Animal feed additives are pharmaceutical or nutritional substances that are not natural feedstuffs and are added to made-up and stored feeds for various purposes, such as to control infectious diseases in animals, to promote growth, and to enhance feed digestibility in animals.
The global animal feed additives market is growing at a steady pace and has a promising future because of the globally increasing demand for meat and meat products. Feed additives are becoming an important part of feed for animal growth and nutrition. Recently, disease outbreaks such as avian flu and foot-and-mouth diseases have also increased concern over animal health across the world. Environmental concerns, such as reduction of phosphorous content in manure are promoting feed additives consumption for animals.
