Global Cage Free Eggs Market foresees a huge demand for large eggs
Cage free eggs is a legal term that varies greatly depending on the country of origin. In general, cage-free eggs contain a larger yolk and a rich source of nutrients ideal for human consumption. These eggs are a healthier alternative to traditional mass-produced poultry eggs. Cageless chickens produce omega-3 fatty acids, which makes the product important compared to traditional eggs. As supply dynamics change and economies of scale take hold, the market should experience lower prices. This, combined with the increase in free-range cage egg products, is expected to drive higher demand during the forecast period.
The Animal Equality, an animal welfare company based in Pune confirmed that several companies in the hospitality sector had begun sourcing eggs from free-range chickens to end the cruelty inflicted birds in poultry farms. The animal rights group welcomes the shift to cage-free farm eggs.
Market Drivers and Restraints:
The market is witnessing strong consumer demand for large eggs. Large size is expected to remain dominant as the natural variety of eggs remains relatively expensive and consumer awareness remains low as well. The free-range egg cage market also relies heavily on the one-stop shopping experience to drive demand. There is a growing awareness from local farmers or through non-store-based experiences, but it is still lagging as a distribution channel. White eggs are expected to continue to dominate during the forecast period due to the shorter maturation period and ease of operation.
