Increasing concerns regarding the animal health and nutrition, rising awareness about product potential, increasing demand for dairy products and increase in investment on R&D of efficient and cost effective milk replacers by prominent players are driving the global market.

Sometimes mother animals are unable or unavailable to nurse their baby animals. Therefore, pet owners are inclined towards milk replacers to ensure the maximum growth rate of the baby animals such as puppies, calf, and others. A good milk replacer product has physical, chemical, and nutritional characteristics similar to whole milk which can help to fulfill the energy and nutrient supply of the animals. The prominent players operating the market are embarking on the research and development of new products & mergers and acquisitions to increase their market prominence.

For instance, the consumption of milk replacers can help to increase long-term growth rate among new born animals, it can improve milk production and overall health.

The on-going research activities for the development of efficient fortified milk replacers are likely to increase the product share in upcoming years.

Calves are predicted to hold significant share in the global market. Calves are usually unable to digest solid food and hence whole milk or milk replacers are crucial for their nourishment.

Europe is expected to hold significant share in the global market.

For instance, According to Pet Food Industry Federation (FEDIAF) 85 million European households own at least one pet animal.

Asia Pacific is expected to grow at considerable pace in the forthcoming years. Livestock production is one of the major income sources in many emerging countries in Asia Pacific. The increasing demand for dairy products can increase the concerns towards animal health and wellbeing. The scarcity of feed resources results in low productivity and poor growth of animals, and hence, the demand for milk replacers is expected to increase within the region.
