REPORT SNAPSHOT

Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • High demand from downstream markets helped the industry maintain revenue growth
  • Exports have been volatile because of the discovery of diseases related to meat byproducts
  • Industry products will increasingly be used for biodiesel production
  • Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    The Rendering and Meat Byproduct Processing industry's prospects have fluctuated over the five-year period in line with volatile feed prices and increasing demand from downstream markets. Increased demand from animal production has helped promote industry growth, though considerable drops in the price of feed and other inputs have placed downward pressure on revenue in recent years, causing revenue to decline. The five years to 2022 are expected to present opportunities for growth in emerging markets for the industry. The good news is that animal fats and oils are most often the key ingredient used to produce these renewable energies, bolstering demand over the next five years.

    Industry Report - Starting a New Business Chapter

    The barriers to entry for the Rendering and Meat Byproduct Processing industry are high and steady. New entrants may have difficulty competing with established operators that have achieved a reputation for quality and have well-established relationships with consumers. Further, these companies have considerable resources to invest in research and development, new operating technologies and a high level of inputs in order to protect and grow their market share.

    Regulations may be a deterrent for new entrants. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) imposes stringent rules on substances prohibited from use in animal food or feed. The FDA estimates the rule will decrease the annual production of meat and bone meal (MBM) available for feed by about 15.0 mi
