The Poultry Feed Market includes feed used for layers, broilers, turkeys, ducks and others. Healthy poultry requires sufficient quantity of proteins and carbohydrates along with the necessary vitamins and dietary minerals. These nutrients are added as feed additives. Poultry feed ingredients mainly comprise carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Carbohydrates are the major source of energy and constitute the largest component of poultry diets, followed by plant proteins and animal protein sources. Feed additives are included in poultry feed to improve the efficiency of bird's growth, their laying capacity, prevent diseases, and improve feed utilisation. Additives such as flavour enhancers, artificial and nutritive sweeteners, colours, and others are also added to the poultry feed to enhance quality. The growth in the poultry meat and egg industry and increasing demand for animal protein are the drivers pushing the market of poultry feed.
