[Report Description]

The global alfalfa hay market is projected to register a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period (2021-2026). The market was negatively impacted by Covid-19 in 2020. Due to covid-19, there are supply chain disruptions in the market. The uncertainty has been on all sectors along the supply chain including manufacturers, processors, transportation, and consumers. North America is projected to be the largest market for alfalfa hay. China, UAE, and Saudi Arabia are major importers of alfalfa hay from the United States. The United States and Spain are major exporters of alfalfa hay, globally. The use of alfalfa hay has become critical to poultry feed, followed by animal feed in recent years, due to its importance for crude protein content. Dependence on alfalfa hay for animal feed may continue to drive the alfalfa hay market, globally, over the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Dairy and Meat Products

Livestock is a major factor responsible for the growth of the alfalfa hay market. The annual growth of meat production and milk production in the developing countries is projected to be 2.4% and 2.5%, respectively, till 2030. This is expected to increase the share of the developing countries in the world meat production to 66.0%, which will be 247.0 million metric ton, and in milk production to 55.0%, which will be 484.0 million metric ton. Furthermore, there has been immense pressure on the livestock sector to meet the increasing demand for high-value animal protein. The demand for alfalfa hay is increasing significantly in China and is driven due to changing production practices in the Chinese dairy industry. This is essentially due to the increasing number of cows raised by modern dairy farmers who prefer using imported hay and commercial feeds. Furthermore, the Chinese government is focusing on boosting the domestic production of alfalfa hay, in order to meet its high demand. The dairy sector is essentially boosting the demand for alfalfa hay in China. The country has about 15 million cows in the dairy industry, among which, 1.5 million are high producers (nine-ton annual milk yield).

North America to Dominate the Global Market

Some of the alfalfa hay-producing states in the United States, as of 2019, are California with 7,060 thousand metric ton, Idaho with 5,111 thousand metric ton, and Minnesota with 2,966 thousand metric ton. These account for nearly 27.0% of the alfalfa hay production in the country. China, Japan, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates are the top export destinations to the United States, and China is expected to remain as the key market for the US alfalfa hay exports in the near future and almost half of the exports of alfalfa hay is to China. The domestic production of alfalfa hay in Saudi Arabia decreased. As the country needs to satisfy its dairy market demand for alfalfa hay, it mainly relies on imports and is also expected to remain as one of the key buyers from the US alfalfa hay market.

Competitive Landscape

Alfalfa hay supply is concentrated in the United States and Spain, and consumption is concentrated in China, Japan, United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia.
