US Red Meat Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the US Red Meat Market according to our research experts:

Beef is the largest segment by Type.

  • By type, beef is the country's most consumed red meat and accounted for 26.45 kilograms per capita consumption in 2021, a 4.50% increase since 2016. In 2021, beef also observed the highest growth rate by value, registering 10.34%, in the market from 2020.
  • Among California, Florida, New Jersey, New York, and Texas, Texans spent the most on beef products, amounting to a 26-28% share in 2018-2019. This was driven by higher beef production in the state. The cattle industry offers more than USD 13 billion annually to the Texan economy. Hamburger consumption in Nevada is higher than in most other states, with 267 per capita consumption.
  • In 2021, a change in consumption patterns of US shoppers was witnessed, with 28% of shoppers focusing on choosing nutritious and healthy meat. This trend has been evident throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, with sales of grass-fed beef rising much faster and registering a 45% increase, in value, compared to 2020.
  • Pork is the second-largest type of red market in the country primarily due to the increased consumption of processed pork, such as luncheon meat, sausage, ham, and bacon. Thus, processed pork is projected to record the fastest CAGR, amounting to 1.91%, during the forecast period. The dominance of processed pork indicates that processors play an important role in this sector, and many fresh pork packers are likely to be involved in manufacturing processed pork.
  • Over the years, the value share of beef in the market has grown significantly while the same for pork has declined, although volume shares of the two were similar during the study period. This can be primarily attributed to the rising price of beef in the country, which grew at a CAGR of 6.11% from 2016-2022. During the same period, the price of pork grew at a lower CAGR of 1.83%.
