Cattle feed is a mixture of various concentrate feed ingredients in suitable proportion. The commonly used ingredients in cattle feed include grains, brans, protein meals/cakes, chunnies, agro-industrial by-products, minerals, and vitamins. Cattle feed is an economical source of concentrate supplements and it is available in the form of mash, pellets, crumbles, cubes, etc. Cattle feed contains protein, energy, minerals, and vitamins required for the growth, maintenance, and milk production of animals. Feed and feed additives contain essential nutrients and fiber, etc. which enhance digestive metabolism, efficiency, and immunity mainly in young cattle. Cattle need these energy sources for essential life processes, which includes muscular activity.
Global Cattle Feed and Feed Additives Market Dynamics:
A major factor driving growth of the global cattle feed and feed additives market is rising awareness among breeders and farmers etc., as well as meat product consumers, regarding nutrition and health of cattle, as well as healthy food products. In addition, growing animal husbandry industry mainly in some developing countries, coupled with increasing government initiatives such as schemes and subsidies promoting health of young cattle are other key factors expected to drive growth of the global cattle feed and feed additives market over the next 10 years. In 2017 for instance, the Turkish government increased domestic beef production by offering subsidies on feeder cattle and bovine for breeding import and distribution, which helped to rebuild domestic cattle inventory.
Furthermore, increasing focus of major players on R&D activities for development of improved feed and feed additives for healthy cattle is a key factor expected to support the global cattle feed and feed additives market growth. In addition, rising investments and financial assistance for cattle farming for supplementary business such as agriculture for catering to growing meat demand and satisfactory technological innovations in processing equipment is also expected to drive animal feed additives demand and is expected to drive revenue growth of the global cattle feed and feed additives market over the forecast period.
However, stringent government regulations regarding utilization of antibiotics or antibiotic growth promoters (AGPs) in the US and Europe owing to bioaccumulation of antibiotics in gastrointestinal tract, which creates resistance to medicines, coupled with ban on imports of food products in certain countries are major factors expected to hamper growth of global cattle feed and feed additives market to a certain extent over the forecast period.
Market Analysis by Ingredient type:
On the basis of ingredient type, the corn segment is expected to contribute major revenue share in the global cattle feed and feed additives market and is expected to register a CAGR of over 2.0%, in terms of revenue over the forecast period. This is primarily attributed to increasing use of corn as feed grain in beef cattle feed, due to its low cost and relatively high nutritional value in the global cattle feed and feed additives market.
Market Analysis by Application:
Among all the application segments, the dairy cattle segment is expected to contribute major revenue share in the global cattle feed and feed additives market and is expected to register highest CAGR of over 2.5% in terms of revenue over the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing adoption of dairy products in diet among population in countries in Asia Pacific and Middle East regions.
Market Analysis by Additives type:
Among the additives type segments, the amino acid segment is expected to contribute major revenue share in the global cattle feed and feed additives market, and is expected to witness highest CAGR of over 4.0% in terms of revenue over the forecast period. This growth can be mainly attributed to increasing usage of amino acids such as lysine, methionine, thiamine, and tryptophan in animal feed additives especially for ruminants in order to enhance development of proteins to improve quality as well as quantity of meat in the global cattle feed and feed additives market.
Market Analysis by Region /Country:
Europe market is expected to dominate in the global cattle feed and feed additives market, and is expected to continue with the dominance over the forecast period as compared to that of markets in other regions. The major factors driving growth of the cattle feed & feed additives in this region are growing dairy cow population and increasing milk production resulting in growing demand for these products.
In addition, growing demand for high quality beef and increasing government initiatives to improve the quality of feed and food from animal origin are other factors expected to support growth of the market in Europe, and in turn is expected to drive growth of the global cattle feed and feed additives market.
China market is projected to register highest CAGR of over 3.0% in the global cattle feed and feed additives market over the forecast period. This is primarily attributed to improving standard of living and rapid urbanization resulting in increasing demand for high quality and branded beef products.
