Global Meal Replacement Market 2016-2020, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market. 

Meal replacement products provide 200-250 calories per serving and are fortified with more than 20 vitamins and minerals; they do not contain fat or sugar. They are mainly intended for weight control and act as a substitute for a solid meal containing all the major nutrients. They are designed to replace one or two meals per day. 

Growth of e-commerce sector is one of the major factor driving the market. The factor behind this trend is the increased effort by retailers to shift online to gain better visibility and offer purchasing convenience. In addition, on-the-go meal replacements will further augment the demand during the forecast period. 

According to the report, one of the emerging drivers in the market is the growing popularity of protein bars. They are considered to be high in proteins and fibers and low in carbohydrates and sodium, and they also contain vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Most people consume protein bars as a health supplement to counter nutrition loss and as an on-the-go breakfast. 

Further, the report states that one of the main challenges is the ignorance about meal replacement products. There are sections of the global population that are ignorant about the benefits of having an adequate intake of proteins, antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins, and their benefits in everyday life.
