Market Analysis and Size

Over the last decade, there has been a considerable growth in awareness of the nutritional benefits of seafood, which has raised the consumption rate of aquaculture products. Aquaculture goods, particularly farmed salmon and shrimp, are very nutritious food sources that contain considerable amounts of vital proteins, vitamins (A, B, D, and Niacin), and minerals (iodine, iron, phosphorus, and zinc). As a result, increased demand for aquatic products will drive the aquaculture industry, resulting in market growth over the forecasted period.

The algae-based animal feed and ingredients market was valued at USD 2.58 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 4.52 billion by 2029, registering a CAGR of 7.30% in 2022-2029.

They are both high in nutrients and are incorporated to entire foods, snacks, and supplements for pets.

Algae-Based Animal Feed and Ingredients Market Dynamics

This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:


  • Increased Requirement of Algae-Based Animal Feed for Animal Health

Proper nutrition or ingredient consumption helps keep domestic animals stress-free and encourages excellent milk supply high in protein and fat. It is divided into two categories: forage and fodder. Including algae in cows' diets resulted in less natural degradation of unsaturated fatty acids and a higher concentration of these beneficial chemicals in meat and milk. Another significant example is the feeding of algae rich in omega-3 fatty acids to chickens, which then circulates through the food chain, resulting in the presence of this cholesterol-lowering chemical in eggs. It has also been stated that algal animal feed is used in food for cats, dogs, aquarium fish, decorative birds, horses, cows, and breeding bulls. Algae have a promising future as a source of animal feed. Algae are a high protein, nutritious, natural, and low-cost food choice for animals that have the potential to replace the current expensive grains supplied to animals. These chemicals prevent vitamin shortages and improve the pace of growth of animals as well as their health and well-being. Therefore, the market is estimated to flourish over the forecasted period due to this factor.

Increased Meat and Dairy Consumption

The market is being pushed by rising meat and dairy production and consumption and the high nutritional value of aquaculture products, which has resulted in an increase in demand. Therefore, the increased meat and dairy production and consumption are expected to drive market expansion.

Furthermore, the increasing meat and dairy production and consumption coupled with the increasing consumption rate of aquaculture products will further propel the growth rate of algae-based animal feed and ingredients market. Additionally, the surging expansion of animal feed as well as the agriculture industry, rising expenditure capacity of consumers will also drive market value growth.
