Covid and Ukrainian Crisis Impact:

The global Fungus Protein market experienced adverse effects due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Stringent lockdown measures and restrictions imposed worldwide resulted in a halt in global production activities during the first half of 2020. Concerns regarding the transmission of animal-borne illnesses, including COVID-19, along with increased health consciousness and a preference for clean label and natural products, are anticipated to drive the plant-based meat industry forward during the projected period. As a response to the pandemic, companies are making substantial investments in the retail sector. Several businesses have already started adapting their marketing strategies to meet the rapid surge in demand.

The supply chain disruption due to the Russia-Ukraine war has impeded the Fungus Protein Market growth. The disruption has increased freight charges, created container shortages and lowered the availability of warehousing space. This has resulted in inflationary issues in the aftermarket. The conflict has also led to changes in trade dynamics. The souring trade relations between Russia and Ukraine has led to Fungus Protein producers in Ukraine seeking alternative export markets despite slowdown in production.
