Key Market Trends

Increase in demand for consumption Poultry products

According to the Canada Statistics, meat production is growing at a rate of 2.5%. Poultry meat is the primary driver for the growth of overall meat production, owing to its high demand, low production cost, and lower product prices. According to Canada Statistics, it has been stated that the production of poultry meat reached 0.78 million tonnes in 2018 and is expected to increase even more in the coming years. Owing to this increasing awareness about the role and dynamics of food nutrients, especially protein on overall physical and mental growth and development, there is a growing trend towards animal-sourced protein in the form of either meat, eggs, or milk. This drives the usage of feed additives in the feed as it increases its nutritional quality.

Increase in Canadian beef exports

An increase in the demand for consumption of livestock-based products is expected to drive the usage of feed additives in feed for the growth and development of farm animals. According to the Canadian Cattlemen's Association, Cannada produces approximately 1.3 million tonnes of beef annually. In 2018, USD 2.78 billion (0.35 million tonnes of beef was exported). Also, the beef consumption increased upto 5% i.e 0.95 million tonnes in 2018.

Competitive Landscape

The feed additives market in Canada is highly consolidated with various International companies occupying a major chunk of the market for various feed additive types. Local players account for minor shares in the market. International companies like Cargill, Nutreco, Novozymes occupy major shares in the market for amino acids, probiotics, vitamins, antioxidants, and mycotoxin detoxifiers. The regulatory framework for approval of feed additives and the small size of market segments are the major obstacles in the Canadian market. Since Antibiotics are banned all the leading players are focussing on better replacement and providing high quality feeds.
