Global Feed Premix Market Size (2022 – 2027)

The Global Feed Premix Market was worth US$ 25.8 billion in 2022, and it is estimated to reach a valuation of US$ 34.9 billion by the end of 2027, expanding at an annual growth rate of 6.2% between 2022 and 2027.

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 consists of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antibiotics, antioxidants and consumed by livestock such as poultry, swine, aqua animals, equine, 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 helps in improving the immunity of the animals, for instance amino acids plays a vital role in building proteins block in animals body and also enhancing the fertility in the animals. Hence, addition of such nutritional additives in the feed will lead to increase the demand of feed premixes in the forecast period between 2022 and 2027.

Market Drivers

The driving force of the Feed Premix Market is increasing demand and consumption of the livestock based products such as dairy and dairy-based products, meats, eggs. The livestock farmers are using the feed additives for the growth and development of farm animals. According to the FAO data, the demand for global meat production will be increased 16% higher by 2025.

The 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 the livestock farmers to feed their livestock with superior-quality feed products to enhance productivity and quality output. Also, the consumer 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 the 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.

Market Restraints

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.

Market Segmentation

Global Feed Premix Market - By Ingredient Type:

  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Amino Acids
  • Antibiotics
  • Antioxidants

Based on Ingredient Type, the Global Feed Premix Market is segmented into Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids, Antibiotics, and Antioxidants. Amino Acids segment is expected to hold the largest share of 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 required nutrients to overcome dietary deficiencies. In addition to it, being building blocks of body protein, amino acids play a vital role various biochemical and metabolic processes in the cells of the animals. So, from growth to production and reproduction, amino acids play a large part in the productivity of the farm animals and can contribute significantly to the profitability of a farm. A variety of amino acids are fed to livestock as supplements for increasing their efficiency. Owing to these benefits amino acids drives the growth of feed premix market in the forecast period.

Global Feed Premix Market - By Livestock:

  • Poultry
  • Swine
  • Aqua Animals
  • Equine
  • Pets

Based on Livestock, the Global Feed Premix Market is segmented into Poultry, Swine, Aqua Animals, Equine, Pets. Poultry segment is going to dominate the market in the forecast period. The poultry industry consists of four main areas of production such as broiler, eggs pullets, and breeders. Poultry is the fastest growing industry because of rapid increase in the demand of 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 of poultry meat. Moreover, there will be rise in the demand of poultry meat in coming years due to increase cost of other livestock meat as compared to poultry meat.

Global Feed Premix Market - By Form:

  • Dry
  • Liquid

Based on Form, the Global Feed Premix Market is segmented into Dry and Liquid. Dry Form. Dry segment is projected to hold the largest share of feed premix market because dry form of feed premix can be easily handled and stored and has wide range of usages in livestock applications. The dry form is easier to mix with the feed and have a longer shelf life as compared to liquid form, owing to these reasons it is mostly preferred by the livestock farmers.

Global Feed Premix Market – By Region:

  1. North America
  2. Europe
  3. Asia-Pacific
  4. RoW (Rest of the World)

North America is the largest contributor of the feed premix market and is projected to remain second largest dominant region of this market in the forecast period due to rapid adoption of efficient and technologically advanced farm management practices by livestock farmers.
