Meat Processing Equipment Market Trends



  • Growing Requirement for Food Based on Animals is Driving the Market Growth


The UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs projects that there will be 8.6 billion people on Earth by 2030, 9.8 billion by 2050, and 11.2 billion people on Earth by 2100. The world's resources are under additional pressure to produce more food and a wider variety of food due to an expanding population. Apart from the escalating population, socio-economic factors such as rising income and swift urbanization also contribute to the rising need for protein. The cattle sector has been compelled by these reasons to grow in order to meet the increasing need for protein sources. The primary source of dietary protein and a part of calories comes from animal-based food products. The World Health Organization (WHO) projects that by 2030, the yearly production of beef will have increased from 218.0 million metric tons in 1997–1999 to 376.0 million metric tons. Furthermore, the Food and Agriculture Organization and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD-FAO) project that by 2030, 371.68 million tons of beef will be consumed worldwide. The consumption of animal-sourced protein has significantly increased worldwide as a result of the rising demand for foods high in protein and the growing consumer desire for a low-fat, high-protein diet.


There are several different chemical and physical treatment techniques used in the processing of meat, and these techniques are typically combined. Equipment used in food processing has several important uses, one of which is meat processing. The market for meat processing equipment is growing due to the hectic and rapidly urbanizing consumer lives in the last ten years, which has increased the demand for convenient and processed meat technology. The future expansion of the meat processing equipment business is anticipated to be supported by this continued need. As the demand for processed meat technology rises, businesses are making investments in cutting-edge technologies. Since automation is now more in demand in the meat processing industry, there are plenty of options to grow the business.


Animal protein consists primarily of lean muscle and fat and is used to grind up beef, hog, poultry, and seafood. Because fattier chunks of meat can be challenging to deal with, manufacturers employ strong and stable machinery to cut through flesh. Major industry participants have recently introduced more advanced, heavier-motored food processors to do the task right, driving the market CAGR. Grinding meat with a meat grinder is a terrific technique to keep it fresh and of high quality. It enhances the freshness, flavor, and tenderness of food made with freshly ground beef. Equipment for producing sausage has become more and more common recently, especially in China. As a result, prospects for profitable market expansion will probably arise from the continued advancement of innovative technology. Thus, driving the meat processing equipment market revenue.


Meat Processing Equipment Market Segment Insights


Meat Processing Equipment Type Insights


The meat processing equipment market segmentation, based on type, includes Cutting equipment, Blending equipment, Tenderizing equipment, Filling equipment, Slicing equipment, Grinding equipment, Smoking equipment, and Massaging equipment. The cutting equipment segment dominated the market. Cutting is frequently the first procedure used to process meat to distinguish the carcass's vital meat and fat components from the non-essential ones. In order to prevent the protein content from disintegrating and to enable a larger volume of filler in sausages and patties, cutting is frequently done under vacuum.


Meat Processing Equipment Meat Type Insights


The meat processing equipment market segmentation, based on meat type, includes Processed Beef, Processed Pork, Processed Mutton, and Other Meat Types. The processed pork category generated the most income. The main factor driving the increased demand for pork is that it is devoid of mad cow disease, also known as bovine encephalopathy, which reduces the quality of the protein in meat. In the eastern regions of the world, processed mutton is the most commonly consumed meat variety. It is especially popular during festival seasons.
