Health and Wellness Opportunities in the Meat Sector

Summary

The global H&W market for meat was valued at US$60.2 billion in 2018, and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 2.3% during 2018-2023. Rising prevalence of lifestyle diseases, growing health awareness, and increasing consumer purchasing power are the main factors driving the market. H&W meat products are primarily marketed with health claims such as reduced fat and natural.

The H&W market is expected to display a CAGR of 2.3% during 2018-2023, lower than 3.3% CAGR seen in meat excluding H&W. The current penetration of health & wellness in the meat sector, however, remains lower at 6%, although growing interest in healthy eating habits and rising interest in products with health claims bodes well for growth in the market going forwards. Chilled raw packaged meat - whole cuts, chilled raw packaged meat - processed, and frozen meat are the key contributing categories, while cooked meats - packaged and ambient meat represent the fastest-growing categories through 2018-2023.

The H&W attributes that play pivotal roles in shaping the demand for meat products worldwide are ‘food minus’ and ‘naturally healthy’.
