Global Blood Meal Market Outlook
The continuous increase in population has led to a continuous increase in demand for food and beverage products. There is thus increase in demand for the various plant as well as animal-based products. The feed sector, as well as the fertilizer sector, thus have become important and hence there is an increasing demand for feed additives as well as fertilizers. A large number of animals are slaughtered every day and thus a huge amount of blood is obtained as a waste product. However, a very little part of that blood is utilized and the rest is wasted. Blood meal is the dry powder form of blood. Blood meal is considered as one of the rich sources of protein as well as nitrogen. Blood meal is thus used as the supplement in animal feed products as well as a fertilizer. Thus with the increasing demand for sustainable products like blood meal by animal feed as well as crop protection sector the global blood meal market is expected to increase over the forecast period.
Global Blood Meal Market Dynamics
The growing demand for protein-rich feed additives is expected to increase the demand for products like blood meal. Growing population, increasing demand for animal-based products, as well as growing demand for natural and organic food products are some of the prime factors driving the global blood meal market. Blood is considered as liquid protein owing to its high concentration of protein and is rich in amino acids like lysine, and thus has an advantage over plant-based protein which has low lysine content. Blood meal is one of the highest non-synthetic sources of nitrogen and hence is used as a natural fertilizer. Blood meal being derived from animals, a natural source of high-quality protein as well as other nutrients is expected to gain traction owing to increasing demand for natural feed ingredients. The lack of awareness and unwillingness to accept a feed ingredient derived from blood are some of the factors hindering the growth of the blood meal market. However, with the increasing demand for protein-rich animal feed, demand for natural fertilizer with high nitrogen concentration, the demand for blood meal is expected to increase positively both in terms of volume and value over the forecast period.
