Report Outlook

The global animal feed additives market was valued at USD 44.70 billion in 2023 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period.

Animal feed additives refer to substances incorporated into animal feeds to enhance their nutritional content, improve overall animal health, and optimize performance. These additives can include vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, and other bioactive compounds. The primary goal of using these additives is to ensure the well-being of the animals, promote efficient growth, and enhance the quality of animal products such as meat, milk, and eggs.

The global increase in demand for animal-derived products, driven by population growth and rising incomes, has intensified animal farming practices. To meet the increased demand for animal products, farmers are increasingly turning to feed additives to maximize production efficiency and maintain the health of their livestock. Also, advancements in animal nutrition science and a growing awareness of the importance of balanced diets for animals contribute to the expanding market for feed additives. The animal feed additives market is expected to witness sustained growth due to ongoing research and development efforts aimed at producing innovative and sustainable feed additives. The increasing focus on organic and natural alternatives, combined with advancements in biotechnology, presents opportunities for market players to address both the growing demand for animal products and the need for environmentally friendly and ethical farming practices.

  • The amino acids segment accounted for the highest market share in 2023

In 2023, the amino acids segment dominated the animal feed additives market, capturing the highest market share since amino acids are the building blocks of proteins essential for the growth, development, and overall health of animals. As animals often cannot synthesize all the necessary amino acids independently, they must obtain them through their diet. In animal feed additives, amino acids are commonly included to supplement and balance the amino acid of feed, ensuring that animals receive a complete nutritional supply.

This is particularly important in intensive animal farming practices, where the demand for high-quality and nutritionally balanced feed is essential to achieve optimal growth rates and enhanced productivity. The emphasis on maximizing animal performance and improving feed efficiency has driven the demand for amino acid-based additives, making it the leading segment in the animal feed additives market.

By Form Analysis

  • The dry form of animal feed additives is estimated to dominate the market over the forecasted period.

Dry animal feed additives, including powders, granules, and pellets, have gained attention primarily due to their convenience in handling, storage, and transportation. The dry form allows for easy integration into various types of animal feed, ensuring uniform distribution and accurate dosing during the feed manufacturing process. This results in enhanced accuracy in meeting the nutritional requirements of animals.

Also, the dry form of animal feed additives offers improved stability and shelf life compared to their liquid additives. This stability is important in maintaining the effectiveness of the additives over time, especially during storage and transportation, where exposure to environmental factors impacts the quality of the product.  The ease of storage also causes cost savings for both manufacturers and end-users, as it reduces the need for specialized facilities and lowers the risk of spoilage or degradation.

Along with this, the dry form provides flexibility in formulation, allowing for the combination of multiple additives and active ingredients in a single blend. As the animal feed industry continues to focus on efficiency, precision, and cost-effectiveness, the dry form of animal feed additives emerges as the preferred choice, contributing to its estimated dominance in the market.
