The Indian feed industry is about 35 years old. The quality standards of Indian feeds are high and up to international levels. Raw materials for feed are adequately available in India. The feed industry has modern computerized plants and the latest equipment for analytical procedures and least-cost ration formulation, and it employs the latest manufacturing technology. The poultry industry is now growing in importance. Today, the Indian feed industry is worth approximately Rs 45 billion, that is about US$1 billion.

Compared with the rest of the livestock sector, the poultry industry in India is more scientific, better organized and continuously progressing towards modernization. Breeding and feeding management has improved through education, training, competition, expansion and survival instincts. India is the world's fifth largest egg producer, with a total production of 40 billion eggs per year. The Indian poultry feed industry, dependent on the sound growth of poultry has a great untapped potential, with southern part of India holding the maximum share of poultry production and consumption.

As the poultry industry has been expanding beyond the boundaries of these states, there is ample opportunity for standalone feed players. Poultry feed in India consists of grains like maize, wheat, sorghum, bajra, ragi and broken rice, grain by-products like rice polish, de-oiled rice bran and maize gluten meal; oilseed meals from soybeans, mustard, groundnut and sunflower; animal protein sources like fish meal, whole fish, meat and bone meal, poultry-by-product meal; vitamins, minerals and various feed additives.

The animal feed and fodder industry is another ago-based industry, which helps the growth of dairy industry also. Acute shortage of feed and fodder, one of the weaknesses of Indian dairy industry. Keeping in view the growth rate of population, income, demand for food, it is estimated that India would need around 215 million tons of food grains. One of the trends to be followed is that productivity in livestock sector continues to be guided by population, rather than increase in productivity levels per unit of production. Researches pertaining to intensive feeding, breeding and management need to be strengthened. India has one of the largest population of domestic animals that provide diverse products such as milk, meat, wool, eggs and skins.

The cattle feed business is growing by a CAGR of more than 30% as milk producers have started replacing traditional feed with more nutritional DOC having realized the tangible benefits in terms of yield improvements. Also, there is an increasing trend in diversion of soya-bean meal for human based consumption leading to bigger market share of cottonseed meals for cattle feed in India. State and Central Govt. are concentrating on incremental increase of cattle’s in the state / country. These cattle’s provide self-employment to the beneficiary by generating sufficient income through their produce or flash.

In India the animal feed industry is of recent origin, the first animal food plant having been established in 1960. There are today as many as 14 plants in the organized sector, besides many small feed compounders, which operate in large cities. The 14 organized units have modern or semi modern equipment for manufacturing compound feeds. All of them have excellent facilities for quality control and are well equipped for chemical analysis of raw materials and the finished products. The installed capacity for all types of feeds that can be produced in the units under organized sector in India is estimated in the neighbourhood of 630000 metric tonnes a year. Taking into account the expansion plans of the organized sector, it is anticipated that the capacity of this industry in India is likely to increase rapidly.
