Why is There Major Uptick in Revenue from Fermented Feed?

“Emergence of Fermented Feed in Innovative Packaging Formats for Preserving Quality”

Fermentation is a metabolic process in which an organism converts carbohydrates into alcohol or an acid. It has been used for decades by several cultures across several countries to enhance and preserve food.

The fermentation process uses organisms as primary feed materials for various benefits, such as creating new & improved enzyme content, increasing the levels of vitamins B, C & K, and boosting the usable protein level. It is also used to enhance the feed conversion ratio that boosts the number of nutrients.

When fed to chicken, fermented feed helps increase egg weight, shell weight, shell thickness, weight gain for meat birds, and shell resistance and keeps their digestive tract functioning correctly. This makes them healthier and maintains the proper functioning of their immune system, which increases their ability to resist disease & bacterial infection and lowers their consumption of feed as fermented feed is digested by their body more effectively.

Several animal nutrition organisms are produced in industries, which include, enzymes, yeast, and others. They promote vigorous intestinal function, improve digestibility & feed efficiency, and enhance production performance. Fermented feed is invariably used at large in several industries across the globe due to its several characteristics such as better output, low cost, natural structure, high quality, and nutrient-rich properties.

The fermentation process also offers meat and fish producers a lucrative way for acquiring clean label authorization for their fermented feed products without utilizing harmful synthetic preservatives.

Apart from this, surging demand for fermented feed also results in creative and innovative packaging formats for preserving the quality of products without sacrificing aesthetics and convenience aspects.

How are New Companies Strategizing to Enter This Market?

“Introduction of New Products and Intensive R&D by Emerging Market Players”

New companies are concentrating on the introduction of new products and are relying on intensive R&D. To compete with their competitors' product offerings and increase public knowledge of new and existing items and technology, new market entrants have increased their product launch initiatives in recent years.

  • A start-up in the United States called NovoNutrients creates protein from waste carbon dioxide for aquaculture and other animal feed. Fish feeding has been vital, but getting more and more expensive. Waste carbon dioxide is transformed into high-value protein using novel microbial methods.
  • Aqua Cultured Foods, a new company based in Chicago, is creating microbially fermented whole-muscle cut seafood substitutes. Utilizing biomass fermentation and a unique breed of fungi, it is producing seafood analogues such as prawns, calamari, whitefish, and salmon.

Which Regions are Expected to Generate High Revenue for Fermented Feed Suppliers?

“Rising Demand for Polymers Obtained from Fermentation and Strict Regulations Related to Feed Products across Regions”

North America is dominating the global fermented feed market with 29.8% share.

North America is the largest market for fermented feed products. The market growth in the region is attributed to the high level of consumer awareness regarding the nutritional and health advantages of food products.

Branched chain amino acid supplements (BCAAs) are being employed more frequently in performance nutrition strategies due to rising customer demand for high protein diets for bodybuilding and general well-being.

The health advantages of amino acids and their sources are better known to consumers in the United States. Plant-based amino acids are becoming the preferred source of amino acids because of their clean label qualities.

In addition, a wide range of applications utilize polymers obtained from fermentation, and producers are attempting to create new goods.

Europe accounts for 24.3% share of the global market. The market in Europe is likely to grow at a significant rate owing to strict regulations related to feed products.

The Asia Pacific fermented feed market is expected to be the fastest growing due to the increase in population, industrialization of the dairy & meat industry, and the demand for various non-vegan cuisines in the HoReCa industry.

Which Livestock Segment is Set to Garner High Market Share?

“Growing Usage of Fermented Feed for Poultry”

Based on the livestock, the fermented feed market is segmented into poultry, ruminants, swine, aquatic animals, and others.

The major share of fermented feed is used in the poultry segment. An increase in the preference for non-vegan food has led to an increase in the demand for poultry, especially chicken. This is likely to be a major driver for the poultry feed market. Another factor responsible for the growth of the fermented feed market is a decrease in the overall intake of feed to enhance nutrition for cost savings.

Moreover, fermented feed helps increase the feed quality & nutritional value of products, increases the egg weight of birds, improves their digestibility, and strengthens their immune system, which boosts their ability to resist diseases and bacterial infection.

Competitive Landscape

Fermented feed manufacturers are concentrating on releasing new, calorie-efficient goods with natural ingredients that taste great. R&D has received significant funding to create goods that address particular needs. The market is expected to be driven by rising innovations and the introduction of new & improved items by prominent players over the coming years.
