Key Market Trends

Growth in Industrial production of livestock

The per capita consumption of red meat and livestock products like milk across the region has increased rapidly, as they are considered to be an important source of nutrition/protein, by consumers in different countries. This, in turn, has resulted in increased production of high-quality livestock products, as well as high demand for livestock. In response to globalization and the increasing demand for animal-sourced food, the North American livestock sector has witnessed a robust growth rate in the past couple of years. Industrial-scale livestock production makes optimum use of high-quality feed, to improve efficiencies in the production process, to improve feed conversion ratios, and to enhance animal muscle mass and protein content. With the adoption of industrial-scale livestock production by a larger number of farmers, the application of silage inoculants in feed has been enhanced to maintain the quality of the livestock and is supported by an increasing number of product launches by international players.
