Animal feed enzymes are catalysts or chemicals which are released by cells to accelerate the rate of specific chemical reactions. Animal feed enzymes are added to animal feeds and released in the digestive tract for the purpose of food digestibility. They are used as tools by livestock manufacturers for enhancing the nutritive value of feed components, prevent environment degradation along with reducing feed costs.

Animal Feed Enzymes Market growth is attributed towards rising per capita meat consumption owing to easy affordability & upsurge in middle class population. The average amount of meat consumption has been doubled from past 50 years with a rise from 23kg in 1961 to 43kg in 2015. Meat consumption in China was over 50kg per capita in 2017 owing to rising urbanization, rapid lifestyle changes and increasing incomes. The country consumes approximately 28% of the world’s meat produces which is nearly double as the U.S.

Animal feed products are basic and expensive elements for breeding monogastric animals. These accounts for more than 70% of the overall costs incurred. Enzymes are utilized for enhancing the productivity of feed stuff along with addressing issues related to animal feed including digestibility, reduction of antinutritional factors and permitting the usage of low cost ingredients. Also, these products are further used for reducing the environmental risks associated with manure and waste disposal.  

Global animal feed market was valued at over USD 19 billion in 2017 pertaining to rising demand for milk and dairy products which requires efficient maintenance of high quality feed for enhancing production. Animal feed enzymes are used for efficiency thereby improving nutrient release and reduction in cost of per pound of meat.

Regulation (EC) No. 1831/2003 of the EU parliament establishes a community procedure for the usage of feed additives and supervision of labeling of feed additives & premixtures. The regulation also provides a basis of assurance safeguarding animal, human and environmental welfare in related to feed additives.

Dry form to remain dominant formulation in animal feed enzymes production

Dry formulation is expected to dominate animal feed enzyme market over liquid formulation. The growth is attributed towards the ability to sustain temperature in fodder processing, better thermal stability and easy handling. The easy availability of these products in powder and pellet forms increase their consumption rates.

Animal feed consists of various proteins essential for muscle growth in livestock animals. Powdered products break into soluble amino acids which provides easy digestibility and high absorption rate in animals. Also, they improve uptake of nutrients along with increasing protein availability in feed products thereby promoting market growth.

Phosphorous requirements in animal diets to boost phytase consumption

Animal Feed Enzymes Market By Phytase

Phytase feed enzymes of animal feed enzymes market is expected to witness prominent market share over other products which includes carbohydrase, protease, and non-starch polysaccharides. Phytase is created by microbes found in gut of sheep and dairy cattle, making it feasible to utilize the phytic acid found in grains as a rich source of phosphorous. These are nutritional animal supplements used in livestock diets as naturally occurring phosphates are unavailable in feed ingredients. Adding plant phosphorous content in poultry and swine diets helps in reduced feed costs and lower levels of inorganic phosphorous in diets. Also, it provides better sustainability of animal production.

Phosphorus is required in cattle nutrition for growth, maintenance & lactation purposes to enhance fertility and calving rates. Additionally, it is used for maintenance of skeletal tissue, osmotic pressure & acid based balance, energy utilization and transfer, protein synthesis and appetite control. Phytase increases the bioavailability of phosphorus from oilseed meals and cereals thereby reducing the consumption of inorganic supplementation.

Rising meat quality concerns in Europe to be a leading cause of animal feed enzymes consumption

Germany animal feed enzymes market from swine applications may expect gains at over 5.5% by the end of 2026. Beef & veal, poultry, pig and sheep meat are the major meats in the EU region accounting for approximately one quarter of total agriculture production. Meat is considered to be a high quality source of protein requirements among European consumers and important component for traditional dishes.

Prevalence of various livestock diseases including swine flu, avian influenza and food & mouth diseases has raised the demand for animal feed enzymes. These diseases create a major concern regarding quality of meat as they affect the smell, firmness, flavor and juiciness of final product. The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) focuses on improving meat quality and encouraging on environmentally sustainable farming methods. Animal feed enzymes are used for effective digestion of protein, energy and phosphorus which further reduces animal feed costs, provides sustainability,  safeguard animal health and enhances feed quality.

Agreements & joint ventures remains key market growth strategy

Major players in the animal feed enzymes market are focusing on collaborations and R&D activities to enhance their global reach and market presence. Global market consists of industry participants such as BASF, DSM, Chr. Hansen A/S, Novozymes, Adisseo, Novus International, Dupont/Danisco A/S, AB Enzymes and Lonza Group.

In January 2018, Archer Daniels Midland Co. and Qingdao Vland Biotech Group entered into an agreement for commercialization & development for enzymes in animal feed applications. Also, ADM is focusing on developing R&D lab in the U.S., which directly support activities related to joint development agreement. Under this venture, the companies share enzyme producing strains for the development of animal feed enzymes which improves overall animal health.

In January 2016, Novozymes and Adisseo entered into a collaboration for launching their probiotic product named Alterion for poultry application. The product is developed from strains of Bacillus subtilis, which improves gut health, and minimizes formation of unwanted bacteria in digestive tract of livestock. With this collaboration, Novozymes performed in-vitro testing and was responsible for developing and production. Adisseo, on the other was responsible for in-vitro testing and marketing & sales activities.
