The South America poultry feed market is evaluated at US$14.889 billion in 2020.

Farmers use the poultry feed to feed poultry birds, including chickens, geese, ducks, turkeys, and other domestic birds.  Modern feed is prepared by carefully selecting and blending components to provide a highly nutritious diet that maintains the health of poultry birds while also boosting the quality of end products like meat and eggs. Minerals, vitamins, carbohydrates, proteins, and water are the most important nutrients for poultry birds' development, reproduction, and health. The majority of the energy necessary for development comes from carbohydrates and fats. Protein is also a significant energy source for chicken, particularly when carbohydrate and fat intake are low.

In the forecast period of 2020-2027, rising preferences for animal protein, global growth of the egg and poultry industries, rising population, spreading health awareness regarding protein consumption, and the per capita consumption of meat are some of the factors that will certainly boost the growth of the poultry feed market. Furthermore, the prevalence of low-cost feed and expanding consumer preferences for white meat would further increase numerous prospects for the poultry feed market to grow throughout the projection period. 

On the other hand, volatility in raw material prices, as well as environmental concerns, are expected to stymie the poultry feed market's expansion throughout the forecast period.

In recent years, the broiler category has grown to become the largest by type.  Growing demand for chicken meat due to its high protein content has emerged as a significant driver of industry expansion. Broilers are raised solely to produce meat. Broiler farming is growing in response to the rising demand for chicken meat, fueled by the availability of protein-rich meat at a low cost. One of the most critical aspects of broiler farming is proper nutrition. In the poultry feed market, the layers category, on the other hand, ranked as the second-largest section. The primary purpose of layer farming is to produce eggs. As the world's population grows, so does the demand for food and energy, increasing layer production globally. The key demand drivers for expanding the layers category are rising per capita egg consumption and worldwide population growth.

In recent years, the amino acid in the additives segment has emerged as the largest in terms of volume and revenue, and it is expected to increase rapidly in the coming years. Because amino acid is one of the essential protein sources, it is imperative in poultry nutrition. Amino acid helps minimize the amount of soy protein in a monogastric animal's diet due to its high protein content.

South America is predicted to develop at a substantial CAGR over the forecast period. According to studies, Brazil's feed segment is the world's third-largest feed sector. This is primarily due to the country's high raw material production combined with rising meat consumption. Brazil has a high domestic feed consumption since it is a regional meat-producing hub. Argentina's poultry industry is expanding rapidly, with a concentration on exportation because chicken meat is the cheapest in the world in Argentina. The poultry sector dominates the Argentinian compound feed market, and it also consumes the majority of the feed. Brazil accounts for most chicken feed production in the region, owing to the country's rising poultry meat consumption. As a result, during the forecast period, this trend is likely to considerably drive the expansion of the poultry feed market in the region.

COVID-19 Impact

In the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, limitations aimed at containing it resulted in the closure of poultry feed companies worldwide, resulting in a feed scarcity for cattle farmers. As a result of the initial lockdown, the logistical system was disrupted, affecting the supply of chicken feed around the world. Argentina's chicken exports to several nations have declined due to the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. However, due to exemptions from lockdown regulations and a rise in poultry meat consumption, the poultry feed business flourished in the later stages.

Recent Development

SYNCRA, a chicken feed supplement developed by DuPont de Nemours and Company, was announced in March 2019 to improve the digestibility of nutrients in poultry production.

The National Livestock Mission (NLM) scheme was launched by the Indian government in 2022 to develop the animal husbandry sector. The scheme provides livestock farmers, SHGs, FPOs, and corporations with loans and subsidies, including a 50% subsidy and a lending facility.
