Higher Nutritional Value Promises Excellent Growth Rate

Demand for lean & mean meat as compared to the conventional one is driving the grass-fed market. Grass-fed beef has gained momentum as it is best known to be high in nutrients such as antioxidants, vitamins and helpful fat called conjugated linoleic acid. Report states that grass-fed beef has 10x more Vitamin A and 80% less in fat as compared to regular beef. It is a preferred alternative, as conventional beef is loaded with antibiotics via feed additives, which are harmful for human consumption.

Nutritional benefits apart, the market in a way is driven by the outbreak of animal diseases. Grass-fed beef comes with clean labels, which as vetted out by government agencies and undergo massive scrutiny. This has supported consumer preference for healthy and clean labels to ensure steady intake of protein.           

Environmental Concerns Create Demand for Ethically Raised Meat

Beef producers highly depend on corn for feed. Report suggests that corn production is nitrogen-intensive, a factor that has been polluting waterways for several years. Not just beef but corn has been an integral part of farming activities in the western world, making beef reared on corn feed questionable.

As this issue creates a great chasm between meat consumers and manufacturers, the latter are turning to rotational grazing systems. Today, eating meat is also associated with responsible consumption. Thus, intensifying environmental concerns and clear solutions offered by grass-fed beef manufacturers is expected to buoy the market growth in coming years.

North America to Dominate as Region Demands Antibiotic-free Meat 

North America is expected to dominate the global market as this region held a huge market share in 2019. Strong presence of key players and dominance of beef in staple diets is expected to drive this regional market.

Introduction of new products, clean labels, addition of grass-fed beef across restaurant menus and growing number of conscious eaters are expected to drive this regional market.
