Feed acidulants are substances that are added to animal feed to enhance flavor, consistency, shelf life, and solubility rate. They act as buffer components in feed formulations by lowering the pH level and enhancing feed solubility. The global feed acidulants market is expected to register a significant growth rate during the forecast period owing to the high consumption of animal-based products, increasing awareness regarding the importance of healthy livestock feed, and government initiatives to promote the animal feed industry. However, the rising prices of feed acidulants are hampering the growth of the market.
Prominent players in the market are focusing on product innovation and geographic expansion as key strategies to gain a competitive edge over rivals. Feed acidulant manufacturers are focusing on launching organic products to cater to the rising demand for organic products. For instance, in July 2018, BASF SE launched Lupro-Cid NA, a low-corrosive organic acid that helps in obtaining high-quality silage. Moreover, the adoption of encapsulation technology in the animal feed industry is expected to offer profitable opportunities to market players in the coming years.

Regional Market Summary
Global Feed Acidulants Market Share (%), by Region, 2017
Form: Secondary Sources and MRFR Analysis
Asia-Pacific is projected to dominate the feed acidulants market during the forecast period due to the increasing consumption of animal-based products such as meat, eggs, and milk in the region. To increase the production of high-quality meat, milk, and poultry products, farmers provide livestock with fortified feed, which is boosting the demand for feed acidulants in the region.
