The synthetic meat market is being driven by increasing demand for healthy, high-quality and safe meat products that are produced in environmentally sustainable and economically sound ways.

Synthetic (cultured) meat is produced by accumulating cells from an animal and developing them in an enriched and favorable medium, thereby creating meat free from harmful organisms. This study seeks to determine the status of the synthetic (cultured) meat market and assess the market’s global growth potential during the period from 2022 to 2027. The market was analyzed for the main meat sources including beef, poultry, pork, duck and others.

The market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.0%, reaching $19.8 million by 2027.
