The Global "Feed Mycotoxin Binders and Modifiers Market" is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecasting period (2022-2029).
Mycotoxin is an organic or synthetic substance added to animal feed in small quantities to trap mycotoxins and prevent them from entering the bloodstream of livestock. The most commonly used binder materials as a mycotoxin binder in livestock include silicates, clay, yeast, and charcoal. Mycotoxin binder improves growth rate in pigs associated with reduction of toll-like receptors and improves gut health. On the other hand, mycotoxin modifiers aim to alter the chemical structure and subsequently reduce toxicity. Mycotoxin modifiers are generally of microbiological origin comprised of whole cultures of bacteria or yeasts, as well as specifically extracted components, such as enzymes.
Fungi growth in animal feed will reduce their nutritional value and increase the risk of mycotoxins, henceforth in order to control the mycotoxin growth, mycotoxin binders and modifiers have to be used. According to the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), about 25% of feed globally is critically contaminated, leading to economic losses due to reduced animal health and eventual loss of productivity for the farming industry. Therefore, the use of mycotoxin binders and modifiers is of utmost importance in order to avoid curbing these losses. Owing to their need, moving forward this segment will likely to showcases consistent growth. Growing livestock production across the globe associated with increased spending by the livestock producers in a healthy diet are additionally contributing to the growth of mycotoxin binders and modifiers globally. Moreover, growing consumer awareness regarding fungi growth in stored feed and its negative impact on animal health are fueling the growth of sales of mycotoxin binders and modifiers across the globe.
However, growing stringent regulations imposed over the usage of mycotoxin binders and modifiers in the feed is the major factor hindering the growth of feed mycotoxin binders and modifiers globally.
Global feed mycotoxin binders and modifiers market is segmented on the basis of product into mycotoxin binders and mycotoxin modifiers. The mycotoxin modifiers are further segmented into clay, bentonite, and others.
The most recognized approach to detoxify mycotoxins is through the use of binders. This involves the use of nutritionally inert adsorbents with the capacity to bind and immobilize mycotoxins in the gastrointestinal tract of animals, thereby reducing their bioavailability. Mycotoxin binders are used widely as they are cheaper and are commercialized on a large scale, making them comparatively easy to procure. Furthermore, these have a longer shelf life and does not get affected by different climatic conditions, making them safe for use in all climatic conditions.
By region, the global feed mycotoxin binders and modifiers market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East and Africa.
India feed mycotoxin binders and modifiers market is expected to grow at a higher pace during the forecast period owing to growing production of livestock across the region and high dependency of the population over the livestock and its derivates. Growing adoption of advancements to feed additives and other health-related products to maintain feed quality and health maintenance of heard are additionally contributing to the growth of feed mycotoxin binders and modifiers market across India. Mycotoxin management in poultry is crucial. Mycotoxins can directly affect the productivity and the performance of the birds. Poultry is a fast-growing livestock industry in India, this country is highly focused on the development of good food, better health & living standards for the citizens. With the increase in incomes, people can now afford better nutrition, and hence, for the last two decades, the demand for eggs and chicken is growing. The government initiative towards promoting daily egg consumption has showcased better egg consumption in the country. Therefore, the growth in the poultry sector will likely to attribute to the growth of poultry feed protectors such as mycotoxin binders.
The major players in the global feed mycotoxin binders and modifiers market are focusing on improving global presence through the acquisition of regional companies and their production plants. This market is also experiencing new product launches with innovative formulations and higher efficiency to attract a wide range of customers across the globe.
Some of the key players in the global feed mycotoxin binders and modifiers market include Cargill, Incorporated, Kemin Industries Inc, Alltech Nutrition, Bentoli, Inc., and BASF SE.
