Looking to buy the report?

The Qatari compound feed market is valued at USD 202.7 million in 2017, registering a CAGR of 7.0% and is expected to continue growing at this pace, during the forecast period.

In the context of Qatar transforming itself to be a self-sufficient country in the food and feed production, there are significant opportunities for the compound feed manufacturers to establish the manufacturing setup in the country. As the customers are becoming more health conscious, they are opting for organic meat. Using antibiotics for farming animals is harmful and promotes the use of feed additives, this shift from antibiotics to organic feed mixtures is turning out to be a big opportunity for the market. The key players in the Qatari compound feed market include Arab Qatari Company, Al-Sanabel, Al-Watania, Baladna, and Al-Mairqab.

Increasing Meat Consumption and Demand for Dairy Products

Poultry is the main meat product imported by the GCC from foreign suppliers. Import of foreign halal beef has been growing steadily. Although the per-capita meat consumption in the region is low when compared to the developed economies in the west, it is expected to increase at a relatively higher rate. Population growth, rising per-capita income, and a booming tourism industry are the main drivers for meat consumption in the Qatar region. Increasing food consumption is indirectly driving the compound feed market, which provides complete nutrition to animals through quality feed, and is therefore used in food production. Income levels and consumption of animal protein are positively related. Therefore, the high per capita income and consequent urbanization have led to a surge in meat production in the region.  The worldwide economic downturn has had a very limited effect on the Qatar meat industry, which has maintained its positive outlook, owing to the high demand for meat.

Increasing Reliance on Imports

Qatar is a member of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and heavily dependent on imports for various food and feed related commodities. After Saudi Arabia and UAE, Qatar is the largest importer of meat products in the GCC region, accounting for nearly USD 366.29 million in 2015. Such a huge reliance on imports can be attributed to the fact that only 2.7% of the geographical land in Qatar is arable. The Qatari farm animal herd consists of camels, sheep, goats, cows, and most importantly poultry. Poultry products that are domestically produced aims to cover about 20% of the entire national need.

The issues surrounding the animal welfare laws would not likely make much impact in Qatar since the implementation of the laws would increase the already existing political turmoil in the country. There are significant numbers of small commercial farmers who breed their farm animals with their own domestically produced feed. The need to reduce the dependence on neighboring county imports is expected to create significant space for livestock production within the country.

Poultry Feed to dominate the Compound Feed Industry

Poultry is the largest segment for the compound feed market in the region, currently boosted by increased production of poultry meat. The major reason for the surge in demand and consumption of poultry meat is the increased consumption of processed poultry in Qatar. The total production of poultry meat in Qatar was at 26,175 metric tons in 2016, accounting for an increase of nearly 1.5% from 2015. The growth in consumption has created a pressure on farmers to maintain the production growth rate to retain the demand-supply balance. Rising health awareness among the consumers is exerting more pressure on farmers to produce high-quality meat at a healthy growth rate, especially in developed countries. The aforementioned reasons have created a platform for the compound feed and feed additive market, since the latter enhances the quality and efficiency of the feed, ensuring increased quality meat production. Millers and livestock producers are switching to compound feed to maintain uniformity in the feed and meat. Government support for increasing domestic poultry production, with the aim to reduce import, is offering excellent opportunities for the Qatar compound feed market. The poultry industry in Qatar is also benefiting from lenient feed-related regulations.
