Feed additives are vital ingredients used to provide essential nutrition to livestock and to improve their overall growth and output. The world animal feed additives market is poised to witness significant growth during the forecast period, owing to growing consumption of meat products, increasing concerns over meat quality, and rising safety concerns associated with the outbreak of livestock diseases. The demand for meat and meat-based products are expected to grow two-fold by 2030 in the developing countries. Global industrialization of meat products is expected to boost the growth; however, factors such as increasing prices of raw materials such as maize, wheat, barley & others and stringent regulatory guidelines for feed additives would hamper the market growth.
