The propionic acid segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR in the global feed acidulants market during the forecast period.
The feed acidulants market has been segmented, on the basis of type, into eight major categories: propionic acid, formic acid, citric acid, lactic acid, sorbic acid, malic acid, acetic acid, and others. Propionic acid is also used in the ensiling process for poultry feed, as it improves silage production and provides aerobic stability in silage. It also helps curb bacterial growth in molds, and hence, can also be used as a preservative in animal feed. The preservative effect of propionic acid thereby aids the prevention of feed nutrient losses and mycotoxin formation. The growing demand for feed preservation without affecting the natural properties of the feed is driving this market.
