The animal and pet food market’s growth is aided by the stable economic growth forecasted in many developed and developing countries. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the global GDP reached 3.3% in 2020 and 3.4% in 2021, according to the IMF. Recovering commodity prices, after a significant decline in the historical period, are further expected to aid the market’s growth.

The outbreak of COVID-19 disease (COVID-19) has acted as a massive restraint on the animal food manufacturing market in 2020 as supply chains were disrupted due to trade restrictions and consumption declined due to lockdowns imposed by governments globally.COVID-19 is an infectious disease with flu-like symptoms including fever, cough, and difficulty breathing.

The virus was first identified in 2019 in Wuhan, Hubei province of the People’s Republic of China, and has spread globally, including Western Europe, North America, and Asia.Food and beverage manufacturers depend on the supply of raw materials from domestic and international suppliers.

As many governments restricted the movement of goods across countries and locally, manufacturers had to halt production due to a lack of raw materials.Also, restrictions on the trade of non-essential goods and fear of contamination through manufacturing facilities contributed to the decline.

The outbreak had a negative impact on businesses throughout 2020 and into 2021. However, it is expected that the animal food manufacturing market will recover from the shock over the forecast period as it is a "black swan" event and not related to ongoing or fundamental weaknesses in the market or the global economy.

Growing awareness among cattle farmers and pet owners about the advantages of probiotics for animal health is leading to the increased use of probiotics in animal feed for farm animals like cattle, horses, ruminants, and poultry.The increasing advancements in molecular biology and gene sequencing are allowing researchers to dig deep to find new probiotic applications for animals, in feed, and consumer packaged health products.

The significant rise in the adoption of probiotics in animal feed for farm animals has shown beneficial results in terms of animal performance, digestion, and the immune system.
