Feed Acidifiers Market report categorizes the global market by Form (Dry, Liquid), Livestock (Poultry, Swine, Ruminants, Aquaculture), Compound (Blended, Single), Type (Propionic Acid, Formic Acid, Lactic Acid, Sorbic Acid, Malic Acid, Citric Acid), and Region. The feed acidifiers market was valued at USD 2.62 billion in 2017; it is projected to reach USD 3.50 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period. Increasing government aid promoting the growth of the feed industry and the high threat of diseases in livestock are factors driving this market.
How low investments toward the maintenance of feed acidifiers can pose challenges for manufacturers in the market?
The corrosive property of feed acidifiers results in significant damage while handling them, and also to the equipment where the product is processed or stored. Furthermore, manufacturers and distributors of feed acidifiers are looking at formulating efficient supply chain models for acidifiers, as these products may tend to lose their efficacy during transport. Although the regional network to reach customers is established through distributors, the feed acidifiers market has been shifting toward service-based requirements to gain market presence. The distribution of acidifiers without losing the natural nutrient quality requires effective packaging systems and a strong supply chain. In order to maintain this stability and effectiveness of acidifiers, manufacturers prefer delivering this product directly to the customer’s location.
This approach could also help increase customer satisfaction, and help improve the market presence of companies. Therefore, an efficient supply chain planning and management system is required to maintain the inventory and improve the storage of different acidifier ingredients. In such cases, manufacturers are required to maintain strong sales and analysis teams to identify and provide customer solutions, and to cater to such customer requirements. However, salts of organic acids remain colorless and mostly less corrosive in nature, than their acidic forms, and are easier to handle during the feed manufacturing process, making these the more preferred product. These factors make it difficult for manufacturers to maintain proper acidifier efficacy levels, thereby inhibiting market growth.
Key players in the feed acidifiers market include BASF SE (Germany), Yara International ASA (Norway), Kemin Industries Inc. (US), Kemira OYJ (Finland), and Biomin Holding GmbH (Austria). Impextraco NV (Belgium), Pancosma (Switzerland), Nutrex NV (Belgium), Perstorp Holding Ab (Sweden), Novus International (US), Jefo Nutrition Inc. (Canada), Anpario plc (UK), Corbion Purac (Netherlands), ADDCON Group (Germany), and Peterlabs Holding (Malaysia) are other players that hold a significant share of the feed acidifiers market.
