Growing adoption of pets among
people across the globe and treating them with the same emotion as a human are major growth factors for the market. Pet owners are sensitive about pet health; hence the quality
of pet food is a more important aspect rather than its price for a pet owner. In
the United States, 40% of pet owners with a household income of more than
US$350,000 spent more than US$500 on their pets every year. After the covid pandemic, 45% of millennial and Gen Z respondents agreed that they pay more attention to
pet health and wellness and buy more super premium food for their pets in 2021, as per the pet food industry. Such high emotional attachments of pet owners
towards pets are key factors in the feed safety testing market. As per American Feed
Industry Association (AFIA), Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) added a provision for pet food facilities managers to consider hygienic design in April
2022. In February 2022, the United States Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) issued a warning letter to Pet Center, Inc. after a follow-up inspection
of a California dog chew facility that uncovered various violations of FDA’s
Current Goods Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive
Controls requirements for animal food. Such malpractices with pet food caused harm to pets and their owners. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
warn pet owners not to feed a raw diet to pets as bacteria like Salmonella
and Listeria are found in raw pet food. With such concern about pet food and pet health, Animal Feed Testing is necessary for every pet food industry before revealing
their product in the market. Animal Feed Safety Testing Market Size is estimated to reach $3,463.2 million by 2030 and is poised to grow at an estimated CAGR of 8.1% over the forecast period of 2022-2030.
Animal Feed Safety Testing is used to evaluate the requirement for nutrient supplements and balance rations, both of which are essential for effective livestock production. In terms of Type, the Animal Feed Safety Testing Market is dominated by the testing services segment in 2021. The demand for high-quality animal feed is on the rise, which is fueling the expansion of feed testing services. Due to the tight regulations imposed on the quality of dairy and meat products in the global markets, animal feed testing has become an essential part of the livestock and meat-growing sectors. The food of an animal has a significant impact on its health, as well as the quality of its meat. As a result, producers of meat animals such as poultry, swine, aquaculture and others are focusing on feed testing processes. The market for animal feed safety testing is rising as animal rearing activities for dairy, egg and meat products increase globally. The amount of feed produced globally increased by 1% in 20220, reaching 1,187.7 million metric tonnes, according to the 2021 Alltech Global Feed Survey (MMT). The market for Animal Feed Safety Testing is expanding as a result of the increase in animal rearing, creating new prospects for these services.
The Animal Feed Safety Testing Market in North America is expected to grow due to the increasing awareness among pet owners and in the animal feed industry about food safety. Also, strict regulatory bodies for supervising and implementing regulations on pet food safety are equally responsible. As per Feed Strategy, 284 million tons of safe feed and pet food are consumed annually in the United States. Such growing demand for pet food and its supply by keeping good manufacturing practices are possible only with regulatory bodies working on animal feed safety in this region. In North America, the Food and Drug Administration is responsible for regulating animal feed and their safety testing. On January 14, 2022, The Interagency Food Safety Analytics Collaboration (IFSAC), which is a collaboration between FDA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) published its priorities for 2022-2023. Such strict regulatory authority and rising demand for safe animal feed further drive the Animal Feed Safety Testing Market.
Animal Feed Safety Testing Market Growth Drivers:
Growing Demand for Meat Products has Increased Demand for Animal Feed:
Increasing demand for meat and meat products by the food industry requires the animals to gain weight in minimum time, thereby surging the demand for animal feed. According to data released by United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation, global meat consumption grew by 1% in 2021. Consumption of animal protein is gaining the fastest growth in low and middle-income countries owing to changing lifestyles and eating habits. According to OECD-FAO, the global meat supply is expanding over the projection period, reaching 347 Mt by 2030. An increase in population growth and growing per capita meat consumption are major factors for the growing demand for meat products. As per capita consumption of animal protein increased in recent years in the U.S., the per capita red meat availability increased by 22.5 pounds in the year 2022. The U.S. Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) estimates that by 2050, the demand for food would grow by 60% and that between 2010 and 2050 production of animal proteins is expected to grow by around 1.7% per year, with meat production projected to rise by nearly 70%, aquaculture by 90% and dairy by 55%. Such high demand for animal protein continues to rise animal feed safety testing market. The surge in demand for meat and meat products positively impacts the demand for healthy animal feed in the market. Such increasing demand and production of meat and meat products across the globe boost the demand for healthy animal feed and the Animal Feed Safety Testing Market.
Rise in Adulteration in Animal Feed Surge Demand for Animal Feed Testing Market:
The increasing cases of animal feed adulteration with cheap quality ingredients have created avenues for animal feed testing. Growing animal food fraud in the animal food industry is one of the major concerns of animal feed manipulation or adulteration. Such fraud appears at a minute level with ill-handling of materials or misrepresentation of goods by changing labels. In 2021, the European Commission with the collaboration of The Alert and Cooperation Network (ACN), Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF), Administrative Assistance and Cooperation System (AAC) and the Food Fraud Network (FFN) sent 4607 notifications through RASFF with 4,102 related to food, which was almost a 20 percent increase compared to 2020. Animal feed adulteration is mainly found in costly food such as oil seed cakes with husk and non-edible oilseed cakes. Maize which is majorly used in poultry feed is adulterated with cobs dust and sand. Such adulteration in animal feed can lead to contamination and degradation of quality. Such increasing cases of adulteration in animal feed fuel the demand for animal feed safety testing to eliminate the risk of adulteration and contamination in animal feed and boost the growth of the Animal Feed Safety Testing Market.
In June 2022, Eurofins Scientific acquired Research For Hire, Inc. which is located near Porterville in Tulare County, California. This acquisition allowed additional expertise in 14C radio-labeled field studies and expanded coverage and capabilities in a key agricultural region in the USA.
The Major Players in this Market Include
The major companies in the Functional Ingredients Market include Silliker Inc. (U.S.), Intertek Group Plc (U.K.), Eurofins Scientific (Luxembourg), Institut für Produktqualität (Germany) and Romer Labs Inc. (U.S.). In July 2020, DuPont launched a plant-based Danisco Planit portfolio to widen its product options.
The rise in the market for Animal Feed Safety Testing is driven by the rising demand for animal protein, which raises the production of animal feed and the adoption of animal feed safety. Fast growing food industry and increasing popularity of meat products are expected to propel the market forward. Owing to the rising demand for animal food, key market players in the animal feed safety testing industry focus on new investments and launching novel products in the market. For Instance, DSM is working on new technologies with enzymes, phytases and protease, including launching two new solutions, HiPhorius and ProAct 360, as alternative raw materials to improve the utilization of nutrients.
