Meat products are fresh or cooked meat made completely or partially from the meat or other carcass of cattle, sheep, pigs, goats, or other animals. Meat is generally available in the form of processed meat or fresh meat. Other sorts of meat products include cultured meat and plant-based meat.

Market Dynamics:


Intense competition in the meat products market has encouraged market players to focus on strong branding and improved advertisements to attract consumers' interest. Branding and advertisement play a vital role in gaining consumer cognizance regarding the products. As a result, players are venturing into lucrative marketing campaigns to lure consumers. Furthermore, the trend of organic meat is increasing in the market. Consumers are capable of distinguishing between premium-quality meat and low-quality meat, which influences market sales of meat products. Market players are introducing grass-fed raised cattle meat without the use of artificial hormones and antibiotics.

For instance, in February 2020, Applegate Farms, LLC, a subsidiary of Hormel Foods Corporation, announced the launch of a creative advertisement campaign named "Go Applegatarian" to be advertised on television, YouTube, and other social media sites. The campaign's purpose is to create a new and passionate community of conscientious meat lovers who share the same passion for consuming the highest quality meat products. Applegate humanely raises its animals on farms that implement socially responsible environmental farming methods. The use of social media, strong branding, and advertisement is increasing the popularity and the sales of meat products, which, in turn, is likely to fuel the growth of the global market.


Processed meat has been designated as Group 1 carcinogenic by the World Health Organization, which indicates that there is convincing evidence that it can induce colorectal cancer. Red meat includes the molecule Haem. Haem is also accountable for the production of N-nitroso compounds, which cause bowel cancer by damaging the cell lining of the gut. Consuming more than 700 grams of processed meat every week raises the risk of cancer. A growth in consumer knowledge, a spike in health consciousness, and an increase in demand for healthy food items are just a few of the causes motivating the health-conscious populace to avoid eating processed meat. Therefore, the carcinogenic properties of red meat and processed meat hinder the growth of the global meat products market during the forecast period.


The use of blockchain technology in the animal meat industry is in its early stages. The use of blockchain technology ensures transparency, traceability, efficiency, and sustainability in the animal meat industry. The awareness regarding meat quality and traceability is growing in the meat industry and the use of blockchain technology can provide assurance related to meat quality and enhance traceability. JBS S.A. announced the ‘Together for the Amazon’ program in 2020, under which JBS would progressively use blockchain technology to achieve sustainability and conserve the rainforests of Amazon. Moreover, blockchain technology will assure the prevention of animal laundering and leakage in the value chain, improving the effectiveness and efficiency of the supply chain of the animal meat industry. This will help to reduce the production cost of meat products and foster the revenue growth of the market players.
