Germany is one of the major compound feed markets in Europe. Increased consumption of raw meat and processed meat, and rising health consciousness among consumers, are driving the demand for compound feed in the country. The German economy grew at a consistent CAGR of 1.3%, reaching a total GDP of EUR 2,903,220 million in 2014. The total animal output decreased slightly, from EUR 25,334 million in 2013 to about EUR 24,975.2 million in 2014. This reduction did not reflect in the total income derived, which showed a rise of about 2.3% from EUR 17,622 million in 2013 to about EUR 18,032.2 million in 2014.
Swine feed is the biggest segment in the German compound feed industry. Manufacturers are focused on increasing production to cater to the domestic as well as European market. Germany is also the largest market in Europe for organic and naturally derived products, and the second largest in the world. Such products are viewed as a status symbol and as signs of conscious consumerism, a key driver for the sales in the region.
Highly industrialized, German culture has also contributed to the growth of phytogenics, filling the supply void created by the ban on antibiotics as growth promoters. The market has witnessed a significant drop after the 2002 Nitrofen scandal, leading to an increase in ingredient regulation. It recorded a revenue of USD XX million in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.2% during the period 2017-2022.
