The primary objective of this report is to offer updates on trends, drivers, restraints, value forecasts and opportunities for manufacturers operating in the global edible insects market.

Of total arable land, 70% of the land is used for meat production – either as pasture land or for growing feed for livestock. Insect farming requires less land in comparison to other types of farming and entails various techniques such as vertical farming etc.

Need for less land is one of the primary drivers, expected to drive the growth of the global edible insects market over the forecast period. Insects can be reared in any climate, and require comparatively less water, feed, and energy as that needed for rearing livestock such as cattle, swine/pigs and poultry. Substantial increase in global population and decreasing resources are factors expected to drive demand for alternative food sources.

Insects can be found across the globe and they reproduce relatively quickly. Farming and harvesting of edible insects provide farmers entrepreneurship opportunities across all economies. These factors are expected to bolster the growth of the global edible insects market over the next five to six years.

A section of the report discusses insect breeding containers and techniques. The four types of breeding containers used for breeding edible insects include concrete cylinder pens, which enables production of around 2–4 kg of crickets, concrete block pens allows production of around 25–30 kg of crickets, plywood boxes enables production of 20–30 kg of crickets and plastic drawers enables production of 6–8 kg of crickets. Cricket production cost (harvesting cycle per plastic drawer) and income and net profit per harvesting cycle by farmers are also discussed in the report.

The report discusses market share by each product type segment including as a whole segment (includes sub-segments: steam or fried, raw and BBQ) and as an ingredient (includes sub-segments: drinks, insect confectionery, snack and baked products and others) and insects type segments such as beetles, caterpillars, hymenoptera (includes sub-segments: wasps, bees and ants), orthoptera segment (includes sub-segments: cricket, grasshopper and locusts), true bugs segment and others segment (includes sub-segments: termites, dragonflies, flies etc.).
