Pune, India, July 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global insect feed market size is expected to showcase considerable growth in the forthcoming years. This information has been published by Fortune Business Insights™ in its report, titled "Insect Feed Market, 2022-2029." As the population continues to grow, the chances are high that consumption of animal-based food will increase in the foreseeable future. On this note, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nation has predicted that the population of the world will grow around 9 billion by 2050 based on the current growth patterns. In such a situation shifting to insect-based feed from the conventional one seems like a logical step as many domesticated animals already consume insects as a natural part of their diet.

Driving Factor

Rising Adoption of Insect Feed Owing to Natural Diet Patterns of Animals

Insects are a natural part of the diet of many animals such as birds, poultry, fish, and others. As these animals are naturally adapted to consuming insect feed, the introduction of insect proteins in commercial feed is expected to gain momentum. Moreover, insects have bioactive components that improve gut health leading to high demand among animal husbandry companies. Moreover, the growing population, coupled with evolving diet preferences, has increased the demand for animal-based food products. This requires an additional supply of protein-based feed from sustainable sources to keep up with the market demand. The global demand for livestock products is expected to go up to 465 million tons by 2050, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization. These factors are expected to favour the global insect feed market growth in the forthcoming years.
