Industry Trends

Feed Phosphate Market size surpassed USD 2 billion in 2020 and is predicted to grow at a CAGR of over 4% from 2021 to 2027. Growing demand for animal supplements to boost performance, growth, and the immune response is anticipated to drive the market growth.

Feed phosphates are inorganic salts of phosphoric acid, which are used to meet the phosphorus requirements of an animal diet to ensure optimal growth, boost performance, fertility, and bone development. Phosphates in animal feed improve the laying capacity and prevent diseases; therefore, widely used in animal feed applications. Most of the feed phosphates used are calcium phosphates in different forms including monocalcium phosphate, tricalcium phosphate, and dicalcium phosphate. They are used in nutrition and animal supplements including poultry, cattle, pigs, and aquaculture.

The rising demand for phosphates from the animal feed industry owing to their ability to improve fertility and provide palatability will boost the market size. Calcium phosphates are an essential source of calcium and phosphorous, enhancing the immunity, milk production, productive life in cattle, and overall well-being of animals; therefore, widely used in feed application. Rising disease outbreaks in the U.S. have led consumer attention toward high-quality meat and animal health, which are anticipated to drive market statistics. The increasing poultry production along with meat producers’ focus on quality is further expected to positively impact the feed phosphate market expansion.

Rising demand for monocalcium phosphates in animal feed due to high phosphorous content

Monocalcium feed phosphate market surpassed USD 770 million in 2020 and is anticipated to witness significant gains over the predicted timeframe. The increasing use of monocalcium phosphate in animal feed supplements owing to its ability to supply essential minerals for the growth and development of animals will foster product demand. Monocalcium phosphate is widely used in animal feed, such as livestock, pet, and poultry, due to its ability to support the development of strong bones and teeth. Livestock and poultry farmers increasingly use monocalcium phosphate in animal feed due to its high phosphorous content compared to dicalcium phosphate. Changing eating habits and lifestyles are driving the poultry industry, in turn, is expected to strengthen the market share.

Monocalcium phosphate offers various benefits such as it is highly soluble, thus allows increased flexibility in diet formulation. Furthermore, it is also easily digested by farm animals; therefore, less feed additive is wasted resulting in a low impact on the environment from runoffs. Monocalcium phosphate offers various advantages such as aids digestion by increasing the activity of digestive enzymes, strengthens the immune system, and cleanses the intestine from harmful substances. The increasing demand for monocalcium phosphate due to rising animal health problems such as calcium & phosphorous deficiency and restricted growth will accelerate market growth during the forecast timespan.

Increasing product demand to promote growth in poultry livestock by enhancing their immunity level will augment market forecast

Feed phosphate market size from poultry livestock is anticipated to surpass USD 1.65 billion by 2027. Feed phosphate is widely used in poultry feed owing to its ability to replenish phosphorous, which contributes to the formation of strong skeleton & tissue, improves metabolism, functions of the nervous, immune & reproductive systems, and increases productivity. Phosphate is used to metabolize calcium in chickens and has a high consumption in poultry compared to other meat sources. The increasing use of monocalcium phosphate and dicalcium phosphate in poultry farming is anticipated to boost product demand from poultry livestock application. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Brazil is the leading exporter of chicken meat globally. The robust poultry livestock production expansion due to foreign and domestic demands in Brazil is driving the regional poultry industry and will positively impact the phosphate feed industry size.  

A large number of small-sized farms along with government norms to meet the nutritional value of livestock will stimulate product demand from poultry applications. Feed phosphates are used in poultry feed as a growth supplement to improve efficiency, performance, feed utilization, laying capacity, and prevent disease. It improves poultry performance by building & maintaining a strong bone, optimizing muscle growth, and maximizing meat & egg production. In China, tricalcium phosphate is widely used in poultry feed as it shows strong growth in poultry livestock. The demand for poultry products will increase in the post-COVID period, which is anticipated to positively impact the poultry feed sector, in turn, creating opportunities for the feed phosphate market size. The increasing demand for poultry meat products is a key factor driving the market growth. High poultry feed prices will lead to expensive production, which may negatively impact the market growth.

Increased concerns among consumers on animal nutrition and meat quality will stimulate market statistics in North America

The North America feed phosphate market is poised to surpass USD 880 million by 2027. Outbreaks of human infections linked to animals, such as zoonotic diseases, will positively impact the regional market size. In North America, monocalcium phosphate is widely used in feed products to increase the palatability of livestock. Demand for dicalcium phosphate is increasing from the cattle industry owing to its ability to enhance immunity status and milk production, which will create potential opportunities for market growth. The demand for feed phosphate is high from the poultry industry due to its use as a growth supplement in poultry livestock.

In Canada and Mexico, the demand for phosphate is high owing to its use in pet food. It helps in impulse transmission and skeletal formation, which will further gain importance. A low amount of phosphorous in animal nutrition causes various health problems, such as low body weight, skeletal problems, and reduced metabolism, which can lead to animal death. Leading companies in North America are increasingly investing in monocalcium phosphate production along with increasing concerns among pet owners to ensure proper pet nutrition will foster product demand, thus accelerating business growth in the region.

Key business strategies adopted by manufacturers include mergers and acquisitions

The global feed phosphate market is competitive and includes various players such as Phosagro, EuroChem Group, The Mosaic Company, Potash Corp (Nutrien), Rotem Turkey, Lifosa, Reaenjoy Laboratories, and Yara International ASA. Companies in the feed phosphate market are primarily engaged in expanding production capacity and merger & acquisition strategies for business expansion.

In July 2021, The Mosaic Company partnered with Ethos Institute to develop a program for mosaic suppliers in Brazil that will strengthen their sustainability practices. This partnership aims at supplier capacity building and improving sustainability policies.
