Growing Demand for Natural Feed
Natural feed pelletizing agents are the dominating products in the market. They are favored by the farmers, due to growing demand for naturally derived products. Regulations against synthetic products have created an opportunity for natural products to spur the growth of market. Lignin has the major market share in the feed pelletizing agents market. It is a natural polymer extracted from the plant pulp. It is rich in wood and low in straw. When lignin is treated with high temperature and pressure, it softens and binds to the raw material, thus to form into the shape of pellet. As the pellets come out of the pellet machines, the lignin will be cooled down and then enable the pellets to become firm and compact. High binding capacity of lignin has driven the market. Dietary inclusion of wheat can increase pellet durability, due to high protein and hemi-cellulose content of it. Wheat takes significant share as pelletizing agent.
Growing Demand for Fish Feed
The demand for seafood is driving the meat industry as an increasing number of individuals are becoming aware of the health benefits of fish consumption. Fish are low in fats, cholesterol, and carbohydrates and are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which help protect the heart. Fish also provides the essential vitamins and amino acids. According to the UN, global consumption of fish has hit an average of 21.3 kg per person in 2016. FAO report states that the world per-capita fish consumption increased from an average 14.4 kg in the 1990s to 20.2 kg in 2015. The human fish consumption has grown at a CAGR of 14.6% during 2012-2018. Fish feed is mostly preferred as pellet form as they float in water for a long time, which is easy for fish to digest and absorb. This makes the fish feed to hold a considerable share in the feed pelletizing agent market.
