Summary Methodology

Global Cultured Meat Market likely to signify huge potential in the upcoming yearsowing to rising meat consumption along with consumer consciousness towards environment sustainability and animal welfare. Cultured meat is lab-grown meat, produced without slaughter or hunting any animal.  The product is environment-friendly owing to its low greenhouse gas emissions, low usage of natural resources such as land & water and does not involve animal cruelty which should boost market growth.

Cultured meat is sourced from different types of meat such as pork, poultry, seafood, beef, and duck, among which poultry segment is expected to represent high share due to the growing popularity of poultry products in various quick-service restaurants around worldwide.

Global meat consumption is likely to double by 2050 as per estimates of the Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO), whereas meat production is already at the peak. Therefore, meat manufacturers need to look for more alternatives to meat production, which shows a high potential for cultured meat in the forecasted timeframe.
