Poultry Feed Production Market In The United States

Estimated to be worth $55 billion, poultry feed production industry in United States is one of the biggest in the world. lts value accounts for close to 45% of total animal feeds industry in the US. This high percentage reflects the fact that poultry products such as chicken, turkey, and quail account for around half of America's total meat consumption. To many Americans, poultry products are a relatively cheap source of protein. The popularity of these products has made America to be the world's biggest poultry producer and one of its top exporters. 

Thanks to both strong domestic and global demand, each year American poultry feed companies produce close to 60 metric tonnes of poultry feeds. The industry is estimated to grow at a rate of 2.3% per annum for the next five years. This growth is mainly due to increasing per capita consumption of poultry not just in the United States but also in other parts of the world, mainly emerging markets such as India, Turkey, and Brazil.

Factors That Promote The Growth Of Poultry Feed Production

The recent banning of use of antibiotics as a poultry growth promoter also presents a major growth opportunity for poultry feed plant. Farmers will now be compelled to seek new products to quicken the growth of their poultry. Unless an effective alternative to antibiotics is found, farmers will largely resort to increasing their uptake of poultry feeds. This is certainly good news for the poultry feed processing industry. Moreover, the ban makes it a lot harder for foreign producers to export poultry to the US because of the stricter requirements. This leaves room for greater growth of local poultry suppliers and feeds producers as well.
