The "Feed Acidifiers Market by Type (Propionic Acid, Formic Acid, Lactic Acid, Citric Acid, Sorbic Acid, Malic Acid), Form (Dry, Liquid), Compound (Blended, Single), Livestock (Poultry, Swine, Ruminants, Aquaculture), and Region - Global Forecast to 2023" report has been added to's offering.

The feed acidifiers market is estimated to be valued at USD 2.73 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 3.50 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period.

The market is driven by the growing government aids or funds in the feed industry and high threat of diseases among livestock.

The feed acidifiers market, based on type, has been segmented into propionic acid, formic acid, citric acid, lactic acid, sorbic acid, malic acids, and others. The market for propionic acid is estimated to dominate in 2018, and is projected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period. Being an organically sourced acidifier, its usage as a feed additive remains a favorable one, as it is safe for consumers, animals, and the environment alike. Even when used as a chemical preservative, the acid is generally recognized safe (GRAS) by the USFDA, when used in accordance with the feed additive regulation, and as a good manufacturing or feeding practice. As a feed additive, propionic acid is majorly used as a dietary supplement and as a source of nutrition. Propionic acid is also used in the ensiling process for poultry feed, as it improves silage production and provides aerobic stability in silages.

The feed acidifiers market, by compound, has been segmented into blended compound acidifiers and single compound acidifiers. The blended segment is estimated to dominate the market in 2018 and is projected to grow at a higher CAGR by 2023. The use of these blended acidifier compounds is a new market development, with single compound acidifiers still being used widely.

However, their usage has increased significantly over the years, making it the more prominent one among both. Blended acidifier compounds help reduce the presence of harmful microorganisms in feed, in addition to promoting beneficial microbial growth in the gut. Conversely, the addition of antibiotics inhibits the growth of any microorganisms, even if they are beneficial to the livestock.

The feed acidifiers market, by form, has been segmented into liquid and dry. It was dominated by the dry segment in 2018. Most companies in the feed acidifiers market offer their products in the dry form, due to its ease of usage, storage, and transportability. These products are widely used in feed formulations due to their free-flowing structure and their ability to provide consistency.

The global market for feed acidifiers is dominated by large-scale players such as BASF SE (Germany), Yara International ASA (Norway), Kemin Industries Inc. (US), Kemira OYJ (Finland), and Biomin Holding GmbH (Austria).

Impextraco NV (Belgium), Pancosma (Switzerland), Nutrex NV (Belgium), Perstorp Holding Ab (Sweden), Novus International (US), Jefo Nutrition Inc. (Canada), Anpario plc (UK), Corbion Purac (Netherlands), ADDCON Group (Germany), and Peterlabs holding (Malaysia) are other players that hold a significant share of the feed acidifiers market.
