China Swine Artificial Insemination market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The market was significantly impacted by the African swine fever, the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the macroeconomic challenges of 2022. A major impact of the African Swine Fever was observed in 2018-19 wherein there was a notable decline in sow herds in key markets such as China. Customers in the value chain also faced issues such as high grain, fuel, and fertilizer prices; the continued adverse impact of COVID-19 on operations, supply chain hurdles, and inflationary pressures on input costs.

Although certain challenges persist during 2023, the market is expected to grow steadily in key countries. The outbreak of diseases like African Swine fever, and other challenges have pushed market leaders to innovate swine production. These challenges coupled with the growing reality of market consolidation continue to push for higher productivity and output. For example, Genus Plc, a leading market player, expanded its pig production post the shortfall in pork, with technified pig production, which was also supported by the legislative drive to professionalize the sector.

Market players have begun to leverage the growing opportunities in the market. For example, at the end of 2022, Hendrix Genetics established a business unit in China. The company started by establishing nuclear and pedigree farms for popular species in the country, with an initial focus on swine and poultry. Furthermore, companies such as Semen Cardona S.L. are exploring opportunities in emerging markets such as the Philippines, Mexico, Colombia, etc. The company distributed over 0.7 million doses of semen in 2022, in Mexico. Similar initiatives by key players in the market are estimated to drive market growth in the coming years.

The demand in the swine artificial insemination market has been increasing over the years due to its numerous benefits such as the ability to improve genetics, reduce disease transmission, and increase productivity. Moreover, artificial insemination can be used to improve the overall productivity and profitability of pig farming. By using high-quality semen from genetically superior boars, pig farmers can produce piglets that have better growth rates, increased meat yield, and improved feed conversion ratios. This ultimately leads to higher profits for pig farmers. Growing awareness of the benefits of artificially inseminating pigs is thus expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period.
