Growth Factors

The growth is attributed to the increased consumption of processed poultry, dairy, and aqua products. Moreover, the growing demand for quality meat and meat by-products is likely to have a positive impact on the market in the coming years. An outbreak of several diseases in livestock has increased concerns regarding meat quality and safety, which, in turn, is anticipated to drive the use of animal feed additives. Vitamins are extensively utilized as additives in animal feed formulations. Although vitamins are naturally present in the feed, additional supplements infused with vitamins to provide optimal nutrition are added to livestock feeds, thereby driving the demand for vitamins. 

Increasing consumption of the product for carp, salmon, tilapia, and catfish, due to their rising demand driven by their rich protein content, is anticipated to boost the industry's growth. The high content of omega-3 fatty acids in carp and its ability to reduce cholesterol levels have augmented their demand, which, in turn, is projected to propel the product demand over the forecast period.

By Ingredient Analysis

The feed acidifiers segment dominated the market with a revenue share of over 11% in 2020. This is attributed to their ability to prevent diseases caused by E. coli and Salmonella. Increased protein digestibility improved immune response, increased resource efficiency, reduced mortality, and enhanced feed conversion, among others, are some of the benefits of feed acidifiers.

Antiparasitics are used to prevent infections in fish caused by these parasites and enhance the feed quality. The diversity and complexity of parasites, such as myxozoans, unicellular organisms, worms, and crustaceans, make it necessary to add anti-parasitic in aquaculture feed to prevent parasitic disease occurrence in aquatic species.

Palatants are used in aquafeed as flavor-enhancing agents. They are known to increase the palatability and nutritive value of the product. Increasing demand for nutrient-rich ingredients for improving digestibility and palatability is anticipated to fuel the demand for palatants over the forecast period.

By Application Analysis

The catfish application segment dominated the market with a revenue share of more than 22.5% in 2020. This is attributed to the increasing product demand from consumers on account of its rich content of vitamin D and omega-6 fatty acids. The segment is expected to register the second-fastest CAGR, in terms of revenue, from 2021 to 2030. The tilapia segment is estimated to record the fastest CAGR from 2021 to 2030.

Carp consumes animal feed, such as water insects, insect larvae, mollusks, worms, and zooplankton along with leaves, seeds, and stalks of terrestrial and decayed aquatic plants. The growing importance of omega-3 fatty acids in the food & beverage industry is likely to trigger the demand for carp as it helps decrease cholesterol levels. 

By Regional Analysis

Central & South America dominated the global market with a revenue share of more than 36.5% in 2020. This is attributed to the favorable climatic conditions and availability of locally produced fish feed made from basic raw materials, such as fish oil and fish meal.

North America is projected to witness significant growth on account of the rising consumption of seafood in countries, such as the U.S. and Canada.

Asia Pacific is projected to grow at a steady growth rate over the forecast period due to the substantial growth of the aquaculture industry, which is attributed to the availability of cheap labor, ease of induced conditions for aquaculture, and the presence of natural resources in the region.
