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 micro-dosing automation. On the service side, as customers evolve and build their own
nutrition capabilities, service innovation is required to
add distinctive value."
