Asia Pacific is one of the largest producers of livestock and animal-based products in the world, with China being a major producer. Growing production, as well as the consumption of livestock and livestock-based products in this region, has enabled livestock producers to utilize compound feed.

Apart from this, the increasing feed production and huge potential for the aquaculture segment have boosted the scope of compound feed in the region.
