Further, high conversion ratio offered by sunflower meal as well as economic feasibility are also contributing to the market growth.  High nutritional content with respect to protein and fiber, alongside product usage as feed ingredient are propelling the global sunflower meal industry growth.  

However, restriction on consumption of non-hulled sunflower meal in adult ruminant diets may hamper the market growth in coming years. Despite that, shifting consumer preference towards oilseed meals for livestock due to cost viability in major livestock and feed producing regions is expected to create opportunities for global sunflower meal market partakers over the forecast period.

In terms of source, the industry is bifurcated into whole sunflower seeds, and decorticated sunflower seeds. Considering the end use spectrum, global sunflower meal market is divided into poultry, ruminants, and swine.  With respect to form, the market is classified into ground up powder, pellets, and cakes.
