The production and consumption of meat has considerably increased worldwide over the years. Poultry meat has a higher demand among consumers, as it is less expensive compared to other meat products. Processed poultry meat is derived from the processing and treatment of raw poultry meat to prolong its shelf life and to enhance its taste. These processes includes use of chemical preservatives such as sodium nitrite. Processed poultry has gained higher acceptance over other meat, such as pork and beef, owing to high protein content and affordable price. Increased intake of poultry meat due its high protein content amongst health conscious individuals is a key factor boosting the growth of the market. Further, the growing demand for processed and convenience foods has significantly supplemented the growth of the processed poultry meat market. However, the increasing number of unorganized players and rising risk of avian diseases in poultry birds are the key factors restricting the market growth.
