Feed Acidifiers: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) September 30, 2014
Follow us on LinkedIn – Feed acidifiers are organic compounds, which are mixed with animal feed to increase its nutritional value. Feed acidifiers aid in weight gain, and improve gut health and digestion. Amidst the rapidly growing demand for high-protein foods such as milk, eggs and meat across the globe, the need for quality animal feed in the poultry, swine, bovine, and aquaculture sectors is on the rise, thereby driving demand for animal feed additives including feed acidifiers. Given their ability to enhance nutritional value of animal feed, and promoting animal growth, welfare and productivity, feed acidifiers have become an important constituent of animal diet. Several studies are additionally reinforcing the favorable effects of feed acidifiers on the productivity of poultry, aquaculture, and weaned piglets through decreased microbial counts in feed, reduced animal diseases and mortality, and improved growth patterns. The growing demand for feed acidifiers is also attributed to their perception as being ideal replacements for antibiotics in promoting animal growth. With governments across the world adopting stringent regulations governing the quality and safety of meat to prevent disease outbreaks, there is increased demand for acidifiers.
While single organic acids, such as propionic acid and formic acid have been used for long as feed preservatives, the past few years have seen an increase in the use of organic acid blends in animal diet. Demand is also expected to increase for microencapsulated acidifiers, which are capable of addressing issues such as moisture absorption, stimulation, instability, interference with feed’s alkaline ingredients, and causticity.
As stated by the new market research report on Feed Acidifiers, Europe represents the largest regional market worldwide. The United States is forecast to record the fastest CAGR of 5.8% over the analysis period. Demand remains strong in developed regions such as Europe and North America supported largely by legislations that ban the use of antibiotics in feed, and the steady demand for meat, especially organic meat. Meanwhile, emerging markets are poised to witness robust demand, led by continuous rise in per capita meat and protein consumption, and growing emphasis on enhancing productivity and quality of animal products in these regions.
