In terms of up-and-coming markets, Latin America is showing signs of having the most upside, with Brazil leading the pack during the survey’s forecasted period.

Not unlike the US, a rise in popularity of chicken-based sausage and hot dog products are on the rise worldwide as more consumers are opting for poultry over red meat because of the perception that it is a healthier option. Among younger consumers, the popularity of specialized products, including organically produced hot dogs and sausages are on the rise.
