Global Crickets Market Insights

Global Crickets Market was valued at USD 0.58 billion in 2021, and it is expected to reach a value of USD 3.39 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 28.7% over the forecast period (2022-2028).

Most nations, including Thailand, Mexico, China, and the Netherlands, now view insects as essential dietary components and functional food ingredients. Compared to many other foods, these nutrients from insects provide a more eco-friendly source of protein. One of the most popular edible insects consumed is the cricket. Protein, vitamins, amino acids, iron, and zinc are all abundant in them. Because of their high nutritional value, crickets are excellent for human food.

The need for meat has indirectly increased due to the growing population, yet hazardous gases produced during animal production have a significant negative influence on the environment, leading some individuals to switch to plant-based meat or meat with less of an ecological impact. Thus, crickets are viewed as a possible meat substitute and alternate source of protein. A rise in the usage of crickets as a protein source has prompted the incorporation of cricket protein into a variety of food items, including whole dried crickets as toppings as well as cricket pasta, burgers, chocolates, lollipops, and beverages.

Global Crickets Market Dynamics

Driver

  • Crickets are High Source of Protein

Cricket products are well-known for providing more energy than traditional animal-based protein products. Cricket protein powder contains more essential amino acids than conventional meat products, suggesting that consuming cricket protein powder may allow for adequate amino acid intake. Vitamin B12, which is only found in animal-based foods, is abundant in house crickets. This vitamin is necessary for human health development in general.

Restraint

  • Lack of Standardized Regulatory Framework

Insect farming has long been hailed by environmentalists as a highly effective substitute for the production of beef, poultry, and swine. There are no legal restrictions on the production, selling, or consumption of insects in several nations, including Thailand and Vietnam. Regulators in western nations, however, pose a serious obstacle to the use of insects in food and feed. Western regulators disagree on whether insects should be covered by the current food laws or whether they should be treated as a unique food product that needs substantial testing. That’s why uncertain and non-standardized regulatory scenario for the use and consumption of insects as food and feed across regions is expected to hindering the growth of the crickets market.
