Region : Global | Report ID: FBI106040 | Status : Ongoing



In recent years, the demand for dairy-based products is on rise, in turn increasing the demand for cow's milk in the market. The quality of milk that is produced from the animals depends on the health of those animals. Hence, they need to achieve proper nutrition to ensure that good quality of the dairy product is generated. During the growing period of claves, access to healthy nutrients and antibodies is achieved by feeding on the mother’s milk. However, allowing the calves to feed on the natural mik is economically not profitable and hence there is a need for an alternative source to feed the animals. Although mother's milk is a great source to boost calves' growth, this gap in the market turn boosted the demand for milk replacers to act as a substitute of natural milk and help develop healthy cows. 

Milk replacers are natural alternatives used for feeding the calves. They are highly nutritious in nature and ensures that claves achieve proper growth and development. Milk replacers refer to formulated feeds which are made from different ingredients.

There are two types of milk replacers present in the market: herd calf milk replacers and veal calf milk replacers. The herd calf milk replacers are designed for feeding claves raised to become a part of milking herd, wherease veal calfs milk replacers are formulated to feed bull calves raised for producing veal meat.  Cow milk replacers are secondary products obtained from processing whole millk and is composed of whey protein concentrates, dried skimmed milk, dried whey, and protein concentrates.

There are two major factors considered for the selection of milk replacers. The first factor includes the presence of dry matter in the reconstituted milk; the second factor is the temperature of the reconstituted milk.

Apart from the economic benefits, milk replacers prevent the transmission of diseases such as rhinotracheitis and others. The composition of the milk also varies depending on the season of the year, periods of lactation etc., while the mik composed using milk replacers is always stable. Milk replacers also contain high protein content which encourages the animals to grow faster compared to whole milk.  The high cost of milk replacers acts  as one of the major factors negatively affecting the market's growth.

Key Market Driver -

Rising Demand For Dairy Products

Key Market Restraint -

High Cost of Milk Replacers

Key Players Covered:

Liprovit, BV, Calva products LLC, PETAG Inc., Cargill, Archer Daniels Midland Company, CHS Inc., Land O’Lakes Inc., Glanbia Plc, Nutreco N.V., and Lactalis Group are some the key players operating in the global liquid milk replacers market.

Milk replacers are available in both dry form as well as liquid form. The dried form is fed to the claves by mixing them with water. Liquid milk replacers are primarily used in calf rearing ranches and for raising large veals.

To ensure that the health of the calves are maintained, feeding programs need to be developed. Proper management and strong communication with calf feeders are maintained to ensure that the calves receive the proper amount of milk with age. Both intensified and traditional breeding programs employ milk replacers, and depending on the requirement, the programs are selected.

Medicated milk replacers are anticipated to witness growth owing to the increasing demand to boost the immune system of calves. They also serve the purpose of providing healthy nutrition to the calves, similar to natural milk.

Among the livestock, the calves segment is the fastest-growing sector in the liquid milk replacers market. Calves are born only with the abomasum which controls the digestion of food. Based on the enzyme content present there, the heath of calves is affected. Using liquid milk replacers, calves are provided the required nutritional supplements to ensure optimal growth of animals.

Regional Analysis:

Europe is expected to exhibit strong growth of the market as the demand for dairy products in the market is increasing rapidly. With the advancement in technology and the rising demand for dairy-based products, the demand for milk production is increasing. Furthermore, regulations set by the European Commission mandates that the calves are able to achieve proper nutrients in their growing years through access to proper nutrient-rich food. The use of milk replacers ensures that calves receive healthy milk to support their growth, which is a major factor driving the growth of the product in this region.
