Animal Nutrition Phosphorus Industry: Key Factors behind Market’s Rapid Growth

According to a research report “Feed Phosphates Market by Type (Dicalcium, Monocalcium, Mono-dicalcium, Defluorinated, and Tricalcium), Livestock (Ruminants, Swine, Poultry, and Aquaculture), Form (Powder and Granule), and Region – Global Forecast to 2028″ published by MarketsandMarkets, the feed phosphates market is estimated at USD 2.6 billion in 2023 and is projected to reach USD 3.2 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 4.0% from 2023 to 2028. Feed phosphates contribute to the overall health and performance of animals, including bone development, energy metabolism, and immune function. Livestock and poultry farmers are increasingly aware of the benefits of feed phosphate in enhancing animal well-being, leading to their higher adoption.

Livestock Phosphate Feed Market DriverRise in consumption of meat and dairy products

The demand for meat, eggs, and dairy products in developing countries has also increased significantly over the past few years. According to Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), in 2021, global milk production, comprising approximately 81% cow milk, 15% buffalo milk, and 4% from goats, sheep, and camels combined, increased by 1.1% to reach approximately 887 million metric tonnes (Mt). This growth was primarily fueled by increased output in India and Pakistan, attributed to the expansion of dairy herds and improved availability of fodder, aided by favorable monsoon rains. According to OECD 2021, the per capita consumption of dairy products is projected to rise by 0.4% per year to reach 21.9 kg (milk solids equivalent) by 2031 in high-income countries. According to the same source, in comparison, low-middle-income countries are expected to experience an annual increase of 2.0% to reach 21.2 kg, while low-income countries are anticipated to see a 1.5% annual increase to reach 5.4 kg. Utilizing feed phosphates in dairy cattle diets can lead to improved feed efficiency. The presence of adequate phosphorus and other essential minerals in the feed enhances nutrient absorption and utilization in the rumen and digestive tract. As a result, dairy cows can convert feed into milk more efficiently, reducing wastage and enhancing overall feed efficiency.

The South America market is projected to register a significant CAGR for the phosphate-based feeds market.

The livestock sector of South America has also been witnessing exponential growth over the years owing to the steady demand brought on by the rise in meat consumption and poultry products.

According to OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook 2021-2030, the export of meat is concentrated, and it is expected that the three leading meat-exporting countries – Brazil, the European Union, and the United States – will maintain a stable combined share of approximately 60% in the global meat exports over the forecast period. In 2021, Brazil, the top poultry meat exporter, is projected to become the largest beef exporter, holding a 22% market share. This rise in meat consumption and growth of the domestic livestock sector are expected to contribute to the growth of the feed phosphates industry.

Poultry segment of the feed phosphates market by livestock is projected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Based on livestock, the poultry segment estimated to register the highest growth rate between 2023-2028. Feed phosphates, including DCP and MCP, have gained regulatory approval and are widely accepted as safe and effective feed additives for poultry. Compliance with food safety regulations and guidelines encourages the use of feed phosphates in the poultry industry.
