Feed Pellet Machine Market – Introduction
A feed palletizing machine is a biomass molding equipment. It is used to make oil cake, flour maize, etc. into pellets. These machines are generally preferred to make animal feed pellets. The raw materials used are bean pulp, corn, grass, rice husk, straw, wheat stalk, alfalfa, etc., which are inserted into the feeder and are pressed by the roller in the matrix. The materials are heated to high temperature (about 60~80 degree Celsius) owing to high pressure and friction in the matrix. With increased pressure and temperature, the materials are then grinded and forced into molds which then form pellets. The pellets have high strength after cooling.
A flat die pellet machine is mostly used to process materials with large adhesive force for both feed and fuel pellets in small and medium scale production. These machines have numerous advantages such as greater mobility, low noise, and lower energy consumption but have relatively lower productivity over ring die pellet machines. Ring die pellet machines have large capacity output for pellet production with higher density pellets.
Feed Pellet Machine Market –Competitive Landscape
The feed pellet machine market is highly fragmented with local competitors accounting for majority of market share. Many local vendors have entered the industry since the machine requires minimum maintenance and is not complex to manufacture. Customers can opt for local vendors, but there is a huge mark up from the vendor and no guarantee for after sales service. Thus, most customers prefer European or American companies for their manufacturing reliability.

Feed Pellet Machine Market – Dynamics
Growing animal feed industry to drive the demand for feed pellet machines
Animal feed is produced in more than 130 countries. Different animal species are being reared across these countries for various purposes such as milk, meat, protein etc. Feed is considered to be the major component of animal rearing as it adds significant cost to the production. Increasing consumption of animal meat has increased the demand to raise livestock across all regions. The animal feed pellet industry has expanded in response to increasing global population, growing urbanization, and increasing purchasing power. Feed pellet mills are predominantly located in Asia and North America. About 60% of feed production is through pellet production and it is more prevalent in Europe. The feed production will demand for the higher feed pellet production machineries thereby attributing the demand for feed pellet machine market over the forecast timeline.
