Cultured meat is produced by using tissue engineering techniques instead of using slaughtered animals as a source of meat. Also known as cellular agriculture, which develops meat from animal cells. Cultured meat is eco-friendly and reduces greenhouse gas as compared to the regular meat slaughtering process. The market will register a high growth rate between 2021-2026 due to the growing consumption of nutritional meat globally. The growing demand for alternative protein food, rapid advancements in cellular technologies, increasing investments by key players, and stringent rules on regular animal slaughtering methods are the primary factors driving the market growth for cultured meat. However, high set cost and growing consumption of plant-based protein are hampering the market growth.
Based on the source, the market is segregated into beef, pork, poultry, seafood, and duck among others.

The rapid growth in retail food chains such as KFC, Burger King, McDonald's, and Subway among others is boosting the market. The easy availability of nuggets in the supermarkets, marts, convenience stores, and hypermarkets are also supporting the market growth.
