Key Market Trends
Increasing Demand for Dairy and Meat Products
Livestock is a major factor responsible for the growth of the alfalfa hay market. The annual growth of meat production and milk production in the developing countries is projected to be 2.4% and 2.5%, respectively, till 2030. This is expected to increase the share of the developing countries in the world’s meat production to 66.0%, which will be 247.0 million metric ton, and to 55.0% for milk production, which will be 484.0 million metric ton. Furthermore, there has been immense pressure on the livestock sector to meet the increasing demand for high-value animal protein. The demand for alfalfa hay is increasing significantly in China and is driven due to changing production practices in the Chinese dairy industry. This is essentially due to the increasing number of cows raised by modern dairy farmers who prefer using imported hay and commercial feeds. Furthermore, the Chinese government is focusing on boosting the domestic production of alfalfa hay to meet its high demand. The dairy sector is essentially boosting the demand for alfalfa hay in China. The country has about 15 million cows in the dairy industry, among which 1.5 million are high producers (nine-ton annual milk yield).
