Report Overview

The global animal feed organic trace minerals market size was valued at USD 709.2 million in 2022 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.6% from 2023 to 2030. The growth is attributed to the increasing demand for animal feed. The rise in the consumption of animal feed-based products has caused a rapid rise in the global demand for organic trace minerals. Trace minerals are essential minerals found in minute amounts in animal feed and are connected with organic molecules, such as polysaccharides and amino acids. Organic trace minerals find applications in various end-use industries, including poultry, dairy cattle, Horses, and pigs.

U.S. Animal Feed Organic Trace Minerals Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

In North America, the U.S. is the dominant market and contributes significantly to global revenue. The U.S. being a developed market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2023 to 2030. The increase in meat consumption is one of the key factors driving the market. The market in the country is expected to grow at a significant rate due to a shift in food consumption patterns and the preference for animal protein consumption, especially broilers, and turkeys.

Application Insights

The poultry application dominated with a revenue share of 44.9% in 2022. This is attributable to the growing consumption of meat such as chicken, eggs, and turkey across the globe. Growing demand for animal protein sources has driven the market for poultry over the years.

Growing market in countries such as China and the U.S. has played a key role in this revival. This has driven the demand for animal feed and hence, organic trace minerals. Animal feed organic trace minerals are used for dairy cattle, poultry, Horses, pigs, and other animals. Other applications include aqua food and pet food.

Pork is the second-highest consumed meat in the world, after poultry. It is considered a rich source of protein. Growing demand for high-quality pork and growing pork consumption have been major drivers of pork feed over the years. Pork is widely consumed in European and Asia Pacific countries as it is also considered an important source of protein.

The outbreak of diseases in this sector is a common phenomenon, which has made the manufacturers and pork processors equally aware of the importance of high-quality feed including trace minerals and other nutrients. Growing demand from countries such as China and the U.S. has played a key role in the growth of the industry in this segment. The product also finds applications in other industries including Horses, pet food, and aquafeed.

Dairy cattle emerged as the third-largest application segment in 2021. Increasing demand for cattle protein will drive the market over the forecast period. New technologies and systematic supply chain management have driven the global dairy business. Increasing demand for milk products such as yogurt, butter, ice cream, and cheese has also supported the growth of the dairy industry.

Product Insights

The zinc segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 33.4% in 2022. This is attributable to its ability to improve the immunity of animals and increases metabolism. Some of the essential minerals included in livestock feed are zinc, copper, iron, selenium, and others including manganese and cobalt. Growing demand for animal fodder globally is expected to drive the market for animal feed organic trace minerals. 

The iron segment accounted for the second-largest revenue share in 2021. Similar to zinc, it is considered one of the essential nutrients in animal feed. Its major functions include the transportation of oxygen in the blood, storage of oxygen in muscles and tissues of animals, and oxidation of nutrients. Iron deficiency results in an imbalance in tissue metabolism and can also lead to anemia. Growing awareness regarding the benefits of this essential micronutrient in animal feed is expected to boost its demand over the forecast period.

Global Animal Feed Organic Trace Minerals Market share and size, 2022

Copper is essential in regulating blood cell functions and maintaining healthy nerve fibers in animals. Besides, it strengthens the bones of animals. However, over-consumption of copper results in toxicity. This has led to the establishment of certain guidelines among governing bodies to restrict the use of copper in livestock food.

Selenium, in its organic Application, is known as selenomethionine, which is used as a trace mineral in the preparation of cattle fodder. Selenium is important in maintaining the fertility of the breeding stock. The deficiency of selenium can result in white muscle disease, which is characterized by heart failure, no weight gain, weakness, and eventually, death. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has regulated this mineral as a feed additive.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific dominated the market with a revenue share of 36.9% in 2022. This is attributable to the presence of lathe number of manufacturers across the region. The region is driven by China, the largest manufacturer of livestock feed in the same year. The considerable demand for organic trace minerals in animal feed stems from the poultry and swine industries. Furthermore, developments in the processing and retailing industries, a rise in poultry consumption per capita, and improving infrastructure have increased the demand for organic trace minerals in poultry farming
