The sector for soybean derivatives has made a noteworthy impact on the food & beverage sector and on other markets as well. The soybean crop is processed into soy meal and vegetable oil, and almost all of that meal is used in animal feed. Steady demand for soybean derivatives also confirms sustained need for food-grade soybeans, including specialty varieties, organic, non-GMO, and IP beans.

Leading firms in the soybean derivatives market are continuously developing technologies and recent products with high proficiency. Therefore, the soybean derivatives market is gaining overall acceptance among manufacturers/producers. The key players in this sector are Bunge Ltd, Archer Daniels Midland (NYSE:ADM), Louis Dreyfus Commodities, Cargill, Incorporated, and Wilmar International Limited. These actors are adopting distinct strategies to develop in the soybean derivatives market. Joint ventures (JV), facility expansions, and acquisitions have been the main moves undertaken by them.

The soybean derivatives market is divided on the basis of its applications into feed, food, and others (biodiesel, soy-based wood adhesives, soy ink, soy crayons, soy-based lubricants). It is also broken down on the basis of lecithin processing into water, acid, and enzyme. By category, the sector is divided into soybean, soy meal, and soy oil. Soy meal is further divided into soy milk and soy protein concentrate. Likewise, soy oil is further broken down into soy lecithin. The soy meal segment was the most important in 2014, and is expected to grow as a result of the growing demand from the food and other functional sectors.

The sector for soybean derivatives is projected to be worth ~$176921.0M in 2015, and is estimated to reach ~$254913.1M by 2020, at a CAGR (Compound annual growth rate) of 7.60 percent.
