Opportunities in the North American Meat Sector: Analysis of Opportunities Offered by Countries in the Region

Summary

Global Meat sector was valued at US$909.3 Billion in 2016 and is forecasted to record a CAGR of 2.4% during 2016-2021 to reach US$1.026.0 Billion by 2021. North America, with a 27.2% value share in the global Meat sector in 2016, is forecasted to record a CAGR of 1.2% during 2016-2021 to reach US$262.3 Billion in 2021 from US$247.5 Billion in 2016. The region’s growth can be attributed to rising consumer demand for clean labels and healthy meat options.

North America is the second largest Meat sector in the world, accounting for US$247.5 Billion in 2016. Chilled Raw Packaged Meat - Processed is the largest category, accounting for US$67.5 Billion (27.3% of the overall Meat sector) in 2016, and is expected to reach US$70.4 Billion in 2021, growing at a CAGR 0.9%. At a country level, the US alone accounts for 82.1% of this sector, followed by Mexico and Canada. A greater demand exists for poultry meats due to the increasing concerns about the negative health impacts of red meat.

In the North American Meat sector, there is a huge disparity in terms of market opportunities among the top countries: the US is the largest contributor in terms of market value as of 2016, while Mexico will witness the highest CAGR of 3.8% during 2016-2021. Rising disposable incomes and better availability of new Meat variants are expected to drive value and volume sales in Mexico. Moreover, the growing retail penetration in mid-sized cities and rural areas in Mexico is expected to further fuel this growth. Although the Meat sector is highly saturated in the US and Canada, superior logistics facilities and abundant infrastructure in terms of cold storage facilities will favor investments in these countries over Mexico.

The Health & Wellness market stood at US$51.7 Billion in 2016, accounting for 20.9% of the North American overall Meat sector in 2016. Increasing demand for healthy Meat products that are free from chemicals/hormones and preservatives, organic, and naturally bred and fed will drive the growth of H&W Meat products in the region, particularly in the US and Canada.

Hypermarkets & Supermarkets accounted for 79% of the overall Meat sales in the region, followed by Food & Drinks specialists with a 14.3% share in 2016. At a country level, the US has the highest share of Hypermarkets & Supermarkets with 83% in 2016, followed by Canada with 72.7% and Mexico with 51.3%. A fast evolving retail landscape and expanding large retailers are expected to increase the share of hypermarkets in Mexico in the future.
