The Global Meat Ingredient Market is projected to register a CAGR of 5.12% during the forecast period (2022 - 2027).
The COVID-19 pandemic affected the parent industry of meat in myriad ways. On the supply side, it disrupted global supply chains and caused plant shutdowns, especially in the North American region. However, on the demand side, consumers are eating more meat as a result of a significant working population still staying at home, at least in the early part of 2021. This has had an impact on the underlying market of meat ingredients.
From a medium- to long-term perspective, the meat ingredients market is growing rapidly. A major factor propelling this market is the high demand for convenience foods, such as instant beverages and snacks. Other factors, such as the increasing user application in processed foods, such as meat, frozen meat, etc., along with nutrition and taste convergence, which increased the usage of flavoring agents and salts, are also driving this market.
However, factors like quality standards, clean labeling, and health concerns are hindering the market. Meat processing technology will also contribute to the improvement of heavily extended meat products. Increased regulations by the FDA and other regulatory bodies in the developed markets is hindering the growth of processed food, especially processed meat and poultry in the countries.
