Starter Feed Market - Global Industry
Insights, Trends, 2018-2026
Starter feed is manufactured by mixing two or more nutritional ingredients such as oats,
wheat, corn, soy, and others. The feed, which is enriched with essential proteins, amino
acids, vitamins, and minerals is used to enhance immunity systems and digestion in
livestock animals such as chickens, ruminants, pigs, and aquatic animals. Starter feed
is manufactured and marketed in the form of mash, pellets, crumbles and various
others. Extensive research and development have highlighted the benefits of starter
feed over conventional feed in the overall growth of animals. Therefore, animal breeders
are rapidly adopting starter feed products in order to increase production of livestock.
Market Dynamics
Key factors such as increasing awareness about health of livestock, increasing demand
for organic and healthier feed products, and rapid acceptance of starter feed, as an
effective alternative to conventional feed across the globe are projected to fuel growth of
global starter feed market over the forecast period. Furthermore, increasing demand for
livestock globally is boosting demand for variety of starter feed products. According to
the United States Department of Agriculture, global export of beef, broiler meat, and
pork is projected to increase by 5%, 2%, and 1% respectively in 2018. The global
production of beef, veal, pork, and broiler meat is projected to reach 63 million tons,
113.5 million tons, and 92.5 million tons respectively in 2018.

The availability of alternatives such as conventional feed and high manufacturing costs
are factors that restrain growth of the global starter feed market. Moreover, strict
government regulations imposed on use of feed ingredients in the manufacturing of
starter feed is a key challenge for manufacturers. For instance, regulation (EC) No
1829/2003 of the European Parliament on genetically modified feed provides an
authorization procedure for placing genetically modified feed into market, which also
includes feed additives produced from genetically modified organisms. Such regulations
forces manufacturers to maintain their product quality.
Market Outlook
On the basis of form, pellets segment accounted for major market share in global starter
feed market in 2016. Multiple advantages of pellets over other product forms such as
ease of handling and storage, and long lasting shelf life are major factors that drive
growth of this segment.
On the basis of livestock, poultry segment dominated the market in 2016. Favorable
growth of poultry industry along with increasing demand for eggs across the world is
expected to create potential opportunity for growth of this segment over the forecast
period. According to the United States Department of Agriculture Report, the total eggs
production in the U.S. was valued at 97 billion eggs in 2015 and rose to 102 billion eggs
in 2016.
Medicated starter feed is expected to gain major traction in the market over the forecast
period. Building a strong immunity through medicated starter feed is an effective
alternative to vaccination, which will prevent potential diseases in the early period of
growth. For instance, medicated starter feed is given to pigs to lower the incidence of
cervical lymphadenitis, which is caused by Streptococci of Group E. Coccidiosis is a
common intestinal disease found in chickens and it can be prevented by feeding
medicated starter feed to the chickens, which are not vaccinated for coccidiosis.
Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest growing region in the market over the forecast
period. Key players operating in the starter feed market are investing in Asia Pacific to
tap potential market in China, India, Australia, and various other economies. For
instance, in January 2018, Cargill Incorporated invested US$ 10 million to open a fish
feed plant in Andhra Pradesh, India. The plant possesses capacity of 90,000 tons per
year. Owing to such high capacity, Cargill Incorporated will be able to increase its fish
feed capacity in India to serve customers in the region. Such factors are projected to
have a positive impact on growth of starter feed market in Asia Pacific.
