Pune, India, Nov. 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global wagyu beef market size was USD 21.42 billion in 2021 and is projected to grow from USD 22.64 billion in 2022 to USD 34.87 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.37% during the forecast period 2022-2029.

The Wagyu beef market has experienced substantial growth and global recognition in recent years, driven by the increasing demand for premium and high-quality meat products.  Wagyu beef, a premium beef cut available in the market, is exclusively derived from cattle breeds native to Japan, including Japanese Black, Japanese Brown, Japanese Polled, and Japanese Shorthorn. Japan’s geographical isolation and its distinct regional climatic conditions have played a pivotal role in shaping these exceptional cattle breeds. Consequently, their genetic makeup has enabled the development of high levels of intra-muscular fat, resulting in a unique flavor profile that sets Wagyu beef apart from other cattle breeds.
