The animal produce industry includes raising animals (and insects) for sale and production of meat and other products. The establishments in the industry are involved in the production of meat, raising of live animals, production of skin and hide, extraction of wool, and production of honey, milk and eggs.
The global animal produce market was valued at $3877.7 billion in 2017. Asia Pacific was the largest geographic region accounting for $1717.88 billion or 44.3% of the global market. China was the largest country accounting for $749.72 billion or 19.33% of the global market.
Companies in the meat processing industry are turning to robotics to maximize production efficiency. Robotic systems automate deboning, cutting, butchering, and monitoring processes in meat production. This decreases cycle times and increases throughput. Automation helps to improve plant conditions, reduce contamination, and makes meat processing safer for workers as well as consumers. Plants with fixed automation systems can increase yields by at least 2-3% over workers
