[149 Pages Report] The automated feeding systems market is estimated to account for about USD 5.1 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach a value of about USD 7.4 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.6%. The growing size of dairy farms, the increasing focus of major companies on technological advancements as well as product launches and developments, and substantial cost savings associated with automated feeding systems are the major driving factors for the market. On the other hand, the high upfront cost is a restraining factor for the automated feeding systems market.

Automated Feeding Systems Market

The ruminants segment is estimated to dominate the global automated feeding systems market in 2018

By livestock, the ruminant segment is estimated to dominate the global market for automated feeding systems in 2018. Hardware and software solutions enable automatic feeding, resulting in accurate and rapid livestock feeding management. The labor cost associated with feeding management reduces drastically due to higher automation and fewer labor requirements. Due to these advantages, the market for automated feeding systems for ruminants is projected to grow significantly during the forecast period.

The filling & screening segment is estimated to account for the largest share in the automated feeding systems market in 2018.

By function, the filling & screening segment is estimated to account for the largest share in the market for automated feeding systems in 2018. The belt feeders combine a conveyor belt and sliding scraper. This allows the distribution of small amounts of raw feed at short intervals to various groups of animals. This automated filling & screening process in feeding offers consistently high reliability and a reduced daily workload.

The services segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period in the automated feeding systems market.

Various services are used to integrate hardware and software in automated feeding systems. Service providers are engaged in handling a majority of operations related to hardware installation, software functioning, and output analysis pertaining to precision farming solutions.

Automated Feeding Systems Market

The Asia Pacific market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The growth of the Asia Pacific automated feeding systems market is attributed to the increasing awareness among consumers regarding the importance of automated feeding systems. Further, with rapid economic growth in the region, the demand for meat is rising particularly in China, India, Japan, and Australia. This increased demand for meat products has driven the meat production in this region, which in turn, has contributed to the market growth.
