“Rising Urbanization Driving Demand for Animal Feed Additives”
Over the past decade, urbanization had defined trends in most economies around the world. Urbanization is expected to add significant challenges to food manufacturers. Increased urban population and changing lifestyles of consumers have altered food consumption and demand for livestock products, which has witnessed an upsurge.
Rapid growth in animal product consumption has forced the livestock industry to adapt and expand to meet society's expectations as a result of population growth and rising living standards. Consumers are looking for clean and safe meat-based products. This is creating opportunity for manufacturers of animal feed additives.
“Increased Livestock Production Surging Sales of Animal Feed Additives”
In the past two decades, rapid expansion in the production and consumption of animal-based products has led to a livestock revolution. Rapid expansion in the consumption of animal-based products is attributed to rising population and increased incomes. Urbanization is also among the major factors for the high rise in demand for meat products, which has increased livestock production.
Livestock farmers are constantly looking for products to improve the quality and performance of animals. Food consumed by livestock animals has a massive impact on the quality of meats and by-products produced. Thus, all livestock animals require balanced water, minerals, vitamins, and proteins to maintain their health.
“Increasing Concerns Regarding Animal Health”
Increased focus on improving animal digestive systems has shifted the demand for natural feed supplements, especially vitamins and minerals. Minerals are essential for livestock health and can help with feeding, conception, immune system response, and overall health. Probiotics help avoid pathogen-induced diarrhea, urogenital infections, and atopic diseases by alleviating intestinal inflammatory diseases. Demand growth of feed additives is primarily driven by the rising meat industry across the globe.
“Growth of Commercial Farming Creating Opportunity Animal Feed Additive Manufacturers”
Livestock and agriculture are examples of commercial farming, and both are flourishing. Commercial agriculture and aquaculture farming are critical to the economies of countries such as China, India, the United Kingdom, and the United States, among others. Commercial farming production has increased in response to rising demand for meat and seafood products. The commercial farming industry is being driven by increased global demand for high-quality meat and seafood products, as well as increased meat and milk consumption. The animal feed additives industry could benefit from the expansion of the commercial farming industry.
Increased commercial animal production has resulted from growing demand for protein globally, and inorganic phosphate supplements play an important role in the animal feed market growth.
“Factors Restraining Sales of Animal Feed Additives”
Rising vegan population may hinder market growth to some extent. Globally, with the unprecedented rise of veganism, sales of vegan food products have reached new heights. Social media and information technology have raised consumer awareness about how their food consumption impacts the environment.
Animal cruelty and health issues have more influence over the buying decisions of consumers nowadays, especially in developed regions such as Europe and North America. Governments across various regions of the world have designed dietary guidelines to reduce meat consumption to avoid health problems related to meat consumption. The 2nd factor that hinders market growth is increasing inclination of consumer toward plant-based meat consumption. In an attempt to cut risks of diseases as well as combat obesity, consumers are cutting off meat from their diets.
Manufacturers are concentrating on developing products with a longer shelf life, better texture and aroma, and a higher nutritional profile. In burgers, pea-based patties can easily replace chicken, beef, or pork patties. Pea-based meat products are likely to be consumed more going forward due to a variety of factors, including high protein content, meat-like texture and quality, ease of availability, and fast preparation.
