Key Factor(s) Influencing the Animal Feed Additives Market:

Increasing Concerns over Meat Quality: Livestock animals are frequently affected by a number of diseases such as swine flu, avian flu, foot and mouth infections, etc. As a consequence, the meat obtained from these animals have the potential to infect human beings as well. To avoid this, the demand for essential animal feed additives has been burgeoning and shall continue to grow in the future.

These benefits indirectly contribute to improved outcomes such as enhanced quality of meat, eggs and dairy products. This is augmenting the demand for animal feed additives.

COVID-19’s Impact on the Animal Feed Additives Market:

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the animal feed additives market. The global animal feed industry has been affected due to closure of restaurants attributed to stringent nationwide lockdowns across the globe. Moreover, the outbreak has prompted consumers to shift to a plant-based diet, leading to a fall in meat consumption.

Countries such as Romania have prohibited exports of essential animal feed grains such as soybeans, maize and barley to non-European Union countries amid fears of the virus spreading exponentially. This downturn in the animal feed market has generated a plunge in the market for feed additives. As the world is headed towards a massive economic recession, the animal feed additives market shall register a significant downsizing of its operations. Key manufacturers must therefore ensure minimal supply-chain disruptions and device mechanisms to compensate employees in the post-pandemic period.

Rising Demand for Environmental Friendly Animal Production

Livestock animals are often struck with diseases such as bird flu, swine flu, mouth and foot infections which has raised the concerns related to safety and the quality of meat products. This has led to the utilization of specialty additives. However, increasing demand of grains such as barley, maize and wheat from other commercial foods is anticipated to hinder the growth of the market. Rise in advanced technologies coupled with consistent enhancements in in the final production on the basis of type of feed and fluctuating regulatory trends are boosting the market.

Increase in Consumption of Meat Products Fuels Demand in North America

Due to high meat consumption, North America exhibits a considerably high demand for quality meat. Thus, in order to derive high quality meat, add-on nutrition feed additives are fed to animals so that they have good digestion to build on more muscle and weight. This is important to increase the yield and productivity of animals. This subsequently boosts the market for animal feed additives.

Currently, meat and poultry consumption in the US is more than 100 Billion pound every year. The nation therefore has emerged as one of the key consumers of animal feed additives. In addition to this, the rising meat consumption has bolstered the use of animal feed additives across various livestock segments such as poultry, ruminants, aquatic and swine.

Consciousness for Diets Paving Way for Growth

For improving growth, maintenance, and milk production of livestock, vitamins and minerals are considered crucial in the diets of cattle, goats and sheep. The naturally grazed food of these animals does not always contain a vital balance of these nutrients. Seemingly, the deficiency of certain vitamins can lower the life expectancy of animals and their productivity due to issues such as bone deformities.

In poultry, vitamin animal feed additives can help to provide proper nutrition needed to counter the stress of being raised in demanding condition. Making right kind of vitamins available according to species and their nutritional requirements can lead to improved meat or egg quality, extended shelf life and translate to better availability of essential nutrients for human consumption.

Poultry segment will remain dominant

Cattle segment likely to show a higher CAGR.

Amino acids account for the leading market share

Demand for antioxidants to rise in future

How Growth will Unfold

The growing population worldwide, particularly in the Asia-Pacific, will create tremendous demand for animal food and bring with it significant challenges to sustain food quality and production over the coming decades.

Growth in consumption of milk and meat products across the globe to gain proteins and various nutrients is anticipated to boost the market. Food additives are consistent component of the increasing meat production industry across the globe. These food additives are known to be the catalysts that assist in various activities such as improving the rate of weight gain in animals, the intake of vitamins, prevention of disease, conservation and digestion which result in improved quality of meat production. Due to such factors, the demand for animal feed additives market is anticipated to considerably rise.
