The market for feed phosphate is projected to reach a value of USD 5.7 Billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of about 3% from 2015 to 2020. Feed phosphates are salts of phosphoric acid extracted from phosphate rock, added into animal feed to improve the nutrient content, optimized animal performance, enhanced feed digestibility, and for preventative health maintenance. It also helps in promoting growth during the various stages of life cycle, developing fertility in animals, and acting as the best source of calcium for bone and skeleton development. Feed phosphates optimize the nutritional value of feed, in turn enhancing the quality of meat and dairy. It is fundamental to the growth, maintenance, and repair of animal body tissues. The primary ingredient phosphorus, alongside with calcium and magnesium, is important for the proper formation and growth of healthy bones and teeth in animals.
The main driving factors in this market are the growing consumption of meat around the world. Poultry meat has increased by 76.6% per kilo per capita and pig meat by 19.7%, the major leap in consumption is mainly by the middle class population due to increasing disposable income. Livestock development by government organization has helped in promoting animal husbandry among the population, especially among the poorer sections of the population by emphasizing the importance of animal nutrition in animal welfare. Industrialization of the meat industry, specifically the poultry and pork segments has been an important contributor in the feed phosphate industry with rapid growth in the consumption of lean meat due to increased awareness of its health benefits. The important restraints in the market are the increasing cost of raw materials and global scarcity of phosphate reserves as it is a non-renewable resource. Opportunities that effect the dynamics of this industry include increase in demand for natural feed products and substitutes such as phytase are being used in the manufacture of animal feed as blends to decrease the high cost of manufacture. Large numbers of companies have also invested in research and development for sustainable use of phosphate.
Feed Phosphate Market can be segmented by type into Monocalcium Phosphate, Dicalcium Phosphate, Mono-Dicalcium Phosphate, Tricalcium Phosphate, Defluorinated Phosphate and Others. With Monocalcium phosphate being the largest segment owing to its larger availability and its use in the Asia- Pacific region for animal maintenance and bone health. It is also the most easily available form of phosphate and a cost-effective option to be used in feed blends. Feed phosphate is further segmented on the basis of livestock, into poultry, swine, cattle, aquatic animals, and others. With raise in awareness of the harm of red meat consumption, lean meats such as poultry has been the fastest growing segment followed by swine.
The market is further segmented on the region basis into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Africa and South America. Asia Pacific is the largest market for feed phosphate with XX% of the market share and a CAGR of XX%. Followed by North America with XX% of the market share and a CAGR of XX%. With rapid growth in the pork and poultry industries in countries such as China and India.
Key players in the market include The Mosaic Company, EuroChem, Potash Corp., PhosAgro, and OCP Group. To gain market share, these companies are adapting numerous market strategies like innovative product development, partnerships, mergers & acquisitions, and expansion of existing facilities.
