Key Market Trends

Increasing Feed Production Drives the Market

According to Statistics Denmark, in 2016 milk production in Denmark has increased from 5,454.96 million kg to 5,693.89  million kg in 2018. The increase in the production of milk indicates better effectiveness of cattle feed and an increase in livestock numbers in the region. Both situations favor the increase in demand for feed premix products in the market.​ According to the European Feed Manufacturer's Federation (FEFAC), in 2018, the industrial compound feed production for farmed animals in the region reached an estimated level of 163.3 million metric tons a 1.8% higher than in 2017. Furthermore, in 2018, Germany, Spain, and France remain the three leading countries in terms of total compound feed production with 23.84 million metric tons, 24.25 million metric tons, and 20.84 million metric tons respectively. Germany is the leading cattle and pig feed producer with 7 million metric tons and 9.5 million metric tons of production. while France maintains its leading position as poultry feed producer with 8.6 million metric tons. The growing production of livestock coupled with increasing feed production will drive the market for feed premix.
