COVID-19 Impact-

Manufacturing and distribution of meat will be disrupted amid COVID-19, limiting market growth

The COVID-19 crisis had a significant impact on the production and supply of raw materials used in the meat industry. The availability of animal feed materials has significantly decreased due to disruptions in logistics. This increased the cost of raising feeder cattle for farm owners and had an impact on-farm production. Various meat processing plants were either closed or operating at reduced capacity as a result of worker infections. As a result, animal farm owners had few options for selling their animals in various meat processing plants. They were forced to euthanize the animals, which impacted their cattle market revenue generation.

Rising Disposable Incomes and Growing Demand for Animal Protein to Drive Growth

One of the major factors driving consumer demand for nutritious, protein-rich meat products is an increase in disposable income.

Consumers began to include meat products, including beef, in their diets as their living standards improved and they became more aware of the importance of animal protein. However, animal farms are a major source of greenhouse gasses, and reducing meat consumption will eventually produce animal production. This factor will result in impeding the beef market growth.
