DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Netherlands Animal Feed Market – Forecasts from 2022 to 2027” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
The rise of the Netherlands animal feed market is majorly due to rapid urbanization and rising demand for meat and other end-products.
The Netherlands has one of Europe’s fastest-growing animal feed sectors, owing to the increasing demand for raw and processed meat, as well as increased health awareness. According to Wageningen University & Research, the average person in the Netherlands consumes 76 kg of meat per year. Approximately half of this is consumed as meat and animal products. Between 2010 and 2015, meat consumption decreased slightly.
Rapid urbanization is also expected to drive market growth in the country. According to World Bank data, 92.24 percent of the total population of the Netherlands lived in cities in 2020.
Expanding livestock coupled with investment and expansion strategies by key players will further propel market growth.
Disease outbreaks in animals are a significant reason driving the use of animal feed, which improves animal health and aids in the proper regulation of the food chain. High growth in the animal feed market is assisted by key companies’ expansion and investment strategies, which also aid in the enhancement of product portfolios and reaching out to new target areas.
In addition, the expanding livestock population is predicted to boost market growth potential in the upcoming years. The Netherlands exports the most meat in Europe. With over 100 million cattle, poultry, and pigs, it has one of Europe’s major livestock sectors. In 2018, the country had an average of 14 goats, 93 cattle, 298 pigs, and 2372 poultry per km.
The number of goats climbed by 12%, while the number of sheep remained relatively unchanged. These are preliminary numbers derived from Statistics Netherlands’ 2018 Agricultural Census (CBS). Similarly, the average number of hens per hatchery has doubled in 13 years, while the cow population has increased by half to 1.5 million.
The country’s pig population has remained relatively constant over the last 13 years, at 12 million, but the average number of pigs per farm has nearly doubled to 2,200. The largest density is found in the country’s southeast, where a district known as De Peel has at least 20 million chickens.
Moreover, the amount of milk produced by an average market cow has increased dramatically over time, from 6,000 liters per year 35 years ago to 9,000 liters per year in 2020, according to the data compiled by the USDA authors. Changing the diets of cows allowed for a significant increase in milk production. Farmers in the Netherlands have started feeding their livestock more feed concentrate in recent years.
The growing concern regarding nitrogen emissions and the plans by the government can act as restraints for the Netherlands animal feed market.
The Netherlands is developing ideas to reduce cattle numbers by 30% by compelling farmers to sell their emission rights and even their land to the state, which is the most radical of their kind in Europe.
The Dutch government launched a €25 billion plan on December 15, 2021, to drastically cut the number of animals in the country as it battles an overabundance of animal manure. The concern about animals stems from the fact that they produce manure, which, when mixed with urine, produces ammonia, a nitrogen compound.
