Global Feed Enzymes Market

Market Outlook: Feed Enzymes Market
Animal feed is consisting of variety supplements such as plant materials, vegetable proteins, cereals, and sometimes meat. These materials cannot fully digest and utilized by animals. Feed enzymes are used as feed additives to increase the digestion of animals. In order to save the feed costs, many livestock producers include enzymes in feed additives. This will enable them to produce more meat per animal or to produce the same amount of meat cheaper and faster. Enzymes catalyze chemical processes that convert nutrients into energy and new tissue. Generally, phytases, carbohydrates and proteases are most commonly used in the feed additives.

Market Dynamics: Feed Enzymes Market
Feed enzymes market is mainly driven by its cost-effectiveness in feed additives with high yield. In addition, increase in demand for the livestock, growing health concerns of animal health and increase in meat production. According to Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, “OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook” Global meat production is projected to be 16% higher in 2025 than in the base period (2013-15). Furthermore, increase in demand for dairy products and changing lifestyles in developing regions towards an increase in protein intake expected to bolster the feed enzymes market during the forecast period. However, regulatory requirements in animal supplements and high costs of feed are expected to hamper the feed enzymes market during the forecast period.
