-intolerant. The rising prevalence of lactose intolerance in the country is compelling consumers to adopt non-dairy products, soy protein, and animal proteins. This will boost the sales of soy-based products, fueling market growth. Technavio's market research analysts predict that this global market will post a revenue of almost USD 17 billion by 2021.

The growing awareness about meat analogs such as soy meat and the health benefits of organic dairy alternatives are driving the demand for organic soy foods such as organic soy milk. With the consumers increasingly preferring organically grown products due to the rising awareness on the production of genetically modified (GM) crops, the coming years will witness a rise in the demand for organic soy food products. According to this industry research report, this rising demand for organic soy food will be one of the key trends that will gain traction in this market during the estimated period.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The soy food market in the US is characterized by the presence of many vendors. The vendors are increasingly competing against each other based on factors such as price, product differentiation, quality, distribution, and promotion. Though the regional and local players are investing heavily in the production of soy products, the established players have a competitive edge over these regional vendors. To survive the market's competitive environment, the vendors are increasingly focusing on improving product quality.

Key vendors in this market are -

  • Archer Daniels Midland
  • Cargill
  • Hain Celestial

Other prominent vendors in the market include Blue Diamond Growers, Dean Foods, DuPont, Eden Foods, Northern Soy, PACIFIC FOODS OF OREGON, and SunOpta.

Segmentation by product and analysis of the soy food market in the US

  • Whole soy foods
  • Soy oil

The production process of soy oil includes degumming, refining, bleaching, and deodorizing soy. The demand for soy oil is high in the US due to the numerous health benefits associated with it. Soy oil boosts the immune system, promotes healthy skin and eyes, and regulates the cholesterol levels. The demand for soy oil will continue to increase in the US during the next four years due to its emulsifying ability and low-calorie content.

Segmentation by distribution channel and analysis of the soy food market in the US

  • Hypermarkets and supermarkets
  • Health food stores

Hypermarkets and supermarkets are the leading distribution channel for soy foods in the US. This is mainly due to the growth of the organized retail sector in the country. Also, supermarkets and hypermarkets expand shelf space for alternative dairy drinks, include soy-based dairy alternative beverages, and stock various soy milk brands. This in turn, will drive the preference of consumers to these stores.
