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.
