Market Segments:

Frozen Food Segment to Hold the Largest Share

Meat is a major part of the typical American diet, accounting for more than 15%, 40%, and 20% of daily energy, protein, and fat intake, respectively. A wide range of fresh, frozen, chilled, and canned meat is sold in the region, primarily to retailers and foodservice outlets. Because of its longer shelf life, higher demand, and capacity to transport, chilled meat dominated the industry. The rising consumption of frozen products in foodservice channels, especially restaurants, is driving the segment. Furthermore, frozen products are seen as a healthy alternative to canned products and more convenient due to the reduced processing time. The meat industry in the United States will expand due to the increasing attention of frozen food producers on the launch of new products.

Moreover, because of the growing trend toward white meat consumption, the poultry segment is expected to rise at a faster rate. The supermarket/hypermarket segment is expected to hold a significant market share. The investors are capitalizing on the comforts of customers to have a convenient shopping experience, which, in turn, will boost the supermarket/hypermarket segment.

Rising Demand for Meat-based Goods among Fitness Enthusiasts to Propel Growth

Consumers’ modern-day hectic lifestyles have increased the risk of lifestyle-related health conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and obesity across the world. Consumer demand for protein-rich food items has increased as a result of the increasing trend of adopting high-protein diets to reduce the risk of these lifestyle-related health conditions. As a result, the growth of the industry would be aided.

High-protein diets are becoming more common among athletes and fitness enthusiasts. As a result, manufacturers are investing in new meat-based goods, as well as increased advertising campaigns, which are expected to improve sales in the U.S. Chicken, beef, and pork are increasingly being used by manufacturers to make healthy snacks. In addition, to capitalize on the rising demand for high-protein on-the-go snacks among customers, manufacturers are developing healthy snacks.
