Edible insects and insect-based products are enriched with a high amount of nutritional protein. This makes them an ideal alternative to conventional protein sources in animal nutrition, and are thus gaining traction. As a dry product, edible insects contain 50% to 80% of protein, which is essential for animal nutrition. Edible insects also contain amino acids, which are highly digestible for animals. Some insects contain lauric acid, antimicrobial peptides, and chitin, which have immune-boosting properties. On the back of the high nutritional content of insects, and rising adoption as substitute protein sources, the edible insects for animal feed market is anticipated to witness impressive growth through 2030.

Anticipated COVID-19 Impact on Edible Insects for Animal Feed Market

With the virus spreading across the world, down-chain suppliers across key sectors are facing problems in meeting the demand. This is more evident at the current stage with ingredients in limited storage. Further increase in the closure of factories and ports will strain the supplies to a greater extent. With the ban on international travel and transport, edible insects for animal feed producers will be dependent on local producers and suppliers for the sourcing of raw material.

It is anticipated that the production clusters where edible insects for animal feed is reared will remain less impacted by the global pandemic of COVID-19. Feed processing companies in major countries, such as the U.S., where the demand for edible insects for animal feed is high, may suffer from the shortage of edible insects in the second quarter of 2020, as major suppliers are based in the European region.

A recovery is expected by end of the third quarter, or the initial phase of the fourth quarter of 2020. The impact will be seen across various end-use such as poultry feed, aqua feed, and swine feed. The extent of impact of CoVid-19 on demand and consumption is uncertain at the present stage. Today, analysis of the market impact of COVID-19 is a moving target, but all signs point to an ongoing negative global economic outlook through the first half of the year. Disruptions in the supply chain is the immediate threat to feed industry. As China’s feed industry saw significant recovery post COVID, similarly, other economies will see a gear-up in business with less impact.

Feed manufacturers are making strategic moves in order to be prepared for the worst. Companies are looking for alternative raw material sources. They will look out to expand their production bases across key geographies or demand clusters. Business expansion is pretentious, as the set-up cost is quite negligible or less capital intensive.
