Cultured Meat Market is segmented By Meat Type (Poultry, Beef, Seafood, Pork, Others), By Product Type (Sausages, Burgers, Nuggets, Others), and By Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa) – Share, Size, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2023-2030


Cultured Meat Market Overview

The Cultured Meat Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 17.2 during the forecasting period (2023-2030). The Global Cultured Meat Market reached US$ 224 million in 2022 and is projected to witness lucrative growth by reaching up to US$ 797 million by 2030. Cultured meat also known as lab-grown meat is produced through in-vitro cultivation of animal cells, instead of slaughtered animals.


Cultured meat has financial, health, animal welfare, and environmental advantages over traditional meat. The cultured meat industry is experiencing new collaboration between the existing startups focusing on improving awareness among the communities regarding cell culture techniques and lab-grown meat technologies. Currently, the initial price of lab-grown meat is quoted at higher than traditional meat & further commercialization of cultured meat is expected to decrease the price and boost the sales during the forecast period.


Cell-based meat, also known as lab-grown or cultivated meat, is produced using cell culture technology and tissue engineering. It involves cell proliferation in bioreactors, utilizing stem cells and scaffold materials. This process allows for the differentiation of cells into muscle tissue, replicating the taste, texture and nutritional composition of traditional meat and driving the cultured meat market size.

Cell-based meat offers a sustainable and ethical solution to address environmental concerns and reduce animal agriculture's impact while providing a secure and efficient food supply. Technological advancements in the alternative proteins sector are fueling a global transition towards sustainable food systems. As the demand for meat increases due to population growth, coupled with concerns over environmental impact, meat substitutes and alternative proteins are garnering significant attention.

Cultured Meat Market Dynamics and Trends

Environmental Concerns About Conventional Meat Production

According to studies, conventional meat production contributes significantly to environmental concerns. For instance, livestock farming is responsible for a significant portion of greenhouse gas emissions, with estimates ranging from 14.5% to 18% of global emissions in 2022. Conventional meat production requires substantial amounts of water, contributing to water scarcity and pollution through runoff from animal waste.

The use of antibiotics and hormones in livestock farming can lead to environmental contamination and antibiotic resistance. Animal waste from factory farms can contaminate soil and waterways, posing risks to ecosystems and human health and driving the global cultured meat market expansion.

The High Production Cost Hampers the Market Expansion

The process of cultivating meat in a lab setting is expensive, primarily due to the complex and resource-intensive nature of cell culture and tissue engineering techniques. The high costs are mainly attributed to the expensive growth media, scaffolding materials and bioreactors required for cell proliferation and differentiation.

However, ongoing research and technological advancements are focused on reducing production costs and increasing efficiency to make cultured meat more economically viable and accessible to a wider consumer base.


Cultured Meat Marke Segmentation Analysis

The global cultured meat market is segmented based on meat type, product type and region.

Poultry Segment Accounts for the Highest Share in Global Cultured Meat Market

Chicken consumption has witnessed a steady rise in North America over the past five decades. In the United States, chicken is the most consumed meat, with an astonishing figure of over 8 billion chickens slaughtered annually for food purposes. On a global scale, the number of chickens raised each year exceeds 50 billion.

This surge in demand for poultry has attracted numerous startups and market entrants who are investing in cellular agriculture technology to develop cultivated poultry products. Consequently, this trend is facilitating the growth of the poultry segment in the market. For instance, on November 17, 2022, Upside’s cell-cultured chicken received FDA approval for its production method.


Cultured Meat Market Geographical Share

North America is Expected to be the Dominating Region During Forecast Period.

By region, the global cultured meat market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-east and Africa.

In North America, cultured meat is gaining significant attention and investment as a promising meat alternative to conventional meat production. Several startups and companies in the region are actively working on developing and commercializing cultured meat products. For instance, on July 26, 2022, The United States accounts for a significant majority, specifically 62.2% of global investment in lab-grown meat.

Moreover, the US has exceeded the billion-pound mark, with a reported funding of £1,360.24 million dedicated to research in the cultured meat market. The increasing consumer demand for sustainable and ethical food options, coupled with growing environmental concerns and the need to address meat shortages, has propelled the interest in cultured meat within North America.

Regulatory bodies and research institutions are also actively involved in supporting and regulating the development of this emerging industry. Overall, North America is emerging as a key player in the cultured meat market, with a focus on advancing technology and creating a sustainable and scalable industry.
