Plant protein plants
The world is continuously moving towards a more plant-based diet, due to the health benefits, environmental impact as well as food security better supported by this diet. The global plant-based protein market size was valued at USD 10.3 billion in 2020 to USD 15.6 billion by 2026. Extrusion is one of the most effective ways to manufacture plant protein products often using soy and other legumes. This can be divided into two categories, namely dry and wet extruded products.
Dry extrusion processing is the most common method utilised to create texturised proteins, as it allows a wide range of raw materials, has a broad flexibility in creating textures, and is the most cost-effective method for production of high volumes of product. Dry extruded plant protein products have a very long shelve life, and needs to be rehydrated prior to eating.
The second extrusion processing method used for making plant protein products is high-moisture processing and is often referred to as HME (high moisture extrusion), HMEC (high moisture extrusion cooking), or HMMA (high-moisture meat analogues). High-moisture plant proteins usually require temperature-controlled storage, but offers a wide variety of products, very similar to their meat alternatives.
Aqua feed plants
Driven by the increasing consumption of fish meat due to world population boom and the limitation of wild catch, volume growth rate of global aquaculture has been sustained at about 8% over the last 10 years (since 2012), and must continuously undergo development in order to fill the gap between supply and demand for this market.
Extruded aqua feed is divided into four categories:
- Floating feed
- Slow sinking feed
- Sinking feed
- Abalone feed
Wheat bran and soybean meal are often used in aqua feed, together with a number of other ingredients. Extrusion ensures optimal nutrition and absorption of the feed.

Special purpose plants
Various other niche products can be extruded and therefore requires specific equipment. A processing plant can be designed and manufactured for these niche products, depending on the application.
