Market Dynamics


Technological advancements in the automatic feeding systems market are expected to drive the market.

The primary factor driving the global automatic feeding systems market is the increasing adoption of advanced smart farming technologies by commercial animal farms in developed countries in order to increase production efficiency and reduce input costs. In today's market, unstable profits among cattle growers have led to an increase in the adoption of advanced feeding systems to cut costs and improve efficiency. The smart feeding solution has the potential to save at least 2 hours of labor per day while also improving performance and lowering feed and capital costs significantly. The installation of advanced automated feeding systems is expected to cut feed waste by half and increase milk productivity by 5 litres per cow per day. For example, the GEA group's Belt Feeder feed distributor is small, flexible, and cost-effective. It has many advantages, including the ability to feed multiple groups of animals in a day, a more productive feed management system, and the use of a conveyor belt to start the feeding process. DeLaval introduced the OptiDuo robotic feed refresher in 2019, with various economic and technical advantages over existing automatic feeding systems. OptiDuo's technical advantages include increased productivity, improved work efficiency, and improved adaptability to feed changes. The Automatic Feeding DairyFeed C 8000, manufactured by GEA, comes with high-quality stainless steel feeding basins along with sensors in the feeding box to identify each animal. These efficient and productive feeding systems are expected to boost the market globally.

Growing demand for food and dairy products is expected to boost the automatic feeding systems market.

Due to the continuously increasing global population coupled with the nutritional requirements that are essential for human beings, the demand for dairy products such as milk, cheese and butter has grown. According to data, in 2020, approximately 532 million tons of cow milk, compared to the 492 million tons of milk that was produced in 2019, and 21 million tons of cheese was produced and these numbers are expected to grow during the forecast period. In the meat industry, poultry is the most popular type of processed meat, accounting for approximately 40% of the global market, according to data. Due to this existing and potential growing demand for dairy products and meats, it is essential for the farm animals to be fed qualitatively and regularly to ensure a good yield. Therefore, these factors are expected to boost the demand for the automatic feeding systems market.


The primary factors impeding the growth of the global automatic feeding systems market are a lack of community awareness of automated feed equipment and the increasing presence of semi-automatic feeding equipment in developing nations.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

COVID-19 pandemic has affected industries all over the world, including the automatic feeding systems market. The agriculture industry was affected due to supply chain disruptions and travel restrictions which hindered many farmers from importing in or selling their produce to the local market, thus affecting their income. Since setting up automatic feeding systems requires a high operational cost, the demand for them dropped significantly during the first half of the pandemic. But after a year, governments all over the world have implemented certain precautions and measures which has enabled businesses to resume. As global economies steadily recover, the demand for meat and dairy products is expected to increase, and hence the demand for automatic feeding systems will increase too.

Segment Analysis

Based on Product Type

The Global Automatic Feeding Systems market is segmented by Product Type into Conveyor Belt systems, Self-propelled Systems, Rail-Mounted systems and Others.

Due to their high efficiency and low maintenance nature, self-propelled systems are expected to grow at a faster rate globally during the forecast period. Many technological advancements in the self-propelled feeding systems market are expected to boost its growth. The primary advantages of using self-propelled systems over competitors include high loading capacity, the ability to provide nutritional TMR, and high efficiency. For instance, in November 2020, Triotrac M, a high-tech self-propelled feed mixer, manufactured by Trioliet, was created with a 14m3 load capacity and includes one vertical auger and a cutting-loading system with rotor to load feed into the mixing tub. The Transfeed Rover is a self-propelled feeding robot for up to 300 animals that can also mix due to power supply via rails during dispensing which conserves both time and energy. The rover is equipped with a mixing tank of a capacity of almost 4 cubic metres and boasts a turning radius of only 1.5m. It also saves a lot of energy, operating on a connected load of only 7.7kW. As a result of these innovations, the self-propelled segment of feeding systems is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period.

Based on End-Use

The Global Automatic Feeding Systems market based on End-use is segmented into Poultry farms, Cattle Farms, Swine Farms and Others.


Based on Region

The Global Automatic Feeding Systems market based on Region is segmented into North America, Europe, South America, Asia-Pacific and Middle East & Africa.


Because of the increased installation of automated and self-propelled feed systems across the major livestock producing nations, Europe is expected to dominate the global automatic feeding systems market. Increasing labour shortages and increased investment activities by farmers across the EU to boost productivity are expected to drive growth in the European market for automated feeding systems. The growing demand for dairy products is also a reason for the domination of Europe. According to data, in 2020, approximately 9 million tons of cheese was consumed in Europe, and this is estimated to reach over 15 million by 2025. Production volume was highest in Netherlands (960 million tons) and Denmark (460 million tons) in 2019. The European Union produces the most cow milk in the world, with over 157 million metric tons produced in 2020. In that year, the EU had over 22 million dairy cows, second only to India, which had 56 million milk cows. To ensure that these demands are met, it is necessary for the feeding processes of the farm animals to be qualitative, efficient and productive. The high presence of advanced automation companies, as well as increased awareness among livestock growers, are also contributing to the growth of Europe's automatic feeding systems market. Furthermore, the presence of a large average herd size and a high capital cost through manual feeding techniques and labor benefits automated feeding systems.

Competitive Landscape

The Global Automatic Feeding Systems market is fragmented with various key players competing to hold a significant market share. The feeding systems market is driven by product launches, mergers and acquisitions and new product innovations by the key players.
