Key Market Trends

Industrialization of Meat Production

Animal feeding plays a leading role in the European food industry and feed is the largest and most important component to ensure the sustainable production of safe and affordable animal proteins for the generation of healthy meat. This will in turn drive the feed acidifiers market to promote healthy growth in the animals. The main meat producers in Europe are Germany, Spain, France and Poland, and the United Kingdom. A feed is the major cost factor for livestock farmers. According to FAO, The total volumes of produced feed reach 375 billion EUR in 2016 in Europe as the number of poultry animals' intaking feed grew in the region from 2,412,684 per thousand heads to 2,470,547 per thousand heads in 2017. Also, the cattle meat increased from 10,546,818 metric tons in 2016 to 10,617,906 metric tons in 2017 owing to the increased demand for meat in the region. Thus, the European farmers will demand feed acidifiers in order to produce better meat quality for European consumers.
