Revenue of 3D Printed Meat Market from 2018 to 2022 Compared to Demand Outlook for 2023 to 2033

As per the research of the 3D Printed Meat Market by Fact.MR - a market research and competitive intelligence provider, historically, from 2018 to 2022, the value of the 3D Printed Meat Market increased at around 40.1% CAGR. With an absolute dollar opportunity of US$ 744 million, the market is projected to reach a valuation of US$ 959 million by 2033.

What are the Key Drivers Influencing the Market Expansion?

3D printed meat is a type of meat that is created using 3D printing technology, where plant-based or animal-based materials are layered and fused together to form a meat-like product. The process involves using a 3D printer to deposit layers of cells or proteins, which are then cultured and grown into a meat-like structure. The end product has the texture and taste of real meat but is produced using sustainable and ethical methods, without the need for animal slaughter.

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, in 2020, global meat production was around 336 million tonnes, and the global meat industry was valued at around US$ 1.03 trillion in the same year. Increasing demand for meat alternatives due to concerns about sustainability, animal welfare, and health is driving market growth for alternative proteins like 3D printed meat.

According to a study, beef production generates up to 105 kilograms of greenhouse gas emissions per 100 grams of protein, compared to just 10 kilograms of greenhouse gas emissions per 100 grams of protein for plant-based proteins like soybeans. Moreover, the production of traditional meat is also associated with deforestation, water pollution, and other environmental impacts. These concerns are driving demand for more sustainable and ethical alternatives like 3D printed meat, which has a significantly lower environmental impact.

The global 3D printed meat market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 24.1% during the forecast period. The use of 3D printing technology in the meat market has the potential to significantly reduce the environmental impact of meat production. According to a study by the University of Queensland, 3D printed meat has the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 96% and land use by around 99% equated to traditional meat production. Rapid advancements in 3D printing technology are making it easier and more affordable to produce 3D printed meat on a large scale, which is helping to drive market expansion.
