“The organic feed market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.8%, in terms of value.”
The global organic feed market size is estimated at USD 6.8 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 10.1 billion by 2025, recording a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period. In Europe, countries such as Germany and France are projected to witness high growth prospects in the years to come, as they are one of the largest producers of wheat, barley, and soybean at the global level. In addition, a large number of organic food producers are projected to drive the demand for organic feed in the region. In addition, the livestock industry is witnessing significant growth in Asia Pacific and South America due to the increase in demand for organic animal-based products, such as eggs, milk, and meat products. These factors have led to an increase in the production and demand for livestock products. Thus, the price of organic feed grains has also increased, which in turn, is projected to increase the sales of organic feed in the coming years.

Pellets are the most common and preferred form of organic feed. They also contain a high level of binders, as compared to the mashed form of organic feed. The pelleted form of organic feed stimulates early feed intake. Pelleting of organic feed also reduces wastage, as it is easy to feed to the animals, convenient to store, and is also preferred by backyard chicken farmers.
