The Farm Animal Feed Market | France

The manufacture of farm animal feed is located at the interface of agricultural production, the agri-food industry and livestock. 52% of animal feed in France comes from cereals and 79% of raw materials come from France. The sector is therefore vulnerable for its supplies (e.g. the surge in wheat prices in 2010) as for its outlets (e.g. the difficulties of livestock sectors, particularly in the pig sector). Studies show that the livestock feed market has grown by 14% since 2011 and by 1.5% between 2015 and 2016, globally. The market today is worth 995.5 million tons produced. The leading countries are China, the United States, Brazil, Mexico, India, Spain, Russia, Germany, Japan, and France. Europe alone grew by 22% in 2015, driven from the top towards Spain (+8%), and France posted a decline. The poultry feed sector accounts for 44% of world production.   

Animal feed production varies greatly from one year to the next and according to the species. In 2013, France produced nearly 21.2 million tonnes of compound feed for farm animals (all species combined). 

The animal nutrition industry has undergone profound restructuring in recent years. Excess production capacities on a structurally declining market cause frequent reorganisations and alliances between the players in the sector. In order to better face the difficulties of the trade, manufacturers are more and more often joining a cooperative group. The most significant companies on the market are Sanders, Le Gouessant, Nutrea, Denkavit and Sud-Ouest Aliment.  

Moreover, due to the subject of animal welfare, the issues of the quality of food given to farm animals are at the heart of debates, leading to changes in the market.
