This urbanization trend contributes significantly towards improved living standards and rising incomes which in turn influence the affordability of sausage and processed meat products to a greater extent, thus leading to the significant increase in the meat and sausages consumption and production across the North America.
According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), in 2015, the average American adult consumed 90 kilograms (198.5 pounds) of meat, while the global average during that same year was 34 kilograms (75 pounds). By 2024, these numbers are projected to increase to 94.1 kilograms (207.5 pounds) per person in the U.S.; Also, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), in the U.S., the total red meat and poultry production was up by 2.6% in 2015, and up by 3.1% in 2016, and up another 2.9% in 2017. Therefore, increasing population, urbanization, meat consumption, and production across the North America have direct impact on the increased demand of natural sausage casings from sausage manufacturers and meat producers around the North America.
