Market Insights

Animal growth promoters and performance enhancers have become increasingly popular for the improvement of animal nutrition, growth development of livestock, and support of overall performance. As such, growth promoters and performance enhancers include prebiotics, probiotics, organic acids, and other essential compounds that may be needed for better nutrition. The global pervasiveness of such products for ensuring healthy livestock among others is anticipated to drive the growth of the global animal growth promoters and performance enhancers market during the forecast period of 2017 to 2023. Market Research Future reveals several key projections regarding the market.

Animal husbandry has become a massive industry with the rapid growth of the global population which has led to increased demand for meat, meat products, and other animal products. As a result, the demand for growth promoters and performance enhancers has grown considerably. The massive global demand for meat and meat products has led farmers to pay closer attention to animal health. Moreover, in the age of information, awareness regarding livestock health is widespread to include consumers. As a result, there is a high demand for natural growth promoters and performance enhancers to support the health of the animals and increase yield. Another key factor promoting market growth is the growth of the food & beverage industry which places a great demand for animal products in an effort to meet demands with innovation. Frozen food options are highly popular, and the high demand for frozen meat and meat products is driving the demand for meat which in turn is expected to lead to growth for the animal growth promoters market.

Use of antibiotics as growth promoters have been popular, however, due to the nature of emerging microbes with resistance to antibiotics has led to the banning of antibiotics for anything other than veterinary purposes. This move has been made in several developed economies and is aimed at combating the threat to human and animal life caused by antimicrobial resistance. The ban on antibiotics as growth promoters has ultimately led farmers to seek and implement the use of natural growth promoters which is expected to lead to the development of various options during the forecast period.
