Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is adoption of sous vide technology in processing meat. The processed meat market in the US is witnessing the adoption of the sous vide technology. Sous void is a method of vacuum packing meat and then cooking it. In this method, the meat is sealed in an airtight plastic bag and placed in a temperature-controlled steam environment or water bath at a precise and consistent temperature.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is demand for strong flavors in processed meat. US consumers now prefer to consume proteins in larger amounts as a part of their diet. Consumers consuming products such as deli meats, sausages, ready-to-eat cold cuts, beef jerkies, and other processed meat products are looking for a broader range of flavors in these products.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is stringent laws for processed meat. The stringent regulations and guidelines issued by various government bodies will also negatively affect the growth of the market during the forecast period. The processed meat industry is heavily regulated by the strict standards laid down by various government bodies across the world. The regulatory body in each country ensures that the entire cold chain through which the food passes is under the strict scrutiny of quality check departments and the food is free from any contamination or adulteration.
