The global animal feed additives market is estimated to garner $32.1 billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 5.8% over the forecast period 2015 - 2021. Feed additives are employed in animal nutrition to enhance the quality and properties of animal feed to boost features such as overall gut health/digestive performance, palatability preservation, and others. They have gained importance globally, as they improve the overall health of the animal, in turn improving the quality and quantity of meat produced from them. For example, poultry feed additives are used to improve the bird’s egg-laying capacity, feed utilization, and disease prevention. Similarly, a swine diet includes various natural and synthetic additives, such as acidifiers, high dietary levels of copper and zinc, and phytase to boost the performance and profitability of this feed.
Increasing global meat consumption, industrialization of meat products, and growing awareness of the quality of dairy and meat products consumed are the major factors driving the feed additives’ market growth. Increasing raw material costs are likely to restrict the market growth, as majority of additives, such as feed acids, antioxidants and vitamins, are extracted from natural sources encompassing seeds, tree barks, leaves, etc.
The world animal feed additives market is segmented based on type, livestock, and geography. The type segment is further bifurcated into amino acids, feed enzymes, vitamins, minerals, feed acidifiers, antioxidants, antibiotics and binders. The demand for amino acids is increasing owing to its extensive application in feed additives. Animals/livestock require continuous supply of protein in their diet; hence, amino acids are considered as an essential component in the animal feed supplements.
Based on livestock, the market is segmented into swine, poultry, cattle, aquatic animals, and others. In 2014, the poultry segment emerged as a leading livestock segment for the consumption of feed additives, followed by swine and cattle, because of the rise in demand for poultry meat, consumer taste preferences, and increase in disposable incomes in developing economies, mainly in China and India. Geographically, the world animal feed additives market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA (Latin America, Middle East & Africa). The Asia-Pacific region is likely to provide lucrative growth opportunities until 2021, owing to considerable increase in feed production and rising awareness among the consumers regarding the quality of meat, and dairy and related products in China and India.
