The current global outbreak of COVID-19 is impacting almost all the industry and its long and short-term effect on the animal feed industry is uncertain. The whole COVID-19 situation has led many businesses to temporarily shut down or remain partially operational and the animal feed industry is no exception. Misinformation and speculations about the consumption of meat has contributed in diminishing the meat production and supply and has also resulted in declined meat consumption. Moreover, disruption of the supply chain due to trade suspension has impacted the feed market negatively. The ambiguity associated with the situation is making it tough to predict the market statistics for feed in the future years, however, considerable fluctuations are expected to occur in the market numbers.

Organic Pork Production to Exhibit High Growth Trajectory
Organic pig meat production is an emerging market that can offer environmental benefits, animal welfare, and premium prices to swine producers. The increased demand for organic pork is predicted to aid the demand for organic swine feed. In recent years, it has been observed that the consumer inclination towards organic food has augmented crucially, and hence raising the production of organic feed to produce organic pork is predicted to be profitable for the market. Several liberties given to organic pork products such as the inclusion of synthetic minerals and vitamins in the swine diet and permission to use non-genetically modified vaccines in organic swine production are predicted to driving forces behind the growth of this market.
Rising Demand for Well-bred Pork Meat to Aid Market Growth
High demand for animal protein, especially in the form of meat is predicted to escalate the production of pigs, which is further expected to boost market growth. The affordable price structure of pork makes it widely popular among the population group of the varying economy. Moreover, the high likability of consumers towards pork products such as bacon, ham, and others due to their taste and texture will boost the demand for feed. Well-established pork markets in western economies and increasing trade of live pigs and pork across several global economies are projected to further fuel the growth of the market in the upcoming years.
Launch of Swine Feed Additives and Supplements is Positively Influencing the Market
To enhance the health of pigs and obtain high-quality yield growers are primarily focusing on providing suitable and complete nutrition to their swine. Launch of swine probiotics and supplements is helping these farmers achieve their goals along with boosting the pig feed market growth. Market players are introducing feed premixes, high-quality feed ingredients, and additives to ensure the proper growth and well-being of pigs. The introduction of swine feeding systems and programs to spread awareness about the nutritional requirements and efficient ways to feed pigs will augment market growth.
Volatility of Raw Material Price Restrict Market Growth
High price volatility associated with raw materials and additives used in the feed preparations can hamper the growth of the market. For instance, a significant increase in the price of corn can negatively impact its affordability by small as well as medium-sized pig farm owners. The rising number of people opting for vegan and vegetarian diets and giving up on meat products is predicted to hamper the demand for pig meat, which will further affect the market negatively. Moreover, the outbreak of swine diseases such as African Swine Fever (ASF), Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea (PED), and others are predicted to further limit the market growth. For instance, in China, where the pig population is highest in the world, the outbreak of ASF caused authorities to cull a significant number of pigs in the country. According to the China Ministry of Agriculture & Rural Affairs (MARA), by April 2019, around 1.02 million were culled in China to stop the spread of ASF in the country.

Grower Feed to Lead the Market Attributed to Speedy Growth Rate of Piglets
The demand for grower feed is projected to remain high throughout the forecast period due to their high consumption by piglets or newborn pigs. The high price of grower feed as they are designed to stimulate growth in newborn pigs is also one of the main reasons for the high market share of the segment. Moreover, a swift increase in feed amount consumption by growing pigs is another prominent reason predicted to aid the growth of the segment. The demand for quality sow feed is expected to increase at a remarkable rate as extra nutrition is required by sow swine to deliver healthy newborn pigs. Rising incidences of diseases in sow swine is further expected to encourage producers to produce high-quality feed for sow pigs.
Amino Acid to Observe the Fastest Growth due to Their Multi-functional Nature
Amino acids are projected to hold a comparatively larger share as compared to other additives used in the pig feed preparations. Certain amino acids are required for proper metabolism in swine. Although pigs are capable of synthesizing some of the amino acids on their own, their high incapability of synthesizing some essential amino acids such as Valine, Lysine, Leucine, Threonine, and others insist on incorporating these amino acids in their feed. Amino acids play major roles in the production of digestive enzymes within the swine’s body, development of muscle protein, and metabolization of hormones within them. Moreover, the demand for several other swine feed additives such as acidifiers, enzymes, vitamins, and others are expected to increase in the forthcoming years due to intensifying demand for superior quality pig meat.
Pellets to be the Most Desired Swine Feed Form due to Their High Efficiency
Pellet segment helps the largest share in 2019, and the segment is projected to grow at a considerable rate throughout the forecast period. The demand for pelleted feed products for pigs is high among pig growers across the world due to their potential to improve the feed conversion ratio of swine. Pig feed available in pellet form is getting wider adoption due to their outstanding palatability, their efficacy in bringing improvement in swine performance, and highly sophisticated structure. Moreover, the demand for mash feed is anticipated to increase among small pig growers for whom high feed cost is a constraint. For sow and lactating pigs mash feed is a convenient option as they can be customized and added with extra nutrients and can be kept moisturized for increasing feed intake among sow pigs.
