The Artificial Casings Market is expected to reach $5.14 billion by 2029, at a CAGR of 6.6% from 2022 to 2029. The shift towards artificial casings has been predominantly driven by the increase in global meat consumption and production, the growing preference for artificial casings among sausage manufacturers, operational challenges, and the rising number of foodservice chains.
Furthermore, the increasing demand from developing countries in Southeast Asia, Latin America, and Africa and the emergence of vegetarian sausage casings are expected to create lucrative opportunities for players operating in this market. However, consumers’ preference for natural sausage casings over artificial sausage casings is expected to hinder the growth of this market to a notable extent.
