Specialty Feed Additives Market to Reach US$ 20.5 Billion at a CAGR of 5.2% by 2033

logo. 1

Worldwide demand for specialty feed additives market is projected to increase at 5.2% CAGR From 2023 to 2033. Currently, the global specialty feed additives market enjoys a valuation of US$ 12.3 billion and is expected to reach US$ 20.5 billion by the end of 2033.

On the other hand, through 2033, it is projected that shifting regulatory criteria for the usage of various feed ingredients and the high manufacturing costs of specialised feed additives will restrain market growth overall. For instance, the use of antibiotic growth promoters in animal feed has been outlawed in several nations due to the development of zoonotic infections caused by their excessive use, which resulted in animal drug resistance. The food additive industry underwent significant modifications and reforms as a result of this restriction, which also temporarily slowed market growth.
