The animal feed protein ingredients market from oilseed meals surpassed USD 125 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to witness significant gains over the projected timespan. Oilseed-based meal is a plant-based protein supplement, produced as a by-product from canola, cottonseeds, soybean, sunflower, and copra oil extraction. It is highly used in poultry, swine, cattle, and chicken feeds as it helps to increase the feed intake as well as provide more energy coupled with improved productivity, health, and performance. 

Soybean meals may witness strong gains in animal feed application owing to cost-effectiveness along with high protein content balancing good amino acid contents, low fiber, and high energy. Around 70% of the total soybean is used in livestock feeding. The amino acid profile of soybean meal is similar to a fish meal. Restrictions in fish catching have dropped fish meal production, which may boost soybean meal demand.

Increasing demand for chicken products among consumers has raised the demand for poultry farming, propelling market growth

Poultry livestock segment surpassed USD 80 billion in 2020. Protein-rich feed is highly used for poultry production due to the high importance of protein as it is one of the major constituents in the body. Protein that exists in the form of enzymes and hormones plays an important role in the physiology of poultry birds. Broilers have a high requirement of dietary protein, driving the animal feed protein ingredients market share to enhance broiler performances during the forecast period.

Protein is a vital nutrient for poultry and all other classes of animals. The consumption of poultry products has increased in recent years owing to the rising demand for eggs and chicken. However, outbreaks, such as Avian Influenza (AI) and COVID, have affected the poultry meat production around the world, hampering the animal feed protein ingredients market growth.

Asia Pacific is poised to surpass USD 90 billion by the end of 2027 owing to high investments in livestock farming supported by financial assistance through government subsidies and schemes. The easy availability of processed and frozen meat products, mainly in China, India, and Japan, along with decreasing cultural barriers and prevailing health conditions, such as malnutrition, mainly among children has led to rise in meat consumption.

The growth in the production of poultry products in developing countries, such as India, Taiwan, and Vietnam, is attributable to the transformation of poultry production from a backyard activity into a major commercial activity in recent years. This trend has also influenced farmers to adopt new animal dietary patterns, which is anticipated to drive the Asia Pacific animal feed protein ingredients market.

Asia Pacific aquafeed additives account for a high market share owing to resource availability, low cost labor, and ambient environmental conditions for exponential growth rate in aquaculture. Furthermore, increase in the consumption of fish and sea foods owing to growing population and changing consumer behavior trends will accelerate the aquaculture production in the region. Major producers as well as consumers of aquafeed additives in aquaculture are from China, Vietnam, the Philippines, Thailand, and India, contributing to regional industry growth in the aquafeed segment.
