Key Market Trends

Ban on Antibiotics is Driving the Market

The demand for animal feed probiotics is also likely to increase on account of prevailing controversies around the use of antibiotics in animal feed. The growing requirement for safe and nutrition-rich animal feed has influenced manufacturers to improve the quality and safety of their products while retaining their cost-effectiveness. The use of probiotics in animal feed, especially in cattle feed, shows beneficial results in terms of animal performance, digestion, and the immune system, due to which the use of probiotics in animal feed is witnessing a surge, creating opportunities for manufacturers in the animal feed probiotics market.​ The Chinese government has launched a pilot program that aims to eliminate the use of antibiotics in livestock feed by 2020. Implementation of this new policy will directly impact the feed industry. Recently, in 2019, the Indian government banned the use of a “last hope” antibiotic on farms to try to halt the spread of some of the world’s most deadly superbugs, after a Bureau investigation revealed it was being widely used to fatten livestock.​ Hence, the antibiotic bans in the major economies, such as the China and India, are expected to open new business opportunities for feed probiotics across the world.​
