By source, the poultry segment is projected to account for the largest share in the cultured meat market

The poultry segment is expected to dominate the global cultured meat market, based on the source, during the forecast period. This is attributed to the growing popularity of poultry products in various quick-service restaurants (QSRs) has encouraged manufacturers to develop innovative alternative products to meet future demand from meat consumers. The cultured chicken products are expected to have a lower price as compared to other sources and gain wide popularity around the globe.

Additionally, the rise in demand for animal protein increases the demand for poultry products. This is further expected to accelerate the market growth of cultured meat worldwide. Moreover, the rising demand for chicken meat, owing to the rapidly growing urban population in developing countries, is expected to support the cultured meat market globally. The trend of dining out and high R&D investment by companies such as Tyson Foods and Cargill are some of the key factors that are expected to boost the poultry segment as well as other segments of the global market space in North America.

By end-use, the nuggets segment accounted for the largest market size in the cultured meat market during the forecast period

The demand for nuggets is increasing significantly as an important processed meat product. Thus, North America is expected to be the largest market for cultured meat in 2021. Chicken continues to be the most popular meat product among the people in the US and the other North American countries. Nuggets is one of the primary forms, in which chicken meat products are consumed in various countries. Due to the increasing adoption of on-the-go lifestyle and consumption of snacking products, particularly in the US, consumers are looking for options that are convenient to eat anytime. Thus, key companies such as Tyson Food and Cargill are focusing on investing in developing clean meat or cultured meat chicken products in the form of nuggets to attract consumers. Hence, the North American region is projected to dominate the market for cultured meat nuggets during the forecast period.

North America is projected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period

North America is likely to lead the industry by accounting for the largest cultured meat market share in 2021. Rise in innovations and developments, and high spending for efficient R&D is expected to be the contributing factors in its largest share. Health concerns about the consumption of meat products, increase in investor interests in alternative proteins, and potentials to provide the required nutrition in tailor-made proteins are the major factors for the consumers to shift from conventional meat to cultured meat products. In the US and Canada, metropolitan areas are expected to lead the growth due to the higher number of flexitarians, with the openness and acceptance of meat substitutes and alternative proteins. The rising demand for the alternative protein in the region supports increased investment in cultured meat companies.
