[Report Description]The global livestock and meat market is projected to register a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period (2021-2026). The immediate impact of COVID-19 was a wave of panic buying by the public. A sudden increase in dairy sales, egg, meat due to an increase in meals being prepared at home, with schools, workplaces, and restaurants closed. This has made it difficult for the livestock companies to cater to the increasing demand due to disruptions in the supply chain. Clusters of cases among workers in meat processing plants evolved quickly to affect the human, animal, and environmental welfare in several countries leading to the shutdown of plants, and the effects are observed down the food chain. Thus, COVID-19 had a negative impact on the market studied. The highest growth of meat consumption is expected from the Asia-Pacific and Latin American regions, because of changing diet patterns, urbanization, population, and economic growth. For example, in 2018 China consumes around 28.0% of the world’s meat, including half of its pork, and an average Chinese person consumes around 63.0 kg of meat a year. The worldwide economic downturn has had a very limited effect on the global meat market, which has maintained its positive outlook. Globally, increasing population trends are also supporting the growth of the world meat and seafood market. Limited availability of land and water resources for animal feed production, and increasing use of these resources for food are increasing the demand for animal feed in the global meat industry. Countries such as India, China, Brazil, and Russia are among the world’s fastest growing economies; rise in per capita income is expected to shift dietary preferences toward protein-rich diets. However, meat consumption patterns are expected to remain significantly different in various parts of the world because of cultural, religious, and other consumer preference factors in different countries. Environmental regulations surrounding the global compound feed industry, and strict regulations on few feed additives, like antibiotics, are acting as challenges to the compound feed market, thereby effecting the livestock industry.
