The Global Blood Meal Market Size is Anticipated to Exceed USD 2.93 Billion by 2033, Growing at a CAGR of 3.24% from 2023 to 2033.


Market Overview

A blood meal is a powder made from dried animal blood that has been collected after the animals have been slaughtered. It contains many nutrients, such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. A blood meal is used as a soil nitrogen amendment in gardening in addition to the cattle industry. Nitrogen provides plants the energy they need to grow and yield fruits and vegetables, it is a vital component needed for plant growth. Thus, increasing the amount of nitrogen in the soil with blood meal will help to improve plant productivity. The smell of blood meal is also unpleasant to certain animals such as squirrels, deer, and moles, therefore it helps to discourage them from destroying the crop. Furthermore, blood meal guarantees that the soil can absorb nutrients in balanced amounts when added to the soil along with other compost materials including paper, straw, and dried leaves. Organic farmers aim to cultivate vegetables and fruits without the use of chemical-based pesticides and fertilizers, and they are looking for natural ways to boost soil nutritional content. A blood meal is an ideal natural fertilizer for organic farmers as it restores the soil's nitrogen levels. Furthermore, blood meal is less expensive as fertilizer than other organic fertilizers on the market.

Driving Factors

The growing awareness of the nutritional benefits of blood meals is a prominent market factor that is fueling the global blood meal market. The importance of nutrition in animal health and productivity is gradually becoming more widely recognized. Both cattle and pet owners are becoming increasingly aware of the significance of feeding animals a balanced, high-quality diet. Blood meal, a protein-rich and nutrient-dense feed ingredient, is gaining popularity for its capacity to suit the nutritional requirements of a variety of animals. The rise of the pet food sector is a significant market factor contributing to the global blood meal market. Worldwide pet ownership is increasing due to shifting demographics and lifestyles. As more people decide to keep pets, their emotional relationship with these animals grows. The humanization of pets has resulted in a greater emphasis on their well-being, including nourishment. Pet owners are increasingly concerned with providing the best diets for their animal companions.


Restraining Factors

Overapplication of blood meal to plants generates acidity in the soil, which burns the plants. As a result, these fertilizers must be applied in proportion to ensure that plants develop healthily and vigorously. In animals, over-ingestion of blood meal causes stomach problems. Since blood meal is available everywhere, its distribution and sale are regulated or completely prohibited in some nations due to the usage of animal blood and the related danger of disease. For example, in Thailand, poultry-derived animal feeds have been linked to an increased risk of avian flu.


Market Segmentation

The blood meal market share is classified into source and application.


  • The poultry blood segment is expected to hold the largest share of the blood meal market during the forecast period.   

Based on the source, the blood meal market is divided into porcine blood, poultry blood, and ruminant blood. Among these, the poultry blood segment is expected to hold the largest share of the blood meal market during the forecast period. Poultry blood is the most preferred blood meal source since it contains more protein, especially lysine, an essential amino acid required for animal growth and development. Poultry blood is easily obtained from slaughterhouses and requires less processing than other sources, such as swine or ruminant blood.


  • The poultry feed segment is expected to dominate the blood meal market during the forecast period.

Based on the application, the blood meal market is divided into poultry feed, porcine feed, ruminant feed, and aquafeed. Among these, the poultry feed segment is expected to dominate the blood meal market during the forecast period. Poultry feed formulas require a consistent and cost-effective supply of protein, and blood meal generated from poultry processing wastes meets these requirements well. Poultry blood is easily available in large amounts, coinciding with the scale of the poultry business and providing a constant and nutritionally valuable element for feed.

North America is anticipated to dominate the global blood meal market over the predicted timeframe. The region's developing cattle and poultry sectors, together with rising demand for high-protein animal feed, are driving the greater use of blood meal. Furthermore, severe regulations promoting sustainable agricultural methods, as well as an emphasis on organic farming, are contributing to blood meal's growing appeal as an organic fertilizer. In North America, the effective use of byproducts from the meat processing industry, particularly in the United States and Canada, increases the availability and cost-effectiveness of blood meal. North America's commitment to sophisticated and sustainable farming practices, combined with a well-established agriculture sector, places it in a leading position in the blood meal market's growth, contributing significantly to the industry's progress.


Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest pace in the blood meal market during the forecast period. The Asia Pacific area, which includes China, India, Australia, and Japan, has emerged as an important market for blood meals. This region offers a significant growth opportunity for industry players, owing to the rapid expansion of the livestock and meat processing industries, as well as the growing use of sustainable agriculture techniques. The Asia Pacific blood meal market is being driven by the region's growing population and the resulting increase in demand for meat products. As the meat business grows, so does the supply of blood meal as a byproduct. Furthermore, the region's focus on increasing agricultural output and raising knowledge of the benefits of organic fertilizers have spurred demand for blood meal as a nutrient-rich soil amendment.
