For the last decade, the United States shipped about seven billion pounds of broiler exports each year.
Broiler refers to chickens of meat-type strains raised specifically for meat production. The United States exports significantly more broilers than it imports. The country exports turkey meat as well, with the volume of turkey exported from the United States in 2021 amounting to about 550 million pounds based on a carcass weight equivalent. The vast majority of U.S. turkey exports go to Mexico, which imported about 67 percent of the United States' turkey exports.
Within the United States, consumers purchase a large amount of meat products. The chicken was the second most frequently bought fresh meat category, with sales of 13.4 billion U.S. dollars. Chicken breasts were the most popular cut, comprising over 60 percent of product sales. Chicken sales growth in the U.S. were positive by 4.7 percent for 2021. Both chicken and turkey sausages are expected to increase in dollar sales and sales volume by 2023, perhaps as many people find chicken and turkey sausages to be the healthiest type of encased meat products.
