  • Poultry is the fastest growing sector, as the developed world increases consumption in favour of other proteins due to taste preferences and perceived health considerations. 
  • Growth in dairy in Indian is expected to be rapid, as economic development and cultural/religious considerations are expected to combine to increase dairy consumption significantly.
  • Per capita beef consumption in the developed world has been dropping for the past 20 years due largely to health considerations.

Cattle raising and beef production provides income to farmers and ranchers around the world, along with significant employment and revenue to food manufacturers and ancillary industries.


The dairy market comprises a range of products from traditional items such as fluid milk, butter, and cheeses to the ingredient market featuring powdered and processed products that are added to any number of food items.


Egg production requires feed inputs from cultivated crops as part of the wider agribusiness commodities market, and its output is the eggs from laying hens, also known as layers, as well as those layers that are slaughtered.


Due to the wide diet consumable by hogs, pork production can happen in many different growing zones around the world, without significant roaming requirements for the animals.


Outside of aquaculture, poultry is the most efficient converter of feed to food for humans. Vertical integration facilitates rapid expansion or contraction production phases to accommodate external market variables.
