Meat is either consumed as a processed meat product or as a component of kitchen-style food preparations. Processed meat is a meat that is modified to improve its taste and shelf life. Processed meat products, although in some regions still in their infancy, are globally gaining ground in popularity and consumption volume. The demand for processed meat is expected to increase due to surge in consumer demand for food products with multifunctional nutrition benefits. Therefore, meat processing equipment are designed based on the specific end-use requirements. In addition, automated food processing equipment has experienced an increase in demand due to increasing focus on production efficiency and cost reduction.

Factors that drive the growth of the global meat processing equipment market are change in lifestyle of people and varied consumer trends toward use of ready-to-eat food products. Moreover, the food & beverage processing industry has influenced the meat processing equipment market to a large extent. In addition, growth in demand for meat and poultry processing and safety regulations in the processing industry are expected to fuel the demand for meat processing equipment in the near future. Moreover, the demand for processed meat is expected to rise in emerging markets such as Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Africa, providing lucrative growth opportunities for the meat processing equipment market. However, increase in cost of raw materials is expected to hamper the growth of the global market in the near future.

In 2017, the cutting equipment segment accounted for major share in the global market. Cutting is often the first operation to be employed in meat processing to separate essential meat & fat portions of the carcass from the non-essential ones. Cutting is often carried out under vacuum conditions to reduce disintegration of the protein content, which allows greater volume of filling in sausages and patties. The cutting equipment segment is expected to maintain its dominance and grow at highest CAGR in the global meat processing equipment market during the forecast period, as it is the most common processing equipment used in the food industry.

Pork is edible meat obtained from the domestic pig and is the most common type of meat consumed worldwide. It is highly prized in various Asian cuisines for its high-fat content and pleasant texture. Pork processing can be divided into three broad stages- slaughtering, cutting, and further processing. Cutting is a size reduction operation in which meat is separated from the carcass and cut into smaller portions. It may then be preserved, sold in portions, or sent for further processing. The processed pork segment accounted for the significant share in North America and Europe. The processed pork and processed beef segments cumulatively dominated the global market with more than three-fifths share, in terms of volume, in 2017, owing to increase in consumption of pork and beef in these regions as they are rich in vitamins, iron, phosphorus, and other minerals.

Fresh processed meat comprises meat mixes composed of finely comminuted, minced, or sliced muscle meat with variable fat content. The characteristic of this group is that all meat and non-meat ingredients are added raw without any prior heat treatment. The fresh processed meat segment accounted for the significant share in the global meat processing equipment market. The fresh processed meat and raw cooked meat segments cumulatively dominated the global market with 44.4% share, in 2017, owing to its applications such as sausages, burger patties, and kebabs.
