Growing Preference for High-Protein Snacks

Meat extracts are made from chicken, beef, pork, among other meats. They are cooked in water till the soluble proteins from meat structure are released and then concentrated to nearly 70-80% total solid concentration. Meat extracts are also available in powdered form. Meat extracts enhance the flavor of products including meat snacks, ready meals, soups, and sauces. The increasing demand for meat-based products and savory snacks is poised to fuel the expansion of the meat extract market. Furthermore, the growing utilization of meat extracts in the formulation of culture media is expected to contribute to the growth of the meat extract market.

Over the past few years, the demand for protein has increased significantly, with many consumers focusing on health and wellness. Consumers cannot achieve their daily dietary requirements owing to a hectic lifestyle and prolonged work schedules. Therefore, they choose functional products containing high proteins, vitamins, minerals, and good carbs. Nowadays, consumers seek functional benefits from all the food products they consume. Consumers' snacking habits have also evolved significantly, with many consumers choosing healthy and junk-free products. There is a rapid surge in the demand for on the go high-protein snacks, and high-protein meat snacks are gaining significant popularity among consumers for their ability to fulfill daily nutritional needs. Meat extracts are employed as flavor enhancers and fortification ingredients in several meat snacks such as jerky, sausages, nuggets, and bites. Further, they are used in ready meals, soup blends, and instant snacks.

Moreover, meat extracts minimize the requirement of salt in processed food. The addition of meat extract increases the protein content of the products, making them nutritious and tasty. For instance, Symrise beef bone broth and extracts have 90% protein, whereas the beef meat powder has ~70% protein expressed in dry matter which can be added to a wide range of meat products including soups, meals, sauces & dressings, seasonings, and snacks to increase the protein content and add characteristic flavor. Consumers are rapidly shifting toward high-protein snacks as they have become more health-conscious, especially after the COVID-19 outbreak. This factor is likely to fuel the global meat extracts market over the coming years.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Meat Extract Market

The food & beverages industry is one of the key industries that faced unprecedented challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Lockdown and border restrictions enacted by various countries disrupted supply chains, which affected the production and distribution of various products. During the initial phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for convenience meat products increased dramatically due to panic buying as consumers stocked up their pantries.

However, the implementation of lockdown restrictions and shutdown of manufacturing units in the later stage led to a production shortfall, which created a demand and supply gap. This factor hampered the profitability of various small-scale and large-scale meat manufacturers. Thus, the demand for meat extract reduced significantly during the pandemic due to decreased production of meat products. Further, with the pandemic-induced economic recession, the purchasing power of consumers reduced significantly in 2020, which hampered the sales of meat products and meat derivatives. This factor adversely affected the growth of the meat extract market. Thus, initially, the pandemic boosted the meat extract market due to the rising demand for frozen meat products; however, the market growth was hampered later due to supply chain disruption and business shutdown.
