Drivers & Restraints-
Increasing Government Initiatives to Shift to Soybean Cultivation would Aid Growth
Several companies operating in the market are investing in research and development activities to refine their quality and production technology. They will be able to broaden their business capabilities by improving technologies required during processing. At the same time, they are also striving to improve yields and productivity of soybean protein and oil.
Furthermore, in China, the government is taking various initiatives to surge the areas under soybean cultivation. For instance, the State Council released a plan for revitalizing soybean farming in February 2019. The policy declares that rural cooperatives and large planters can take efforts to shift to soybean cultivation. Such initiatives by regulatory bodies would help to drive the soy derivatives market growth in the upcoming years. However, soy contains high unsaturated fatty acids that can harm human health. Coupled with this, the availability of sucrose may obstruct the demand for soy derivatives.
