COVID-19 impact

The covid-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the animal feed additives market. Global supply lines were interrupted by the epidemic, creating logistical difficulties in obtaining and shipping raw ingredients for feed additives. The creation and delivery of feed additives were impacted by transit restrictions, labour shortages, and lockdown procedures.

Animal Feed Additives Market Trends

Natural and organic feed additives are in greater demand as customers become more aware of the safety and quality of animal products. Consumers and producers share a common interest for animal welfare and health. Due to this, there is now more focus on feed additives that support gut health, boost immune system performance, and increase overall animal performance. To accomplish these goals, probiotics, prebiotics, enzymes, and organic acids are employed.


Regulatory constraints and customer demand for meat devoid of antibiotics have caused the use of antibiotic growth promoters in animal feed to decline. Since antibiotics are no longer necessary, there are now prospects for substitute additives including probiotics, prebiotics, essential oils, and organic acids that can boost animal health and performance.


New feed additives with enhanced efficacy and safety have been created as a consequence of ongoing research and technical breakthroughs. For instance, delicate ingredients are protected and their targeted release in the digestive system is ensured using encapsulation methods.
