Compound Feed Market Trends



  • Rising demand for sustainable feed is driving the market growth


Market CAGR for compound feed is being driven as consumers across the globe are highly concerned regarding the supply chain of feed as the impact of different feed ingredients may vary and depend highly on its origin and the way it is being produced. Also, the environmental impact of the livestock industry is becoming an important issue; hence, policymakers and retailers are turning their attention toward this industry. Therefore, farmers and feed manufacturers also focus on reducing the environmental impact both on the feed and the final protein while keeping minimum feed costs. For instance, in December 2020, BASF and Adifo Software entered into a partnership to launch a new digital solution, Opteinics (with BESTMIX feed formulation software). This new solution would help BASF to optimize feed formulation while supporting more sustainable animal protein production.


Additionally, increased demand for appropriate livestock nutrition drives the compound feed market revenue. Livestock continues to make an important contribution to the food chain. It is seen that energy fluctuation and imbalance in the metabolic process can induce various diseases and hamper livestock performance. The major reasons include inappropriate nutrition, overeating, and lack of physical activity. Compound feed is a careful mix of ingredients that provide a proper blend of carbohydrates from cereals, fat and protein from oilseeds, and fiber, which is highly valuable in animal nutrition. Feeding good-quality feed to animals, which includes grains like corn and barley, changes the color of carcass fat from yellow to white, which increases the chance of obtaining higher-quality meat for commercial purposes.


Furthermore, animal feed quality and safety are key factors in meeting the domestic demand for safe and high-quality foodstuffs of animal origin. Animal nutrition is key in the livestock industry and contributes significantly to nutrient-efficient livestock production. It also fosters the safety and dietary quality of animal products for human consumption by enhancing the animal health and welfare status of farm animals. Animal nutrition science also helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and land use linked to livestock production on a unit product base.


The increasing understanding of the health benefits of proteins on animal health has resulted in a significant demand for protein feeds such as animal protein meals, fish meals, bone meals, feather meals, blood meals, and other protein meals and feeds. Because livestock and farm animals play an important role in the food supply chain, demand for protein-rich and nutritious compound feeds is expected to rise during the forecast period. The ever increasing demand for protein-rich animal feeds to promote livestock growth at all stages of life is expected to drive the overall market.
