The global automated feeding system market was valued at US$423.621 million in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.05% over the forecast period to reach a total market size of US$598.241 million in 2027.

Animal feed plays a pivotal role in the daily diet of animals as it is able to facilitate the delivery of all the required essential nutrients and minerals to improve the overall health of the animals and improve the quality of the produce. Growing concerns among livestock owners in order to effectively mix and provide inappropriate feed rations to the different livestock and the animals according to their daily needs is increasing the demand and adoption of the high-end systems, which is, therefore, leading to a surge in the market growth of automated feeding systems.

Moreover, the size of livestock farms such as poultry farms and dairy farms is increasing, which is attributable to the increasing demand for products such as meat and milk among consumers. This encourages the livestock owners to reduce the operational costs, increase their profitability and effectively manage the health of all the animals, resulting in an increase in the adoption of automatic feeding systems, thus bolstering the market growth of the automated feeding system further over the forecast period.

Restraints in the market

However, there is a high amount of cost associated with the purchase and installation of these systems, which is hindering the adoption of automated feeding systems among small livestock owners, thus hampering the market’s growth. In addition, for the proper and effective management and maintenance of the automated feeding systems, there is a requirement for skilled labour and personnel, which increases the cost that needs to be incurred by the farmers. Therefore these factors limit the market growth to some extent. Moreover, the presence of conventional feeding systems is also contributing to the growth of the automated feeding system market.

Major developments to support market growth

Key market players are increasingly adopting various growth strategies, including product launches and partnerships, to expand their market reach, which will contribute to the market growth of automated feeding systems during the next five years. For example, in April 2019, DeLaval announced the launch of its new product, which is an automated feed pusher and remixer and is called the “OptiDuo.” This product is also referred to as a robotic feed remixer due to the fact that it premixes the feed apart from just pushing it. Some of the features of this product include a navigation system installed in them, which ensures that the robot is in the right places and feeding the right animals and helps the unit from coming into close proximity to people with the help of installed bumpers. Another feature is the adaptive drive system, which allows adjusting how to mix the feed based on the type of feed, such as straw, hay, and fresh grass. This product can be integrated with the DeLaval body conditioning system, which aids the livestock owners or cattle farmers in order to analyze the health of the cattle and adjusting the ration of feed according to that. Apart from this, the DeLaval automated feeding system has some benefits, such as reducing feed waste, an increase in the yield of milk in cows by 4.4 lb per day, and most importantly, a good amount of reduction in labour costs. In February 2019, Roxell announced the launch of its new automated feeding system called the “Titan,” which is specifically designed to cater to larger birds such as turkeys. Also, it is one of the largest pans available on the market and can be easily cleaned. Their product is their second-largest feeder offered in the automated feeding system for turkeys and other large birds. Other features include greater durability and quicker cleaning.

Conveyor feeding systems to hold a significant market share

Conveyor feeding systems are projected to surge at a notable pace over the forecast period and hold a significant share of the market. This is attributable to the fact that there is an increased level of effectiveness by which the feed is delivered to the animals, as the speed of the conveyor can be controlled, and in addition, it is provided with a scraper allowing the feed to be delivered accurately. Therefore there is increased adoption of this type of system among livestock owners.

Mixing and controlling to contribute to the market growth

Mixing and Controlling is estimated to hold a considerable amount of share in the market on account of the fact that there is an increasing concern among the livestock owners in order to provide their animals with the feed containing the proper mixture of raw materials in so that the animals can receive proper nutrients and vitamins. In addition, the control on the rate and the quantities of raw materials is also added in order to not overdo the content in the animal feed as it and cause digestive problems and other problems as well, which can degrade the quality of the produce.

The North American region to show considerable growth over the forecast period

Geographically, the global automated feeding system market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific. The North American region is projected to hold a significant market share and show considerable growth over the forecast period owing to the fact there is an increasing number of investments in the R&D of automated feeding systems to enhance the capabilities of these systems and encourage the adoption among livestock owners. For example, Lakeland College announced that they had received around $117,026 in funding from federal sources for purchasing SmartFeed-Pro systems and conducting research in order to improve the feeding systems.

Key Developments in the Market:

  • In April 2022, BioMar, a leading aquafeed supplier, announced the acquisition of the global manufacturer of acoustic feeding technology for the shrimp farming market. Through this acquisition, the former aims to develop and develop new synergy among feed solutions and farming technologies. AQ1 offers feeding control and sizing system technology solutions for the aquatic industry and researchers for 25 different species of fish and shrimp. Through this development, the duo can optimize feeding practices and integrate comprehensive analytics, smart feed systems,  advanced feed solutions, and effective farm management.
  • In April 2019, Epson Robots, the top SCARA robot manufacturer in the world, announced the addition of the IntelliFlex 530 Feeding System to its IntelliFlexTM product line. The IntelliFlex 530 features a new feeder size that can support components from 30 to 150 mm in size, after the IntelliFlex 240 (introduced in April), which can handle parts from 5 to 40 mm in size. The versatile feeding system can be used in medical, consumer, automotive, and electronic industries, among a few others. The new IntelliFlex 530 is very well suited for applications and is perfect for handling plastic, rubber, and metal parts.

COVID-19 Insights

COVID-19 had a significant impact on the global automatic feeding system market. The onset of the pandemic and its rapid spread had caused multiple countries to enforce mandated lockdowns and social distancing measures. Consequently, the operational activities across multiple industries slowed down. Furthermore, the economic recession amid the pandemic slowed down the investments in the automatic feeding solutions industries, thereby slowing its growth.
