Ban on antibiotics in feed are expected to drive the overall growth of the feed acidulants market.

The global feed acidulants market is projected to grow from USD 2.7 billion in 2018 to USD 3.5 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period. The feed acidulants market is driven by various factors such as growth in animal husbandry, increase in demand for feed and feed additives, rise in awareness among livestock rearers for animal nutrition value, and ban on antibiotics in feed as natural growth promoters. However, inefficiency in maintaining the potency of acidulants through the logistical chain due to volatility can hinder the growth of this market.

Formic acid is projected to grow at a highest CAGR during the forecast period, in terms of value.

The feed acidulants market has been categorized as propionic acid, formic acid, citric acid, lactic acid, sorbic acid, malic acid, acetic acid, and others.The formic acid segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Formic acid is a colorless liquid and remains soluble in water in almost all proportions.This characteristic of the acidifier enables its proper mixing in animal feed, thereby allowing consistent feed formulation.

While formic acid remains highly efficient in improving apparent total tract digestibility (ATTD) of protein, it also aids in improving feed efficiency. However, excessive usage of formic acid in animal feed could result in an increase in dietary acid levels, thereby reducing palatability and affecting feed intake negatively.

The poultry type segment is projected to hold a largest market share during the forecast period.
The feed acidulants market, by animal type, is estimated to be dominated by the poultry segment in 2018.It is also projected to grow at the highest rate through 2023.

Poultry meat is universally consumed and, unlike beef and pork, does not pose many religious concerns.The only part of the mineral requirement of poultry can be met by the natural feedstuffs in their diets resulting in the inclusion of feed supplements such as acidulants in feed formulations.

In poultry feed, acidulants are widely used as antibiotic growth promoters (AGP) to help improve poultry performance. These acidulants help in the maintenance of pH levels in the stomachs of poultry, thereby allowing correct activation and functioning of proteolytic enzymes.

Asia Pacific is projected to dominate the feed acidulants market during the forecast period.
Asia Pacific is projected to dominate the feed acidulants market during the forecast period.Emerging economies such as China, Japan, and India have favorable market potential for feed acidulants; this has led to feed and feed acidulant manufacturers, adopting strategies such as expansions and new product launches to cater to the growing demand for product differentiations to provide highly efficient additives such as feed acidulants, which are organic in nature and improve gut health in livestock.

Further, the increasing demand for meat has triggered meat production in the region, due to which the uptake of feed additives such as acidulants has increased and is expected to witness a strong growth rate.

There has been a rise in the demand for meat and meat products, in accordance with the demand for a protein-rich meat diet.Pork and poultry are largely consumed in the Asia Pacific region.

The demand for poultry is estimated to increase in India and China due to factors such as focus on meat quality and public health campaigns, which encourage the consumption of low-fat protein options.Fish consumption is also increasing in the region due to similar health trends.

On the other hand, there has been an increase in the production as well as consumption of dairy products in the region. These factors are expected to drive the feed acidulants market in the Asia Pacific region.
