Frozen Meat Market

Conventional Frozen Meat to Account for Over 90% Market Share: Fact.MR Study

Published : 25 Nov 2021 Industry: Food & Beverage

According to a recent report by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, sales of frozen meat are expected to top a value of US$ 61.5 Bn by 2031, rising at a CAGR of around 6.5% through the decade.

To keep ahead of the competition curve, frozen meat producers are investing millions in research & development. This is helping manufacturers in understanding the need for the product along with changing trends (demand for food with minimum preparation time, retained quality of meat for longer duration, etc.), leading to heightened investments in the frozen meat market by companies.

  • For example, Kerry Group Plc. invested a significant amount of money in its research & development team to understand the market in-depth. The team consists of sensory science experts, technicians, dieticians & nutritionists, food scientists, biochemists, flavorists, engineers, etc.

Key Takeaways from Market Study

  • The U.S. is estimated to account for more than 83% of the North American market share in 2021, supported by growing demand for ready-to-eat food items.
  • China is estimated to account for 46.6% of the East Asian frozen meat market share, supported by heightened manufacturing capabilities.
  • Thailand is one of the prominent countries in the South Asian regions with a market share of 11.9%, due to high number of trading partners and growing export demand.
  • Conventional frozen meat reflects approximately 90.2% market share in 2021; however, the organic type is expected to witness a CAGR of 7.7% over the forecast period due to rising environmental concerns.
  • Frozen meat sales are estimated to account for a CAGR of nearly 6.5% through 2031 on the back of its wide range of end-use applications in the food processing industry, food service industry, and retail sector.

“The market is driven by convenience, upgraded storage qualities, ease of use, and longer shelf-life properties of frozen meat. Frozen meat is a good source of protein and other vital nutrients, and technical improvements such as IQF technologies have improved its efficiency to a great extent,” says a lead analyst at Fact.MR.

Who is Winning?
