Market Segmentation:

Global Feed Enzymes Market - By Type:

  • Phytase
  • Carbohydrase
  • Protease

Based on Type, the Feed Enzyme Market is segmented into Phytase, Carbohydrase and Protease. Carbohydrase segment is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period. The carbohydrase breakdown carbohydrates in several regions of the digestive system inside the animal body. The two most commonly used carbohydrase enzyme are the amylase and xylanase enzymes. The carbohydrase is a kind of commercial enzyme preparation that attacks carbohydrate releasing energy that otherwise to be lost for the animal. The carbohydrase in the animal feed improves the digestibility of carbohydrate in animals. Protease segment is also going to boost the in coming years owing to its property to act as a catalyst in digestion of protein and quickly break down it into usable nutrients once it is ingested by the animal.

Global Feed Enzymes Market - By Livestock:

  • Poultry
  • Swine
  • Ruminants
  • Aquatic Animals

Based on Livestock, the Feed Enzyme Market is segmented into Poultry, Swine, Ruminants, and Aquatic Animals. The swine segment is anticipated to hold the steady market share during the forecast period as swine is unable to utilize all components of the diet fully, so specific kind of enzyme use to be added in their feed in order to help break down of complex carbohydrates protein and phytate through carbohydrase, protease and phytase. Carbohydrases type of enzyme is most effective in the diet of the starters or the young swine. The main carbohydrate in the swine diet is glucose which is provided by corn. Most of the starch present is corn is easily digestible but the more complex carbohydrate such as fiber which is not well utilized by the pigs. So enzymes are given to the swine in order to enable the digestion of such unutilized fibers.

Global Feed Enzymes Market - By Source:

  • Microorganism
  • Plant
  • Animal

Based on Source, the Feed Enzyme Market is segmented into Microorganism, Plant, and Animal. Microorganism segment is expected to boost the feed enzyme market during the forecast period as this source is highly used in order to extract feed enzyme. Microbial enzymes are produced by using various fermentation techniques like solid-state and submerged fermentations. The large scale production of microbial or microorganism enzyme is easier as compared to plants and animals enzyme. Moreover, this source of enzymes can be easily modified through various molecular and biochemical approaches to increase their specificity.

Global Feed Enzymes Market - By Form:

  • Dry
