Feed Minerals Market Analysis

The global feed minerals market is projected to register a CAGR of 6.5%, over the forecast period (2020-2025).

  • Minerals are additives included in the animal feed for optimal growth, development, overall health, and well-being, and for the prevention of diseases in the livestock. Essential trace elements and minerals that are not adequately produced in the body need to be added in the feed externally for better standards and quality of animal-derived products.
  • Increasing industrialization of livestock production to meet the increasing demand for animal protein sources is driving the greater focus on optimum nutrition of farm animals, and this trend is expected to provide robust growth to the global feed minerals market, over the forecast period.

Feed Minerals Industry Segments

The global feed minerals market is segmented by type into microminerals and macrominerals, and by animal type into ruminants, poultry, swine, aquaculture, and other animal types. The market is segmented by geography to include the key trends across major markets in North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa.

Feed Minerals Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Feed Minerals Market according to our research experts:

Increasing Micronutrient Deficiencies

Microminerals occupy a major share of the global feed minerals market, when segmented by type. Microminerals include chromium, cobalt, copper, fluorine, iodine, iron, manganese, molybdenum, selenium, and zinc. The analyses of pastures for microminerals are needed periodically for healthy livestock and animals. Additionally, deficiency may lead to anemia and increased susceptibility to infections. Thus, this may further increase the demand for microminerals in the feed industry. During intensive culture in countries, like Vietnam, fluctuating environmental and water quality conditions can lead to the development of stress situation, which can only be tackled by the inclusion of microelements present in minerals. Thus, this has led to the growing demand for minerals in compound feed used by farmers. These feed, including minerals, are used by farmers in pelleted form, as supplementary feeds. The companies active in the market are engaged in various product innovations to cater to the growing demand for microminerals, globally. For instance, Micronutrients USA and Kemin Industries partnered to introduce IntelliBond® VITAL 5 Cr, which has six trace minerals to the support dairy and beef cattle performance. The inclusion of this product in the Kemin’s product portfolio may provide various growth opportunities for the minerals segment, during the forecast period.

Feed Minerals Market Revenue Share By Type

Asia-Pacific Leads the Global Market

Feed production in the Asia-Pacific region suffered a minor setback in 2019, on account of the spread of African Swine Fever, especially in China and the Southeast Asian countries. However, the market remains the largest geogaphic segment in the global feed minerals market. 

In China, the animal feed additive industry, currently, is heavily influenced by the governmental initiatives. The country’s efforts to modernize and find efficiencies in its structure and practices, and the increasing demand for meat and animal products to meet the protein needs of the growing population are among the major factors driving the growth of the animal feed additives market. 

India is the largest milk producing country, globally. However, milk yields per cow are low, with Indian farmers relying on raw crop residues, such as cotton cake or husks, for feeding their animal. To improve the animal productivity, in order to meet the growing demand for milk, the demand for processed feed is likely to increase in the coming years, thereby, propelling the demand for feed additives in the country.

With a large and growing production base of livestock and a large feed production capacity, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to remain the largest market for Feed Minerals, over the forecast period.
