Animal Feed Additives Market Overview:
The global animal feed additives market size was valued at $19,642 million in 2017, and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% to reach $31,387 million during 2018 to 2025. Feed additives are used in animal nutrition to enhance the quality and properties of animal feed and to boost features such as overall gut health/digestive performance, palatability preservation, and others. They have gained significant importance globally as they improve the overall health of animals, which in turn improves the quality and quantity of meat produced. For example, in poultry diet, feed additives are used to improve the egg laying capacity of birds, feed utilization, and disease prevention. Similarly, a swine diet includes various natural & synthetic additives such as acidifiers, high dietary levels of copper & zinc, and phytase to boost the performance and profitability of this feed.

Increase in global meat consumption, industrialization of meat products, and rise in awareness of the quality of dairy & meat products consumed drive the growth of the global feed additives market. However, increase in raw material costs restricts the market growth.

The global animal feed additives market is segmented based on additive type, livestock, form, function, and region. Based on additive type, the market is categorized into amino acids, antioxidants, feed enzymes, feed acidifiers, vitamins, minerals, binders, antibiotics, and others. Amino acids are sub-segmented into methionine, lysine, threonine, tryptophan, and others. Antioxidants are further segmented into BHA, BHT, ethoxyquin, and others. Feed enzymes are further classified into phytase, non-starch polysaccharides, protease, xylanase, and others. Feed acidifiers are sub-segmented into formic acid, butyric acid, fumaric acid, acetic acid, and others. Vitamins are further bifurcated into water soluble and fat soluble. Minerals are sub-segmented into zinc sources, iron sources, manganese sources, and copper sources. Binders are further divided into calcium lignosulphate, guar (Arabic) gum, and others. Antibiotics are subdivided into tetracycline, penicillin, and others. Based on livestock, the market is categorized into swine, ruminants, poultry, aquatic animals, and others (equine, pets, and birds). According to form, it is classified into dry, liquid, and others (powder and pellet form). As per function, it is fragmented into single function and multifunction. Based on region, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
