Canned Lamb Market Research, 2032

The global canned lamb market size was valued at $1.6 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $2.4 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2023 to 2032.

A canned lamb is a meat that has been prepared, salted, and stored in a can. In order to ensure that the products are sterilized and safe for long-term storage, it is usually done by placing cooked lamb meat in a can with all other ingredients or spice flavorings before sealing them and heating them at high temperatures.  In several areas where fresh lamb is not easily available, or as an emergency food source, cannellini are frequently exploited as convenience and shelf-stable protein sources. In many dishes, including stews, soups, sandwiches, and casseroles, they are easy to use. Nevertheless, the texture and flavor of canned lamb do not appear to be very attractive to a lot of people.

Canned Lamb Market

COVID-19 had negatively impacted the canned lamb market since meat production and processing were hampered by disruption in the distribution channel causing difficulties in obtaining production inputs such as animal feed and restrictions on live animal transportation. Other challenges were seasonal such as border-crossing restrictions and limited access to professional services and labor. As a result of these concerns, there was a drop in meat supply and processing capacity, which led to worse sales conditions, thus delaying market activities. Furthermore, during the pandemic, the government’s capacity to prevent, control, and treat animal diseases decreased. Meat and meat products prices fluctuated due to a demand–supply discrepancy, owing to panic buying and lockdown limitations. It was wholly unexpected that COVID-19 would have an impact on the animal farming sector, and other industries like food chains and farmers. Infected cases of meat plant workers spread quickly, wreaking havoc on persons and the environment in other countries.

Canned lamb offers the convenience of ingesting meals without having to prepare or thaw them. These products are simple to use and hence ideal for people who lead a hectic lifestyle. It also allowed people on tight budgets to save energy and keep things on shelves for longer periods of time. As a result, the ease of eating high-nutritional-value products with speedy delivery is a crucial element contributing to the increased demand for these items. Millennials desire high-quality food goods as well, but they lack essential cooking abilities and hence prefer products such as canned lamb. Several canned products are also available in stores and are marketed through the internet channels. These elements will contribute to market expansion.

The longer shelf life of canned lamb meat compared to fresh meat is also expected to fuel canned lamb market growth. Heat sterilization is used to preserve canned lamb products, which destroys any bacteria or microbes that could cause deterioration. This means that canned lamb products can be stored without refrigeration for a lengthy period of time, making them a convenient and practical option for consumers.

The greater availability of canned lamb products is another advantage. In all areas, particularly in regions that do not traditionally consume lamb or where there is a shortage of available stocks, fresh lambs are not always readily available. On the other hand, it would be possible to manufacture and market canned lamb products in a wider variety of regions so as to make them more accessible to consumers. In addition, it is also possible to produce and keep for a longer period canned lamb products which may contribute to stabilizing the supply of this type of meat as well as avoiding shortages. This is especially relevant in regions where lamb production might be influenced by factors like seasonal changes, weather conditions or disease outbreaks. Therefore, the longer shelf life coupled with the increasing availability of canned lamb products is one of the factors behind the market growth. The canned lamb market is expected to be further increased and expanded, as more consumers become interested in convenience and availability of preparation options for lambs.

Veganism is a worldview trend that promotes compassion by avoiding the consumption of animal-derived goods. A vegan diet comprises entirely plant-based foods, with no eggs, milk, meat, or honey allowed. Processed and deli meat companies are grabbing the opportunity and are introducing new variants of plant-based meat in the market. For instance, in 2021, major plant-based meat brands under Maple Leaf Foods, Inc. launched a series of plant-based meat products to entice consumers and cater to market demand. On the other hand, an increase in awareness among health-conscious consumers about developing ailments by consuming meat is encouraging to shift toward plant-based meat. Thus, the increase in the vegan population and companies introducing new product lines of plant-based meat act as major hindrances to the growth of the canned lamb market.

The environmental impacts of the meat may also hamper the growth of the market. The meat can result in deforestation owing to pasture. For instance, according to an article by Generation Vegan, 83% of all farmland is used to raise animals but it gives us just 18% of our calories. The meat industry is one of the most damaging industries in terms of its climate impact. It is responsible for 14.5 percent of all human-generated greenhouse gas emissions, which is more than the fuel from every car, truck, plane, bus, ship, and train on the planet. Such harms of the meat industry on the environment may hamper the growth of the market owing to rising environmental concerns among the global population.

Expanding into new markets can be a significant source of growth for canned lamb manufacturers. As global demand for lamb products grows, particularly in emerging regions such as Asia and the Middle East, canned lamb producers have a chance to enter these markets and extend their client base. Lamb is not traditionally consumed as much in various countries of the world, such as Asia. However, as prosperity grows and consumer preferences shift, there is an increasing demand for lamb products in these markets. For example, rising disposable incomes and a growing interest in Western-style cuisine have increased the canned lamb market demand in China. Canning lamb manufacturers must understand local consumer preferences, legal regulations, and distribution channels in order to develop into new regions. This could entail collaborating with local distributors, building links with merchants and e-commerce platforms, and engaging in marketing and promotional efforts. Furthermore, canned lamb manufacturers may need to modify their products in order to fit the preferences of local consumers. This could include introducing new flavors or packaging formats that are more attractive to local preferences, or producing items specifically tailored to local cuisine. Therefore, expansion into new markets can be a key growth opportunity for canned lamb producers, as it enables them to penetrate new customer segments and increase their revenue streams. But there is a need for an exhaustive understanding of local market conditions, as well as adaptability to local consumers' preferences and regulatory requirements.
