Market Driver:

High Demand for Protein-rich Meat to Boost Market

The growing shift from white meat to red meat owing to its higher protein content is expected to fuel demand for red meat among consumers. Moreover, the consumer proclivity towards red meat owing to its better taste and health benefits is expected to further aid the expansion of the market. The surging disposable income of the consumers in emerging economies is expected to spur opportunities for the market in the forthcoming years. The rising consumption of animal-based products is likely to contribute positively to the growth of the market. Besides, the constant partnerships, collaborations, and acquisitions among industry players are expected to foster the healthy growth of the market. For instance, in August 2019, Pilgrims’ Pride corp. a subsidiary of Brazil-based JBS S.A. announced that it has acquired the U. K’s largest pork producer Tulip ltd. The new development is expected to help the company to expand its reach in the European region.

However, the growing knowledge about the adverse health effects of red meat is expected to restrict the growth of the market during the forecast period. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in 2015, the ingestion of red meat could cause colorectal cancer. Besides, the carcinogenic and cardiovascular risks associated with the consumption of red meat is predicted to restrict the growth of the market.
