Feed Acidifiers Market Set to Exceed USD 2.03 Billion by 2026 |CAGR: 4.5%

According to a new study published by Polaris Market Research the global feed acidifiers market is anticipated to reach USD 2.03 billion by 2026. The stringent restrictions on antibiotic use as growth promoters along with the increasing demand for high quality animal feed are expected to be the major factors driving demand for feed acidifiers.


These products such several verities of organic acids and essential oils are either used as single products or two or more acidifiers can be combined to achieve higher response. Acidifiers are specified microorganism that positively affects the host by improving the balance of pathogenic to beneficial bacteria in the gut. These products are non-digestible oligosaccharides serving as substrate for antibiotics and competing with pathogens that regulate gut cell adhesion. Direct acting gut flora modulators such as essential are compounds directly modulating the microflora via growth inhibition. The product categories with specific functionality are essential components animal feed. Increasing focus on feed for higher productivity of farm animals has driven acidifiers demand.


Acidifiers such as organic acids are currently used widely in weaning piglets during the transition from suckling milk to consuming solid feed to aid in acidifying the feed to prevent bacterial growth and improve digestion of feed ingredients along with lowering the buffering capacity.  Also, the food industry uses benzoic acid as preservatives. These advantages of these products are essential factors that have contributed to its increasing market demand.


Acidifiers that are based on feeding of some certain non-digestible oligosaccharides to manipulate or control microbial composition, thereby helping in maintaining a beneficial microflora are very vital feed components. Few of the primary functions of these products include selective control of the intestinal microflora, reduction of several pathogens and the promotion of various beneficial microorganisms. These products restrict to sever gastric acidity circumstances, simplify hydrolysis by the digestive enzymes and also for gastrointestinal absorption, initiate fermentation by the intestinal microflora and provide selective stimulation for growth and other activities of intestinal bacteria that contribute to a healthily gut health. These benefits of acidifiers are expected to be the major factors driving the market.
