The global compound feed market is driven by growing meat and meat-based products consumption and industrialization in the livestock industry. The consolidation in the global meat industry along with push for scientific production systems will maintain a steady consumption of compound feed during the forecast period. The major factors restraining the growth of the compound feed market are competition for raw materials with other industries and susceptibility to volatility in agriculture market exposing the market to price fluctuations. The increasing amount of protest about the carbon emissions from livestock industry is a matter of serious concern for the compound feed industry. Continued expansion of organic meat and poultry markets is expected, increasing opportunities for organic feed.
Poultry is the fastest growing domain, especially in developing countries of Asia, South America and Africa. The high returns is the main reason for high adoption rate of the sector. Growing global acceptance for industrialized poultry farming, swelling meat demands and meat safety concerns, will maintain a steady demand for poultry feed. Globally surging demands and struggling supplies in the pork chain have resulted in stressed surroundings for the farmers. As profits in the sector are usually under pressure, optimizing feed and feeding programs has become important in order to maximize efficiency and optimize productivity. Aquafeed is the fastest growing segment in the global compound feed industry pushed by the increasing global demand for seafood and growing aquaculture farming practices.
The demand for meat protein is rising in Asia-Pacific region especially in China, India, Malaysia, Thailand etc. with rapid economic growth in the region. Increased adoption of intensive production systems to increase yield and productivity to cater to rising domestic demand of meat and meat products is expected to maintain a steady demand for compound feed in Asia. China is the largest consumer in the world accounting for around 18% of the global market. The Government’s target towards self-sufficiency to reduce dependency on meat imports is the major driving factor for growth in compound feed industry in Japan. Major players in Asia are focused on Thailand, Malaysia, India and Vietnam for business expansion and also create awareness among famers to increase demand.
North America accounts for around 25% of the global compound feed market. Compound feed market in North America is in late growth stage and the demand has been consistent since 2012. The characteristic moderate growth of late growth stage in the region triggers fights for market share. The intense rivalry has led to price discounting and new product innovations as the most adopted strategies.
Despite Africa’s huge demand for the feed, the region depends heavily on imported feed from the USA, Europe, Brazil and China. Africa has the fastest growing population with the highest birth rate in the world. Meat and fish are the most common animal proteins in African diets. Africa holds a great potential for the players looking for business expansion.
The global compound feed industry is highly fragmented at regional level and concentrated at global level. Little scope of differentiation in the products and low switching costs for buyers, has led to a price war in the industry especially among the key global players. Major players all over the globe are competing on the dimensions of product features, support services, delivery time and brand image to attract and retain customers thereby leading to zero-sum competition. A number of participants have been focusing on developing economies such as India, China, Brazil, and Argentina where high growth is anticipated. Cargill Inc., ForFarmers B.V., De Hues B.V., Nutreco N.V are the major players in the industry.
