Global Feed Prebiotics Market Worth USD$ 518.6 Million by 2020 - Key Players are Beghin Meiji, Behn Meyer & Royal Cosun - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Feed Prebiotics Market - Growth, Trends And Forecasts (2015-2020)" report to their offering.

Global Prebiotics market valued at over USD 282 million in 2015 and is expected to reach USD 518.6 million by 2020 growing at a CAGR of 12.9%. Prebiotics are non-digestible food ingredients that beneficially affect the host by selectively stimulating the growth and activity of one or a limited number of bacteria in the colon.

Prebiotics primarily prevent disease among the livestock. Prebiotics have also been shown to stimulate the immune system of host animals improving animal health. The main advantage of prebiotics is that they can be added to animal feed without losing efficacy during the heat treatment of feed processing.

Recent outbreaks of food-borne diseases highlight the need for reducing bacterial pathogens in foods of animal origin. Also the risk of developing cross-resistance and multiple antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria in both humans and livestock, the subsequent limitation and ban on antibiotics have fuelled the market for prebiotics. Key companies have been looking for alternative methods to prevent pathogen colonization since the ban on AGPs.

Europe is the largest and fastest growing market. The growing trend is observed among all the segments of the livestock with poultry being just ahead for ruminant and swine in market share. The market is estimated to cross half a billion dollars in terms of market revenue by 2020.
