Increasing awareness about feed quality to improve animal health will drive the animal feed enzymes market growth. Viscosity reduction of non-starch polysaccharides fodder, improved digestion rate along with ability to withstand acidic pH conditions are the key properties supporting product demand.

Indigestion due to lack of essential enzymes affecting the livestock health enhanced necessity for fodder additives. Inability to digest 15 to 25% of fodder among the pigs and poultry due to complex anti-nutritional factors present in the forage elements makes the product preferable among forage industry.

Rising health consciousness along with growing population has enhanced the global meat consumption. As per Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, globally average meat consumption per person is 75 pounds annually. Shifting consumer preference towards ready to eat processed meat products will facilitate product penetration.

In terms of meat consumption, China consumes about 60 kg of meat per person annually and is anticipated to reach 85 kg by 2024. This will result in an upsurge in demand for high-quality meat and dairy products. Growing awareness concerning livestock diseases coupled with high acceptance of safe livestock nourishment practices will trigger industry growth.

The industry expects highest gains from Asia Pacific. Rising population, upsurge in per capita consumption along with increasing consumer affordability are key factors driving regional industry growth. As per FAO, Asia Pacific dairy industry spending was over USD 100 billion in 2016 and it is predicted that milk production alone will reach to 120 million tons in the coming years.   

Fluctuating raw material prices due to dependency on seasonal crops will impact the animal feed enzymes market price trend. EU regulations pertaining to additives approval before being used as enzymes in fodder may lead to complex situations among the product manufacturers.
