According to the 2012 statistical data of livestock, production in China and India is steadily growing which is resulting in increased demand for feed enzymes for pork and poultry industries. This increase in demand for meat protein has triggered the meat production in the Asia-Pacific region, where uptake of feed enzymes has increased and is expected to show healthy growth. Apart from improving the nutritional value of feed, these feed enzymes are gaining importance for their role in feed cost reduction and meat quality improvement.
In the global scenario, the U.S. is among the top-three producers of feed enzymes. As animal husbandry is developing in the North American region, attention towards favorable feeding patterns for livestock is leading the demand for feed enzymes. The major livestock segments in this region are pork and poultry. The increasing demand for the poultry segment led to a rise in the demand for feed grade supplements, resulting in an increase in the demand for feed enzymes.
Royal DSM NV is a major player leading the business of feed enzymes in this market. The American Feed Industry Association governs the market for feed enzymes in this region. The demand for better and more efficient feed additives, such as enzymes, is expected to increase not only as alternatives to feed antibiotics but also to manage input costs in livestock production. The development of new feed enzymes and direct feed microbial products with customized usage capabilities will act as an opportunity for feed enzymes market players.
