COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The outbreak of COVID-19 has resulted in lockdown across regions, border restrictions, and breakdown of transportation networks. The economic uncertainty due to the COVID-19 outbreak is much higher than past outbreaks such as severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), avian flu, swine flu, bird flu, and Ebola, owing to the escalating number of infected people and the uncertainty about the end of the crisis.

With the outbreak, there was a spike in essential goods such as sanitizers and masks, and household essentials like toilet paper and bread were stocked up by customers. Most of the customer's budget was shifted to essential goods, and a major downfall in non-essential businesses was observed. As more cities went into lockdown, non-essential businesses were ordered to remain closed during the first half of the pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the out-of-home activities with border restrictions and government orders for lockdown, forcing people to stay home. Schools, colleges, and institutions were shut, and corporates across the globe observed work from home. These factors negatively impacted the sales of feed phytogenic during the pandemic. However, with the situation getting back to normal, the demand for feed phytogenic is expected to increase gradually.

Market Dynamics

The global feed phytogenic market has witnessed a significant growth rate over the last few years and is projected to register a 6.10% CAGR during the forecast period. Feed phytogenic are derived from natural sources for livestock feed. Increasing demand for natural feed additives along with negative preference towards feed antibiotics are the key factors driving the growth of the global feed phytogenic market. Additionally, increasing demand for livestock products is driving the market growth. However, the availability of substitute products is hampering the growth of the market. The global feed phytogenic market is estimated to emerge as a lucrative market for vendors operating in developed and developing economies due to the emergence of new technologies such as encapsulation and increasing demand for organic and safe meat.


  • Increasing Demand for Natural Feed Additives

Natural feed additives such as feed phytogenic promote the growth, health, indigestion, absorption, and assimilation of nutrients. They also affect physiological processes such as reproduction, immune function, and stress resistance. These plant-derived compounds are incorporated in animal feed to improve livestock productivity through the amelioration of feed properties and promotion of the animal’s production performance. Moreover, feed phytogenic also gives a specific flavor or scent to the feed as they contain a cocktail of numerous active principles. Feed phytogenic are known for their flavoring properties, thus having an impact on the palatability of diets. They exert a range of distinct biological properties, therefore having the potential to affect gut health and increase performance positively. The plant-derived compounds have been gaining close attention from livestock feeders because of the ban on antibiotics from many countries. Apart from that, the wide availability of products from different manufacturers is expected to drive the demand for feed phytogenic in the global market.


  • Availability Of Substitutes

The demand for feed phytogenic is increasing among farmers and growers of livestock as a solution to enhance the quality of feed. However, there are several substitutes available in the market, such as probiotics, prebiotics, additives, and enzymes. Probiotics used in animal feed are globally referred to as direct-fed microbial (DFM). It refers to the feeding of beneficial microbes to livestock to improve their health. The significant parameters on which DFM has a positive impact are milk yield, growth, digestion, rumen fermentation, and overall health. The most widely used DFM in animal feed are Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, Bacillus, Streptococcus, and Enterococcus. Prebiotics enhance the performance of an animal by improving feed conversion and daily weight gain. It also improves digestive problems and promotes the general health of livestock animals and pets.


  • Emergence Of New Technologies Such as Encapsulation

Feed phytogenic offer several benefits to livestock health. However, it is difficult to properly process the feed. Feed phytogenic might lose their efficiency and effectiveness owing to several factors like high temperatures and unclean environments. Players in the market are incorporating new technologies to enhance efficiency and effectiveness. Encapsulation technology is gaining massive acceptance among manufacturers. This technology helps improve its release and offers a longer shelf life by protecting it from the external environment. Feed phytogenic comes in capsule form after incorporating the encapsulation technique. Encapsulation releases higher quantities of feed phytogenic into the animal’s gastrointestinal (GI), ensuring a healthy gut and leading to improved growth performance.
