The development of innovative seaweed-based feed formulations and the adoption of novel manufacturing technologies are key trends in the seaweed-based feed market.

NEWARK, Del, Dec. 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global seaweed-based feed market value is estimated to total US$ 1,251.0 million in 2023. Over the assessment period, demand for seaweed-based feed products is predicted to expand at an impressive CAGR of 16.0%. By 2033, the total market valuation is set to reach US$ 2,385.6 million.

Several factors are expected to drive growth in the seaweed-based feed industry. These include Growing preference for organic and natural feed additives, rising awareness about the benefits of seaweed in animal nutrition, and adoption of sustainable farming practices.

Seaweed-based feed is a rapidly growing market in the animal feed industry that focuses on the production, promotion, and distribution of feed products derived from seaweed. Seaweed-based feed is a desirable alternative for many livestock-rearing methods, particularly aquaculture. This is because it offers a nutrient-rich and sustainable replacement for traditional feed sources.

Seaweed products are rich in essential vitamins, minerals, and bioactive substances. Hence, they can improve the growth, health, and general quality of livestock and farmed aquatic species. They are becoming perfect ingredients for animal feed due to their nutritional qualities.

The growing need for sustainable feed solutions is expected to propel the market for seaweed-based feeds. The production of seaweed needs less freshwater, land, and fertilizers than other feed sources like fishmeal and soybean meal. This makes it a more environmentally friendly option.

Seaweed farms can enhance water quality and trap carbon dioxide, which will promote sustainable aquaculture methods. Thus, shifting preference towards seaweed-based feeds due to their eco-friendly nature will foster market growth through 2033.

For aquatic species and livestock, a seaweed-based diet has various advantages. It has been discovered to strengthen digestion and increase nutrient absorption by encouraging the growth of good gut flora. This can lead to higher feed conversion rates and better animal growth overall.

Bioactive substances such as antioxidants and antibacterial agents found in seaweed-based feed can strengthen a species’ resistance to disease and lessen the need for medications. Thanks to these advantages, demand for seaweed-based feeds is expected to grow robustly through 2033.
