The Vietnam animal feed additives market size was valued at USD 725.8 million in 2023 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.4% from 2024 to 2030. This is attributed to the increasing poultry consumption in the country aided by changing lifestyles as well as growth of the processed food sector. Vietnam also has a huge market for pork as it forms an essential part of staple diet in the country. Hence, the increasing demand for poultry products and the shift in meat consumption patterns provide opportunities for market participants to develop and supply additives for poultry sector.
The increasing demand for animal protein and meat products is a key driver in the Vietnamese market. As the country's population continues to grow and incomes rise, there is a higher demand for animal protein sources such as poultry, pork, and aquaculture. This demand is driven by various factors such as urbanization, changing dietary preferences, and a growing middle class.
Vietnam’s increasing focus on animal health and welfare is a key factor in the growth of animal feed additives in the market. Consumers have steadily become conscious about the quality and safety of animal based products, leading to a growing demand for naturally sourced, safe, and sustainable additives.This has led to stricter regulations and guidelines on antibiotic usage in livestock production. As a result, there is an increasing demand for alternatives to antibiotics, such as probiotics, prebiotics, essential oils, and organic acids, which promote gut health, improve immunity, and reduce the need for antimicrobials in feed.
Technological advancements and innovation have been key in driving Vietnam’s animal feed additives sector. Technologies such as encapsulation allows the controlled release of active ingredients, improving their efficiency. Encapsulated enzymes and probiotics can withstand the harsh conditions of the digestive system and deliver their benefits to the gut, improving nutrient utilization and gut health.
The Vietnam animal feed additives market is considerably consolidated in nature, with key players such as BASF SE, Cargill, Incorporated, and dsm-firmenich are dominating the industry. This consolidation is driven by participation of larger companies with greater financial resources and economies of scale have a competitive advantage in terms of product development, quality control, and cost efficiency. For instance, Cargill, Incorporated, a multinational corporation with a strong presence in the Vietnamese animal nutrition industry. Cargill’s extensive resources and global reach enable them to develop innovative additives and provide comprehensive solutions to meet the evolving demands of the market.
The distribution of feed additives involves establishing strong relationships with feed manufacturers, livestock producers, and other stakeholders in the value chain. Key players in the market have well-established distribution networks and long-standing relationships with customers. These relationships and distribution capabilities create barriers to entry for new players and contribute to the market concentration. For instance, a multinational conglomerate with a significant presence in the agribusiness sector. Charoen Pokphand Foods PCL's extensive distribution network and strong relationships with farmers and manufacturers enable them to maintain a dominant position in the market.
The animal feed industry is subject to stringent regulations and quality standards to ensure the safety and efficacy of additives. For instance, the Circular 21/2019/TT-BNNPTNT, issued by the Vietnamese government, provides guidance on various aspects of animal feed. It covers topics such as production, labeling, quality control, and safety standards. Newer laws like Animal Husbandry Law, introduced in 2018 have banned the use of antimicrobial growth promoters in commercial products, aiming to promote the responsible use of antibiotics in animal production.
Amino Acids dominated the market in 2023. This high percentage can be attributed to them being used as essential building blocks of proteins and play a crucial role in the growth, development, and overall health of animals. Amino acids, such as lysine, methionine, and threonine, are vital for maintaining the health and well-being of animals. They contribute to the development of a strong immune system, improved gut health, and enhanced nutrient utilization. As a result, there is a growing trend of incorporating amino acid-based feed additives in diets to support optimal health and performance.
Vitamins is another major type of animal feed additives required in small quantities for the proper growth, development, and overall health of animals. They are involved in various physiological processes, including energy metabolism, immune function, and reproduction. Vitamins, such as vitamin E and vitamin C, act as antioxidants and contribute to the overall health and well-being of animals. Natural vitamin sources, such as plant extracts or fermentation products, are gaining popularity as they align with consumer preferences for clean and sustainable animal products.
Antibiotics are a class of feed additives used in livestock production to promote growth, prevent diseases, and improve efficiency.They help reduce the incidence of bacterial infections, improve gut health, and enhance overall animal performance. Due to concerns about antimicrobial resistance, the use of antibiotics in animal feed additives is now regulated in many countries, including Vietnam. The industry is also exploring alternatives to antibiotics, such as bacteriophages and essential oils, to maintain animal health and performance while reducing reliance on antibiotics.
The pork/swine livestock dominated the market and accounted for a share of 54.8% in 2023. This is attributable to the traditionally high consumption of pork in Vietnamese staple diet and it continues to grow due to population growth, rising incomes, and changing dietary preferences. The swine industry in Vietnam faces challenges related to disease outbreaks, such as African Swine Fever (ASF). To prevent and control diseases, feed additives are used to boost the immune system and improve the overall health of pigs.
Poultry is an important livestock segment for Vietnam animal feed additives. Poultry meat is considered a relatively affordable and versatile source of animal protein. This growing demand for poultry meat drives the need for effective additives to support the health, growth, and productivity of poultry. Additionally, additives like antioxidants and natural pigments are used to enhance the nutritional value and appearance of poultry products, meeting consumer expectations and preferences.
The cattle segment, although relatively smaller compared to pork and poultry, also contributes to the market in Vietnam. Vietnam has been transitioning from traditional extensive cattle farming to more intensive systems, driven by increasing demand for beef and dairy products. Intensive cattle farming requires the use of feed additives to optimize nutrition, enhance growth, and improve feed efficiency. Additives like rumen modifiers, growth promoters, and mineral supplements are commonly used to support the health and productivity of cattle.
Some of the key players operating in the market include Charoen Pokphand Foods PCL, Cargill, Incorporated, and dsm-firmenich.
