Animal Feed Organic Trace Minerals Market by Emerging Trends, Top Companies and Forecast to 2027

The animal feed organic trace minerals market to grow rapidly due to the rising acceptance of mineral chelates to offer enhanced gut absorption and bioavailability in animal feed As organic mineral sources show a reduction in their excretion, they decrease environmental pollution.

The escalating pressure from legislators and consumers on the animal production industry has triggered a higher demand for sustainable products. Though forages and concentrates match some mineral needs in animal feed, there is a thriving requirement for supplemental minerals that support animal health and welfare while reducing the carbon footprint. There is also a widening focus on improving production efficiency and limiting the use of antibiotics.

According to report by Global Market Insights, Inc., the global animal feed organic trace minerals market size will cross a revenue share of more than USD 1.3 billion by 2027.

The scaling production costs and profit margins across the poultry industry have compelled nutritionists to continually come up with effective measures for achieving the highest production possible by enhancing the flock’s performance with optimal nutrition, management and genetics. Driven by this, organic trace minerals are largely preferred for optimizing poultry performance and providing optimum mineral nutrition. This, in turn, results in improved animal health, lower costs, greater profitability, fewer condemnations as well as reduced environmental impact.

Owing to these challenges, numerous organic trace minerals, including copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), iron (Fe), selenium (Se), manganese (Mn), and others have gained prominence as they facilitate good development, fertility and immunity to animals. They are mainly essential micronutrients that support growth performance, as well as ensure high quality of the final products. These trace minerals are also required to maintain health, reproduction, production, and adequate mineral stores mainly in cows.

The rapidly growing poultry sector has also stirred the increase in focus on mineral deficiencies in the birds and broilers. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), poultry meat accounted for over 39% of the global meat production in 2019. The surging risks related to deficiencies of minerals leading to reduced performance, leg breakages, gait problems, skin tearing, lesions, and decreased marketability of chicken paws will also favor the demand for organic trace minerals.

The increasing prevalence of mastitis in cattle is also acting as a booster for the adoption of organic zinc as it offers enhanced resistance and helps maintain skin integrity as well as the keratin lining of the streak canal. Recent IIT-Roorkee study in India has shown that bovine mastitis results in over 70% loss in milk production. This trend is likely to push the animal feed organic trace minerals market for zinc products in the forthcoming years.

In a nutshell, minerals from organic sources are increasingly preferred over their inorganic counterparts, on account of their bioavailability, and improved milk production, reproduction, & body conditions in livestock and poultry. These minerals can be added at much lower levels in the animal diet, and do not report any negative impacts on broiler, birds and pigs.

The inclusion of organic zinc in animal feed has proved beneficial in the formation of collagen in order to give strength to skin and bones. The rising number of zinc-deficient birds, which are prone to diseases that lead to poor efficiency, increased mortality, and subsequently, economic loss has stirred the higher need for trace minerals to support healthy tissue development.
