The microbial protein for feed market size is expected to grow from US$ 141,095.88 thousand in 2022 to US$ 308,055.17 thousand by 2028; it is estimated to register a CAGR of 13.9% from 2022 to 2028.

Microbial protein is one of the significant sources of crude protein. There are many nutritional benefits of including microbial protein in animal feed. Microbial protein contains more than 70% crude protein, whereas soymeal contains 40–50% crude protein, and fish meal contains 60–65% crude protein. Moreover, it has an ideal amino acid profile, including higher valine, tryptophan, isoleucine, and leucine compared to fish meals. Microbial protein is one of the excellent alternatives to conventional sources of proteins such as soybean and fish meal. It is produced using cost-effective substrates such as industrial gases (carbon dioxide, methane, and natural gas), wastewater, and poultry waste (feathers) fermented in a reactor using bacteria, yeast, fungi, or microalgae. Thus, various nutritional benefits of adding microbial protein to livestock diets and rising sustainability concerns are driving the microbial protein for feed market growth.

In 2021, Europe held the largest share of the global microbial protein for feed market. According to the European Feed Manufacturers’ Federation (FEFAC), pig feed production increased by 2.9% in 2020, despite the continued spread of African Swine Fever (ASF) in the region and its impact on pig farming. Several European countries increased their exports to China, benefiting from Germany’s export ban, which led to a surge in pig feed production in 2020. With the rising levels of animal feed production, manufacturers are looking for sustainable feed additives, as animal-sourced and plant-sourced feed additives are not perceived as environment-friendly nowadays. Imported feed materials, such as soy, threaten natural resources and biodiversity. Thus, the demand for microbial protein is increasing among animal feed manufacturers.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on microbial protein for feed market

The feed industry faced crucial challenges such as a shortage of raw materials and laborers, a surge in raw material prices, and disruptions in distribution networks due to lockdowns, travel bans, trade limitations, manufacturing unit shutdowns, and other government-levied restrictions across the globe. This hampered the manufacturing activities of various companies in the animal feed industry, subsequently resulting in increased prices of feed ingredients. In European Union, about two-thirds of member states pointed out the spike in feed prices in the livestock industry during the pandemic. Moreover, during the peak of the pandemic, China closed livestock and poultry trading and slaughter markets in most of the regions. Such barriers in the livestock industry hampered the demand for feed ingredients which had a negative impact on the demand for microbial protein for feed during the pandemic.

In 2021, various economies resumed operations as their governments announced relaxations in the previously imposed restrictions, which boosted the global marketplace. Further, manufacturers were permitted to operate at full capacities, which helped them overcome the demand and supply gap and other repercussions.

Government and Private Sector Investments to Have Positive Impact on Microbial Protein for Feed Market Growth

Climate change and overexploitation of natural resources such as land and water are the leading sustainability concerns in livestock and animal feed industries. As a result, governments of various countries across the globe are funding companies that manufacture animal feed and ingredients using sustainable practices to reduce their overall carbon footprint and support the circular economy growth. Governments and private sector investors are also supporting companies that make animal feed protein from microorganisms as it is one of the most sustainable sources of protein for animal nutrition. For instance, in February 2022, Arbiom—a French American manufacturer of high-quality proteins for animal feed and food applications by processing agricultural waste and wood residues—received an investment of US$ 13.50 million from the France Relance investment program. After receiving the investment, the company announced the construction of its first commercial production plant in France. Thus, the rising government and private sector investment in the microbial protein for feed market is expected to positively impact the market growth over the forecast period.

Source Insights

Based on source, the global microbial protein for feed market is segmented into bacteria, yeast, and others. The bacteria segment held the largest share of the global microbial protein for feed market in 2021 and is expected to register the highest CAGR from 2022 to 2028. Bacteria exhibit the highest growth rates compared to yeast and other microorganisms. Moreover, the amount of protein produced using bacterial culture is the largest. Furthermore, it has more than 70% crude protein and has a favorable essential amino acid profile. According to various studies, 1,000 kg bacteria produce a larger quality of proteins than soybeans and beef cattle. Thus, bacteria are one of the cost-effective and fastest sources of protein for animal feed. All these factors are driving the market for the segment.

The key players operating in the global microbial protein for feed market include Calysta, Inc.; Avecom; Arbiom; KnipBio; ICC; and Alltech. Market players are focusing on providing high-quality products to fulfill customer demand.
