The Vietnam feed base mix market was valued at USD 1.49 billion in 2017, and is expected to register a CAGR of 4.69%, during the forecast period.
Self-made feed is more common in Vietnam, since the price of feed ingredients is declining, while the price of industrial feed is stable. To reduce the production cost, Vietnamese farmers buy feed ingredients and mix them based on their experience. However, the exact ratio is known to very less number of farmers. Smallholders utilize a variety of feedstuffs, despite limited knowledge.
Improvement in the Meat Export Sector Driving the Market
The export market for meat in Vietnam is growing, owing to the free trade agreement between Vietnam and EU. Therefore, pressure on improving the domestic production of livestock and meat is rising, which is expected to increase the domestic demand for animal feed, thereby boosting the demand for feed base mix. The export meat market had grown from 2013 to 2016, at an average rate of USD 25,000 thousand, which is expected to increase the demand for animal feed.
Many commercial companies in Vietnam are moving toward international standards of meat production for exports and are adhering to the US standard, in order to provide a well-balanced nutritional feed to the animals in their farms, which means that they are looking for a well-balanced diet containing protein in the form of amino acid and carbohydrates, along with other nutrition.
Poultry Accounts for a Major Segment in the Market
There is a high requirement for carbohydrate-based feed for poultry in Vietnam, and the country depends on imports for high-protein sources, due to the demand-supply gap. Amino acids like lysine, methionine, threonine, and tryptophan are imperative in the livestock production. Lysine is a major amino acid required for livestock production, and is predominantly used for poultry applications in the country.
The birds in a non-intensive farming system are fed the by-products of local agricultural crops, such as corn, wheat, dry cassava, dry potato, broken rice, and rice bran. For a non-intensive poultry farmer, this procedure is very expensive, owing to the rising prices of fish powder and soybean seed cake. As a result, many farmers mix them at a lower rate, thereby compromising on the feed efficiency. Moreover, more than half of the farmers rely on the home-made feed that lacks nutritional balance. It also gets contaminated with fungus, toxicants, and poisons, due to the poor maintenance of raw materials and animal feed.
