Compound Feed Market Size

Compound Feed Market size was reached USD 450.5 billion in 2023 and is projected to witness 4.5% CAGR from 2024 to 2032.

Compound Feed Market

Growing population and the subsequent rise in urbanization have resulted in the rising demand for quality animal-derived food products, including meat, milk, and eggs, favoring livestock production across the region. This will assist farmers in investing in livestock farming, thus, supporting the market for compound feed. Moreover, the shifting consumer inclination toward dietic nutrition and high protein consumption will positively influence the demand for animal products. Thus, to garner profits from the expanding the compound feed market, farmers will enhance their production capacity while improving the formulation of animal products by using compound feed. 

This apart, the growing consciousness regarding animal health will fuel the demand for livestock feed products, thereby supporting the compound feed market growth. The rising awareness & concerns regarding livestock diseases have accelerated the need for safe livestock nourishment practices for proper nutrition to enhance their health and protect them against various diseases. Crowded & dirty conditions on farms can result in more diseases among animals. These diseases can increase the risk of human infections, thereby augmenting the importance of compound feed for boosting animal immunity and improving their health.

COVID-19 Impact

The compound feed market globally was taken aback by the sudden onset of the COVID-19 pandemic as several nations banned the exports of grains, including ware, barley, soybeans, maize, wheat, etc., to other countries resulting in severe demand-supply issues in the animal feed industry. Organic feed producers had to bear the brunt of draconian lockdown measures imposed by China, a prominent supplier of organic soybean, to contain the viral spread during the crisis. The closure of international airports in several countries disrupted the animal feed value chain worldwide.

Additionally, the sudden closure of hotels and restaurants, coupled with a dramatic shift in consumption patterns, limited the demand and production of livestock and aquaculture, which further took a huge toll on the industry's growth. However, with the implementation of necessary measures, the industry is on its way to registering significant progression.

Compound Feed Market Trends

However, fluctuations in raw material prices, including wheat, maize, soybean, and millet, may hinder industry profitability during the next ten years as it impacts the pricing & production of compound feed. The availability of these materials largely relies on their yield. The changing weather conditions and the excessive use of fertilizers for enhancing crop quality & yield lead to increasing costs of the end product, which may impede the market demand.
