Europe Frozen Meat Market Growth and Forecast (2022 - 2027):

The Europe Frozen Meat Market was worth US$ XX billion in 2021, and it is estimated to grow at US$ XX billion by the end of 2026 at an increasing CAGR of XX% during 2022 - 2027.

Europe Frozen Meat Market Scenario:

Frozen meat is primarily defined as frozen meat that has been exposed to cold air or other chilling agents. Preservatives are sometimes poured on frozen meat to prevent food preservatives and extend shelf life. Frozen meat is the most effective technique to deal with seasonal issues and has a long shelf life. Frozen beef products also reduce food waste and are simple to prepare. Thus, it provides several advantages, including longer shelf life and food safety, and is likely to propel the worldwide frozen meat market forward over the forecast period. Food is generally preserved through the freezing process and kept in the freezer before cooking frozen food, which comprises introductory food chemistry. A few examples are prepared foods, vegetables and fruits, meats and poultry soups, seafood, and other frozen foods. Frozen meat improves inventory management, eliminates seasonality difficulties, and extends shelf life for advanced purchase and long-term storage.

Recent Developments in Europe Frozen Meat Industry:

  • On 6th November 2019, Verde farms inaugurated its self-beef processing facility in Mullica Hill, New Jersey, United States.
  • On 27th January 2021, Cargill has accomplished the process of acquiring the US-cooked meats firm, Proportion Foods.

Europe Frozen Meat Market Drivers:

Markets worldwide are being driven by changes in people's lifestyles and a rise in demand for ready-to-eat food. The frozen meat market is expected to grow faster during the projected period due to an increased workforce, increased per capita income in developing nations, and increased demand for frozen foods. The freezing effect stops potentially hazardous bacteria from growing and causing food poisoning. During the forecast period, these factors are likely to boost demand for frozen meat in Europe. Food texture, flavor, and freshness are all preserved through quick freezing. When there isn't enough water, it freezes into ice crystals, preserving the freshness and nutritional content of the food. In the last decade, the retail business has grown significantly, which has impacted the total demand for frozen meat. In the retail industry, the frozen meat market presents a beneficial opportunity. Some meat products are only available at specific locations. Manufacturers are concentrating on introducing different types of frozen foods to meet the demand for meat products and solve seasonality difficulties. The market is growing in popularity, particularly among young professionals, due to consumers' ease of consuming items and saving time.

Due to the development of dietary patterns and increased consumer consumption habits, prepared food sales have overgrown due to convenience trends and lifestyle changes. The expansion of this frozen meat industry is aided by technological advancements that extend product shelf life and increased attempts to provide high-quality products, particularly meat-related products. In addition, the expansion of the nuclear family in industrialized countries is predicted to raise demand for frozen meat in the coming decade as population movement from rural areas to urban cities increases. Finally, one of the critical causes propelling frozen meat sales is the expanding proportion of women working in developing countries.

In recent years, consistent economic growth coupled with the development of the mining industry has expanded the number of job opportunities, resulting in higher consumer average income. Other significant factors projected to accelerate the growth of the frozen meat market globally during the forecast period include rising per capita income levels in developing nations, particularly the increased demand for frozen food among the workforce. In addition, one of the primary drivers of the global frozen meat market is the requirement to be ready to eat and alter lifestyles in both developed and developing countries.


Frozen foods comprise several types of preservatives that might harm the body, which is another significant issue predicted to hamper the global frozen meat market's expansion throughout the forecast period. In addition, frozen meat is frequently overpriced, resulting in higher food costs for end-users. As a result, the high price of frozen meat processing has limited the frozen meat business globally, and these costs may deter potential customers from considering other options. Furthermore, the high cost of purchasing refrigeration equipment is a significant barrier limiting the global growth of the frozen meat sector. However, many firms offer low-cost processing techniques that potentially alleviate many of the frozen beef sector's restraints worldwide.

Over the projected period, the beef segment is expected to increase at the fastest rate, followed by pork and chicken. Beef demand is predicted to rise due to its high protein content compared to other meat types. However, pork demand is driving the market, driven by frozen meat imports and exports between countries.

By End User:

  • Foodservice
  • Retail customers

Based on end-user, retail customers tend to hold the largest frozen meat market share during 2022 - 2027.

As a result, offline retailers make food products readily available to their target clients helps.

Impact of COVID-19 on Europe Frozen Meat Market:

The significant sales reduction in the frozen meat industry caused by the COVID-19 outbreak and rumors of viruses escaping from China's meat sector has had a detrimental impact on the frozen market.
