Feeding System Market Trends




  • Increasing population of cattle on farms drives of market growth




Market CAGR for feeding system is being driven by the increasing population of cattle on farms. Farmers have expanded the number of cattle on their farms in response to the steady increase in demand for meat and dairy products. The USDA estimates that there will be 9.4 million dairy cows in the United States in January 2020, and that the average size of dairy has expanded by more than 40% in the last decade. As a result, there is an increase in demand for cow feed.


Farmers make certain that cattle feed is used efficiently in order to avoid waste and boost profitability. As a result, they require complex automated feeding system models. As a result, the expanding cow population in farms will drive the global automated feeding systems market over the forecast period.


The impact of automation on dairy farming is enormous. Non-automated feeding systems accounted for roughly 25% of overall working time when compared to automated feeding systems. Automation improves labour efficiency and allows for data collecting making economic and animal welfare decisions. Automatic feeding systems ensure that feed is mixed and dispensed properly. By accurately feeding feed to animals in defined ratios, the adoption of such devices boosts dairy farm output. It also eliminates the risk of human error.


Another important driver is the agriculture industry's growing emphasis on animal welfare and sustainability. There is a growing demand for sustainably produced and ethically sourced food products as people become more cognizant of the environmental impact of their food choices. Farmers may meet these expectations with automated feeding systems, which provide a more humane and environmentally responsible manner of raising animals.


For instance, Some feeding systems can be set to dispense feed depending on each animal's particular nutritional needs, decreasing the risk of overfeeding and waste. Furthermore, certain systems can be combined with other technology, such as sensors and monitoring systems, to offer real-time data on the animals' health and well-being. This can assist farmers in identifying possible problems and taking corrective action before they become more problematic. Overall, the growing emphasis on animal welfare and sustainability is propelling growth in the Feeding System Market by opening up new avenues for creative and sustainable feeding solutions.


Feeding System Market Segment Insights:


Feeding System Offering Insights


The Feeding System Market segmentation, based on Offering includes Hardware, Software, and Services. In 2022, hardware held the majority of the product segment share. The hardware utilized in automated feeding systems is wearable equipment such as collars and radio frequency identification (RFID) tags with built-in sensors. Farms also have smart cameras and GPS systems installed to track and monitor livestock. These devices help with data collecting for livestock feeding, health monitoring, reproduction, nutrition quality, and other purposes. These data points enable farmers to make decisions about cow reproduction and the amount of grain to feed certain cattle. These sensors also aid in the monitoring of important illnesses in cattle and the prevention of disease spread on the farm.


Feeding System Product Insights


The Feeding System Market segmentation, based on Product, includes Self-Propelled System, Rail Guided System, and Conveyor Belt System. Over the forecast period, the conveyor belt system segment is expected to account for the bulk of the worldwide feeding systems market. Conveyor belts move feed from the storage tank or mixing vessel to the feeding region. To feed several animals, multiple conveyor belt machines can be coupled to livestock feeding systems. Pushers, which are part of conveyor livestock feeding systems, deliver the feed to the livestock. Automation is a possibility with conveyor livestock feeding systems. It permits precise and accurate feed distribution to farm areas. Several firms offer automated conveyor feeding systems for sale.


Feeding System End-User Insights


The Feeding System Market segmentation, based on end-user, includes Swine Farm, Equine Farm, Dairy Farm, and Poultry Farm. During the forecast period, the poultry farm category will gain a large market share. According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), global poultry meat consumption is anticipated to reach 150 million tons by 2029. During the projection period, the world population will increase demand for poultry meat, perhaps leading to an increase in the number of poultry LSUs. Because of the increasing demand for poultry feeding systems, prominent vendors are focusing on techniques such as mergers and acquisitions to expand their product portfolio.

DeLaval is a Swedish manufacturer of dairy and farming machinery that is part of the Tetra Laval company. The company employs around 4,500 people worldwide and had net annual sales of €1 billion in 2014. Gustaf de Laval (1845-1913) invented devices for the dairy industry beginning in the 1870s, including the first centrifugal milk-cream separator and early milking machines. In 1887, he patented his first separator, and in 1894, he patented his first milking machine. De Laval's cream separator was pushed internationally beginning in the early 1880s. The cream separator, for example, was introduced at the 1891 Dairy Show in London by the London-based Dairy Supply Co. In March 2023, DeLaval has unveiled the new robot as a module in its DeLaval Optimat total automated feeding solution. This all-in-one feeding solution handles everything from weighing, cutting, and mixing feed to delivering it to the feed table.


SCARA is a class of industrial robot. Selective Compliance Assembly Robot Arm or Selective Compliance Articulated Robot Arm is the abbreviation. The arm is slightly compliant in the X-Y direction but inflexible in the Z direction because to the SCARA's parallel-axis joint configuration, hence the phrase selective compliance. This is useful for a variety of assembly procedures, such as fitting a round pin into a round hole without binding. In April 2019, SCARA released a new Intelliflex feeding system that is combined with Intelliflex software and an Epson robot visual guide to provide low-cost feeding system solutions.
