Plasma Feed Market Synopsis

Plasma Feed Market Size Was Valued at USD 2799.77 Million in 2023 and is Projected to Reach USD 4762.38 Million by 2032, Growing at a CAGR of 6.08% From 2024-2032.

Plasma feed refers to a specialized type of feed that incorporates plasma proteins or plasma-derived products. This plasma is obtained from animal blood through a process called plasma fractionation. Plasma feed is commonly used as an animal feed additive in the livestock and aquaculture industries for providing nutritional benefits and functional properties. 

  • Plasma feed has been shown to promote improved growth performance, feed intake, and feed conversion efficiency in various livestock species including pigs, poultry, and ruminants when added in animal feed.
  • It also reduces the risks of various animal health challenges, such as diarrhea, respiratory diseases, and enteric infections. The immunoglobulins and other bioactive components of plasma feed improve the immune system response in young animals.
  • Plasma feed is a cost-effective way of improving animal performance and health with reducing the instances of antibiotic usage making it beneficial for livestock farmers and producers.
  • Its high protein content and bioactive components contribute to improved growth performance, feed utilization, gut health, and disease resistance in various fish species. Plasma feed can play can help to increase animal productivity and reduce nutrient wastage.

Plasma Feed Market Trend Analysis

Rising Demand for High-Quality Animal Protein

  • Plasma feed offers several benefits to animal nutrition with its rich protein content and bioactive components. It improves feed palatability, enhances nutrient absorption, supports immune function, and promotes overall animal health and growth which leads to improved feed conversion rates, higher productivity, and better quality end products.
  • With the world population steadily growing, there is a higher demand for protein-rich foods such as meat, milk, eggs, and seafood which drives the need for efficient and sustainable protein sources for livestock and aquaculture production.
  • As incomes rise and lifestyles change, consumers are increasingly seeking nutrient-dense, safe, and high-quality food options, driving the demand for animal-based protein sources that are produced using high-quality feeds.
  • Plasma feed enhances the taste and palatability of animal feed, leading to better acceptance and consumption by animals which can help optimize feed consumption and ensure that animals receive the necessary nutrients for growth and development.


Limited Supply of Raw Materials

  • Plasma feed is primarily derived from animal blood plasma, which serves as a valuable source of nutrients and bioactive components. collection and processing of animal blood plasma are dependent on the availability of suitable raw materials where a limited supply of raw materials can pose challenges in meeting the growing demand for plasma feed.
  • Animal blood plasma has multiple applications and uses beyond plasma feed, including in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical industries which create additional demand for raw materials and may impact the availability of blood plasma for plasma feed production.
  • The collection of animal blood plasma involves procedures such as blood extraction, which raises ethical concerns and regulatory requirements resulting in limitations on the availability and sourcing of the raw materials necessary for plasma feed production.
  • The availability of raw materials for plasma feed production may be subject to seasonal variations due to factors such as changes in animal production cycles, breeding patterns, and market dynamics. These can affect the collection and supply of animal blood plasma.


Demand for Plasma Feed Technology for Food Preservation

  • Plasma feed technology offers potential benefits for food preservation helping in mitigating microbial contamination and reducing spoilage-causing organisms in various food products. This can lead to an extended shelf life for perishable food items by maintaining their quality and freshness for a longer duration.
  • Plasma treatment is effective in reducing the presence of pathogens, such as bacteria and moulds, on food surfaces which can enhance food safety by minimizing the risk of microbial contamination.
  • Plasma feed technology provides an alternative to traditional preservation methods that may involve the use of chemical additives or preservatives eliminating the need for artificial preservatives.
  • The plasma feed technology has the potential to preserve the nutritional quality of food products. Its non-thermal nature helps retain the vitamins, antioxidants, and other beneficial components present in the food, contributing to healthier and more nutritious products. Plasma feed technology can be applied to a wide range of food products, including fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood, and dairy products.

Plasma Feed Market Segment Analysis:

The plasma feed market is segmented on the basis of Source, Application, and Distribution Channel.

By Source, Porcine Segment Is Expected to Dominate the Market During the Forecast Period

There are two segments by source such as bovine, and porcine. Among these, the porcine segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period.

  • Porcine blood plasma is readily available as a raw material for plasma feed production due to the well-establishment of the pork industry with a significant number of pigs. This abundant availability of porcine blood plasma makes it a convenient and accessible source for manufacturing.
  • Porcine blood plasma is rich in essential nutrients, bioactive compounds, and immunoglobulins that provide beneficial characteristics for animal nutrition making porcine plasma a desirable ingredient for formulating high-quality plasma feed.
  • It contains a balanced amino acid profile, vitamins, minerals, and growth factors. It also contains bioactive peptides that can enhance nutrient absorption and utilization, leading to improved growth rates in livestock.
  • Porcine plasma has been widely used in the animal feed industry for a considerable time, with a strong reputation and proven efficacy which has gained acceptance among livestock producers and feed manufacturers as a reliable source of nutrition for animals.
