For instance, per capita poultry meat consumption in the United States and Canada was 50.1Kg and 33.9Kg as compared to 48.5Kg, and 33.3Kg respectively in 2016. The per capita beef and veal meat consumption in 2019 was 26.7 Kg and 17.6 as compared to 25.4 Kg and 18.1 Kg in 2016. This has led to the commercial production of livestock which will in turn drive the feed additives market. According to the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), in 2016 the cattle and buffaloes population was 103.49 million that rose to 105.86 million in 2018. Also, the poultry bird population was 2402.37 million in 2016 that increased to 2403.69 million in 2018.
