The poultry segment is projected to account for the largest feed antioxidants market share, by animal
In poultry production, one of the major factors for feed is the cost; hence, reducing feed costs per bird is a priority. Poultry production has to be efficient as feed has to be converted into meat and eggs. Feed costs can be reduced by adding feed additives such as enzymes and antioxidants, which increase digestibility and prevent the loss of nutrients, with the result that the poultry gains more nutritional value from the same amount of feed. Companies such as Cargill, Koninklijke DSM N.V., and Kemin provide feed antioxidants such as carotenoids, tocopherols, synthetic antioxidants and citric acid, BHT, butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), and tocopheryl acetate for the poultry industry.
The BHT segment is projected to account for the largest synthetic feed antioxidants market share
Synthetic antioxidants are generally produced as pure substances with consistent composition and are applied in well-defined mixtures with pure substances. Higher stability, easy availability, and low cost of production fuel the growth of the synthetic segment in the feed antioxidants market. Also, it protects fat-soluble vitamins and other nutrients against oxidative degradation, along with the loss of active ingredients in feed. Asia Pacific is projected to be the largest and fastest-growing BHT market. This is attributed to the growth of the feed industry in the region.
The Asia Pacific region is projected to account for the largest market share during the forecast period.
Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of the feed antioxidants market in 2018. Asia Pacific, being the largest continent with a relatively fast economic development, is witnessing a rising demand for meat. Consequently, to produce quality meat, feed antioxidants are gaining importance and being incorporated to prevent spoilage and increase shelf-life.
