Global feed acid market is expected to grow at a CAGR between 6.5% and 7.5% over the period of 2017 – 2023. Feed acids are inorganic acids, organic acids and other essential nutrients added in livestock feed, to improve its nutritional characteristics and preserve it for longer periods. Feed acid helps in better binding of the feed ingredients. Feed acids are alternative to conventional antibiotics and other hormonal growth promoters used in feeds. Feed acids help in balancing the PH levels in feed, microbial cytoplasm and inside the gastrointestinal regions of the live stocks. Feed acids generate acidic conditions within feed and it controls the growth of pathogens. Feed acids help in improving the appetite for feed in live stocks and hence increase the intake of the feed. Feed acid activates digestive enzymes and improves digestion. Moreover, it helps in better absorption and utilization of nutrients in the feed.
Globally, the increasing consumption of diary and meat products are driving the growth of feed acid market, as it promotes faster growth of live stocks. The stringent regulations against the use of antibiotics, hormone growth promoters, and some other chemical substances drive the increasing demand for the feed acid in feed manufacturing industry. Increasing awareness about animal health in dairy and meat industry and consumers preference for food products with less toxic chemical inputs and growth hormones promote the use of feed acids as growth promoters in livestock feeds. The effectiveness of feed acid based feeds in containing the livestock endemic outbreaks enhances the demand for feed acids. The emphasis on quality of diary and meat products are driving the livestock industry to focus on health of the live stocks and it is driving the growth of the feed acid market.
The increasing preference for natural and organic diary and meat products among consumers is a major restraint for the global feed acetic acid. Antibiotics, artificial growth promoters and growth hormones are major threats to the growth of the global feed acid market, especially in countries where the regulations regarding the feed additives are less stringent. Increasing demand for diary and meat products in emerging nations is expected to provide growth opportunities for the major players in the global feed acid market during the forecast period.
