Yeast Market size for Animal Feed Application to exceed USD 2.5bn by 2027

  • Published Date: August 16, 2021

Yeast market size for animal feed application is set to surpass USD 2.5 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.


Yeast is used as an additive in animal feed and is a rich source of nutrients such as minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and proteins. It stimulates better digestion, improves feed intake, increases the count of beneficial bacteria, and improves gut & rumen activity of animals.

Strong application outlook of autolyzed yeast in pet food owing to its nutritive value will augment the yeast industry for animal feed application expansion

The autolyzed yeast market size for animal feed application witnessed a consumption of over 165 million kilo tons in 2020. Autolyzed yeast contains monosodium glutamate (MSG) and glutamic acid, which is less expensive and widely used as substitute for MSG. It offers high nutrient value for the initial development of digestive systems and is a natural growth promoter owing to which it is widely used in young pet food. The savory taste and aroma of autolyzed yeast led to increased palatability in animals, which is projected to favorably impact the market demand.

Autolyzed yeast provides nutritive components, such as peptides, amino acids, and carbohydrates, which serve as a nutritional source for anerobic rumen microbes. The increased number of beneficial rumen microbes leads to improved digestibility and a better rumen environment. This results in increased feed intake, high energy, and nutrient availability for animals, which represent substantial growth opportunities for the yeast market for animal feed application.

Increasing demand for dairy products has led to increased cattle farming, which will stimulate product demand for cattle application

The cattle feed application segment is expected to exceed USD 555 million by 2027. Yeast helps in maintaining good health, decreases health risks, and promotes better growth in cattle owing to which it is widely used as an additive in cattle feed. It is used to improve rumen & fiber digestion in ruminants, such as cows and buffaloes, and to improve milk yield & quality. Increasing cattle farming and consumption of milk, yogurt & cheese will boost yeast demand in cattle applications.

The growing demand for cheese has led to an increased focus toward cattle health for enhanced milk quality and productivity, which will augment yeast demand. Inappropriate cattle diet may affect the immune system, milk production, and overall well-being; therefore, yeast is widely used in cattle feed. Rising awareness of maintaining good animal health to keep them healthy will fuel yeast demand in cattle applications, positively impacting the yeast market for animal feed application statistics.
