BlueWeave expects the India lab-grown meat market size to reach USD 38.96 million by 2029 growing at a robust CAGR of 25.03% during the forecast period between 2023 and 2029.

Advances in tissue engineering, cell culture techniques, and biotechnology are paving the way for the development and commercialization of lab-grown meat. As these technologies continue to improve and become more cost-effective, it could facilitate the growth of the lab-grown meat market in India. The Indian government has shown an interest in promoting alternative protein sources and sustainable agriculture practices.

Opportunity: Rising demand for alternative proteins 

The Indian market offers significant potential for alternative protein sources, including lab-grown meat. With the world’s largest population and increasing meat consumption, there is a growing market for sustainable and ethical meat alternatives. Consumers in India are becoming more health-conscious and are seeking healthier food choices. Lab-grown meat, which can be produced with controlled nutrients and reduced use of antibiotics, hormones, and other additives, aligns with the health preferences of such consumers. The environmental impact of traditional livestock farming is a growing concern in India. Lab-grown meat has the potential to address sustainability issues by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, land and water usage, and deforestation associated with conventional meat production.
