The global cultured meat market is estimated to be valued at USD 214 million in 2025 and is projected to reach USD 593 million by 2032, recording a CAGR of 15.7% from 2025 to 2032 in the normal scenario.
Cultured meat is a part of the emerging cellular agriculture technology. This technology involves developing animal-based products such as meat, eggs, and milk without the involvement of animals. Innovations in cellular agriculture are expected to boost the demand for cultured meat products in the future. However, the cultured meat technology is still in its R&D phase; companies engaged in this field claim that by 2021, the products will be available in the market.
North America is projected to lead the market due to high investments and the advanced technological platforms available at its disposal for R&D. JUST, Inc. is one of the key players in the cultured meat market. The growth of this market is attributed to the startups that are entering the cultured meat market, owing to the increasing number of investors, such as Cargill and Tyson Foods.
Since cultured meat is grown in the laboratory, it is a cost-intensive process, and hence, requires large investments to accelerate the R&D activities so that the products are commercialized in the market in the near future. Various other factors that are expected to drive the cultured meat market globally include the rising inclination toward animal welfare and environmental sustainability. However, the high cost involved with the production of cultured meat is expected to restrain market growth. In this report, the cultured meat market has been studied based on source, end-use, and region.
