The market is driven by improved production techniques and the expansion of distribution networks

  • The market observed a growth of 28.64% by value from 2017 to 2022. The poultry meat sales in the United States are expected to be dominated by off-trade channels by value during the forecast period. This is owing, among other things, to its decreased fat content and lower price. Factors such as rising domestic production, attributed to advances in breeding genetics that allow birds to meet production requirements in a shorter amount of time and improvements in feed, slaughter, and processing technologies, are also boosting the market.
  • The off-trade distribution channel is expected to be the fastest-growing channel during the forecast period and register a growth of 1.25% by value. New strategies from poultry integrators, such as setting up integrator-owned or franchised chilled/frozen poultry shops, putting sales counters in already-existing food stores, and offering home delivery, are encouraging growth in the retail market. Supermarkets and online stores are also supporting growth in the retail sales of chilled and frozen poultry products. These investments in the cold chain are creating channels for the growth of processed poultry. Frozen poultry is a major segment for the off-trade distribution channels. It holds 65.19% of sales through off-trade channels by value.
  • The on-trade channel saw a growth of 25.46% by value from 2017 to 2022. Commercial foodservices like full-service and quick-service restaurants held a major share than institutional foodservices. New restaurant ideas and approaches are also being tried in the chicken industry. For instance, in 2021, Buffalo Wild Wings launched an outlet named Buffalo Wild Wings Go. It concentrates on takeaway and delivery. Similarly, Chick-fil-A launched a new virtual restaurant delivery-only brand called Little Blue Menu.
