The global compound feed market is highly fragmented, with many companies operating in the industry. The large-scale demand from livestock growing farmers and promising growth potential has motivated the leading feed companies towards compound business.
However, companies such as Cargill, Nutreco, COFCO, and ForFarmers NV are witnessing significant consumer loyalty and brand recognition. Other key companies in the market include Weston Milling Animal Nutrition, Charoen Pokphand Food, and Land O'Lakes.
Most of these companies are rapidly expanding their production capacity and product portfolio to hold a considerable market share. Also, the market has witnessed few acquisitions and partnerships, representing consolidation at the top level.
However, the lack of commercial compound feed production in some underdeveloped and developing countries provides room for market expansion. Efforts to increase awareness of the benefits of compound feed in these countries will offer high growth opportunities.
