LONDON, Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

The US Meat Market: What Consumers Eat and Why?

Product Synopsis

This report provides the results for the US Meat market from Canadean's unique, highly detailed study of consumers' Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) consumption habits, and forms part of an overall series covering all CPG product markets. Its coverage includes, but is not limited to, consumption behaviors, the extent to which consumer trends influence their consumption, the value of the market these trends influence, and brand and private label choices as well as organized retailer choices. Much of this information can also be analyzed by specific consumer groups, providing hard and fast data on consumers and markets at the product category level.

Introduction and Landscape

Why was the report written?
Marketers in the Meat market face a major challenge. Understanding market size and segmentation is valuable, but the key to effective targeting is knowing just how valuable specific consumer groups are, and being able to quantify the impact of consumer trends. This data report solves these problems by providing survey-based data on consumer trends and consumer groups, and market data which show the exact size of consumer groups, how much of the Meat market they account for, and which consumer trends drive their behavior.

What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
Economic pressures have had a real effect on people's shopping budgets and meat marketers will now need to align products with Consumer Trends and seek out the marketing sweet spots in order to maximize future growth.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
Consumers' uptake of products and the influence of consumer trends are fundamental causes of change in markets - making knowing what these trends are and the extent of their influence crucial. The survey-based data provided in this report examines over 20 consumer trends that affect the market and examines the share of consumption across 26 consumer groups. This data provides a detailed insight into exactly who the consumer is and just how much impact the latest consumer trends are having.

What makes this report unique and essential to read?
The data provided is unique in the market as it tracks consumer behavior through to its actual value impact on a product market. This provides readers with a unique data analysis of the market, allowing marketing tactics and strategy to be updated in line with the very latest consumer behaviors.

Key Features and Benefits

Consumer data, based upon proprietary surveys and then consumer group tracking and modeling for the following specific categories: ambient meat, chilled raw packaged meat- processed, chilled raw packaged meat- whole cuts, cooked meats- packaged, and frozen meat markets.

Detailed consumer segmentation covering over 26 consumer groups, 20 consumer trends, and consumption frequency for each product category.

Consumer penetration for brands and private labels, based upon the original survey and then subsequent consumer tracking and modeling.

Unique retailer choice data at the product category level, based upon the original survey and then subsequent consumer tracking and modeling.

Key Market Issues

A large share of consumers cite the Busy Lives trend as an influence on their behavior and this is having a real influence on what they actually consume. However, this is not the only trend affecting the market and marketers will need to be aware of which other trends to target in order to maximize sales values.

Sheer demographics mean that consumers over the age of 55 account for a major share of the market. Marketers seeking to maximize sales will need to ensure that their propositions are just as relevant to these consumers as those in younger demographics.

Overall, the Meat market appears to be losing consumers once they enter into adulthood, with consumption frequencies not recovering to rates seen amongst minors until they reach 45 years old. This may be due to lack of cooking skills or affordability, but this consumer loss is holding back total volume sales.

Key Highlights

While the share of Private Label varies greatly by category, with its penetration level ranging between a little over 30% to around 55%, overall it does have a strong presence in the market. Branded manufacturers will need to work hard to maintain their positions, especially if they are not the market leaders.

Market valuation shows that Frozen Meat from the Counter has the largest value share of more than 27% in the overall meat market. Fresh meat (counter) and Raw Packaged Meat- whole cuts are other big market segments.

Retailer analysis shows that the retail Meat market is split evenly between the larger retailers and smaller retailers. However, the top four or five retailers account for almost 60% of the market, and for any manufacturer or supplier seeking to achieve significant scale in the country, establishing effective relationships with these retailers will be vital.
