DUBLIN, IRELAND -- (Marketwired) -- 07/09/14 -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/nxbbdv/feed_acidifiers) has announced the addition of the "Feed Acidifiers Market by Type, Livestock, Geography - Global Trends & Forecasts To 2018" report to their offering.
Feed acidifiers are organic compounds that are combined with basic feed mix to improve their overall growth and reduce feed costs. These help in improving the rate of weight gain, improve gut health, maintain level of microflora in intestine, and improve feed digestion. A variety of feed acidifiers are available, which are used in different quantities and concentrations depending upon the type of animal. The type of feed acidifier that is mostly used in feed grade of animals is propionic acid.
Europe and Asia-Pacific are the largest consumers of feed acidifier in the world. Growth observed is particularly high in emerging countries such as China, India, and Brazil, because of industrialization, and rising protein and meat consumption. U.S. is the largest market in North America for feed acidifiers.
The market of feed acidifier, by type was worth $1,949.9 million in 2012 and is projected to be $2,616.7 million in 2018, growing at a CAGR of 5.2%. The feed acidifier market is growing steadily due to increase in demand for protein-rich products and increasing meat consumption. The other driving factors for the market are the increasing awareness among farm owners towards role of feed acidifiers in bringing the overall feed cost down and the increasing use of acidifiers in treating animal diseases. The restraining factor for the market is the growth of substitute products such as metabolic peptites, microflora enhancers and herbal products. However, new technology in the feed acidifier segments such as encapsulations and coatings provide future opportunities to the market.
Key participants in the global feed acidifier market are BASF SE (Germany), Kemira OYJ (Finland), Kemin Industries (U.S.), Impextraco (Belgium), and Yara International (Norway).The feed acidifier market is witnessing rapid developments in the areas of product innovation and new technologies, with a focus on increasing efficiency in livestock production. Leading companies are focused on expansion of the business across regions and setting up new R&D centers for carrying out extensive research.
