In the years ahead, the global premix industry is
poised for growth. According to market research firm
Mordor Intelligence, the global animal feed premix
market is set to reach an estimated value of US$27.53
billion by 2022.
Beyond the requirements of animal health and productivity, market forces are influencing premix formulations and manufacturing.
"The premix industry will no longer be relevant with
simple blending facilities and basic formulation support
services," says Adriano Marcon, group director, Cargill
Animal Nutrition. "On the manufacturing side, in order
to ensure the highest level of nutrient accuracy, blending
precision and absence of cross contamination, line and
facility segregation is required in addition to new production technologies like RFID, barcoding and microdosing automation. On the service side, as customers
evolve and build their own nutrition capabilities, service
innovation is required to add distinctive value."
