African sub-continent is highly under developed and due to poor economy, demand for meat and processed meat products is comparitively low. Africa silage additives market had a revenue of $15.7 million in 2014 and is expected to touch $18.9 million by 2020 with an estimated CAGR of 2.8%, very slow growth determines the untapped nature of the market in the region.
South Africa is an emerging nation with people of higher western influence in both lifestyles and culinray. This is directly reflected in the increased demand for quality meat in the region during the past 5 years. In order to catch up with the demand, a growth in industrial production of livestock was witnessed in the region.
New product innovations and increasing cost of commercial forage encouraged the cultivars to employ economically feasible silage additives to retain the quality and nutrition of the animal feed in South Africa.
Silage inoculants are various anaerobic bacteria that help to manipulate and enhance fermentation of silage. Fermentation is an important part that decides the nutrient content and availability of silage for animal consumption. All these factors have led the demand for silage inoculants to grow at steady rate.
