Among the animal segment, the feed antioxidants market was dominated by poultry in 2018. In poultry production, one of the major factors for feed is the cost, hence reducing feed costs per bird is a priority. Poultry production has to be efficient as feed has to be converted into meat and eggs. Feed costs can be reduced by adding feed additives such as enzymes and antioxidants, which increase digestibility and prevent the loss of nutrients, with the result that the poultry gains more nutritional value from the same amount of feed. Companies such as Cargill, Koninklijke DSM N.V., and Kemin provide feed antioxidants such as carotenoids, tocopherols, synthetic antioxidants and citric acid, BHT, butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), and tocopheryl acetate for the poultry industry. BHT, BHA, and ethoxyquin are the most commonly used feed antioxidants for poultry.
The dry form dominated the feed antioxidants market in 2018. It experiences a higher demand among feed manufacturers, as it is easy to mix with feed, easy to store, and convenient to handle. Additionally, dry antioxidants such as powders, granules, and beadlets are more economical as compared to liquid alternatives.
The powder form of feed antioxidants dominated the dry feed antioxidants market. Powders witness higher demand as they are convenient to coat over the feed. In addition, as the size of the powder form is consistent, it helps to be coated on the feed easily. Antioxidants such as carotenoids, ethoxyquin, BHT, BHA, and TBHQ are available in this form. These antioxidants are preferred as they are also easy to use in combination with other feed antioxidants.
