Feed Acidifiers Market size is forecast to reach $3.9 billion by 2025, after growing at a CAGR of 5.4% during 2020-2025. The key factors driving the feed acidifiers market include the livestock by-product use, high threat of disease in livestock, the government assistance or funding to promote feed industry well-being, and the ban on antibiotics in the European Union (EU). The demand for feed acidifiers is rising strongly because of efforts to improve animal welfare globally. The COVID 19 pandemic, have somehow reduced the production level of protein and growth promoters, but still, for better health of livestock in current scenario, the demand of feed acidifiers is getting rise rapidly, which tends to increase the growth of the market.
By Livestock – Segment Analysis
The feed acidifiers market is subdivided into poultry, swine, ruminants, aquaculture and others by livestock. During the forecast period the segment of poultry is expected to dominate the market for feed acidifiers. At the moment, poultry constitutes the largest segment of meat production in the global meat industry. Broilers, cages, and breeders domesticated for commercial use to produce eggs and meat are known to be poultry.

By Type – Segment Analysis
Propionic acid is the most commonly used acidifier for feed on the market. Being an organically derived acidifier, it remains a desirable use as a feed additive, since it is safe for consumers, animals and the environment alike. Except when used as a chemical preservative, the acid is a widely accepted safe substance (GRAS) used by the USFDA in compliance with the regulations on feed additives and as a good manufacturing or feeding procedure. Propionic acid is used as a feed additive mainly as a dietary supplement and as a source of nutrition. Propionic acid is also used for poultry feed in the ensiling process, as it increases silage production and provides aerobic stability in silages. It also helps curb the growth of bacteria in molds, and can thus also be used as a preservative in animal feed. The preservative effect of propionic acid thus helps prevent nutrient losses in feed and the development of mycotoxins. In addition, propionic acid also helps to avoid reproductive disorders, intestinal issues and animal immune deficiency. Such factors helped to sustain the dominance of propionic acid in the feed acidifiers industry.
By Form – Segment Analysis
Feed acidifiers are used mainly in dry form. Because of its ease of use, packaging, and transportability, most companies in the feed acidifiers industry sell their products in the dry form. Because of their free-flowing nature and ability to provide consistency these products are commonly used in feed formulations. Such factors tend to drive the dry type of feed acidifiers market.
Geography – Segment Analysis
With rapid economic growth in the region, demand for meat is growing for both domestic consumption and exports, particularly in countries such as China, India, Japan and Thailand. This increased demand for meat has triggered meat production in the region, which has resulted in increased consumption of feed additives such as acidifiers and a healthy growth rate is expected. In addition, various countries, including South Korea and Slovakia, have prohibited imports of pork from Germany because of the health risks involved. Using natural feed additives, like acidifiers, provides animals with healthy nutrition and protects them against other adverse environmental entities.
Drivers – Feed Acidifiers Market
High threat of diseases in livestock
Disease outbreaks such as avian flu, BSE (bovine spongiform encephalopathy) and SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) not only affect livestock breeding and the economy but pose a danger to human health as well. The outbreak of swine diarrhea in the United States has caused major losses for pig farmers. Moreover, due to the hot and humid climate conditions, countries such as China, India and Indonesia are constantly facing outbreaks of avian flu and swine flu. Feed suppliers, meat producers, wholesalers, retailers and, eventually, livestock farmers experience financial losses due to the culling of disease-affected animals, which also contributes to a decrease in animal productivity. In such cases, the use of feed acidifiers has proven to be an effective tool for reducing disease outbreaks by improving animal health, improving feed quality, inhibiting the growth of pathogenic bacteria, and reducing the risk of sub-clinical infections.

Challenges – Feed Acidifiers Market
Rising prices of feed acidifiers
The price increase pattern for feed acidifiers was observed, as a result of which the demand for these goods was impeded. Food acidifier manufacturers face increasing commodity costs and declining availability, causing market tensions that have led to higher pricing structures. For instance, formic acid and propionic acid, which boasts a wide range of applications including animal nutrition, have experienced a rise in demand, leading to an increase in their prices. Apart from being used as a feed preservative and acidifier, formic acid is often used for efficient dye fixation in leather processing and acts as a re-tanning agent. In addition, various manufacturers such as BASF, have increased the price of formic and propionic acid in 2018. This increase in prices is expected to follow after a recent increase in similar product prices, in 2017. This factor tends to constrain the growth of the market.
Technology launches, acquisitions and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the Feed Acidifiers market. In 2019, the market of Feed Acidifiers has been consolidated by the top five players accounting for xx% of the share. Feed Acidifiers Market top 10 companies are BASF SE, Yara International ASA, Kemin Industries, Inc., Biomin Holding GmbH, Kemira Oyj, Perstorp Holding AB, Novus International, Inc., Corbion NV, Impextraco NV, Addcon Group GmbH, Anpario PLC, Peterlabs Holdings Berhad, Jefo Nutrition, Inc., Pancosma SA, and Nutrex NV, among others.
Pancosma acquired Btech (Brazil), a company providing feed additives, in January 2016. This acquisition reinforced the firm ‘s position on the Brazilian feed additives market.
Novus International, Inc. opened a new fabrication facility in Calhoun County, Texas, U.S. in November 2017.
Kemin had acquired Agri-Marketing Corp in January 2018. This provided exclusive distribution and fabrication services in Canada for Kemin ‘s products. The new Kemin location will focus on serving the market for animal nutrition and health and the pet food and rendering industries. It’ll look to expand its business by offering an expanded portfolio.
Acidifiers is an effective solution for increasing the digestibility of the nutrients. Organic acids are required to reduce the chyme ‘s pH and thereby increase the digestibility of proteins. Supplementation of the Acidifier mixture in the diet of broiler birds will contribute to an increase in overall digestibility.
Growing the population’s disposable income and the consumer health awareness of protein-enriched products such as milk, eggs, and meat are key factors affecting Asia-Pacific feed acidifier market growth.
