The trend of using feed amino acids to increase the feed conversion ratio in livestock, subsequently resulting in an increased production of animal-based products, has increased the competitive rivalry among players.
ADM is one of the leading companies in the animal feed additives industry and is known for its premier-quality feed. The company operates globally, which helps it achieve a greater market share at a global level. The strategic acquisitions made by the company, along with its investments, have helped in establishing a global presence. ADM Alliance Nutrition, Inc. (US), a subsidiary of ADM, offers high-quality feed ingredients and feed. The company also provides customized technical services and is involved in research & development activities to optimize efficiency and increase profitability. New opportunities in the feed industry, such as the demand for natural products, can help in increasing the profitability of the company. In June 2017, ADM entered into a strategic collaboration with Anco Animal Nutrition Competence (Austria), which allowed ADM to offer amino acid products offered under Anco’s line of specialty feed ingredients. In January 2017, ADM acquired Crosswind Industries (US), a producer of dry-expanded, dual-texture, semi-dry, and semi-moist treat products for pets.
