Poultry Feed Market Outlook (2023 to 2033)

The global poultry feed market enjoys a valuation of US$ 123.5 billion by 2023 and is forecasted to surge to US$ 228.1 billion by the end of 2033. This jump is because, over the course of the next ten years, worldwide sales of poultry feed are projected to rise at a CAGR of 6.3%.

Focus on protein consumption has increased exponentially in the past couple of decades owing to rising awareness of the benefits of protein-rich diets. Chicken and eggs have emerged as highly popular sources of protein for people across the world, which has subsequently increased poultry feed demand.

Implementation of strict food safety standards across the world, changing consumer preferences, growing world population, rising consumption of eggs and chicken meat, increasing preference for organic animal feed, rising per capita disposable income, globalization, and growing investments in the poultry feed industry are other factors that are slated to shape poultry feed consumption in the future.

Increasing adoption of modern poultry systems by farmers across the world is expected to boost sales of automatic chicken feeders and this in turn is projected to favour market development across the forecast period. Chicken water feeder sales are also anticipated to witness a steady hike going forward. Chicken layer feed, hen feed, chicken scratch feed, broiler feed, quail feed, and chick starter feed are some of the most popular products in the marketplace that are estimated to maintain a bright demand outlook throughout the forecast period.

Contrastingly, changing mandates regarding the use of feed additives and increasing consumer preference for fish and meat owing to relatively low pricing are prospects that could impede the consumption of poultry feed over the next ten years.

On a regional level, demand for poultry feed in North America accounted for more than 30% of the revenue share of the global market in 2022. The region is expected to remain a highly attractive marker for poultry feed manufacturers across the forecast period owing to the presence of key poultry feed manufacturing facilities and rising demand for chicken and eggs.

On the other hand, poultry feed consumption in the APAC region is slated to soar at the fastest CAGR among all regions over the next ten years. Changing dietary preferences and growing awareness of the benefits associated with protein-rich diets are key aspects that promote market development in this region.

How Could Start-ups Transform the Future of Animal Feed?

“New Poultry Feed Companies Focusing on Innovation to Revolutionize Market”

Incoming poultry feed brands are focusing on innovation and investing in research and development of new chicken feed that is not only nutritious but also follows sustainability norms that are gaining impetus.

  • In May 2022, Do Good Foods, a start-up specializing in carbon-reduced foods announced the launch of its Do Good Chicken. The company uses surplus food from grocery stores to convert into feed for chickens and prevents around four pounds of food waste from being added to landfills and hence, reducing greenhouse gases.

Aspiring poultry feed manufacturers are also exploring new avenues by trying to incorporate insect protein in animal feed and utilize food waste to reduce the overall carbon footprint of poultry feed manufacturing.

  • In August 2022, Loopworm, an Indian start-up farming insects to create animal feed raised US$ 3.4 million in seed funding led by WaterBridge Ventures and Omnivore. The company uses food waste to feed and grow insects and then processes them into valuable ingredients for animal feed.
  • In April 2022, Inesco, a start-up based in South Africa is using insects to convert waste food into oils, fertilizer, and proteins raised US$ 5.2 million in a seed funding round led by Futuregrowth Asset Management. The proteins developed by this company can be used in making animal feed as well.

New entrants in the global marketplace are also focusing on raising new capital through various funding rounds to help them expand and compete on a global scale with established poultry feed providers.

  • In September 2022, Nutrition Technologies, an agricultural technology organization revealed that it had raised US$ 20 million in a recent funding round led by PTT, a Thai-owned oil and gas conglomerate. The company uses fly larvae to produce animal feed and aims to set new standards in the global insect protein marketplace.

How Will Poultry Feed Sales Fare in the U.S.?

“Increasing Consumption of Chicken and Detection of Poultry Diseases”

The United States is anticipated to witness an upward trend in terms of chicken and egg consumption owing to their high nutritional value and the adoption of protein-rich diets by people in the country. The rise in the detection of various diseases in poultry animals in the U.S. is another prominent factor that is expected to drive shipments of poultry feed over the coming years.

Increasing incidence of obesity, rising availability of poultry meat, growing use of chicken in food service restaurants, and increasing awareness of fitness and health are other factors that are expected to guide poultry feed consumption trends in the U.S. over the next ten years. Sales of poultry feed in the United States accounted for more than 60% revenue share of the North American regional market in 2022 and are slated to maintain a similar stance throughout the forecast period.

Why Should Poultry Feed Brands Target Japan?

“High Imports of Animal Feed in Japan”

Poultry meat and eggs are a staple in Japanese food culture and this is a prime factor that is anticipated to influence poultry feed demand in the country across the forecast period. However, the country largely relies on animal feed imports to feed its poultry farms with a self-sufficiency ratio of 25% in 2021, as per data provided by Statista.

The aforementioned factor is anticipated to create highly lucrative business opportunities for poultry feed suppliers across the world and is also expected to encourage domestic poultry feed brands to come up with innovative products to fulfil the demand in the domestic landscape.

Korea is also anticipated to emerge as an investment-worthy market for poultry feed suppliers owing to rising poultry meat consumption. However, the country has a high per capita consumption of beef and pork, which is expected to have an inhibiting effect on sales of poultry feed over the coming years.

Which Countries in Europe Should Poultry Feed Suppliers Target?

“United Kingdom & Germany to Be Attractive Markets”

Consumers in Germany and the U.K. have become increasingly aware of their health and fitness owing to the advent of several chronic diseases and this has influentially resulted in high demand for poultry products that are rich in protein.

Adoption of sustainable cattle rearing techniques, increasing awareness about the ill effects of red meat consumption, and changing consumer preferences are other factors that are expected to promulgate demand for bulk chicken feed in European countries through 2033.

Demand for organic chicken in Europe is expected to witness a hike over the next ten years and this is expected to favor sales of organic poultry feed.

Where Will Most Poultry Feed be Sourced From?

“Efforts to Improve Nutritional Content of Feed Resulting in High Demand for Soybeans”

Based on source, the market for poultry feed is segmented into corn, wheat, soybeans, blend grains, and others.

Soybeans are rich in nutrients and have been proven to be excellent ingredients in animal feed in recent years. Its higher protein content and better amino acid profile than corn are the prime factors that are increasing its popularity among poultry farmers across the world. Changing preferences of poultry farmers are pushing poultry feed manufacturers to incorporate soybeans in their chicken feed.

However, corn remains the more used ingredient in chicken farms as it makes up for more than 1/3 of all the feed ingredients used. The use of corn is expected to witness a steady decline over the coming years as demand for high-protein poultry feed increases globally.

Competitive Landscape

Poultry feed companies are focusing on sustainability and coming up with new ways to produce animal feed that causes minimal harm to the environment and reduces the overall carbon footprint of the manufacturing process.

  • In November 2022, ForFarmers, a Dutch agricultural feed organization announced its plans to use alternative raw materials and food waste to manufacture new animal feeds that meet the new demand for sustainable agricultural practices.

Poultry feed providers are also investing in the expansion of their production capacity to meet rising demand from various parts of the world.

  • In November 2022, Alturas Group of Companies, a diversified business for agricultural manufacturing increased its investments in the agriculture business as it recently launched a new feed mill in Marcela Farms in Ubay, Bohol.
