According to the European Commission, “feed additives are products used in animal nutrition for purposes of improving the quality of feed and the quality of food from animal origin, or to improve the animals’ performance and health, e.g. providing enhanced digestibility of the feed materials.”

Feed additives have played an important role in improving both the production quantity and quality in farms. At a time, when global demand for meat and poultry products is growing at a robust pace, safe and affordable feed additives are growing in demand from end-use sectors. Feed additives are also gaining traction in the pet food segment, as pet humanisation trend is promoting greater emphasis on the health and well-being of pets.

Market Value and Forecast

The global animal feed additives market was valued at US$ 14.0 Bn in 2015, and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 2.7% over the forecast period (2016–2026). The market will witness a gradual shift from antibiotics to feed additives made from natural and organic ingredients. Growth of the global animal feed additives market is driven by increasing emphasis on preventing foodborne and zoonotic diseases, such as various types of avian flus. Rising demand for meat and poultry products, driven by a steadily growing middle class with substantial disposable income is also influencing farm owners to increase their production quality without compromising on quantity. As more people turn to frozen meat products, farm owners have had to meet stringent quality checks and guidelines to meet safety standards, fuelling the inclusion of feed additives in farms.

Other key factors driving demand for feed additives include the all-pervasive pet humanisation trend and shift towards lean protein in daily diet. Maintaining health and well-being of animals and birds without causing any side effects is driving demand for natural feed supplements, such as probiotics.
