Feed additives are the add-ons to the feed for animals that are intended to improve the quality of feed and other nutritional aspects for better animal health and performance. Additives can improve production levels, efficiency of animals along with their health. Medicated feed additives are appropriate for cattle cow-calf and for stocker grazing along with other various types of animals that can fulfill human demand for food, milk and other agricultural operations. The primary use of medicated feed additives is to maintain animal health and promoting better growth and feed efficiency. However, the medicated feeds should be manufactured with proper terms with valid prescription and should be withdrawn accordingly if shows un-appropriate growth symptoms. Some feed additives may also affect the incidence of bloat or coccidiosis. Other feed additives also suppress estrus and reduce liver abscesses.

Medicated Feed Additives Market: Drivers & Restraints
Animals require appropriate method of providing the desired medicines for their better growth so that they can provide human with the best quality of food, milk and other secondary products. The facility and provision of providing medicines in feed is an effective and compliant method. This in turn is expected to underpin the growth for medicated feed additive market in the near future. Also, fear of food-borne and zoonotic diseases such as various types of avian flus is expected to fuel demand for medicated feed additives over the forecast period. For example, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) estimates that 320,000 cases of food-borne and zoonotic diseases occur each year in EU countries. However, reduction in usage of antibiotics globally, primarily due to government bans, contributes largely towards declining revenue growth of the medicated feed additives.
Also, increase in competition due to lower entry barriers creates product safety concerns due to large amount of local supply of additives without adequate product testing are some of the other reasons that can affect the medicated feed additive market negatively over the forecast period.
