The dry segment is estimated to dominate the market for feed additives, by form, in 2018. Dry feed additives have higher demand among livestock producers, as they are easy to mix with the feed, and are easy to store and handle. Additionally, unavailability of modern feed mills and equipment for using liquid feed additives makes the dry form more preferable among the livestock farmers. Amino acids, flavors & sweeteners, minerals, probiotics, phosphates, carotenoids, acidifiers, mycotoxin detoxifiers, antioxidants, and vitamins are a few types of feed additives that are mostly preferred in a dry form.
In terms of geographical coverage, the feed additives market has been segmented into 5 regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), South America, and RoW. Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. This is due to large livestock population and higher consumption of levels of meat and dairy in the region. Developments and innovations in the production processes in countries such as China have further improved the output and capacity of the meat industry in the region. Increasing demand for processed meat, protein diet, and dairy products, due to growth in household income levels, also continue to drive the demand for feed additives in this region. Shift toward the usage of natural growth promoters and increase in demand for nutrition supplements for monogastric animals are expected to create an opportunity for the feed additives market in the coming years.
The major feed additives vendors include Cargill (US), DowDuPont (US), ADM (US), Evonik (Germany), BASF (Germany), DSM (Netherlands), Solvay (Belgium), Ajinomoto (Japan), Novozymes (Denmark), Chr. Hansen (Denmark), InVivo (France), Nutreco (Netherlands), Kemin (US), Adisseo (France), and Alltech (US). Expansions and investments have been the most dominating strategy adopted by major players, followed by acquisitions. This has helped them to increase their presence in different regions and enhance their product portfolio.
