The global poultry feed market was valued at USD 121.3 billion in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 6.9% from 2024 to 2033. The market is expected to reach USD 236.3 billion by 2033. The demand for poultry feed has increased due to rising disposable income, which leads to higher living standards. This has resulted in the expansion of the poultry feed market. The global poultry feed market is expanding due largely to the increasing urbanisation of the world's population, which is driving up the need for poultry feed in establishments like corporate offices and hypermarkets.

Market Introduction:

Farmers feed ducks, turkeys, hens, geese, and other domestic birds with poultry feed. To provide a highly nutritious diet that maintains the health of poultry birds and improves the quality of end products like meat and eggs, modern feed is made by carefully choosing and combining components. The most crucial nutrients for poultry birds' growth, reproduction, and overall health are minerals, vitamins, carbohydrates, proteins, and water. Carbs and lipids provide the majority of the energy needed for development. For chicken birds, protein is also an important energy source, especially when their diet of fat and carbohydrates is restricted. The need for poultry feed is increasing due to the lack of anti-nutritional elements such as phytic acid and the effects of feeding poultry birds without a plan on their digestive systems. Furthermore, most contemporary chicken meals consist of grain and protein supplements such as soybean oil meal, mineral supplements, and vitamin supplements. The weight and age of the hens, their rate of growth, how quickly they lay eggs, the weather (cold or wet weather encourages higher energy expenditure), and the amount of nutrition they get from foraging all affect how much feed is needed as well as how much nutrition it contains. This makes a large variety of feed compositions available. The addition of less expensive local components results in further variations. Healthy fowl need a good supply of water, an appropriate amount of protein and carbs, and the essential vitamins and dietary elements.

High raw material price- The cost of raw materials like grains, soybean meal, and other feed ingredients impacts the chicken feed business. Chicken feed manufacturers may experience higher production costs and lower profit margins due to price volatility in these commodities. The environmental effects of the chicken business are being closely examined, especially about emissions and waste management. Stricter rules and higher production costs result from pollution and resource usage worries. Avian influenza outbreaks and other illness epidemics are a risk for poultry operations. Because of trade restrictions, decreased productivity, and bird culling, these outbreaks may result in large financial losses.


Increase in the demand for organic meat- To ensure meat safety, concerns regarding food safety have increased demand for premium chicken feed. Growing farm owner awareness of the importance of maintaining a healthy animal diet is another factor propelling the growth of the poultry feed industry. As a result, they are switching from ordinary chicken feed to premium and functional varieties that reduce the risk of infections, injuries, metabolic issues, and acidosis while also strengthening the animals' resilience to enzootic diseases. A positive outlook for the industry has also been created by a rise in the demand for organic meat from consumers in industrialised nations and by adopting cutting-edge techniques for raising animals and maintaining strict farming standards.
