Key Market Trends

Increase in Production of Meat and Meat Products

The growing demand for high-grade meat and meat products from health-conscious consumers has spurred the production of meat, hence boosting the liquid feed supplement market, globally. Owing to the advantages such as better digestibility in animals, simplified and flexible addition of additives, and the possibility of fermentation, the demand for liquid feed supplements is rising rapidly to aid the production of high-quality meat. According to the OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook for the period 2018-2027, the total production of meat has increased from 317.1 million metric tons in 2016 to 330.5 million metric tons in 2018. Furthermore, the Economic Research Services, US Department of Agriculture, reports that the total consumption of beef in the United States has increased from 53.9 pounds per capita in 2015 to 57.2 pounds per capita in 2018 and is projected to further rise steadily over the coming years. With vitamins, minerals and feed additives as part of the composition, a liquid feed supplement is an emerging economical source of balanced nutrition to livestock, to cater to the growth of livestock production worldwide.

Asia-Pacific Dominates the Liquid Feed Supplement Market

Asia-Pacific dominates the global market for liquid feed, accounting for more than half the share in the overall market in 2018. The countries in the region are driving the liquid feed market owing to changing consumption patterns towards more protein-based products including meat. China is one of the fastest-growing markets, with the country's Feed Industry Association emphasizing the maintenance of minimum protein levels in livestock feed. The other liquid feed supplement markets in the region include Vietnam, which is the second-largest pork consumer and India, which is the most potential market for liquid feed supplements driven by an increasing trend in the intensive farming system, is contributing to the demand for liquid feed supplements in the entire Asia-Pacific belt.

Competitive Landscape

The global liquid feed market is highly fragmented with the presence of many international players and several small players competing with the global giants. The major companies are Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM), BASF SE, Bundaberg Molasses, Cargill, Incorporated, Dallas Keith Ltd., GrainCorp Limited, Land O'lakes, Inc., Ridley Corporation and others. Agreements with other companies, new product launches, and investments for expansion of manufacturing units globally, have been the strategies mostly adopted by these players. For instance, Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) and Quality Liquid Feeds, Inc. (QLF) entered into a 50-50 joint venture in 2015, which would help QLF capture the untapped regions while enabling ADM to enter into the liquid feed supplement segment through the brand Loomix. Moreover, Cargill, Incorporated invested USD 20 million as a part of the plan to set up a premix plant in Kota, India, in 2019, thereby helping the farmers improve animal health and productivity through its wide-ranged portfolio of liquid feed supplements.
