Animal Feed Trace Minerals Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Animal Feed Trace Minerals Market according to our research experts:

Increasing Worldwide Meat and Fish Consumption is driving the Market

The worldwide economic downturn had a negligible impact on the global meat market, which has maintained its positive outlook. The highest growth of meat consumption is expected from the Asia-Pacific and South American regions because of changing diet patterns, urbanization, population, and economic growth. For example, the Chinese demand for meat continues to surpass the domestic supply, according to Agriculture and Agri-food Canada. Fishes are low in fats, cholesterol, and carbohydrates and are very high in protein. They also provide essential vitamins and amino acids. These factors lead to an increased global demand which is increasing rapidly as more and more people are becoming aware of the health benefits of fish consumption. Globally increasing population trends are also supporting the growth of the world meat and seafood market. Increasing life expectancy and limited availability of land and water resources for animal feed production, is promoting the use of trace elements in animal feed which is driving the market, worldwide.
