Feed Additives Market Size (2022 - 2027)

The Global Feed Additives Market was worth US$ 38.1 billion in 2021, and it is estimated to reach a valuation of US$ 52.53 billion by the end of 2027, expanding at an annual growth rate of 5.5% between 2022 and 2027.

Feed Additive is a form of additive that is used in animal feed in order to increase feed flavor and enhance palatability. The feed additive helps in the growth and development of animals and keeps them safe from diseases. The feed additive includes all the essential nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, phosphorus, iron, enzymes, flavors & sweeteners, carotenoids, acidifiers, probiotics, etc. The amino acids present in additive helps in building blockchains of proteins and then develop the body of livestock. Probiotics contain enzymes that boost the digestive system of animals and increase the palatability of livestock and keep them healthy. The phytogenic feed additive is an animal gut health solution that increases animal performance therefore, farmers demand it a lot. Feed additives are also preferred by manufacturers in order to enhance their feed products. The feed additives given to animals include poultry, swine, aquaculture, ruminants, etc. The increasing livestock population, feed mills, growing awareness among farmers, and increasing demand for animal-based products are some factors that drive the growth of the fed additive market during the projected period.


The driving force of the Feed Additive Market is the increasing demand for protein-rich animal-based products, growing awareness about the health and development and usage and benefits of feed additive among livestock farmers; and stringent regulation by regulating bodies of several nations regarding food safety & hygiene and about animal health and wellbeing.

Consumers around the world are becoming more health-conscious and likely to prefer a protein-based diet in their daily schedule. The protein diet includes dairy products, eggs, and meat and meat products. The demand for these protein-based animal products is increasing worldwide, which directly propels the growth of the feed additive market.

The framers of developed countries are well established and keep themselves updated about the latest developments in the market related to the livestock industry and are also much aware of the health of their animals. However, livestock farmers of developing nations are becoming aware of the health benefits of feed additives and other compounds. They are now moving their focus toward animal health, therefore giving feed additives to their animals and boosting the market growth.

The growing number of feed mills and producing companies are driving the growth of the market. Manufacturers are also mixing additives with the feed for the betterment of feed and increasing its shelf life of feed also. Owing to these reasons the demand of the feed additive is boosting which in turn fuels the market growth in the forecasted period between 2022 and 2027.


European Union has banned giving antibiotics to the animals in their feed as excessiveness of it affects animal health that hampers the market growth. Also the liquid form of feed additive is also not easily handled and transportable, thereby restraining feed additive market growth.
