U.S. yeast extract for animal feed market size, by application, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

Major market players dominate with a strong presence throughout the entire value chain. These players have the advantage of acquiring raw materials necessary for manufacturing the final product from a single source, thus sustaining the economies of scale to the finest level. The value chain of the market consists of feedstock providers, product manufacturers, distributors, and end-users. The key raw material suppliers include manufacturers of sugar. Molasses can be procured from sugar mills. Companies that are mostly involved in similar business operations are forward integrated for manufacturing yeast extract to reduce their operating costs. Yeast extract is an eco-friendly method to moderate the exposure of animals to mycotoxins, such as zearalenone, aflatoxins, avocados, fumonisins, and others. Mycotoxins are metabolites of molds of Aspergillus, Penicillin, and fungi, which can contaminate food products and, in turn, have adverse effects on animal health and function, such as decreased milk production, increased free radical production, morality, reduced feed intake, and other diseases. Increasing concerns regarding the harmful effects of chemical-based feed on animal health have propelled the use of bio-based raw materials to manufacture and produce animal feed. The animal feed companies have shifted focus towards the development of biodegradable products using bio-based raw materials to enhance animal growth and gut health.

Application Insights

The poultry application segment dominated the market with a revenue share of more than 39.5% in 2021 and is projected to expand further at the fastest growth rate during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for broiler meat globally. Broiler meat is a good source of protein, minerals, and vitamins, and supports muscle building along with strengthening of bones. The consumption is expected to increase due to the mentioned benefits. The swine segment accounted for the second-largest revenue share in 2021 due to a rise in the consumption of and demand for swine meat.

β-glucan is one of the key pre-biotics obtained from Saccharomyces cerevisiae. β-glucan has been known to aid growth performance and health in swine. It is beneficial by modulating immunity and through the absorption of mycotoxin, which improves the health of pigs. The presence of β-glucan from Saccharomyces cerevisiae can prevent Enterotoxigenic Escherichia Coli (ETEC) infection in swine. Pork is the second-largest consumed meat across the globe. However, flu-related pandemics, such as swine flu, can impact its consumption in the future, which is anticipated to restrain the product demand in the long run.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific dominated the market with a revenue share of more than 31.00% in 2021. This is attributed to the increasing production of livestock products in the region due to various factors, such as dietary changes, population growth, and rapid urbanization. Asia Pacific is one of the major pig-breeding regions and thus, requires a high quantity of animal feed. China has the largest live pig population in the world accounting for 415.9 million pigs. In recent years, China’s livestock industry has grown rapidly as the diets have shifted toward animal proteins. China is one of the prominent manufacturers of animal feed and livestock products owing to which, the feed production for sheep, aquaculture, egg-laying poultry, and cattle has increased rapidly.
