This expansion reflects a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.22% throughout the forecast period spanning from 2023 to 2032. The market's growth is driven by escalating concerns related to animal health and welfare, the emphasis on feed efficiency, advancements in feed formulation technology, the continual expansion of the livestock and poultry sectors, and heightened investments in animal agriculture. These factors align with the growing demand for animal protein, contributing significantly to the enhanced growth of the market.

With the growing consumer awareness regarding livestock health, growing concerns about animal nutrition and their healthy eating habits, the demand for starter feed has increased to a greater extent.
