North America was the initial markets for the feed pelletizing agents industry. In 1930's feed pelletizing began in North America. Feed pellets are identified as more productive in terms of digestion, weight gain and consumption. The feed pelletizing agents market in 2015 is $XX million dollars. It is expected to grow to $XX million by 2020 with a CAGR of XX% in the forecast period 2015-2020.

High consumption of meat and meat products in North America has pressurized the livestock farmers to meet the demands of consumers. Moreover, changing dietary patterns and shifting towards rich source of proteins like meat and processed meat has driven the market for feed. With growing industrialization, the market for pellet feed is escalating, as their shelf life is longer, ease of handling, prevents wastage, high feed intake and high conversion ratio. All these factors have driven the market for pelletizing agents.

Poultry is one of the major consumers of pellet feed, as the performance is improved with high feed intake and digestibility. Moreover, pet food also accounts for a considerable share in the market. Pet owners are lack of time spending on the pets, this directed them towards the dry food as they are easy to absorb and cheaper than wet food.

Lignin and starch are the majorly used agents in North American Market. North American companies produce potato starch, cornstarch, and Lignin in considerable amounts. Growing demand for organic or natural products and health safety conscious in USA and Canada, the demand for naturally derived agents are gaining the popularity among the pelletizing agents. Bentonite, which is a natural feed pelletizing agent is largely produced in USA and Canada. USA is the largest producer of Bentonite with nearly one-third of world's production.

Added costs in processing ingredients for feed pelletizing are a restraint for the market. Availability of cheaper sources in China is directing the producers towards it, which is lagging the growth of market in North American Region. High investment plans in R&D department is creating chances for the growth of market. Bentonite production continues in uptrend and contributes to feed pelletizing agent market growth.

BASF, Uniscope Inc, Borregaard LignoTech, Bentonite Performance Minerals, Archer Daniels Midland Company are some of the major players in the market. Expansion is the major strategy adapted by the firms and they continue to invest in their research & development activities.
