Europe business should register about 6% gains by the end of 2027. The region is witnessing rising meat consumption and growing consumer concerns regarding the safety of meat & dairy products owing to widespread disease outbreaks in livestock, which should increase the cobalt nitrate market demand for animal feed additives. The European Union authorizes six cobalt salts as animal feed additives which include cobalt nitrate, sulfate, dichloride, acetate, and carbonate which represents ample growth opportunities.

Changing dietary preferences, economic development and population growth primarily in Germany, France and Spain has resulted in increasing meat consumption. The restricted availability of water & land resources for feed production and increasing life expectancy in the region has increased the demand for premium feed additives. European consumers increasingly prefer animal protein and healthy meat products which has influenced livestock farmers to adopt feed additives to enhance animal health and reduce feed cost.

Strategic acquisition is the primary business strategy adopted by manufacturers

Cobalt nitrate industry is substantially fragmented and includes various market players such as Thermofisher Scientific, Sigma Aldrich, Eastmen Chemicals, Zimi Chemicals, Yogi Dye Chem Industries, Otto Chemie Pvt Ltd, Anchor Chemicals and American Elements. Companies are primarily engaged in strategic acquisitions to expand production capacity and distribution network.

ICoNiChem, a global provider of cobalt and nickel salts was acquired by Eti Bak?r A.?., a leading Turkish mining company in December 2020. This acquisition allows Eti Bakir to both, mine cobalt and process it further for the company’s end users. ICoNiChem’s cobalt processing operations enhances the ability of Eti Bakir to achieve market leadership in the cobalt salts sector.
