Global Man-Made Sausage Casing Market to Grow Over $5.41 Billion By 2030

The global man-made sausage casing market size was worth around USD 2.23 Billion in 2022 and is predicted to grow about USD 5.41 Billion by 2030, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 6.7% over the forecast period from 2023 to 2030.

Global Man Made Sausage Casing Market Size

Sausage casing is a material that encloses the filling of the meat and gives the sausage its size, shape, and integrity. The casing plays an important role in the chemical, structural, and volumetric changes that tend to take place in sausages at the time of different stages of manufacturing. There are two types of casings namely man-made and natural. Man-made casings are widely preferred over natural casings due to the immense hygienic benefits it offers.

These casings are unsusceptible to microbial contamination, and hence provide uniformity ensuring limited or no risk of the products being spoiled during transportation and storage. Man-made casings can either be edible or non-edible as they can be derived from cellulose, synthetic fibers, collagen, animal, and polymer. These casings can additionally provide spices, smoke flavoring, and coloring agents among other components to the meat product.

The global man-made sausage casing market is expected to surge exponentially due to a significant surge in demand for animal protein in various countries across the globe. An increase in the number of meat eaters around the globe due to a rise in inclination towards protein-rich diets and growth in awareness among people about the nutritional benefits of animal protein further drives the growth of the market during the forecast period.

The man-made sausage casing market has undergone transformational changes over the last couple of years due to the increased demand for meat sausages. Man-made sausage casing is increasingly reliant on easily accessible materials such as collagen, cellulose, and nylon. On the other hand, the extortionate cost of natural casings, apprehensions regarding the sourcing of animal intestines for the manufacturing of natural casings, and less availability of raw materials further drive the growth of the man-made sausage casings market.

Furthermore, an increase in the popularity and adoption of frozen meat products and the introduction of GMO-free and gluten-free casings are expected to create ample opportunities for the growth of the man-made sausage casing industry. However, the growing popularity of vegan diets among people and the prevalence of trade uncertainties are expected to hinder the growth of the market to an extent during the forecast period.

Global Man-Made Sausage Casing Market Size

The global man-made sausage casing market is segmented based on type, application, and region.

Based on type, the market is bifurcated into animal, collagen, cellulose, fibrous, and polymer. The collagen casings segment held the largest market share in 2022 and is further predicted to grow exponentially at a notable CAGR during the forecast period. The major reason for the growth of this segment is the appreciably reduced cost of production in the case of collagen casings compared to gut casings or other alternatives. In addition, collagen casings have considerably fewer labor requirements and can initiate efficient production speeds. Furthermore, collagen casings provide a number of advantageous properties such as standard diameter, strength, edible, and uniformity are further predicted to bolster the growth of the segment during the forecast period.

Based on end-use, the market is segmented into food processing companies, food service providers, food retailers, and other end users. The food processing companies segment held the largest market share in 2022 and is further projected to grow at a rapid CAGR during the forecast period. The main reason for the growth of this segment is attributed to rise in the meat consumption among people and surge in demand for sausages enabled food processing companies to expand production and meet the demand, which subsequently resulted in the increased production of man-made sausage casings. In addition, the rise in automation in sausage production and the availability of innovative food options are further expected to drive the growth of the segment during the forecast period.

Based on region, the North American region held the largest market share in 2022 and is further anticipated to occupy a dominant market share and grow simultaneously at a notable CAGR during the forecast period. The reason for the exponential growth of the market in this region is the increase in the number of meat eaters and the immense presence of a large number of sausage manufacturers in this region. Besides, the increase in the popularity of frozen meat products, the rise in the standard of living and disposable income among people, and a massive number of fast-food restaurant chains in this region drive the growth of the market during the forecast period.
