Chicken Egg Production in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Chicken Egg Production in the US

The Chicken Egg Production industry has experienced volatility over the five years to 2019. Movements in industry revenue are tied closely to the price of eggs, which exhibited large fluctuations and ultimately declined. This industry exhibited strong growth through 2015, as the price of eggs steadily rose. However, prices skyrocketed due to an outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza, which spread throughout farms at the end of 2014 and continued into 2015, pushing the price of eggs up. Over the five years to 2024, industry revenue is expected to increase. The industry is expected to grow because revenue is projected to rise in line with rising per capita egg consumption and rising egg prices. Overall, IBISWorld expects the industry to have mostly beneficial operating conditions over the next five years, enabling a more stable performance of industry revenue.

This industry primarily raises chickens for egg production. The eggs produced may be sold for use as table eggs or hatching eggs.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
