Changing Diet Patterns of the Populations, Particularly in Developing Markets
Swine livestock production has been growing across the world to support the needs of the changing diet patterns of the populations, particularly in developing markets. In addition to the growing demand for animal protein and the industrialization of livestock production, other factors driving the swine feed market include the increasing focus on animal welfare and sustainability. Consumers are becoming more concerned about the origin and quality of their food, leading to a rise in demand for products from animals raised in humane and sustainable conditions. This trend is driving the adoption of new feeding practices and technologies that promote animal welfare and reduce environmental impacts. There is a growing emphasis on precision nutrition, tailoring swine diets to meet specific growth stages and health requirements. Precision feeding utilizes data analytics and technology to optimize nutrient composition, resulting in improved feed efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
High Awareness, the Growing Demand for Animal Nutrition, and the Ban of Antibiotics
Increasing awareness among swine producers and consumers about the importance of animal nutrition is a significant driver for the swine feed market. Producers are recognizing that a well-balanced diet can enhance swine health, growth, and overall performance. This heightened awareness is driving the demand for specialized swine feed formulations tailored to different growth stages and health needs. Thus, the increasing awareness for animal nutrition is expected to drive the growth of the studied market over the forecast period.
Swine Feed Market High Cost of Food Products
The swine feed market presents numerous opportunities and is evolving to meet new demands, it also faces several significant restraints and challenges. Understanding these restraints is crucial for stakeholders to develop effective strategies and solutions. The prices of key feed ingredients, such as corn, soybean meal, and wheat, are subject to market fluctuations. Sudden price increases can impact feed production costs, leading to higher prices for swine feed. Thus, such instances are slowing down the growth of the studied market over the forecast period.
COVID-19 Impact on Swine Feed Market :
The COVID-19 pandemic led to disruptions in the supply chain, affecting the sourcing and transportation of key feed ingredients. Restrictions on movement and border closures hindered the timely delivery of essential raw materials to feed manufacturers. For instance, an article published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information reported that lockdowns, quarantines, and health concerns led to labor shortages in feed production facilities and on farms. Reduced workforce availability affected feed manufacturing, distribution, and on-farm operations. Thus, such instances report that initially the market was impacted. However, in the current scenario, it is anticipated that with the adoption of digital technologies for remote monitoring and management of swine farms. This allowed for more efficient feed management and reduced the need for on-site personnel. Thus, with the rapid technological development, the market is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period
Antibiotic Segment is Expected to Witness Significant Growth Over the Forecast Period
Antibiotics used to prevent, treat, and control bacterial infections in livestock are called animal vaccines. The recent developments by the top major players are expected to drive the growth of the studied segment. For instance, in July 2021, Virbac announced the launch of Tulissin 25 (tulathromycin injection) injectable solution and Tulissin 100 (tulathromycin injection) injectable solution for use in cattle and swine in the market.
Cereals Segment is Expected to Witness Significant growth Over the Forecast Period
Cereals have always been a major part of swine food. Breakfast cereal manufacturers are using the nutritional plank as a growth strategy. Furthermore, the recent developments by the top manufacturers are driving the growth of the studied market. For instance, In October 2020, Limagrain Ingredients opened its new production line in France. With an investment of USD 9 million, the company expanded its existing facility to increase the production of functional cereal flour and products to up to 15,000 tons. This sums up to a production capacity of 45,000 tons per year. Thus, such developments are fueling the growth of the studied segment.
Asia-Pacific Region is Expected to Witness Significant Growth Over the Forecast Period
Pork meat is the most preferred meat in the Asia-Pacific region due to its fat content and taste, and has been consumed in the region since ancient times. The region is the largest market for swine feed products due to the huge pork meat consumption. South East Asia is the world’s largest producer and exporter of pork, followed by Europe and North America. China is the primary market for pork production, followed by Vietnam, Thailand, South Korea, Japan, and the Philippines. Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan are the saturated markets for pork consumption, while Vietnam and the Philippines are emerging markets.
China holds the topmost position in terms of compound feed consumption, driven by factors such as the increasing consumption of pork, rising income among the middle-class population, and urbanization. Consequently, the increased demand for meat and rising costs of raw materials for animal consumption drive the demand for swine feed.
In 2021, China had around 454.8 million swine population, accounting for more than 50% of the region. The demand is also generated from the processed meat industry, which is growing at a healthy rate and requires high-quality pork meat. The adoption of intensive livestock farming systems is expected to help maintain a steady growth rate. Thus, due to the above-mentioned reasons, the region is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period.
