Market Synopsis

The Global Blood Meal Market is growing at a moderate pace. Blood meal is a valuable protein source and is, therefore, used in animal feed. It is a dry, inert powder made from the blood collected during the slaughter of livestock. Of all the animal waste from slaughterhouses, blood is the highest pollutant. However, the protein content in blood is around 18%; therefore, to avail of the valuable protein content and lower the pollution from animal slaughter, efforts have been made to ensure the proper utilization of animal blood on a large scale.

The amino acid profile of the protein in blood meal is similar to the ideal protein ratio as the lysine content is very high as compared to other food proteins such as bone meal and meat meal. Thus, blood meal is used as an alternative protein source in various animal diets for dairy cattle, beef cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry, and other species where protein is an important factor. The efficient utilization of such by-products has a direct impact on the economy and environmental pollution. These factors are expected to boost the demand for blood meal in the animal feed industry.

Blood meal can also be used as a high-nitrogen organic fertilizer as it contains highs amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, thus spurring demand by fertilizer manufacturers.
