In this report, we analyze the market penetration potential of seven target categories — from proteins to health ingredients — based on five different metrics and highlight case studies from key innovators. Developers must overcome technology value chain challenges to scale up the target ingredient production and strike the right strategic partnerships to make a tangible market impact.
