Meat Plastic Casing Market: An Overview
Meat plastic casing is used to cover the meat products to protect them and provide a longer duration of life. Meat plastic casings are nowadays used in commercially available meat products. In comparison to natural casings which provide richness and deep flavour to the product, plastic casings provide longevity to the meat. Casings are used over decades in the production of sausages and processed meats. In developing nations, the manufacturing of casings from animal intestines is not feasible. Therefore, plastic and synthetic casings are leading the market. Moreover, growing concerns over animals and strict regulations hinder the usage of natural casings, which in turn provide an exponential push to the usage of meat plastic casings. In 2017, Kalle GmbH, a German company that is a key player in the meat plastic casing market produced a new product known as ‘Roasted Flavored Casing’ which provides the product with a crispy appearance. Due to all these factors, the meat plastic casing market is anticipated to grow during the forecast period.

In western cuisines, the majority of casings are derived from pigs, intestines of goats, cattle or sometimes even horses. The global meat casing market is dominated by North America, followed by Europe during the forecast period. Rising consumption of processed meat in the APAC region will give an astronomical boost to the meat plastic casing market. Significant number of global players have joined the meat plastic casing market in the last five years, which has tremendously increased the competition as well as helping the market growth. Moreover, certifications provided by HALAL and KOSHER to major players are expected to augment the sales of meat plastic casings in the retail sector. The availability of the different types of plastic casings in the market such as films, shrink bags and tubular casings have risen the standards and variety among the producers and consumers to choose the desired casing according to the requirement. The usage of plastic casings will improve the look of the product and attract the consumer to purchase it. These different types of plastic casings provide excellent shelf-life, bone puncture resistance, transparency and printability to the processed meat providing number of additions to the product portfolio of manufacturers.

Meat Plastic Casing Market: Regional Outlook
The North American region is expected to lead the global market in demand for meat plastic casing due to the ever-increasing demand for a different kind of meat that is transported and consumed across the region. The exponential rise in usage of proper plastic casings for meat has been due to regulations set according to section 416 of the Food and Drug Administration, the U.S.A. which restricts producers to provide proper hygiene and safeguard the food products in transition. This will boost the demand for meat plastic casing in the region. Europe remains the second-largest user of meat plastic casings, as several producers are more focused on providing an ideal and safe product for its consumer to use. Apart from this APAC region is deemed to be the fastest-growing market for meat plastic casings due to the increase in awareness among the general public about safeguards in food habits. This is primarily due to developing nations such as India and China, where the consumption of meat has risen momentarily. Moreover, the Latin America and MEA region are anticipated to offer an instrumental rise in growth for the meat plastic casing market with the overall development of different types of meat products being consumed in these regions.
