The global pulses market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Pulses are considered as a superfood owing to the presence of high levels of dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and complex carbohydrates. Apart from the nutritional benefits, pulses also assist in improving digestion, reducing blood glucose, minimizing inflammation, lowering blood cholesterol, and preventing chronic health issues such as diabetes, heart diseases and obesity. However, their consumption differs from region to region depending on the dietary patterns, availability and prevailing conditions. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global pulses market to reach a volume of 148.5 Million Tons by 2026, exhibiting moderate growth during the forecast period (2021-2026).

Global Pulses Market Drivers:

Pulses can be processed into different forms such as whole pulses, split pulses, pulse flours and pulse fractions like protein, starch and fiber. The flour and fractions find diverse applications in industries like meat and snack food, bakery and beverages, and batter and breading.
Pulses are now increasingly being used in the processing of ready-to-eat (RTE) food products. As a result of rapid urbanization, changing lifestyle and hectic work schedules, healthy snack foods are becoming popular amongst the working population.
As the global population is rapidly increasing, the gap between the demand and supply of pulses is widening. In order to minimize this difference, the governments of pulses-producing countries are providing assistance to the farmers, in turn, strengthening the growth of the market.
As pulses are associated with various health benefits, the health-conscious consumers are increasingly incorporating dishes made from pulses into their everyday diets, in turn, propelling the growth of the global pulses market.
