The global Plasma Feed Market Share has been segmented by source and application.
Based on source, the global plasma feed market has been segmented into bovine, porcine, and others. The porcine segment accounted for the largest revenue share of the market and is estimated to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period. The growth of the segment can be attributed to several health benefits offered by the porcine plasma feed. The large-scale slaughter of pigs for their meat helps in the collection of their blood in large volumes, which, in turn, drives the growth of the segment.
By application, the global plasma feed market report has been divided into pet food, aquafeed, swine feed, and others. The pet food segment is projected to dominate the market during the review period, as plasma feed efficiently fulfills the requirement of protein in pets. Plasma feed is a natural, sustainable, and efficient source of nutrition for pets. However, the aquafeed segment is projected to expand at the highest growth rate during the forecast period owing to the increasing demand for aquafeed and the expansion of the aquaculture industry.
