Key Market Trends

Increased Demand For Compound Feed

According to AllTech feed survey, In 2019, the total compound feed production is 70 million metric ton out of which 32.1 million metric ton is for broilers, 17.0 million metric ton for swine, 7.0 million metric ton for layers, 6.2 million metric ton for dairy cows, 2.6 million metric ton for beef, 2.8 million metric ton for pets, 0.59 million metric ton for Equine and 1.2 million metric ton for aqua. The compound feed market in Brazil has faced few challenges in 2018, such as increasing food costs, higher grain prices, and agricultural resources, which are initiated by the United States and China. The tie breaks between the United States and Brazil have affected the compound feed market in Brazil. Demand for the high-quality compound feed from the livestock industry, due to increased industrial production of meat and dairy products has elicited the growth in consumption of compound feed and feed additives. The raw materials used for compound feed production, such as maize, barley, soybean, are used for human consumption and production of ethanol. In this scenario, the feed industry competes with the food industry for raw materials.

Increased Meat Consumption

The demand for the higher value and quality foods, such as meat, eggs, and milk, has increased compared to plant-originated foods, such as cereals, owing to the rising demand for greater food varieties and protein intake. These changes in consumption, together with sizeable population growth, have led to large increases in the total demand for animal products in many developing countries. Furthermore, this trend is expected to continue in the coming years. Due to the decline in prices of meat and meat products, developing countries are beginning to consume a large quantity of meat, at a much lower level of the gross domestic product than industrialized countries did two to three decades back. Urbanization has led to increased demand for meat and milk products in cities compared to the rural areas. Cities have varied diets, rich in animal protein and fat. Studies showed that compound feeds have increased the weight of broilers by 30%, as compared to traditional feeds. Thus, the rising demand for Meat products may boost the global compound feed market, during the forecast period.
