Amino acids are the most widely used type of feed additives globally. Poultry and swine have been the two major segments accounting for a significant proportion of the animal feed additives market owing to the rising meat demand from these segments. With an improved economy, the demand for consumption of animal products has shown a rapid increase throughout Asia thus creating a greater demand for feed additives in the region. This rapid increase in the demand for animal products together with changes in the international trade has led to a great expansion of meat industry in Asia particularly in countries such as China, India, Vietnam and others. Additionally output of other animal products such as eggs and milk has also grown significantly in the region. Emergence of new diseases has led to reduced livestock performance in the past which affected the animal products industry significantly by reducing the performance, health and output. In order to reduce such adverse affects, more number of farmers in the region started adding feed supplements along with the feed, giving a rise to the revenues from the feed supplements in the region. Usage of feed additives also results in decreased pollution of land and ground water originating from the livestock.

This would continue to boost the revenues derived from the Chinese animal feed additives market. However, a significant decline would be observed in the contribution of China with increasing share of other countries such as Australia, India and New Zealand which are still in the growth stages. Rising affluent middle class in the emerging economies would result in increasing demand of good quality meat consumption and thereby boost the demand for feed supplements.
