U.S. Meat Market Trends 2022

The U.S. meat market is expected to grow in the next few years, with poultry and pork leading the way. This article will discuss some of the trends that are driving this growth and what we can expect to see in the coming years.

The U.S. Meat Market

The U.S. meat market is a $95 billion industry. It is the largest in the world, followed by Brazil and China. The United States exports more meat than any other country in the world. 

The U.S. meat industry employs more than 1 million people. The average American consumes more than 200 pounds (91 kg) of meat per year. This is more than any other country in the world.

There are four main types of meat consumed in the United States: beef, pork, chicken, and turkey. Beef is the most popular type of meat, followed by pork. Chicken is the third most popular type of meat, followed by turkey.

Approximately 26% of the meat consumed in the United States is beef. Pork makes up approximately 23% of meat consumption, followed by chicken at 19%. Turkey makes up approximately 11% of meat consumption.

The majority of the beef consumed in the United States is grain-fed. Grain-fed beef is cattle that has been fed a diet of grains, such as corn, soybeans, and barley. Grass-fed beef is cattle that has been fed a diet of grass.

Approximately 80% of the pork consumed in the United States is raised on factory farms. Factory farms are large-scale operations that use intensive animal husbandry to raise animals for food.

Approximately 95% of the chicken consumed in the United States is raised on factory farms.

Turkey is typically raised on factory farms.

The U.S. meat market is growing at a rate of 1-2% per year. The highest growth is in the poultry sector, followed by pork. Beef consumption has been relatively flat in recent years.

Meat Production and Environmental issues

The U.S. meat industry has come under fire in recent years for its impact on the environment. The production of meat requires a lot of land, water, and energy. This has led to concerns about the sustainability of the meat industry.

The environmental impact of meat production has led to a decline in meat consumption in the U.S. In 2018, per capita meat consumption in the U.S. was down 3% from the previous year. This trend is expected to continue as more people become aware of the environmental impact of meat production.

There are also concerns about the health impact of meat consumption. The World Health Organization has classified processed meats as carcinogenic. This has led to a decline in processed meat consumption in the U.S., although overall meat consumption remains high.

Challenges and Opportunities

The U.S. meat market is currently facing a number of challenges and opportunities. One challenge is the increasing popularity of plant-based meat products. These products are often seen as a healthier and more humane option than traditional meat products, which has led to a decline in sales of traditional meat products.

Another challenge facing the meat market is the outbreak of diseases such as swine flu and avian flu. These diseases have led to a decline in demand for meat products, as consumers are concerned about the safety of these products.

However, there are also a number of opportunities on the meat market. One opportunity is the increasing popularity of organic and grass-fed meat products. Consumers are becoming more aware of the health benefits of these products, and as a result, sales of these products are increasing.

Another opportunity on the meat market is the growing demand for specialty meats such as game meats and exotic meats. These meats are often seen as being more flavorful and interesting than traditional meats, which has led to an increase in sales.

Why Are Meat Prices Rising?

According to the USDA, the cost of beef has risen by about 5% since last year. The cost of pork has risen even more, by about 7%.

There are a few reasons for this. First, there was a devastating outbreak of African swine fever in China last year. This led to the culling of millions of pigs, which drove up the price of pork.

Second, droughts in Australia and Argentina have led to lower beef production in those countries. This has caused the price of beef to rise as well.

Third, US tariffs on imported steel and aluminum have led to higher costs for US meat producers. These higher costs have been passed on to consumers in the form of higher prices.

Finally, demand for meat has been rising steadily in recent years, both in the US and around the world. As more people can afford to buy meat, they are willing to pay more for it.

All of these factors have contributed to higher meat prices in the US market.
