Growth Strategies Adopted by Major Players in Feed Enzymes Market

The global feed enzymes market size is estimated to be valued at USD 1.2 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 2.0 billion by 2025, recording a CAGR of 9.1% during the forecast period. The provision of cost-effectiveness in the usage of feed and increasing demand for animal-based products, such as meat products, dairy products, and eggs, are primarily driving the industry growth for feed enzymes.

The key players in the feed enzymes market include BASF SE (Germany), DowDuPont (US), Koninklijke DSM N.V (Netherlands), and Bluestar Adisseo (China).

BASF SE is one of the leading players in the feed enzymes market. It develops and produces feed enzymes—under its performance products segment—for poultry, ruminants, swine, aquaculture, and companion animals. It has operations in more than 90 countries and operates through its subsidiaries. The company operates across four regions, i.e., North America; Europe; Asia Pacific; and South America, Africa, & the Middle East. It has more than 100 production and research and development sites across North America. The major products of BASF SE include Natugrain TS, Natuphos, and Natuphos E.

  • In March 2019, the company launched the next-generation phytase, Natuphos E, in Indonesia. This phytase would help release efficient phosphorus, energy, and amino acids in the livestock. It would also promote the growth of swine and poultry in the country.

In September 2017, Dow merged with DuPont and started operating as a single entity, DowDuPont. This merger brought together complementary portfolios of two innovative companies, which were major players in the agriculture, material science, and specialty product industries. However, after the completion of DowDuPont dissolution in 2019, the company split into three major divisions, namely, agriculture (Corteva), specialty products (DuPont), and materials science (Dow), wherein animal nutrition products are offered under its DuPont entity. DuPont has subsidiaries in nearly 90 countries worldwide and has its manufacturing operations in nearly 50 countries. The company operates in the feed enzymes market through its subsidiary, Danisco A/S (Denmark). The animal nutrition segment of DuPont provides innovative enzymes, natural betaine, and probiotic feed technologies for poultry, swine, ruminant, aquaculture, and others. Under feed enzymes, the company also focuses on launching new products in 2019 as compared to the years prior, due to which it has been able to strengthen its position in this market. For instance, DuPont, under its animal nutrition segment, launched Axtra PHY, the latest generation of phytase enzymes in Japan.

Koninklijke DSM N. V’s businesses are grouped into three clusters, namely, nutrition, materials, and innovation center. The nutrition segment comprises DSM Nutritional Products (Animal Nutrition & Health, Human Nutrition & Health, Personal Care & Aroma Ingredients, and Pharma Solutions), DSM Food Specialties, and DSM Hydrocolloids.
