The market is anticipated to be driven by the changing diet trends, market developments, and R&D initiatives taken by the major companies in the food sector leading to economic growth in the industry. Increasing consumption of a protein-rich diet and rising health consciousness is anticipated to drive product demand during the next few years. In addition, the growing popularity of beef due to its various certifications, such as halal and kosher is anticipated to contribute to the market growth. For instance, as per the data published by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the total meat production in the world is expected to reach nearly 366.0 million tons by 2029. Of the total additional output, 76.0% is expected to be dominated by developing countries.
The growing purchasing power of consumers will also support market growth. There is an increased shift from conventional meat to packaged meat products due to fast-tracked life in both developing as well as developed countries, resulting in an increased demand for meat extracts. Moreover, with the growing consumer awareness regarding the consumption of high-nutrition food, the demand for protein is increasing all over the world, thereby augmenting the market growth.
Rising disposable income and urbanization in Asian countries have resulted in consumers looking for the most convenient options available. The demand for convenience has driven processed meat product manufacturing. Moreover, Asia’s population is continuously expanding.

In addition, processed meat manufacturers are coming up with new products and adding new flavors to the existing range of products. For instance, according to PT Foodex Indonesia, an Indonesian food seasoning and food ingredients company, provides meat extract manufactured from real meat.

Another factor contributing to the increase in beef extract consumption is certain food safety issues such as chemical residue and pathogen detection in other meat products like pork and poultry. The beef market has shown a slight growth during the past five years owing to the increasing consumption in emerging economies such as China, Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam.
The chicken segment is anticipated to expand at the fastest CAGR of 5.7% by revenue during the forecast period.Factors such as population expansion in developing economies and associated double-income families are expected to contribute to rising preference toward packaged ready-to-eat meat products such as soups and noodles.
