Vegan products and plant-based protein substitutes are gradually becoming the essential components in the daily diet of consumers.

Animal feeds industry is exhibiting a high rate of adoption of protein derived from wheat and are using it in animal food supplements. This is contributing to spend growth in this market.

Europe houses some of the major wheat-producing countries which are substantiating the dominance of this region in the global market. Wheat consumption in Europe is being majorly driven by the demand for wheat proteins from the food processing industry.

Insights into the market pricing trends

To tackle such risks, wheat suppliers are adopting improved wheat varieties that are tolerant or resistant to extreme weather conditions, pests, and diseases. However, this is adding to their production costs which is impacting the overall wheat market price.
- Volume-based pricing is the most widely adopted pricing model in the global wheat market where buyers can gain higher price negotiation opportunities with an increase in their procurement volumes.

The strategy offers commodities at a negligible lead time and minimizes inventory costs as no storage is required if the purchase is tightly coordinated with production needs.
