Global Feed Fats and Proteins Market
Proteins are the large biomolecules consisting of amino acid chains. Fat is an ester of alcohol glycerol and three fatty acid chains. Feed fats and proteins help to maintain the nutritional level of the feed. Feed fats and proteins produce higher nutritional values with lesser feed amount and lead to the production of the high amount of meat, dairy, and other livestock products. Feed fats and proteins are made up of either animal or plant sources. Feed fats and proteins are mixed with the feed in very fewer quantities which also help to maintain the health of the livestock.
The global feed fats and proteins market are growing at a significant CAGR due to increase in the demand for healthy meat and dairy products. Industrialization of animal husbandry, a rise in the animal adoption rate, an increase in the income from farm animals expected to fuel the feed fats and proteins market over the forecast period. Furthermore, increase in the global population preferring for milk and milk products, a rise in the awareness about the feed fats and proteins among farmers and animal breeders, and lack of nutritional feed for animals expected to boost the feed fats and proteins market over the forecast period. However, high cost for the feed fats and proteins, an outbreak of livestock diseases, and environmental factors related to the fats and proteins might hamper the growth of feed fats and proteins market over the forecast period.
