Animal Growth Promoters & Performance Enhancers Market Trends



  • Growing preference for natural and sustainable solutions drives market growth


The market CAGR for animal growth promoters & performance enhancers is primarily driven by expanding demand for animal consumption and livestock-based products, rising need for organically produced growth promoters, and escalating animal diseases and climate change. Animal growth promoters and performance enhancers are substances used or given to animals. These products are used as they improve the utilization of animal feed. Animal growth promoters and performance enhancers help improve nutrition availability through intestinal absorption.


The goal of most livestock-related enterprises throughout the world is to maximize the efficiency of feed conversion without exposing themselves to substantial danger. This can be accomplished using animal growth promoters and performance enhancers with higher efficiency and fewer hazardous substances. As per the United Nations Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO), the United States had 94 million cattle in 2018. This has increased demand for the items as the animal population has grown, as has the desire for animals and animal-based products. The industry is shifting towards natural growth promoters and performance enhancers derived from probiotics, prebiotics, essential oils, and plant extracts. These alternatives aim to promote animal health and productivity while reducing the use of antibiotics and synthetic additives, aligning with the broader sustainability goals of the livestock industry.


Many environmental issues have arisen due to the development of very intensive input systems. Cattle grazing herds emit massive volumes of greenhouse gases, considerably contributing to the greenhouse effect. According to reports, livestock animals emit more than 100 distinct types of gases, including ammonia and methane, which contribute to warming and are more destructive than carbon dioxide. Agriculture currently accounts for around 14% of greenhouse gas emissions. According to the USDA, agricultural methane output will grow by 60% by 2030. As a result, IFIF corporate members such as Alltech (US), MSD Animal Health (US), Elanco (US), and Phibro Animal Health Corporation (US) are aiming to achieve the twin goal of profitability and sustainability. Such endeavors to produce environmentally friendly animal growth promoters are projected to provide significant growth potential in the animal growth promoters & performance enhancers market revenue.


Animal Growth Promoters & Performance Enhancers Market Segment Insights


Animal Growth Promoters & Performance Enhancers Product Type Insights


The animal growth promoters & performance enhancers market segmentation, based on product type, includes antibiotic, hormonal, feed enzymes, probiotics & prebiotics, phytogenic, and others. The probiotics & prebiotics category generated the most income (30%). This is owing mostly to their safety, natural performance-enhancing characteristics, and great nutritional value. It also promotes disease resistance and health by altering the gut microbiota, reducing pathogen shedding and disease symptoms, increasing gut immunity, and improving disease resistance and health.


Animal Growth Promoters & Performance Enhancers Livestock Insights


Based on livestock, the animal growth promoters & performance enhancers market segmentation includes ruminants, poultry, porcine, and others. The poultry segment dominated the market, accounting for 38% of market revenue (4.5 Billion). This segment's substantial market share can be attributable to increased demand for poultry meat and eggs, rising new diet approaches, and increasing antibiotic phase-outs, resulting in the development of alternatives. Besides, the rising concern over antimicrobial resistance and the need to reduce antibiotic usage in poultry farming encourage the adoption of alternative growth-promoting solutions, such as probiotics, enzymes, and organic acids, to enhance poultry health and productivity.
