DUBLIN, IRELAND -- (Marketwired) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/pcfv3d/eubiotics_market) has announced the addition of the "Eubiotics Market by Type, Livestock & Geography - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2019" report to their offering.
The eubiotics market in feed has been growing at a steady rate in the last few years. The ban in the U.S. and Europe on the use of antibiotics as growth promoters is fuelling the eubiotic market. Eubiotics are considered good for the gut health of the digestive tract in animals and are also a good substitute to antibiotics in feed. The market is not only growing in the U.S. and Europe, it is also growing in developing economies such as China, India, and Brazil.
In connection with the global demand for safe human food and the production of eco-friendly aqua culture products, acidifiers are the natural organic acids and salts that have received considerable attention as animal feed additives. Research has indicated the promising potential of acidifiers in fish diets and provides enough evidence to encourage aqua feed manufacturers to consider using such additives. The dietary inclusion of organic acids has a eubiotic effect on the proliferation of indigenous lactic acid bacteria, which play a prominent role in the activation of the immune response against diseases.
Poultry feed dominates the eubiotic market owing mainly to the large number of population consuming poultry meat in the world. Swine feed is growing at the highest CAGR from 2014 to 2019, owing mainly to the high demand of pork. By geography, Europe dominated the eubiotics market followed by North America.
The eubiotics market has been the major beneficiary in the latest trend of increasing the number of bans on the usage of growth-promoting antibiotics in animals. The prohibitions on antibiotics have led to the increasing use of probiotics, prebiotics, essential oils, and organic acids as alternatives, in the major parts of the world. In 2006, the European Union was the first to impose a ban on usage of antibiotics, for promoting growth in animals. Eubiotic help to regulate the microbial flora within the livestock and also play an important role in their health and well-being by maintaining the required balance of eubiosis in the gastrointestinal tract. A balanced eubiosis also improves the nutrient absorption in the livestock. However, various factors restrict the applicability and market feasibility of these products. Studies with respect to the various probiotic strains and prebiotics, benefits of the feed organic acids, characteristics, product compatibility, and scientific basis for the claimed health benefits are factors that will further influence the success and adoption of eubiotic in the market.
Some of the major players in the global eubiotics market are Royal DSM (The Netherlands), BASF SE (Germany), Cargill Incorporated (U.S.), Yara International ASA (Norway), E.I. DuPont (U.S.), and others. These companies provide an extensive range of products, which offer specialized benefits to animals including swine, poultry, ruminant, and the aqua species.
