This report covers the impact of COVID-19 on this global market

According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Fermented Feed Ingredients Market is accounted for $43.20 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $89.70 billion by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 11% during the forecast period. The animal nutrition industry's division that deals with feed additives and ingredients made through carefully regulated fermentation procedures is known as the fermented feed ingredients. The nutritional value, digestibility, and general quality of the feed are improved by using particular microbes during fermentation. These fermented feed components are added to the diets of animals raised for food, such as chickens, pigs, cattle, and fish, to enhance their health, growth potential, and feed efficiency.

According to the American Feed Industry Association, as much as $20 billion worth of feed ingredients are purchased each year

Market Dynamics:


Increasing importance of food preservation and fermentation

As the world faces the challenge of feeding an ever-increasing population, ensuring food security and reducing food waste has become paramount. Fermentation offers an effective and natural method of preserving food, including grains and plant materials used in animal feed. By fermenting feed ingredients, their shelf life is extended, and nutritional value is enhanced, providing a sustainable solution to store and utilize surplus food resources for livestock. This increased focus on food preservation through fermentation aligns with the industry's goal of promoting sustainable practices and maximizing resource efficiency, thereby fueling the demand for fermented feed ingredients.


Inconsistent availability of quality raw material

The sourcing of suitable raw materials for fermentation can be unpredictable, as it depends on factors like weather conditions and agricultural practices. This inconsistency can impact production volumes and lead to supply chain disruptions. Additionally, ensuring a consistent supply of high-quality raw materials is crucial for maintaining product efficacy and meeting industry standards. These constraints may limit market growth and necessitate investments in research, technology, and efficient supply chain management to mitigate the impact of these challenges.


Growing demand for fermented ingredients in personal care and cosmetics

Fermentation offers various bioactive compounds and beneficial properties that are advantageous for skincare and hair care products. As consumers seek natural and sustainable alternatives in the personal care industry, fermented ingredients have gained popularity due to their potential to promote skin health and rejuvenation. This emerging trend opens avenues for feed ingredient manufacturers to explore new markets and applications beyond traditional animal nutrition. By capitalizing on this opportunity and diversifying their product offerings, the fermented feed ingredients industry can expand its reach and tap into the growing demand for natural and environmentally friendly ingredients in the cosmetics and personal care sector.


Restricted temperature and pH operational range

Fermentation processes are highly sensitive to temperature and pH conditions, and any deviations can lead to suboptimal product quality or even fermentation failure. This limitation may restrict the choice of raw materials or microorganisms used in the fermentation process, affecting the diversity and availability of fermented feed ingredients. Moreover, operational challenges related to maintaining precise temperature and pH levels can increase production costs and reduce overall efficiency. To address this threat, research and technological advancements are essential to develop robust fermentation techniques that can adapt to varying environmental conditions while ensuring consistent and high-quality output.

Covid-19 Impact:

The COVID-19 pandemic had both direct and indirect impacts on the Fermented Feed Ingredients Market. The disruptions in the global supply chain, lockdown measures, and reduced workforce availability affected the production and distribution of fermented feed ingredients. Moreover, the livestock industry faced challenges due to temporary closures of slaughterhouses and processing plants, leading to fluctuations in demand for feed. However, the increased focus on food security and sustainable agriculture during the pandemic provided an opportunity for the fermented feed ingredients market to showcase its potential in improving animal health and performance.

The food & beverage segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The food & beverage segment held the largest share in the market owing to the increasing demand in use of fermented ingredients in dairy and bread goods. Beer, yogurt, and cheese are just a few examples of foods and beverages that frequently use fermented components. Fermented amino acids are frequently employed in food goods, and different amino acids provide those products different flavors. With the development of microbiology and biotechnology, the market for fermented ingredients has expanded to include food and drinks as a major business.

The cider segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

During the projection period, the cider segment is expected to have the greatest CAGR. Cleaning, hair washing, food preservation, and skin function all benefit from its use. In order to extend food's shelf life, producers are using preservatives in a greater number of foods, which is likely to raise consumer knowledge of its utilization and fuel demand. Due to the rise in wine consumption over the past several years, India is the country where cider is growing the fastest. Because young people make up the bulk of the population, they favour trying new things, which is helping the wine business flourish.

Region with largest share:

The Europe region market is estimated to witness the highest share of the global Fermented Feed Ingredients market during the forecast period. Europe, a prominent location for livestock production and animal feed consumption. As a result of their demonstrated advantages in enhancing animal health, performance, and feed efficiency, fermented feed components are in greater demand. Fermented feed ingredients are becoming more popular among European farmers and feed producers as an eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to traditional additives. Additionally, strict restrictions on the use of antibiotics in animal production are encouraging the use of fermented feed as a natural way to improve animal intestinal health.

Region with highest CAGR:

The Asia Pacific region is expected to have the highest growth rate over the forecast period, driven by its vast and expanding livestock industry. With countries like China, India, and Vietnam being major producers and consumers of meat, poultry, and dairy products, the demand for high-quality animal feed is on the rise. Fermented feed ingredients offer several advantages, such as improved nutrient digestibility and enhanced gut health, which align with the region's focus on optimizing animal productivity. Additionally, the rising awareness of the environmental benefits of fermented feed, including reduced greenhouse gas emissions, further fuels the market's growth in the Asia Pacific.
