Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest share of the global raw chicken meat market in 2020. The market in this region is projected to register remarkable growth during the forecast period, and the projected growth is mainly attributed to rapidly increasing population, significant economic development, surge in spending capacity of people, and growth of the food & beverages industry. Asia-Pacific is one of the most lucrative markets for the manufacturers of raw chicken meat due to high demand for these products. As a result, manufacturers are offering products such as meat at affordable prices.
The COVID-19 pandemic hit meat production, meat prices, and supply chain in 2020. The imposition of lockdowns, reduction in the labor force, restrictions on transportation, and changes in the legislation of local and global exports introduced new challenges in the production and processing of raw chicken meat. The poultry industry that employs 1.5 million smallholder farmers observed the worst hit. According to the Frontiers Media S.A., in April 2020, meat packing facilities began to shut down owing to the accelerated spread of the SARS-CoV-2 among workers. Furthermore, according to East Asia Forum, China accounts for about 25% of the global meat consumption. However, the link of the origin of the virus disrupted the demand for animal-source food in China. Consumers have cut back on grocery bills while supply systems have been disrupted. Also, people are avoiding eating meat products at outside eateries due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the demand for chicken meat may grow in the coming years with a surge in average income and urban population, resulting in a steady rise in consumption over the years.
Amick Farms; Foster Farms; JBS S.A.; Koch Foods; Mountaire Farms; Perdue Farms; PILGRIM'S; Sanderson Farms; Tyson Foods, Inc.; and Wayne Farms LLC are among well-established players in the global raw chicken meat market. The market players are adopting strategies such as product developments, plant expansions, and mergers and acquisitions to expand their footprint worldwide and meet the growing demand from end users.

The body also uses amino acids for building and repairing muscles and bones and for making enzymes and hormones. The consumption of protein promotes proper growth and development among children and teenagers. People consuming more protein tend to maintain bone mass better and have a much lower risk of fractures and osteoporosis. Thus, the rise in consuming protein rich food is fueling the growth of the raw chicken meat market.

The nutritional value and calorie count of a single chicken breast varies based on its size. Additionally, it is also dependent upon whether the chicken is pasture raised, free range, cage free, or caged.
