Although rising public health issues have prompted food and beverage manufacturers to turn to pulses as a source of protein, the Covid-19 pandemic has had many unintended implications for the sector. Significant parts of the migrant working population returning to their rural homes was a key trend observed in several developing countries in 2020. Farming activity has increased as a result of this reverse migration.
For example, India, the world's second-largest producer of pulses, saw a 30 percent rise in farmland dedicated to pulses cultivation in 2020; India's farmland dedicated to pulses cultivation now totals 135 lakh hectares. While the increase in acreage under pulses cultivation in developing Asian and African countries bodes well for the industry, the increase has not been uniform. In fact, the cultivation of pulses has decreased in several developed countries.
Pulse flours are expected to account for the largest share of the pulse ingredients market in 2018 based on type. Pulse flour is a rich source of protein that is used in a number of food items in countries like India and the Middle East.
