Feed Binders Market

Feed Binders Market by Type (Clay, Plant Gums & Starches, Gelatin, Molasses, Lignosulphonates, Hemicellulose, CMC & Other Hydrocolloids, Wheat Gluten & Middlings), Livestock (Poultry, Swine, Ruminants, Other Animals), Region - Global Forecast to 2025

Report Code: AGI 2304 Dec, 2019, by marketsandmarkets.com

[172 Pages Report] The global feed binders market size is estimated to account for a value of USD 4.8 billion in 2019 and is projected to grow at a CAGR 3.4% from 2019, to reach a value of USD 5.9 million by 2025. The rise in demand for feed due to the increased consumption of livestock-based products is projected to drive the growth of the market. The increasing awareness among manufacturers about the benefits offered by feed binders is projected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. Feed binders serve as an additive that can reduce the dusty and powdery nature of fine ground feed materials. In order to reduce the total operating cost, from manufacturing to its consumption stage, feed binders are observed to increase the health benefits of feed materials, and thus, are widely being opted by feed manufacturers.

Feed Binder Market

By type, the Lignosulphonates, hemicellulose, CMC & other hydrocolloids segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the feed binders market during the forecast period.

The Lignosulphonates, hemicellulose, CMC & other hydrocolloids segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the market. They are used due to their binding, dispersing, and emulsifying properties in the manufacture of feed products, to provide structural integrity. It helps in adding more steam during the production of compressed pellets than hemicellulose, and hence, enhances the overall productivity. Moreover, these products are easily digestible by ruminants, particularly cattle, sheep, and goats. Hemicellulose extracts, along with molasses, can increase the pellet durability and improve intra-particle cohesion, due to which it witnesses significant demand.

By livestock, the poultry segment is projected to dominate the feed binders market during the forecast period.

The poultry segment is projected to hold the largest share in the feed binders market during the forecast period. Feed binders, such as clay and Lignosulfonates, are some of the significant binders used in poultry feed for high-quality and quantity production. On a global level, the total poultry production continues to increase, and with such growth in poultry production and consumption, it has become essential for meat producers to focus on the quality of meat. This is projected to drive the growth of the feed binders market, as it provides a complete nutritional feed for poultry.

Feed Binder Market

The increasing demand for feed binders in the Asia Pacific and Latin American regions is projected to drive the growth of the feed binders market.

Asia Pacific and Latin America are witnessing a high demand for feed binders for use mainly in the poultry feed industry. The population in developing countries of the Asia Pacific region—such as India, China, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Thailand—are projected to increase the consumption of meat products at an annual rate of 2.4% till 2030, according to the FAO report on “World Agriculture: Towards 2015/2030.” These factors have increased the demand for high-quality feed, and thereby, for feed binders to enhance the structural integrity and reduce the loss of feed ingredients.

Similarly, in South America, Brazil witnessed the presence of the largest cattle population in 2017, with a headcount of 330 million, and is projected to grow at a rate higher than the regional average, according to the FAO. It is projected that the rising consumer awareness for nutritious products and the requirement for high-quality meat products can establish a strong demand for feed binders.
