Global Feed Additives Market- Segmented by Type, Sub Additive Type, Animal Type and Geography- Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2019 - 2024)

Purchase Report

The Global Feed Additives Market was valued at USD 27,873.8 million in 2017 and is expected to register a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period (2018-2023). China is one of the largest market not only in Asia-Pacific but also worldwide. In 2016, China is expected to consume 170.93 million metric ton of compound feed, almost 18% of the global feed consumption.

India, being one of the leading shrimp exporters, has limited number of aqua feed mills and the domestically produced feed is unable to cater to the global demand. Hence, more than half of the aqua feed is imported from other countries. Dietary supplements of sustainable feed additives, such as prebiotics, have a beneficial effect on fish and shrimp growth, especially in decreasing the feed cost per unit growth of the animal. Prebiotics can also withstand high pelletizing temperatures and have a long shelf life. This is promoting the application of prebiotics in feed, although the usage of prebiotics has not been completely accepted yet. 

One of the Fastest Market Growing Segment by Type –Amino Acids

Amino acids in animal feeds have indispensable roles in improving the efficiency of animal protein production and contribute to increasing protein supply. Being the building blocks of proteins and vital for all functions at a cellular level, amino acids are important substances in animal husbandry. Amino acids play a crucial part in anti-oxidative responses, cell signaling, gene expression, immunity etc. Depending on the ability of the animal body to synthesize the amino acids, they are classified into essential and non-essential amino acids. Lysine, methionine, and threonine are among the most essential amino acids that have to be included in the animal feed for better nutrition.


Growth in Compound Feed Industry

The global compound feed market revenue is estimated to register a significant CAGR over the forecast period. The compound feed industry is mainly driven by factors, like increasing meat consumption across the globe and growth in the processed meat industry, due to increased income of middle-class population in developing countries. Demand for high-quality compound feed from livestock industry, due to increased industrial production of meat and dairy products has elicited the growth in consumption of compound feed and feed additives. The raw materials used for compound feed production, such as maize, barley, soybean, are used for human consumption and production of ethanol. In this scenario, the feed industry competes with the food industry for raw materials. This situation has generated the demand for additives that are cost effective and enhance production. The home mixers and large farm owners provide additives to the livestock, to ensure a steady supply of high-quality meat, dairy, and derived products.


Low Innovation in Product Development

The EU and the United States implemented a ban on the use of certain antibiotics as growth promoters for animals is expected to open new business opportunities in the animal feed additives market. This ban is expected to increase uptake of other feed additives, such as enzymes, feed organic acids, and other direct fed microbial, for improving meat quality and production. The ban has led livestock producers to identify new ways to stimulate production among animals and to deliver the same benefits provided by antibiotic growth promoters. However, following the ban, meat producers outside the EU and the United States that export animal products, such as poultry and pork meat, to these regions will find it difficult to match the export standards. Several different feed additives, such as enzymes, amino acids, probiotics, prebiotics, organic acids, and proprietary blends, are emerging as potential alternatives. However, the general belief is that there is no direct replacement available for antibiotic growth promoters and further research is needed to prove the effectiveness of alternative products.
