The report “Feed Acidifiers Market by Type (Propionic Acid, Formic Acid, Lactic Acid, Citric Acid, Sorbic Acid, Malic Acid), Form (Dry, Liquid), Compound (Blended, Single), Livestock (Poultry, Swine, Ruminants, Aquaculture), and Region – Global Forecast to 2023″ Over the years, the production pattern in the feed industry has transformed in tandem with the health requirements of livestock. For improved growth and efficiency of livestock, rearers included antibiotics as additives in feed. However, the use of antibiotics as feed additives impacts the health of animals, which, in turn, affects the health of consumers adversely. Due to the adverse effects on the health of consumers, the EU has imposed a ban on the use of antibiotics. This ban has encouraged rearers to opt for cost-effective and health-enriching alternatives such as feed acidifiers. According to MarketsandMarkets, the feed acidifiers market is projected to account for a value of USD 3.5 billion by 2023, recording a CAGR of 5.1%.
