Global Animal Intestinal Health Market Report 2022: Innovations and Technological Advancements in the Animal Feed Industry Present Opportunities –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The report “Animal Intestinal Health Market by Additive (Probiotics, Prebiotics, Phytogenics, Immunostimulants), Livestock (Poultry, Swine, Ruminant, Aquaculture), Form (Dry, Liquid), Source, Region – Global Forecast up to in 2027″ has been added to from offer.

The Animal Intestinal Health Market is estimated to be valued at USD 3.7 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 5.4 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2022 to 2027. Feed additives add nutritional value to the meal regularly consumed by animals. With the increase in population, animal gut feed products have also seen an increase in demand. To meet the growing demand for feed products, manufacturers are focusing on using probiotics, prebiotics, phytogenic feed additives and other feed additives to improve gut health and livestock productivity.

Rising awareness of meat and dairy products, livestock-related health issues, and increasing industrialization of animal-processed products are the major factors driving the growth of the global animal gut health market. With the imposition of regulations by government agencies on the use of antibiotics, the demand for natural food additives to improve the quality of gut health products is expected to remain high.

Europe is the second fastest growing region which is expected to grow by 7.62% over the forecast period in terms of volume.

The European animal feed industry is one of the largest animal feed production markets in the world. European animal feed producers are using various feed additives based on probiotics, prebiotics, phytogens and immunostimulants to meet the increasing demand for high quality feed products to improve livestock performance. Various feed producers in the region are witnessing a shift in focus towards the inclusion of prebiotics, such as mannan oligosaccharides and fructo-oligosaccharides, which improve livestock performance. European feed producers prefer to use phytogenic substances, such as essential oils, as an alternative to food-grade antibiotics used in the production of pig feed. These phytogenic compounds act as a key feed additive, help increase feed intake and improve intestinal functions in livestock.

The microbial segment accounted for a larger market share during the forecast period.

The microbial segment accounted for a larger market share during the forecast period owing to the increase in the availability of food additives made using microorganisms. Probiotics contribute to weight gain, improve the digestibility of food products and improve the overall intestinal microflora in livestock species, such as pigs, ruminants and poultry. However, with increased awareness of various alternatives to microbial sources, plant sources for gut health, such as phytogenics and some prebiotics, have become popular.

The dry form segment dominates the market with 73.64% of the total market share by value in 2022.

Dry animal gut health products are preferred by food manufacturers because they are relatively less expensive than their liquid counterparts. In addition, it is easier to mix different additives in powder form. The dry form has a longer shelf life and is easier to transport. All of this makes it a preferred alternative among feed makers and feeders.
