"Catapult Your Business to Fore, Gain Competitive Advantage "
The global feed mixer market size stood at USD 661.1 million in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 856.9 million by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 3.4% during the forecast period.
Feed mixer is utilized in feed mills and farms to mix the premixes with feed ingredients. The concept of this system is widespread in developed regions such as, North America and Europe. It has become an important machine for livestock and dairy farmers, owing to its flexibility that properly mixes the feedstuffs, ultimately providing high quality feed for animal nutrition.
Technological development in feeding machine industry is a growing trend. It provides innovative ways of defining the nutritional value of raw feedstuffs and quality final feed products. Additionally, fine control mechanism helps in proactive precision feeding that controls long-term nutritional value of feed is ultimately boosting the feed mixer market growth.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic has moderately affected the market. It has challenged the transportation of mixers and feeding goods across the globe. The worldwide consumption of feedstuffs has significantly declined. Countries including Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, etc. have estimated nearly 5% downfall in demand for animal feed, thereby affecting this global market. The downfall in demand has indirectly affected the manufacturing of these machines, as the manufacturing plants have been locked down, owing to the impact of COVID-19 pandemic. The supply of container (wagons) to attach with this mixer has also been affected in countries including India and China where the partial lockdown in manufacturing and supply industries was imposed in the first quarter of the year 2020. Moreover, several economies in Southeast Asia are observing stringent lockdown protocols that leave supply chain, distribution and production of these machines in severe shatter. Hence, major manufacturers are left with reduced workforce that directly hampered the market. However, to avoid the unavailability of nutritious livestock, several countries have opened the international borders to freely transport feed mixers and feed products across countries.
The governmental bodies across the globe are restarting the manufacturing activities to prevent economy from collapsing, especially in feed engineering industry. For instance, the members in the European Feed Manufacturer’s Federation (FEFAC) are continuously working to supply nutritious feed products to livestock industry and provide adequate nutrition to animal husbandry. The FEFAC represents associations in Russia, Germany, Norway, Turkey, and Serbia with other national associations and EU member states. Moreover, the Dutch Feed Industry Association lays down guidelines for feed manufacturers in the Netherlands to maintain production continuity and ensure the quick feed delivery to livestock farmers during this COVID-19 pandemic.
All these measures taken by various government bodies across the globe are positively complimenting the moderate growth of market amidst COVID-19 pandemic. However, there are still certain regions including, Asia Pacific and some part of North America where feed the manufacturers are experiencing a partial or complete halt of manufacturing and supply chain processes.

Additionally, the rising need for implementation of improved machinery to reduce the food production time is also complementing the need for innovation and technological advancements in food processing machineries.
Considering all the above factors, technological development in feeding equipment industry is laying the foundation for its future growth.
Rising Demand for High Quality Feed for Animal Nutrition to Bolster Growth
Good and healthy livestock is a necessity for high quality feed for animals. This can be achieved by increasing the output capacity of feed machinery. Additionally, the need for feed machineries in farms and feeding factories is increasing, owing to the demand for fluffy and palatable ration i.e. high quality feed for animals. Additionally, modern intensive food production methods have witnessed a significant improvement in feed quality. It is because, the feed mixing machinery help to mix the ingredients properly, therefore providing proper nutrition to animals. Moreover, manufacturers are focused on the production of total mixed ration (TMR) mixers that mix the variety of feedstuffs. For instance, KUHN NORTH AMERICA, INC. offers TMR Mixer line of ‘Commercial REEL Mixers’ and ‘The REEL Auggie Mixer’ that provide superior mix quality and ‘Vertical Maxx Mixers’ that mix the variety of feed including, round bales, and others.
Therefore, the rising demand for high quality feed for animal nutrition is boosting the animal feed market.
Small Farming Lands is Hampering the Market Growth
Feed mixers are primarily suitable for medium and large scaled farming lands with large quantity of livestock. These machineries are impractical in the regions having maximum area of arable land. Arable land refers to the loss of land that can be utilized to grow crops or the land capable of being ploughed. The declining area of arable land has slowed down the growth of the market. Moreover, small-scaled farmers find it difficult to invest huge amount during initiation phases and maintenance costs thereby, adversely affecting the market.
High Efficiency in Mixing Feedstuff Ingredients to Depict Increasing Demand for Horizontal Feed Mixers
The market is classified into vertical and horizontal machinery. Among these, the horizontal mixer is anticipated to witness substantial growth in the forecast period, owing to its high efficiency in mixing feedstuff ingredients with different particle sizes and blending small quantities of liquid including added lipids, added nutritional liquids, and others. Moreover, they are well suited in poultry, aquaculture, and fish feed factories. Liquid prevents balling to enhance thorough mixing. Horizontal mixers require less horsepower to run, and increased fuel and power saving costs, thereby resulting in higher efficiency.
Vertical mixers have earned the highest feed mixer market share in 2019, attributed to its utilization for on-farm feeding manufacturing processes. Additionally, the vertical design allows these machineries to perfectly fit for small livestock feed factories. It is commonly found in small trailer mounted mixers, but now also available in large sized trailer mounted mixers.

Quick Mixing Time to Ensure Highest CAGR for Self-propelled Feed Mixers
By portability analysis, the market is categorized into self-propelled, pull and stationary.
The self-propelled mixer is in the best position to lead the global market. It has quicker mixing time rather than the stationary and pulled feed mixer counterparts. It offers better economic and nutritional benefits in farms and feed factories, as there is no need of telehandler and tractor. Moreover, self-propelled vertical or horizontal mixer consistently ensures accurate total mixed ration (TMR) that provides healthy nutritional feedstuff to cows and other animals.
Stationary feed mixer is anticipated to witness substantial growth, as it offers time efficient method and it is projected to utilize more in coming years whereas pull type is expected to witness steady growth as it requires a telehandler, who stays in one machine without switching to other equipment.
In-Range Capacity, between 10 M3- 20 M3 Segment to Witness Significant Growth Owing to Better Mixing Capacity
The market in capacity analysis is divided into <10M3, 10 M3 – 20 M3 and >20 M3.
