The increasing vegan population demanding a protein-rich diet is expected to be a key driver for the Mushroom market. Due to their nutritious value, mushrooms are considered a superfood. Mushrooms are high in selenium, vitamin D, glutathione, and ergothioneine, which are all essential nutrients. These nutrients assist in the reduction of oxidative stress and the prevention or reduction of chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and dementia.

Westford, USA, May 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Consumers are becoming more label-conscious and prefer natural-ingredient products. Clean label cosmetics made from plant extracts and free of synthetic ingredients are gaining popularity in the Mushroom market. As a result, personal care and beauty product manufacturers are increasingly incorporating botanical ingredients into cosmetic formulations, which is expected to boost demand. Mushrooms have a short shelf life due to their high water content, which ranges from one to three days. As a result, post-harvest storage and transportation are critical components of successful cultivation.
Furthermore, the outbreak of COVID-19 has resulted in the imposition of lockdowns to contain the spread of the disease. The logistics or goods transportation industry experienced a slowdown in the early months of the pandemic due to a lack of personnel and the uncertainty caused by the pandemic. Because mushrooms have a limited shelf life, this resulted in significant losses for growers. As a result, the limited shelf life of mushrooms is expected to limit Mushroom market growth over the forecast period.
To attract an environmentally conscious customer base and strengthen the brand position, key players operating in developed regions are increasingly emphasizing sustainable production. For instance, Monaghan Mushrooms plans to transition to reusable and recyclable packaging by 2025 to improve corporate sustainability. As a result, in the coming years, sustainability in business operations ranging from compost preparation and cultivation to packing is projected to become a key factor in the mushroom industry.
