“The ban on antibiotics in certain regions has significantly improved the demand for feed acidifiers”
The feed acidifiers segment is projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the feed preservatives market from 2016 to 2022, as these products are a suitable alternative to antibiotics and are effective against harmful bacteria. With stringent export regulations for meat products containing antibiotic residues, meat processors have been cautious on the usage of additive components when fed to animals. Acidifiers such lactic acid and acetic acid produced through bioreactors have been gaining acceptability in terms of regulatory requirements; however, there are apprehensions with respect to its effectiveness as compared to propionic acid.
“Industrialization of poultry sector across developing markets has been a strong factor for the market growth”
The poultry segment accounted for the larger market share in feed preservatives in 2015, due to the increasing growth of poultry industry as an organized sector in Asia-Pacific and Latin American regions. With the increasing usage of feed additives and supplements to improve livestock productivity, the demand for acidifiers is also projected to gain strong growth, especially among mono-gastric species such as poultry and swine.
“The Asia-Pacific region is projected to be the fastest-growing in the feed preservatives market”
The Asia-Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2022. The shift towards organized farming in poultry and aquaculture sectors in emerging markets such as India, China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand has been a boost for the growth of the feed industry. Therefore, the need for feed preservatives has also increased with the growing demand for compound feed and feed premix in these regions.
