Key Market Trends

Vitamins Dominate The Feed Premix Market in the Region

Vitamins are among the key ingredients in feed premixes. Vitamins are active, organic compounds that are vital for the body substances and have a crucial impact with only small amounts in the feed to maintain physiological functions. A few vitamins play a role as co-enzymes in metabolic processes. Vitamin premix prevents and relieves all types of stress conditions effectively thereby, improving the production performance of the animal. It also helps to develop enhanced body resistance against infections. Under intensive growing conditions, poultry birds are especially susceptible to vitamin deficiencies and, hence, the increasing industrialization of poultry production is expected to drive the vitamin segment of the poultry feed premix market, which is a major segment of the whole feed premix market of the GGC countries. Vitamin premix is also a very important part of dairy cattle feed, rising demands in this segment are also augmenting the vitamin feed premix market of the region.
