Sausage Casing Market Segmented By product type uch as Natural Casings, Synthetic Casings, Alternative Casings with Distribution Channel such as Direct Sales (B2B), Indirect Sales (B2C)
Sausage casing is a mixture of ground beef, seasoning, fat and fillers that is filled into a casing and tied at breaks to make individual joints. Conventionally, link sausage is filled into natural casings made from animal intestines, but artificial casings are also on the rise in this market.
Nowadays, synthetic casings are used in most commercially available sausages. The natural casings include intestines that comes from sheep, pigs, goat, cattle, and horse sometimes. The natural casings are preferred more because of the benefits such as richness and deeper flavor. This market is expanding on the base of growing meat production and consumption and increasing westernization.
Casings have been used over the years in the production of Sausages and processed meats. They are mostly minced meat mixes put together by the casings during further processing steps such as boiling, roasting, smoking and more. In years past, sausage making was confined to the number of available animal intestines.
With the development of cellulose, collagen, and fibrous sausage casings, the production of sausage is now only limited to the accessibility of raw materials. Though, in several parts of the world, proper manufacturing of this from animal intestines is not known. Thus, synthetic sausage casings are leading. Also, growing concerns for animals could hinder the natural sausage casings and give a boost to synthetic sausage casings.
