After some struggle prior to 2002, the refrigerated processed meat market bounced back, crossing the $16-billon mark in 2002 and reaching approximately $17 billion in 2004. Many factors contributed to this, the low carb craze being the simplest and most obvious. This driver, while slowing down now, has increased consumer consumption and interest in different kinds of meat products. However, there are other key factors more important for the future, such as changing demographics and emerging ethnic groups, continuing consumer interest in convenience and packaging options, growing consumer awareness in health, and the evolving retail market.

This all-new report from Packaged Facts examines the U.S. market for refrigerated processed meat products, particularly looking at key issues and trends affecting the industry with a comprehensive analysis of the performance of various refrigerated processed meat products, including performance highlights of market players, and categories and leading brands revenue and volume growth. The study looks at market movements and the factors that will fuel sustainable growth in breakfast meats, luncheon/deli meats, frankfurters/sausages, specialty refrigerated meat products, and other refrigerated meat products. For each category, the report charts historical sales and projections; analyzes marketing and new product trends driving sales; and examines Simmons Market Research Bureau data on consumer opinions and product purchasing.
