The feed yeast market includes major Tier I and II suppliers like Associated British Foods Inc., Archer Daniels Midland Company, Alltech Inc., Cargill, Lesaffre, Angel Yeast Co. Ltd., and Lallemand Inc. These suppliers have their manufacturing facilities spread across various countries across Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, South America, and RoW. Though COVID-19 has impacted their businesses as well, there is no significant impact on the global operations and supply chain of their feed yeast. Multiple manufacturing facilities of players are still in operation. The international trade barriers, closure of restaurants, hotels, and live animal markets, supply chain hindrances, consumption patterns of livestock-based products were considered to be mildly significant, which has disrupted the market for feed yeast.

However, during this pandemic situation, livestock farmers and animal breeders are facing minimal challenges in this market as yeast are found abundantly everywhere; on cereal grains, grain by-products, silages, hays and are even present in the soil and water and can be cultured rapidly and easily. So even if the processing plants or laboratories are closed, livestock farmers and animal breeders who source feed yeast from different manufacturers, can themselves practice live yeast culture. Thus, the decline in 2020 in the feed yeast market growth is mainly due to the major impact of COVID-19 pandemic. Gradually, as the restrictions of the government measures are likely to relax, the market for feed yeast would witness a slight increment in the upcoming years till 2025.
Increasing concerns about the COVID-19 spread on livestock and the rising awareness among consumers about consuming such livestock products have led manufacturers in the feed industry to opt for various natural and organic alternatives such as probiotic yeast. Feed yeast being a natural additives will witness an increase in its usage as more people are opting for organic and healthy products as compared to synthetic products. These growing concerns of consumers will require breeders to adapt natural additives, such as feed yeast.
The use of yeast derivatives for feed production is projected to be the largest market during the forecast period.
Beta-glucans, nucleotides, and mannooligosaccharides are the major yeast derivatives that exhibit efficient pathogen binding capacity, which restricts the growth of pathogens in the animal body. In addition, beta-glucans are the type of yeast derivatives that trigger the immune response in the animal body. The health benefits associated with the use of yeast derivatives as a feed additive increases its demand in the feed industry. Thus, the yeast derivatives segment is projected to witness a largest share in 2019.
The Saccharomyces spp. segment is estimated to dominate the market during the forecast period.
Saccharomyces Spp. such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Saccharomyces boulardii are majorly used for yeast production and is used as one of the most important ingredients in feed. With the increasing demand for natural growth promoters for animals, the preference for Saccharomyces Spp. has increased as it is considered to be one of the best sources for nutritional yeast. The Saccharomyces Spp. segment accounted for the highest share in the feed yeast market in 2019 and witnessed high demand for use in feed yeast production.
