DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Global Mushroom Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Product (Button, Oyster), by Form (Fresh, Processed), by Application (Food, Pharma), by Distribution Channel (Online, Grocery Stores), and Segment Forecasts, 2021-2028” report has been added to’s offering.

The global mushroom market size is expected to reach USD 95.24 billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 9.5%

The increasing popularity of vegan diets across developed economies on account of growing environmental concerns and consumer awareness regarding animal welfare is likely to have a positive impact on the industry growth.

Rising consumer preferences for natural ingredient-based food and cosmetic products owing to the growing awareness regarding the side effects of synthetic products are expected to drive demand for mushrooms. Furthermore, mushrooms are rich sources of vitamins, antioxidants, essential oils, proteins, and other bioactive compounds, which lead to its increasing demand in pharmaceutical applications.

Mushroom manufacturers have started focusing on the adoption of sustainable production processes to improve brand position. For instance, Bonduelle Group, a France-based mushroom producer, focuses on Agroecology, wherein the company uses natural fertilizers and renewable energy sources to produce mushrooms. Recently, the company has also started using cardboard boxes by replacing the plastic packaging of its canned products.

The manufacturers are using merger & acquisition and partnership agreement strategies to increase their production capacities and expand their geographical presence. For instance, In April 2019, Greenyard signed an agreement with Carrefour Belgium, a retail group, for the supply of the former’s assortment of fresh fruits and vegetables. The agreement was intended to strengthen the commercial relationship of both companies and to expand the clientele base for Greenyard.

In addition, the growing demand for meat substitutes is likely to boost product demand. For instance, Germany-based food startup Walding has developed chicken alternatives using Laetiporus mushroom also known as chicken of the woods.

Such product innovations are anticipated to offer lucrative growth opportunities to the market players, thereby augmenting industry growth.
