Beef Market Growth & Trends

The global beef market size is expected to reach USD 712.54 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. This market is expected to advance at a CAGR of 4.2% from 2024 to 2030. The rising demand for animal-based foods, diets rich in protein, and functional meat products primarily fuels growth of the global meat market. Additionally, there is a rising consumer awareness about the benefits of organic processed meat, which, coupled with the growing preference for gluten-free products, is anticipated to offer significant growth prospects for participants in the meat industry.

The beef industry is experiencing growth largely due to the increasing health awareness among consumers and a heightened demand for protein from animal sources. As dietary preferences evolve, there's a noticeable shift towards food products that are low in fat and calories, but high in protein. Additionally, the expanded utilization of beef in the food sector is propelling market expansion. Beef is a popular ingredient in a variety of dishes such as burgers, hotdogs, sausages, fillets, steaks, and stews, and is commonly served in cafes and restaurants, providing patrons with a range of authentic and diverse cuisine options.

Halal meat, including beef, has become popular among both Muslim and non-Muslim consumers, as this type of meat has evolved from being just a religious observation among people to an assurance of food safety, hygiene, and reliability. For example, slaughtered halal animals undergo two health checks, compared to a single inspection performed on animals during other conventional slaughter methods

Concurrently, there is a global shift in food preferences towards kosher foods, significantly influencing the adoption of kosher slaughter practices. This trend has prompted an increasing number of food providers to incorporate kosher food into their product ranges. Leading producers of kosher beef are actively focusing on product innovation and launching new products to enhance their sales, contributing to a steady growth of this market segment.
