The global feed premix market size was valued at USD 8.50 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 21.92 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.99% during the forecast period based on our analysis in the existing report.

According to the industry statistics, the global animal feed production (in terms of volume) witnessed a CAGR of 2.81% during the period of 2013 to 2018 with major increment impending from developing nations. Livestock animals’ nutrition requirements and feeding practices have seen a dramatic change in recent decades in line with the commercialization of livestock farming activities. Increased awareness among livestock farmers about the benefits of feeding livestock with a balanced diet is the key factor that supported the growth of commercial feed, feed additives, and markets in recent years.

The premix feed is referred to as the feed that is mainly composed of two or more kinds (varieties) of nutritional feed additives mixed with a carrier or diluent in a certain proportion, including complex premix, trace mineral premix, and vitamin premix feed. The premix feed consists of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antibiotic additives. Feed premix improves the accuracy of mixing and distribution of these additives throughout the feed to ensure proper homogenization of the feed additives in the final feed.

The global animal feed premix market is projected to grow at a rapid pace over the forecast period due to increased demand for balanced feed products including macronutrients and micronutrients. Technological advancements in feeding practices, changing regulatory environment, and various benefits associated with the use of feed premixes are creating demand in the feed market.

The major determinants of demand for feed materials are the demand for livestock products and the commercialization of livestock farms. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), global milk production is projected to increase by 22% during the medium-term forecast period (2018 to 2027). Commercialization of livestock farming is leading to a shift in technology towards more intensive feeding and the same in turn, has a significant impact on the pattern of feed usage and demand for increased feed materials and components.


“Growing Demand for Commercial Feed Products in Livestock Farming”

According to the International Feed Industry Federation (IFIF) estimates, the global production of compound feed hovers around one billion tonnes annually and commercial feed manufacturing generates around USD 400 billion revenue per annum. Among the regions, Europe and Africa witnessed a CAGR of 5% (in terms of volume) during the period of 2012 to 2017. The modernization of livestock farms in developing regions to meet the growing demand for animal protein is projected to support the growth of commercial feed products, such as compound feed, feed additives, and feed premix.

“Increasing Transparency in the Supply Chain of Animal Proteins”

Increased demand for quality livestock protein products (milk, meat, etc.) is pressurizing livestock farmers to feed their animals with superior-quality feed products to enhance productivity and quality of the output. 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. Clean labeling and blockchain technologies are likely to increase the transparency of the supply chain to consumers. Hence, it is essential to enhance feed nutrition by adding the required amount of vitamins and minerals to achieve a healthy performance of livestock animals.


By Type Analysis

“Vitamin Feed Premix to Dominate the Market”

"On the basis of type, the global feed premix market can be segmented into vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antibiotics"

The vitamin premix is projected to hold the largest share in terms of value throughout the forecast period, owing to the increase in the demand for vitamin fortified feed from the rising number of commercial livestock farms. Vitamin premixes sub-segment is expected to exhibit significant growth in the global market as it is one of the major components to boost the growth of the livestock and it also helps in improving the immune system of the animals.

On the basis of livestock, the market can be segmented into ruminants, poultry, swine, aquatic animals, and others (including companion animals/birds).

This segment is expected to be one of the fast-growing segments in the global market.  

Followed by the poultry segment, the ruminants segment is expected to hold the second-largest share owing to the increased supplementation of vitamins and minerals with the commercial feed products. These are a few of the pointers which aid in the feed premix market trends throughout the forecast period.


The North American market was valued at USD 2.41 Billion in 2018 and is projected to remain the second dominant in the global market during the forecast period.
