Technological advancement in forage industry coupled with rising livestock breeding mainly in China, India and Brazil will drive animal feed organic trace minerals market growth. Stringent government rules and regulations particularly through REACH and FDA towards inorganic product consumption and unsafe fodder production will further fuel the product market growth in the forecast time frame. However, increase in R&D expenditure related in developing organic minerals are higher in comparison to inorganic counterparts which hamper the price effect of animal feed organic trace minerals market.

Animal Feed Organic Trace Minerals Market, By Mineral

Zinc should surpass USD 230 million in 2016, as it is a vital ingredient in livestock fodder for improving the immunity of animals. Increased product consumption in catalytic, structural, regulatory functions and RNA/ DNA synthesis by increasing replication and cell proliferation will propel animal feed organic trace minerals market demand.

Iron is one of the major consumed micronutrient mineral followed by zinc and accounted above17% of the market share in 2016. Iron is crucial for the digestion of ruminants as it the key oxygen carrier in the body. Other major micronutrients elements include manganese and copper used in livestock fodder to improve the resistance of diseases. High demand for micronutrient elements mainly in South America, Europe, and Asia Pacific is driving animal feed organic trace minerals market growth.


Key micronutrients including zinc, copper, and selenium are involved in vitamin metabolism and protein in livestock. Micronutrient are essential for lactation performance, reproductive status, and immune system of dairy cows to optimize the productivity and health of dairy cows.

Animal Feed Organic Trace Minerals Market, By Livestock

Animal feed organic trace minerals market size from poultry will witness gains over 7%. Increasing domestic consumption supplemented with low international cost leads to rise in demand for poultry meat particularly in South Africa, Vietnam, Japan, Cuba, UAE and Saudi Arabia. The global poultry meat was 116 million tons in 2016 and will exceed 131 million tons by 2024.

Substantial number of pork meat manufacturing facilities in Europe especially in Germany and France will propel animal feed organic trace minerals market revenues. Latin America, led by Brazil revenues generated from pig were over USD 3.5 million in 2016 and is anticipated to grow by 5% by 2024.

Ruminant market is estimated to worth over USD 300 million up to 2024. Rising demand for milk and milk products will propel the industry in this segment. Rise in global consumption of red meat may further drive animal feed organic trace minerals market.

Industry Background

Animal Feed Organic Trace Minerals Market Segmentation

Thesee minerals are metallic ions necessary to resist against diseases. Glutathione reductase, thioredoxin reductase, superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase, ceruloplasmin, and catalase are key enzymes that act as an oxidants neutralizer. Enzymes play a key role against chemical agents produced under different stresses and contribute to general health of livestock by enhancing the immune system.

When an animal is fed with organic minerals, it can store some of that mineral in its tissue. This provides a reserve for the animal but more importantly those minerals help to make meat more nutritious and the advantage can move up the food chain ecosystem in the environment. Organic trace minerals are used in animals to increase gut absorption and enhance bioavailability. When minerals are bound to chelating agents consisting hydrolysed proteins or amino acids, they turn out to be more stable and less reactive in the digestive tract.

Animal feed organic trace minerals market is administered by various regulatory bodies in different countries. These micronutrient elements to be used for poultry diet are obligatory to undergo stringent approval process by these regulatory bodies including EFSA, EU and FDA.
