Global Market for Animal Feeds to Reach $144.4 Billion in 2018; Compound Feed Segment Moving at 6.6% CAGR

July 18, 2014

BCC Research ( reveals in its new report, COMPOUND FEEDS AND ADDITIVES: GLOBAL MARKETS, the global market for animal feed reached $99.7 in 2012 and $106 billion in 2013. This is expected to grow to $144.4 billion in 2018, registering a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.4%.

In terms of compound feed types, the global market for compound feed is primarily driven by the pet food industry, which had a share of about 51% of the overall industry in 2013. The market is expected to be valued at $117.8 billion by the end of 2018, rising at a CAGR of 6.6%. 

The Asia-Pacific market for cattle feed is expected to rise at a robust rate of 8.3% over the same five-year period, owing to factors such as shrinkage of open land for cattle grazing, urbanization and the resultant shortage of conventionally used cattle feeds, and the introduction of high-yield cattle that require specialized feeds.

“Consumers are becoming aware of the safety and nutrition content of animal food. Pet ownership is growing at a fast pace, because a better economy allows more consumers to afford owning pets,” says BCC Research analyst Shalini S. Dewan. “The biggest segment in the industry is pet foods, primarily driven by the introduction of health and convenience pet food. No matter how poorly the economy is performing, consumers are still willing to invest in their family pets.”
