top 5 companies in the global swine feed market


Key players include DSM Animal Nutrition, Lallemand Inc., Cargill Incorporated, ADM Animal Nutrition, BASF SE, Kent Nutrition Group, and Novus International, among others. The global swine feed market reached a value of nearly USD 119.3 billion in 2020. The industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.8% over the forecast period of 2022-2027.


Pigs are farmed in many countries, though the leading consuming countries are in Asia. This is due to the significant international and even intercontinental trade in live and slaughtered pigs. Despite having the world's largest pig population, China is a net importer of pigs and has been increasing its imports during its economic development. The largest exporters of pigs are the United States, the European Union, and Canada.

As a part of modern livestock management, feed additives play an essential role in animal nutrition. They improve the characteristics of the feed to render health benefits by improving the digestibility and increasing the nutritional content and palatability of the meal. Various feed additives are blended with the spread in varying quantities, depending on the breed, and growing phase and the surrounding environment and its impact on them. For instance, the calcium content required for a starter pig is 0.8%, whereas it is 0.6% in a finisher pig.

The growth in pork production has simultaneously helped develop the swine feed market, as feed cost is the major component, accounting for 70% to 80% of the total cost of pig meat production. Therefore, the price of feed ingredients has a substantial impact on the price of producing pork. Higher feed prices can quickly convert profits into losses.
