Animal Feed Market Analysis by Form

Based on form, the animal feed market is segregated into pellets, crumbles, mash, and others. Feed products in pellets form are widely preferred by livestock farmers as they are easily digestible by farm animals. Also, pellets feed is easy to carry and store; hence, the majority of feed manufacturers provide feed pellets. Many of the animals can be fed with pellets since they have a higher nutritional density, a more complete diet, and more economic advantages. In addition, these pallets are easier to store and carry than conventional roughage, and the animals can digest, assimilate, and conserve them better. Pure forage (grass) feed pellets, concentrated feed pellets, complete diet feed pellets, and premix feed pellets are the four main forms of animal feed pellets. Using a grinding device, feed pallets can be created by grinding maize and soya bean meal or other components into a fine powder, which can then be combined with wheat bran, bone meal, microelements, vitamins, and other basic materials to create the whole feed mesh. This is likely to drive the segmental growth of the market in the upcoming years.

Global Animal Feed Market Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific accounted for the largest animal feed market share and is expected to remain the leading consumer of animal feed in the coming years. The dominance of the region is a result of high levels of animal production and high levels of meat consumption brought on by high incomes. The top three feed users in the area are China, India, and Indonesia. The demand for meat, fish and dairy products is high due to the economy's rapid growth, and this has caused these goods' consumption to increase quickly. The local meat and dairy industries are expanding to keep up with the high growth rate in consumption, which causes feed consumption to rise very quickly.

North America and Europe are expected to follow the Asia Pacific in terms of compound feed market share. With a considerable demand for cattle and poultry, the United States has the largest feed market in North America. In 2017, American meat producers produced 42.2 billion chicken, 25.6 billion pork, and 26.3 billion pounds of beef, according to the North America Meat Institute (NAMI). The country's feed market is driven by high meat production, high demand, and high livestock production.

European cattle owners have a significant need for plant-based feed. The great majority of crops produced in Europe are utilized as animal feed. The region is overproducing meat and dairy, with EU production of chicken, pig, and beef being 8%, 16%, and 4% greater than consumption, respectively, and production of dairy being 14% higher than consumption, according to Eurostat's 2018-2019 report.

Global Animal Feed Market Dynamics

Animal Feed Market Driver

  • Large-scale animal farming aids in supplying the major opportunity for livestock-derived products. Farm animals perform a significant economic and social function in addition to contributing to food production. Worldwide, a large number of small-scale farmers still rely on cattle for their livelihoods. The livestock industry supports the livelihoods of 1.3 billion people worldwide, according to the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), accounting for close to 40% of global agricultural output in rich countries and 20% in developing countries. Additionally, 34% of the world's supply of food protein comes from the animal industry.
  • Demand for animal products has increased as a result of changing diets, rising incomes, and expanding populations. Animal goods like milk, eggs, and meat have become more prevalent in recent years. According to FAO, North America consumed 97 kg of meat per person between 2018 and 2020, compared to the global average of 34 kg. The least meat-eating regions are Africa and Asia-Pacific, where per capita intake is 27 kg and 13 kg, respectively. In addition, although milk consumption in Australia and New Zealand was 99 kg and 109 kg, respectively, it was just 64 kg in the United States in 2020. Therefore, the increase in animal production is projected to increase the demand for compound feed and the huge demand for animal products.

Animal Feed Market Restraint

  • The global rise in raw material prices and the stricter government requirements in industrialized nations have a significant impact on the expansion of the compound feed business. The kind and quantity of feed raw materials used in animal feed are heavily influenced by their cost and nutritional value. The production, nutrient content, and price of plant-based raw materials like corn, soybeans, and others are significantly impacted by changes in the weather. With every change in the production and consumption of animals and their products, respectively, the cost of meals made from animal byproducts also varies.

Global Animal Feed Key Market Trends

  • Consumers are very concerned about the feed supply chain since the effects of various feed ingredients can range greatly depending on where they come from and how they are manufactured. Additionally, the environmental impact of the cattle business is becoming a significant problem, thus legislators and retailers are focusing on this industry. As a result, farmers and feed manufacturers work to keep feed prices as low as possible while lowering the environmental impact of both the feed and the finished protein. For instance, BASF and Adifo Software partnered to introduce Opteinics, a new digital solution, in December 2020. (with BESTMIX feed formulation software). This innovative approach would facilitate more sustainable animal protein production while assisting BASF in feed formulation optimization.
  • Additionally, the popularity of high-protein diets is driving up the demand for animal protein on a global scale. The rising need for animal proteins suggests that the importance of feed will rise in the years to come. Additionally, feed is a crucial component of animal husbandry's sustained growth. As a result, increasing the production of animal protein would also raise the production of feed for sustainable animal production.
