Global Feed Premix Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The global feed premix market is expected to reach USD 29.10 billion in 2024 and USD 39.31 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR 6.2% from 2024 and 2029.

Current Scenario of The Global Feed Premix Market

Feed premix, also known as complex premix, trace mineral premix, and vitamin premix feed, is a type of feed additive made up of two or more types of nutritional feed additives blended with a carrier or diluents in a certain proportion. The feed premixes consist of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antibiotics, and antioxidants and are consumed by livestock such as poultry, swine, aqua animals, equine, and pets. Feed Premix enables for more precise mixing and distribution of these additives throughout the feed, ensuring adequate homogeneity of the feed additives in the finished product. The feed premixes help in improving the immunity of the animals. For instance, amino acids play a vital role in building protein blocks in animals' bodies and also enhancing fertility in animals. Hence, the addition of such nutritional additives in the feed will lead to an increase in the demand for feed premixes in the forecast period between 2023 and 2028.


The growing demand and consumption of livestock-based products such as dairy and dairy-based meats and eggs is majorly propelling the growth of the feed premix market.

Livestock farmers are using feed additives for the growth and development of farm animals. According to the FAO data, the demand for global meat production will increase by 16% by 2025. Poultry meat is the primary driver of this market due to its high demand, low-cost production and lower product prices in both developed as well as developing countries. Additionally, the modernization of livestock farms in developing regions in order to meet the demand for animal protein is driving the growth of this market.

Moreover, the demand for quality livestock protein products is increasing, which encourages livestock farmers to feed their livestock with superior-quality feed products to enhance productivity and quality output. Also, consumers across the world are becoming more conscious about the quality of the animal protein products they purchase and consume and hence, they expect a high level of transparency in the supply chain of livestock products from the point of production to consumption. As a result, it is critical to improve feed nutrition by adding vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other nutrients in order to ensure healthy livestock animal performance, which drives the growth of the feed premix market. In addition, increased consumer awareness of healthy food and the desire for export-quality meat products are predicted to fuel robust demand for feed premixes between 2022 and 2027, according to the estimate.


The restrictions on the use of antibiotics as a growth promoter in the feed premix I countries like EU, China, India, U.S acts as a major restraint in the growth of the feed premix market.

Impact Of COVID-19 On the Global Feed Premix Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected the worldwide market. As a measure to control the spread of coronavirus disease, governments across the world have imposed partial or complete lockdowns, which has majorly impacted several manufacturing and service industries, including the feed premix industry. Global Feed Premix Market has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. The demand for animal feed across the globe was highly hampered by this outbreak, which has resulted in the disruption of the supply chain, restricting the product trade. The most abrupt threat to business in the feed premix industry lay with the supply chain disruptions, particularly the down-chain suppliers, which were the main sectors that were struggling to meet demand. But as the situation started fading, the demand for quality meat is increasing, which will boost the growth of the global feed premix market in the forecast period.

Global Feed Premix Market Analysis By Ingredient Type

The amino acids segment is expected to hold the largest share of the feed premix market during the forecast period. Amino acid helps in building blocks for protein development in animals and hence increases the quality of the meat. Amino Acids are widely used in feed premixes in order to provide the required nutrients to overcome dietary deficiencies. In addition to being building blocks of body protein, amino acids play a vital role in various biochemical and metabolic processes in the cells of animals. So, from growth to production and reproduction, amino acids play a large part in the productivity of farm animals and can contribute significantly to the profitability of a farm. A variety of amino acids are fed to livestock as supplements to increase their efficiency. Owing to these benefits, amino acids drive the growth of the feed premix market in the forecast period.

Global Feed Premix Market Analysis By Livestock

The poultry segment is going to dominate the market in the forecast period. The poultry industry consists of four main areas of production broilers, eggs pullets, and breeders. Poultry is the fastest-growing industry because of the rapid increase in the demand for poultry products. In some countries, the consumption of porcine and livestock meat is projected to be low due to religious beliefs, which in turn, drives the demand for poultry meat. Moreover, there will be a rise in the demand for poultry meat in coming years due to the increased cost of other livestock meat as compared to poultry meat.

Global Feed Premix Market Analysis By Form

The dry segment is projected to hold the largest share of the feed premix market because the dry form of feed premix can be easily handled and stored and has a wide range of usages in livestock applications. The dry form is easier to mix with the feed and has a longer shelf life as compared to the liquid form. Owing to these reasons, it is mostly preferred by livestock farmers.


North America is the largest contributor to the feed premix market and is projected to remain the second-largest dominant region of this market in the forecast period due to the rapid adoption of efficient and technologically advanced farm management practices by livestock farmers. The United States is the major market for the feed premix industry in this region as the US is focused on innovating cost-effective production processes. Poultry is the largest consumer of the feed premix in this region. Moreover, the Companies in the North American region are committed to research, sourcing, quality and education in providing nutritional technologies that are focused on the success of the consumer.

Asia-Pacific is expected to hold the largest market share of the feed premix market during the forecast period. The key markets in the Asia-Pacific region are China, India, Japan, Australia, Thailand, New Zealand, Vietnam and others. In the Asia Pacific region, the presence of a large livestock population is driving the market of feed premixes in the near future. Additionally, the increasing number of feed mills and feed production, particularly in Japan and India, is driving the growth of the market. Moreover, the Asia-Pacific region has a large population and the demand for animal protein is increasing, which, in turn, supports the growth of livestock farming that will further increase the demand for feed premix in order to meet the demand. Furthermore, the commercialization of livestock farming in countries such as India and China is expected to fuel the feed premix market in the forecast period. 

Europe is expected to have steady growth in this market during the projected period due to the increasing importance of animal health and wellness in the animal husbandry industry.
