Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Rising spending on pets and growing global demand for meat – which has boosted global livestock production and subsequently, demand for stockfeed – have contributed to the industry's growth over the period. Industry revenue is projected to post annualised growth of 3.3% over the five years through 2015-16, to reach $4.1 billion.
