Animal Intestinal Health Market by Additive (Prebiotics, Probiotics, Phytogenic, and Immunostimulants), By Livestock (Poultry, Swine, Ruminant, and Aquaculture), By Form (Dry and Liquid) By Region: Global Market Size Estimates and Forecast (2022-2030)

Code: BMIRE00026438 | Pages: 100 | Industry: Biotechnology | Date: Sep 2022 | Type: Global

The market crossed the US$ 3.67 billion mark in 2022 and is expected to hit US$ 6.31 billion by 2030, recording a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period.

The Probiotics segment has shown significant growth due to its rising awareness and importance

Probiotics are a significant fraction of the feed supplements used in the livestock industry. Probiotics are the microbial feed supplements that show the host's health benefits. In October 2021, the article published in the Journal of Basic and Applied Zoology discussed the downsides of using antibiotics to prevent animal diseases and how probiotics can replace antibiotics owing to their advantages. Probiotics are beneficial for improving the health and growth of livestock and fish. Similarly, in April 2021, another article was published in BioMed Central (BMC) Zoology, concluding that probiotics help increase the speed of digestion in animals. The report proposed that probiotics enhance broilers' cecal microorganism constitution and nutrient digestion. A searching study published in the journal of Aquaculture in 2021 studied the effects of probiotics on the fish Tilapia. It concluded that they are vital in nutrient utilization and growth performance.

The report segments the market into additive, livestock, and form. By additive, it is segmented into probiotics, prebiotics, phytogenics, and immunostimulant. The livestock market is segmented into poultry, swine, ruminant, and aquaculture. By form, market segmentation is dry and liquid. Geographically, the market is sub-segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central  America, and Middle East & Africa.

Rising awareness about animal gut health will propel the market

Animal Intestinal Health is crucial in determining the animal's overall health. The effective functioning of the alimentary canal  (GIT) corresponds to proper absorption and nutrient digestion. In May 2020, The Pennsylvania State University published an article on Gut Health in Cattle, describing gut health as how proficiently the nutrients from the feed are absorbed and how well pathogens are accommodated within the digestive tract. A piece of writing presented in Frontiers in Veterinary Science in January 2022 describes gut health as physiological and functional factors, including nutrient digestion and absorption, a stable and applicable microbiota/microbiome, defense mechanisms of host metabolism and energy generation, and, therefore, the interactions between above factors. The article also suggests that good intestinal health will contribute to the creation of the intestinal epithelial barrier, host system development,  and stop the harmful propagation of pathogenic bacteria. Rising awareness about animal gut health and increasing technological development will propel the market.

Growing application of animal health ingredients in feed products  to strengthen   livestock production and eventually improve animal protein quality

The increase in population, income, and urbanization are the key factors contributing to the livestock sector's unprecedented growth. The increased consumption of food products like meat, eggs, and milk, has increased. As demand is anticipated to grow, the increased production demand for healthy and nutritious poultry meat will drive market growth. The heightened awareness among consumers about the health benefits linked with the consumption of animal protein,  like improved bone health, immunity, and reduction in protein deficiencies,  is also one of the factors due to which the demand for livestock products remains high. The need for livestock products has led stakeholders to feed additives such as probiotics, prebiotics, and phytogenics to enhance animal health. For example, digestive disorders like stomach ulcers, swine dysentery, and transmissible gastroenteritis, among others, are common in pigs. To avoid these orders and ensure effective animal health, feed additives such as phytogenics are used in pigs.

Recent strategic developments in the animal intestinal health market

The animal intestinal health  market has undergone several significant consequences, and a few of these have been mentioned below:

  • In May 2021, CHR Hansen developed a replacement product using two strains of different species of Bacilli, i.e., Bacillus licheniformis and Bacillus subtilis, isolated from nature to support gut health in ruminants


  • In November 2020, Evonik's Animal Nutrition line launched Ecobiol Fizz, the primary probiotic for chicken in effervescent tablet form. The merchandise contains a microbial strain of the species Bacillus amyloliquefaciens, which will balance the intestinal microbial of chickens reared for laying eggs, particularly during stressful periods like breeding

  • In September 2020, ADM Animal Nutrition launched Forage First GS, nutritional support for gastrointestinal health. Its unique combination of ingredients supports a healthy gastric pH while protecting and nourishing the stomach lining of the horses

  • In January 2020, Kemin Industries launched a phytogenic feed additive that is an addition to a great line of poultry gut health solutions from Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health, North America. It's a proprietary formulation of natural, gut-health-fortifying ingredients designed as an economical solution for producers to minimize the impact of challenges, like enteric diseases, on poultry performance
