The use of probiotics improves animal health as well as increases nutrient utilization from the feed. Probiotics have been scientifically proven to offer benefits in improving the composition and balance of the intestinal microflora, and have been demonstrated to be as efficacious as the previously used prophylactic synthetic antimicrobial growth promoters (AGP). Additionally, they have an immune-enhancing effect and have been suggested to be influential in the prevention and control of bacterial diseases. The global animal feed probiotic market is projected to reach USD 1,746.5 million by 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.5% from 2017 to 2022.--BEGIN PROMO--

Research Highlights

  • Probiotics are increasingly used in all sectors of animal and aquaculture production, although their application differs in focus for each animal species. Their consumption continues to increase as a result of consumer demands for alternatives to synthetic AGP, as they are natural products with wider applications.
  • The market for probiotics in animal feed is segmented by region, with North America accounting for the largest share in 2016, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific, respectively.
  • The primary factor driving the probiotics market would be the European Union’s (EU) ban on AGP in animal feed. The EU governing body has completely removed all synthetic AGP products from animal feed, commencing with the banning of avoparcin in 1997. This was followed by bans on tylosin phosphate, zinc bacitracin, virginiamycin and spiramycin in 1999. The EU directive 1831/2003, which legislates all feed additives for animal nutrition, has been implemented in full since January 2016.
  • There has been a steady increase in the demand for natural feed additives to improve the efficiency of animal production, in order to replace AGP products. With synthetic antimicrobials added to animal feed and being used for the past 55 years, there have been significant concerns over AGP removal, gauging from the reactions of end users.

Global Animal Feed Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) Market, Forecast to 2021 Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) are essential nutrients but are not normally produced by animals in any significant quantity. Adding DHA + EPA to animal feed helps to enhance fertility, enhance sperm count, enhance the viability of young, improve skin conditions, improve growth rate, improve feed conversion, and increase omega-3 content of meat and eggs. The inclusion of omega-3 in animal feed helps reduce inflammation, thereby reducing the intensity of allergies from flea bites, through contact and food. This is a common scenario among pets, and the consumption of omega-3-rich food products resolves this concern. In addition, omega-3 lessens skin scaling disorders, thereby promoting healthy skin. The importance of omega-3 is also emphasized by animal health organizations such as the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO), which enforces regulations for manufacturers to indicate the required allowances of omega-3 in food supplements. This is expected to have a positive influence on the animal feed market. The global animal feed DHA+EPA market is forecast to witness robust growth and is expected to reach $86.8 million in 2021, registering a compounded growth rate of 4.5% during the forecast period. An increase in the number of reported health benefits backed by scientific findings is expected to drive the omega-3 adoption rate in the animal feed industry. Several governments from around the world have published dietary recommendations about the intake of omega-3 fortified foods to curb the rising cost of medical care. Asia-Pacific is an emerging market in terms of the consumption of omega-3 products in animal feed. The expanding health-conscious population and the rising disposable income are the major factors driving demand. Furthermore, due to increased awareness in countries such as the United States and Canada, North America prevails as the largest contributor in terms of consumption of omega 3 (DHA+EPA). Besides India and China, countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore in Southeast Asia are constantly innovating products to cater to regional demand. For instance, companies in Malaysia offer Halal products, thereby promoting their products to Southeast Asian countries, which is a distinct factor that other nations lack. However, increasing concerns about the safety and sustainability of fish omega-3 ingredient sources is expected to restrain overall market growth. Furthermore, rising ocean temperature is anticipated to limit the availability of global marine life; this will also be a challenge for the growth of the DHA+EPA ingredient market. In addition, the DHA+EPA market is relatively fragmented at the global level. However, with increasing demand, competitive pricing, and proven efficacy of products, the top 3 competitor s market share will increasingly consolidate market leadership. Furthermore, manufacturers are constantly investing in R&D and innovative technologies that provide superior capabilities such as quality, purity, and high concentrates, besides catering to multiple end applications. Some of the leading producers in the segment include companies such as DSM, Alltech and Roquette, among others.

The overall growth will be primarily driven by the increased awareness of nutritional benefits of using protein and other micro ingredients in the formulation of animal feed. The food industry is expected to face the challenge of feeding more than 9 billion people by 2050, but this offers an opportunity for the animal feed industry, as well. Apart from the population growth that will probably lead to increased demand, consumers are demanding more animal protein, particularly as those in developing countries continue to adopt Westernized lifestyles. Consumers are becoming more affluent, thus their ability to afford more meat has increased. However, how much the increasing demand in developing countries will offset the steady increase in mature regions like Europe remains to be seen. In most countries, regulatory bodies ensure that the feed industry adheres to feed safety, which could be translated to food safety for human consumption. Strict regulations create increased confidence in the quality of feed ingredients manufactured. These regulations are expected to become stronger and have an impact on the market, as governments increasingly work toward ensuring food security and safety. Furthermore, globalization gives rise to increased international trade, which means that countries need to offer good product quality to stay competitive in the global market. More collaboration is expected in the industry, to ensure that issues are tackled globally. Most large participants have a global presence, which offers the participants an understanding of the regulations in different countries. Of all protein sources, Soymeal, a product from the most popular oilseed soya bean, has the highest amount of crude protein. Hence, it is in great demand, particularly in China, the largest importer of soya beans. In addition, feed ingredient manufacturers are likely to try to stay competitive by means of innovation and new product development, which will be achievable through increased investment in R&D. This, in turn, would provide more evidence that can support market growth. In addition, market participants that go the extra mile to provide technical support will have a competitive advantage, as farmers look for information on not just the know how but also the do how . Animal feed protein market is a highly fragmented market, with Sojaprotein and Wilmar garnering a significant market share due to their wide product portfolio, with offerings in almost all segments, and their global presence.
