Global Animal Feed Ingredients Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Animal Feed Ingredients are used in animal feed to provide the animals with the essential nutrients they need to grow and develop properly. Some common animal feed ingredients include corn, soybean meal, wheat, and fishmeal. Animal feed ingredients are important because they help ensure that farm animals are healthy and productive.


Corn is a cereal grain, of the family Poaceae. It is a staple food in many countries and has been used as animal feed for centuries. The main function of corn in animal feed is to provide nutrition and energy to the animals that are important for meat production such as cattle, poultry, swine etc. Corn also helps improve digestion by improving bacterial balance in the gut which further improves nutrient absorption efficiency thus ensuring adequate nourishment for livestock.

Soybean Meal:

Soybean meal is a by-product obtained during the extraction of soy oil. It consists of approximately 35% protein and contains all the essential amino acids required for animal nutrition. Soybean meal also provides fiber, vitamins, minerals and omega 6 & 3 fatty acids which are necessary to support animal health.

Application Insights:

Animal feed ingredients are majorly used in animal nutrition. The application segment includes chickens, pigs, cattle, and fish. Cattle is the largest consumer of animal feed ingredients and hence this application segment accounted for a larger market share in 2017. However, with growing demand for meat from cattle and other animals the consumption of animal feed will increase accordingly over the forecast period thus driving demand for these products during this time frame.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global animal feed ingredients market in 2017. The region is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to rising meat consumption and increasing exports of animal by-products. China, India, and Japan are among the largest importers of corn gluten meal globally.

The European market for animal feed ingredients is anticipated to grow at a relatively slower pace over the next eight years due to stringent regulations regarding environmental impacts associated with livestock farming practices coupled with growing awareness about sustainability issues related to agriculture commodities. Increasing demand for organic products has also led manufacturers in this region exclusively source materials from suppliers who adhere to high ethical standards regarding production practices.

North America accounted for a share of more than 10% in terms of volume as well as revenue on account of high demand from end-use industries such as pet food manufacturing companies that cater primarily toward cat.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for meat and dairy products from the developing countries is expected to drive the growth of animal feed ingredients market.
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of animal feed ingredients among livestock farmers is projected to boost the demand for these products in near future.
  • Growing use of genetically modified crops for production of animal feed is anticipated to fuel the growth of this market in next few years.
  • Proliferation of new product launches by key players is likely to offer lucrative opportunities for growth of this market in coming years. 5) Expansion & investment by leading players into emerging economies would provide impetus to the growth Animal Feed Ingredients Market over forecast period
