Market Overview

The North America Feed Acidifiers market is estimated to register a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period (2020-2025). Animal feed Acidifiers help to control microbial growth, reduction of feed buffer capacity, inhibit pathogenic bacteria, and also improve nutrient digestibility. Acidifiers are also found to enhance congestion and microbiological balance in the alimentary and digestive tracts of livestock. Acidifiers included in the feed are known to maintain low pH in the livestock preventing diseases, activating digestive enzymes, and promoting the homogenous blending of the feed. They are also known to substitute the effects of certain antibiotics. These benefits combined with rising awareness, preference in quality and concerns about the health of livestock have fuelled the growth of the acidifiers market in North America.

Scope of the report

Animal feed Acidifiers are organic acids incorporated into the feed for nutritional or preservative purposes. Feed acidifiers help promote healthy growth in animals by controlling harmful bacteria and improving digestion, which can help guard against disease and are becoming increasingly prevalent in poultry production and pig farming. The market is segmented by type, by animals and by geography.

Key Market Trends

Poultry Production is Driving the Market

By the addition of organic acids in the poultry diet, the population of salmonella and other pathogenic bacteria decreases so these organic acids act as antimicrobial agents. Organic acids become more beneficial by using correctly along with nutritional, managerial, and biosecurity measures. It improves the protein and energy digestibility, reduced pH of digestion, increases pancreatic secretion, and also have trophic effects on the intestinal mucosa. They also improve carcass yield and body weight gain. When the blend formic and propionic acids are used then the performance of broiler improved because they are also acting as growth promoters. North America has seen an increase in poultry meat consumption over the years and this is likely to support the feed acidifiers market in the region.

Propionic acid Dominate the Market in the Region

Propionic acid dominates the feed acidifier market. It is organically sourced and hence a preferred choice is given consumers and animal's health benefits. Propionic acid is mostly used as it supplements enzymatic action to improve nutritional and mineral uptake from feed alongside balancing the gut microflora. It also improves feed conversion & survival rates. Propionic acid improves silage production and provides aerobic stability in silages, this preservative effect of propionic acid thus aids the prevention of nutrient losses and mycotoxin development. Hence, these factors help the augmentation of propionic acid feed type and make it dominant in the feed acidifiers market of North America.
