Animal Feed Additives Market – Insights
Additives are natural or chemical substances added to preserve or improve the quality of food or a product. Feed additives are additives, specifically used in animal nutrition, to enhance the feed quality, digestibility in order to prevent diseases and improve quality of meat or food obtained from animals.
Farm animals are provided with a variety of additives such as sensory additives, nutritional additives, zootechnical additives, and coccidiostats and histomonostats. Sensory additives help stimulate the appetite of animals, allowing them to eat more; while nutritional additives provide specific nutrients to nutrient-deficient animals. Zootechnical additives are added to the feed to improve health and performance of animals, and coccidiostats and histomonostats are antibiotics used to prevent bacterial and microbial growth in the feed. Stringent regulations by the European commission have banned the use of coccidiostats and histomonostats, replacing them with probiotic alternatives. Regulation (EC) No 1831/2003 of the European Parliament and of the Council on additives for use in animal nutrition, banned coccidiostat on December 31, 2012. This has prompted various developments to find natural alternatives to coccidiostats in histomonodial and anticoccidial drugs, which help control Eimeria infections. Some of the recent discoveries are the use of vaccines and other alternatives such as sulfonamide, nicarbazin, and amprolium. Unattenuated vaccines such as Coccivac, Advent, Immucox, and Inovocox, and attenuated vaccines such as Paracox and HatchPak CocciIII are widely used. Consumption of livestock such as poultry, swine, and cattle is growing as it constitutes a protein rich diet. This is expected to drive growth of the global animal feed additives market in the near future. Feed additives are increasingly being used to meet the nutritional levels required for metabolism that enables weight gain of the animal, and prevents consumers from diseases such as bird flu and swine flu. This, in turn is a driving factor for the global animal feed additives market growth. Animal feed additives market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.43% in terms of revenue over the forecast period (2017-2025). The global antibiotics market was pegged at US$ 4.199 billion (revenue) in 2016, which is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.41%, emerging as a major product expected to drive growth for the animal feed additives market over the forecast period.
The global animal feed additives market was pegged at US$ 16.27 billion in 2016 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.43% in terms of revenue, over the forecast period.

Animal Feed Additives Market: Government Regulation
The United States Department of Agriculture, Code (592) Feed Management, was developed with a purpose to supply an adequate amount of nutrients required by livestock and poultry for maintenance, production, performance, and reproduction, while reducing the quantity of nitrogen and phosphorus nutrients excreted in manure by minimizing overfeeding of these nutrients. Feed additives used in livestock are labeled ‘organic’. However, the feed provided to birds is not rich in methionine – a proteinogen amino acid, thus bringing about the need to utilize synthetic additives such as synthetic methionine to aid in adequate feathering of birds. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, poultry feeding on Synthetic Methionine should not use the ‘organic’ labeling. A new rule set up by the USDA to reduce the acceptable limits of synthetic methionine in organic poultry. The European Union and Switzerland have a registered list of products permitted as feed additives in animal nutrition such as: a) substances as antioxidative effects, b) emulsifiers, stabilizers (e.g. organic acids), c) coloring substances, d) probiotics, e) enzyme mixtures, f) performance promoters (antibiotics, others banned since 1st January 1999), f) vitamins and provitamins, and g) trace elements.
Asia Pacific, followed by Europe and North America, respectively, accounted for a major share in the global animal feed additives market in terms of revenue, in 2016 and the trend is estimated to remain the same over the forecast period. In 2016, Europe held a share of 27.77% in terms of revenue, followed by North America (24.44%). The growing consumer knowledge for quality meat and protein intake in Asia Pacific due to rising consumer awareness coupled with meat industry, is expected to drive growth of the global animal feed additives market over the forecast period. The enzymes segment in the global animal feed additives market is expected to witness a CAGR of 4.46% from 2017 to 2025. Asia Pacific is expected to be the most lucrative market during the forecast period, due to increase in grain demand for food production with low availability of land and water resources has resulted in the growth of the meat industry, which is expected to affect the animal feed additive in the global market. The feed additives acts as a catalyst which prevents diseases in animals and improves the vitamin intake, weight gain, digestion, and enhance the quality of meat. Owing to these factors and to control diseases such as avian influenza and bird flu, the addition of feed additives is expected to drive the global animal feed additive market over the forecast period.
Multinational players need to tap potential addressable market in emerging regions with the help of developments and technological advancement
Major players, including BASF SE, DuPont, DSM, Novozymes, Danisco, Evonik Industries AG, Addcon Group, Cargill Pvt. Ltd., Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM), Adisseo Inc. France, Kemin Industries, and Inc., Nutreco N.V. are the key competitors in the global animal feed additives market. Development and innovation with technological advancement are the key market trends, which are expected to shape the industry in the near future. Among new developments, MiXscience developed ‘Vectorized Solutions, to Transport Additives by Release Technology (VSTAR)’, which is developed to provide protection and stability to active components during additive processing and in storage.
Feed additives are supplements that are added in feed of livestock to improve the nutritional level of the farm animals. Feed additives contains amino acids, fatty acids, minerals, and vitamins which helps in the growth of the animals at a healthy rate. The nutritional level of the animal feed depends on its nutritional content and also depends upon other factors such as hygiene, digestibility, feed presentation, and effect on colonic health. Farms animals’ diet consist of maize, soybean, and wheat along with high quality feed, which should contain carbohydrates, fats and proteins in particular. Increasing consumer knowledge on animal feed and prevention against diseases caused by meat consumption such as bird flu, etc. and growing meat industry in Asia Pacific and Europe is the key factor of the growth of the global animal feed additive market during 2017-2025. The animal feed additive market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.43% during the forecast period.
Increasing demand for feed enzymes and feed grade vitamins, growing demand for low volume with higher value specialty animal feed products drive the demand for organic trace minerals which is expected to propel the demand for animal feed additives market during the forecast period.
