Feed Non-Protein Nitrogen Market Size

Feed Non-Protein Nitrogen Market size surpassed USD 1 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to depict a 4% CAGR between 2023 and 2032, on account of the economic upswing and the increasing livestock production.

Feed Non-Protein Nitrogen Market

Non-protein nitrogen is rapidly emerging as a beneficial and cost-effective source of dietary protein for animal nutrition among farmers. With rapid urbanization and economic growth, there has been an urgent need for livestock production to cater to the growing consumer base. As per the World Bank, the production of industrialized meat is growing 6 times faster than traditional meat production techniques. Manufacturers are also developing non-protein nitrogen products that can act as a replacement for a portion of the total dietary protein requirements in cattle.

An increase in livestock production will therefore boost the consumption of animal feed protein and in turn, escalate the use of non-protein nitrogen in animal feed formulations. However, stringent regulations associated with the toxicity of animal fodders may hinder industry growth to some extent. In the U.S., for example, strict norms pertaining to animal safety have been introduced, requiring animal feed developers to gain FDA approvals. Furthermore, the rising awareness about greenhouse gas emissions and land and water degradation due to livestock production may limit product usage.

Feed Non-Protein Nitrogen Market Analysis

Global Feed Non-Protein Nitrogen Market Share By Type

The feed non-protein nitrogen market size from the urea product segment is expected to cross USD 1 billion by 2032. The mounting product penetration is due to cost-effectiveness, high nitrogen content, reduced weight loss, dry roughage intake, and other benefits. In the U.S., the development of small ruminant products is also rising steadily, to address the demand from immigrants who prefer goat or sheep products over poultry and pork. These factors will generate interest in improving ruminant health management and drive the acceptance of urea as a building block for NPN production through rumen microbes.

The ruminant livestock segment will grow at 4% CAGR through 2032, considering the extensive product usage in ruminant feed for dairy production and meat processing. The dairy sector is flourishing in many regions worldwide, especially in African and Asian nations. According to the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board, milk production is estimated to increase by over 2% per year across the globe. Such factors will also augment the adoption of urea as a common non-protein nitrogen source for ruminants, considering the low cost and high palatability over alternative sources.
