The livestock industry in Australia is vital to the rural communities and national economy. The industry has been the net exporter of livestock and livestock products for over a century. The favorable economic conditions in Asia, which is a major export destination, and consequent changes in dietary patterns in favor of animal protein consumption is projected to maintain strong demand for meat and meat products from Asia over coming years. The challenge for the livestock sector in Australia is to expand productivity and improve the quality of livestock products overcoming limited natural resources and highly variable climate to maintain a competitive advantage in exports market. The Government and the supply chain partners across livestock industry are focused on technological innovations in production systems and use of balanced compound feed to enhance productivity and to prevent livestock diseases. The compound feed market in terms of volume in Australia is projected to grow at the CAGR of 1.9% during the period under review.

The poultry industry in Australia is focused on fulfilling domestic demand. The quarantine constraints on the imports of poultry meat and eggs reduces the competitive pressure of international players on the local farmers. The egg industry is largely fragmented whereas the chicken meat sector is consolidated with few players accounting for more than 80% of the market share. The consumption of both meat and eggs has been witnessing a steady rise y-o-y. Integrated systems, Government support and steadily rising consumer demand is expected to maintain a healthy growth rate of the poultry industry, maintain a parallel consumption growth rate for poultry feed.

The Australian beef industry relies largely on pasture-based production systems. The beef production levels have gradually increased despite comparatively static cattle numbers due to improved production systems. The decrease in domestic per capita consumption has led to shift in focus towards export markets. Around 65% of the beef produced is exported. With the growing importance to exports, the intensive production systems relying on compound feed are replacing the pasture fed production systems. Industrialized production system is expected to maintain a steady demand for ruminant feed.

The pig industry has transitioned from being an allied sector of dairy farms to a large-scale, highly productive industrialized sector. The industry has been facing competition from low cost imported pig meat since last 2 decades. The competitive pressure has ensued structural changes in the industry such as increased size of the operations to capture economies of scale and focusing on specialized markets. As a result, the industry has few very large-scale operations at one end and also a collection of smaller operations catering the rural area. Adoption of pig welfare standards and promotion of Australian pork to reduce imports has led to increased consumption of pork feed. The pressure to increase output will maintain a steady demand for compound feed for the coming years.

Aquaculture is the fastest growing primary industry in Australia. The industry is spread throughout Australia and has become an important sector for economic development. The demand for seafood has been rising exponentially in Australia as well as internationally. The Australian aquaculture industry is focused on meeting domestic demand and mainly catering to the exports market. The objective of the industry is to position the locally produced aquaculture products as safe, sustainable and high quality products, to gain competitive advantage in the exports market. The strong growth in the aquaculture industry is expected to be reflected in the Aquafeed industry which is projected to grow at the CAGR of 1.9% during the forecast period.
