Animal Feed Yeast Market worth over USD 5 Billion by 2035

  • Text Size:

New York – April 21, 2023: Research Nester’s recent market research report on Animal Feed Yeast Market: Global Demand Analysis & Opportunity Outlook 2035” delivers a detailed competitor analysis and a detailed overview in terms of market segmentation by type, application, and by region.

Rise in Infectious Livestock Disease to Boost the Growth of Animal Feed Yeast Market

The animal feed yeast market is expected to grow due to an increase in cattle disease infections. All across the world, there are several infectious diseases that affect animals. As a result of this, it is anticipated that production of milk, meat, or any other agricultural activity would be constrained. Furthermore, human beings suffer from the spread of infectious diseases. For instance, neglected zoonotic illnesses claim the lives of almost two million people annually, primarily in low- and middle-income nations. Therefore, farmers and ranchers are looking for natural technology and chemicals to improve animal health and performance. Additionally, there is increasing pressure to accomplish these goals with little to no use of antibiotics. As a result, it is predicted that the demand for yeast would increase.

Additionally, it is anticipated that expanding government initiatives and their supportive policies to encourage higher consumption of yeast in animal feed would accelerate the growth of the animal feed yeast market. Antibiotics were used more frequently when feeding livestock, including poultry processing, in order to boost animal output and enhance the efficacy of feed. However, giving animals antibiotics has certain negative effects. Concerns have been expressed concerning potential negative effects from the emergence of resistant strains of organisms in hosts, which could jeopardize both animal and human health, as a result of the widespread use of low-level antibiotics in feeds. It wasn't long after microbes were initially introduced before antibiotic resistance was found in them. Antibiotic-treated animals may grow and harbor resistant bacteria in their intestines. As a result, many nations have outlawed the use of antibiotics, shifting the focus to yeast feeding.


Some of the major growth factors and challenges that are associated with the growth of the global animal feed yeast are:

Growth Drivers:

  • Rising Ownership of Cattle
  • Growth in Fish Farming



The availability of feed alternatives is one of the key factors limiting the expansion of the yeast industry for animal feed applications. Product penetration is being hampered by the extensive usage of alternative feed sources, such as insects, soybeans, and others, across many different industrial verticals. Moreover, there is a lack of awareness among farmers. Hence, the adoption of yeast is estimated to restrain, further hindering the animal feed yeast market growth.

By application, the market for animal feed yeast is segmented into swine, cattle, poultry, aquatic animals, and pet animals. By the end of 2035, it is predicted that the segment for aquatic creatures would provide the most revenue. The segment's expansion could be ascribed to people's rising seafood consumption. A significant source of animal protein for more than 2 billion people globally is wild-caught and farmed seafood. However, the utilization of fishmeal as a source of protein and worries about the sustainability of protein have necessitated the search for new sustainable components for use in aquafeeds. Yeasts have been proposed as sustainable components, particularly given their capacity to transform non-food lignocellulosic material into significant protein supplies. Additionally, it is claimed that a yeast inclusion level of 14% enhances growing performance without affecting the quality of the finished product. Therefore, different yeast species are used as supplemental feed in aquaculture to boost growth efficiency, fish disease resistance, water quality, and the richness of microbial communities.

By region, the Asia Pacific animal feed yeast market is projected to have the largest share by the end of 2035, supported by a rising chicken business in this area as well as a growing fish farming industry. Asia is the world's top producer of aquaculture, with 88.7% of global production (82 million tons, excluding 32 million tons of aquatic plants). Aquaculture also provides jobs for 20.5 million people in the primary sector, most of whom are employed in small firms in Asia. As a result, fish consumption is increasing in Asia and the Pacific. Additionally, the increasing consumption could be ascribed to the region's expanding urban population as well as the people's rising standard of living. Along with the expanding meat packing companies in this region, this factor is also predicted to increase poultry output, which is further anticipated to increase market expansion in the region.

This report also provides the existing competitive scenario of some of the key players of the global animal feed yeast market which includes company profiling of Associated British Foods PLC., Archer Daniels Midland, Alltech Inc., Cargill, Incorporated, Angel Yeast Co. Ltd., Chr. Hansen, Lesaffre, Nutreco N.V., Diamond V, Lallemand, Inc., and others.
