Speaking of the growing demand for nutritional additives from the poultry application, China is one of the most lucrative growth grounds for animal feed additives industry expansion. High livestock production and extensive animal breeding in the region has been identified as the two crucial factors fortifying the regional animal feed additives market demand. The increasing meat consumption in China has, in turn, prompted the regional industry players to incorporate additives for maintaining the quality of meat. According to reports, the meat consumption in China exceeded 50 kilo tons in 2016 and is further anticipated to surpass 60 kilo tons by 2024. With other countries, such as India, Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia following similar growth patterns with regard to massive livestock production, the animal feed additives market, across the Asia Pacific belt, is certain to account for above-average growth. It has been reported that in the year 2016, Asia Pacific witnessed highest feed production capacity, surpassing 350 million tons.
It would be prudent to mention that the growing consumer demand across these continents have expanded the scope for animal feed additives market participants and have encouraged them to expand their global reach.
