Thank you for contacting ReportLinker. Out of the many reports that we have access to about the food industry in the US, we have selected three to answer your question.
The first, The 2016-2021 Outlook for Fresh Chicken Pieces in the United States, was published by ICON GROUP in September 2015. This 764 page econometric study looks at the latent demand outlook for fresh chicken pieces across the US. It gives the demand data as Potential Industry Earnings across approximately 12,000 cities in the United States. For each city, it also gives data on its percentage share of the state and the United States. This is to help the reader compare places with ease. This report does not discuss individual players, product details or cyclicalities. Instead, it gives a long-run, aggregate view of the market. This report can be helpful to consider for sales force strategies or distribution.
The second, Ibisworld’s Chicken & Turkey Meat Production in the US – Industry Market Research Report was published in September 2014. This 35 page study shows that demand has grown in the past five years. This is because growing health-consciousness among consumers has boosted consumption of white meat, while chicken has also become more affordable than beef or pork. The forecast for the next five years appears positive for farmers, with falling input prices allowing them to increase production volumes. Many farms are expected to consolidate in order to obtain the benefits from economies of scale. This report looks at the scope, size, disposition, growth, success factors and sensitivities of the industry.
The final report is Packaged Facts’ Meat and Poultry Trends in the US. This 182 page study was published in April 2013 and it covers the overall trends of the industry. Meat consumption in the US has been on the decline for almost a decade, due to increased health consciousness and problems with the economy. More consumers are also switching to poultry instead of red meat, because of the health concerns. It is estimated that retail sales of meat and poultry products were at $85 billion in 2012, up from $73 billion in 2008. They are projected to be valued at $98 billion in 2017.
