Increasing demand for organic and grass-fed steaks

The increasing demand for organic and grass-fed steaks is a positive trend said to influence the growth of the market during the forecast period. The increasing awareness about the health benefits of organic food products is increasing the demand for organic steaks. Players in the market are coming up with new certified organic and grass-fed steaks to target potential consumers. Organic Prairie offers various organic steak products such as organic filet mignon, organic ribeye steak, organic sirloin steak, and others.

“The value-added benefits of grass-fed steaks, such as better taste and high nutritional values are increasing the demand for grass-fed steak. Grass-fed steaks are priced higher than regular steaks. Players in the market are coming up with new grass-fed steak products to cater to the increasing demand from the consumers,” says Manjunath Reddy, a lead analyst at Technavio for food research.

Introduction of new packaging methods

Another trend that is set to influence the growth of the market during the forecast period is the introduction of new packaging methods. Attractive and good-quality packaging improves the product visibility and helps to store the product for a longer period. New packaging designs also help manufacturers to market their products with attractive designs and captions effectively.

In September 2016, Greater Omaha Packing introduced a new TenderAge packaging technology that keeps refrigerated beef fresh up to 30 days. This technology allows the direct shipment of fresh beef steaks to consumers. In November 2016, Aldi introduced linerless labels for its new Specially Selected Aberdeen Angus steaks range.

Fluctuating prices of steaks

The fluctuating price of steaks is another trend that can influence the growth of the market during the forecast period. The price of steak depends on many factors such as meat production, environmental conditions, and disease outbreak among animals. The average price of beef steak decreased 3.5% in 2017 when compared to that of 2016.

“The increasing number of players in the market and the rising demand for high-quality steaks will affect the steak prices during the forecast period. The intense competition among players will force them to decrease the price of their product offerings, which will affect the growth of the global steak market and the revenue stream of the players,” says Manjunath.
