During the period from 2008 to 2012, sales of poultry meat in the world increased by 12%: from 84 to 95 million tons. The indicator showed a positive trend even in crisis years. Its minimum increase compared to previous years was observed in 2009 - by 1%. The reason for such a slight increase in sales was the general deterioration of the world economic situation. In 2008-2012, the largest share in sales of poultry meat in the world was occupied by chicken meat, which accounted for an average of 88% of the total figure for the period. In the years under consideration, the share of turkey meat accounted for about 6% of sales, duck meat - 4%, goose and guinea flesh - 3% of all sales in the world. Other poultry meat accounted for the remaining 0.1% of sales.

In the coming years, a number of factors will serve to increase the demand for poultry meat in the world. First, the population will continue to grow. According to the International Monetary Fund, for the period from 2008 to 2012, the population of the countries of the world grew by 329 million people, amounting to 7 billion people in 2012. According to forecasts, in 2013-2017, the population will continue to grow and reach 7.4 billion people in 2017. Secondly, the driver of the market will be the growth of population income in developing countries. Thirdly, there is a shift in consumer preferences from beef and veal towards poultry meat, which is not only cheaper, but is also perceived as more useful, as it contains less fat.

BusinesStat estimates that in 2013-2017, sales of poultry meat in the world will continue to grow at an average of 3% per year. In 2017, they will reach 108 million tons, which will exceed the value of 2012 by 13%.
