Animal husbandry is one of those sectors of the industry that were on a roll until the Covid-19 pandemic struck them hard, stunting their growth by a large extent. With increasing disposable income and changing food habits among the populace, meat consumption was becoming more popular with every passing day. As a result new players were venturing into this field, looking to tap into the market potential. The Indian animal husbandry market was valued at Rs 900 billion in 2019 as per IMARC Group. The group predicts the market to grow moderately till 2025.
With the globalization of agriculture, animal husbandry has evolved into a globally connected event wherein the animal feed and products are transported from one corner of the world to the other. The places of production and consumption have become entwined in such a way that it is difficult to fathom where a produce is going to be consumed.
