Fava Beans Market Size Analysis 2021-2026:

Fava Beans Market size was estimated at USD 3.1 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 1.8% to reach USD 4.3 Billion by 2026. Fava beans are a set of nutritious, rich seeds with dietary ingredients as protein, vitamin K, vitamin B complex, potassium, zinc, copper, selenium, iron, magnesium, and fiber. The increasing popularity of vegan culture in countries such as the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, and France as a result of growing concerns about adverse effects associated with the rising intake of meat products is likely to increase the value of broad beans in the formulation of functional foods. Product innovations are the key trend that is taking over the fava beans market.

Drivers and Restraints of Fava Beans Market:


  • Growing populations with rising disposable income are the key factor that drives the fava beans market.
  • Adoption of healthier food habits with increased intake of legumes is expected to drive the fava beans market.
  • Emerging economies like India and China in the Asia-Pacific region, followed by the increased demand in Middle Eastern countries will propel the fava beans market forward.

Recent Developments:

Market Segmentation Analysis:

By Application:

  •  Human Nutrition
  • Animal Feed

Out of these, Human nutrition products dominated the market, accounting for more than 75.0 per cent of global sales in 2018. The increasing popularity of vegetarianism, combined with the trend of healthy eating, is driving demand for broad beans, as they are a rich source of nutrients. In the coming years, increasing the inclusion of these beans in the regular diet is expected to drive demand for fava beans market as the trend of consumption continues to move from processed meat to plant-based proteins.

Fava bean flour is also used for the production of bread and pasta. Medamis, Falafel, Bissara and Nabet soups are among the popular dishes made with Faba beans. The use of fava bean in animal feed was limited due to the presence of anti-nutritional factors. However, the advancement in plant breeding and feed processing technology has lowered its presence. Fava beans are primarily used in poultry and pig diets, but the quantity in animal feed tends to vary based on animal species and age.

By Distribution Channel:

In 2018, the offline distribution channel dominated the market, accounting for more than 90.0%. Most consumers prefer to shop from offline retailers such as hypermarkets, supermarkets and convenience stores as they store a wide range of products available at different price points.

The online channel is predicted to be the fastest-growing segment of the CAGR by more than 3.4% from 2019 to 2024. Over the last few years, the online channel has become very popular among consumers who prefer the convenience and on-the-go shopping. A wide variety of fava beans, including whole, unpeeled and cooked beans, are sold through online portals such as Amazon. The trend is gaining traction in the Asia Pacific, where fava beans are enjoyed as snacks.
