Key Highlights of the report

How are the major segments performing in the Saudi Arabia Meat Market?

  • The beef segment led the market in terms of type in 2021 and is expected to continue throughout the projection period. Most Saudi Arabian consumers prefer slow-cooked meat, such as beef, as it tastes better. Fresh beef is the most popular beef type in the country. The availability of fresh beef at the local butcher or supermarket shops contributes to its popularity.
  • In 2021, the fresh/chilled form segment held the largest market share due to the country's abundance of butcher shops and slaughterhouses, which made fresh/chilled meat accessible to a large consumer base. Fresh meat is regarded as being of higher quality. Customers can buy freshly cut meat immediately through an offline channel after the lockdown.
  • The convenience stores segment dominated the market in the distribution channel in 2021 and is expected to continue over the forecast period. Convenience stores have the largest market share owing to the availability of fresh and reasonably priced meat in these stores. Customers prefer reliable meat sources, as they only shop at certain convenience stores. Numerous slaughterhouses and their partnerships with convenience stores to exchange fresh meat support market expansion.

What is the competitive environment of the Saudi Arabia meat market?

The Saudi meat market is highly fragmented due to numerous dominant and minor key players. Due to aggressive import policies, foreign competitors from India, Pakistan, China, and other European nations also claim a sizeable market share. Key players are concentrating on online distribution channels to brand their products, increase their customer base, and broaden their geographic reach. For instance, The Organic Meat Company Ltd (TOMCL), a Pakistan-based meat processing business, disclosed in September 2021 that it had been awarded a USD 1 million contract to provide frozen meat to Saudi Arabia.

Executive Summary

How does increasing import activities for meat support market growth?

Meat production occasionally falls short of demand due to Saudi Arabia's high domestic meat consumption. Meat imports are increasing, which presents opportunities for international businesses to grow. In Saudi Arabia, where the meat market is rapidly expanding, France, Pakistan, Argentina, India, and the United States are among the major meat importers. Due to the intense and rapidly growing demand for meat in Saudi Arabia, chicken and sheep are two of the most frequently imported meats. The country's most widely consumed type of beef is fresh beef, with consumers favoring locally produced beef over processed and frozen beef imported. The vast majority of the country's edible meats are imported. Saudi Arabia started the National Industrial Development & Logistics Program-NIDLP to increase edible meat production between 2020 and 2025. It intends to strengthen food security by establishing a regional food hub to ensure that local manufacturers meet all food needs. Specialized manufacturing clusters would be established, connecting farmers, packaging plants, manufacturers, and retail businesses. This will allow the local edible meat processing sector to meet 85% of the local market demand for processed food items by 2030.

Such extreme measures might hinder the entry of new international competitors and ultimately constrain market growth.
