Feed Additives Market

The Global Feed Additives Market was worth $22.10 billion in 2015 and estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 4.50%, to reach $27.54 billion by 2020.


The global feed additives market is developing at a significant rate due to the increase in the livestock population for meat consumption as a source of protein. Feed additives are vital in animal nutrition, as they enhance the quality of feed, and thereby enrich the animals’ performance and health. They also subsequently enhance the yield and quality of food from animal origin.

Feed additives are used in animal nutrition to boost the quality and properties of animal fodder to enhance features such as palatability preservation, overall gut health/digestive performance, and others. They have gained reputation globally, as they further the overall health of the animal, in turn enhancing the quality and quantity of meat produced from them. For example, poultry feed additives are used to enhance the bird’s egg-laying capacity, disease prevention, and feed utilization. Likewise, a swine diet consists of various natural and synthetic additives, such as high dietary levels of copper and zinc, acidifiers, and phytase to increase the productivity and profitability of this feed.

Another major factor driving the growth of the market is the demand for low-cost meat with superior nutritional value throughout the globe.
