Global Processed Meat Market

Market Overview

Meat & poultry is a major segment of processed food where processed meat is produced by meat products from animal fat and muscle meat. Wide consumption of meat is driving the demand of processed meat globally. Rising population and increasing disposable income in emerging economies such as Latin American and Asia Pacific is bolstering the global processed meat market. However, more consumption of processed meat products leads to the risk of cardiovascular diseases and cancer responsible for lowering the demand of processed meat across the world. In 2015, as per the study performed by The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a cancer agency of the World Health Organization, mentioned processed meat as carcinogenic. The study suggests that consumption of 50gms of processed meat every day creates 18% risk of colorectal cancer.

However, due to high consumption and demand of meat, many companies are investing in processed meat business for high return of profit. For instance, in 2016, Siniora Food Industries acquired Diamond Meat Processing a UAE based company for USD 12 million. The acquisition aims to diversify and expand product portfolio of the company. Moreover, in 2016, a wholesale giant company Costco invested USD 180 million to develop its own poultry farm so that the farm can produce one-third of all its chickens including raw meat. Such investments are targeted to expand production and business opportunity of processed meat in the near future.
