DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/g5k695/strategic) has announced the addition of the "Strategic Analysis of the Global Organic Trace Minerals for Animal Feed Applications Market" report to their offering.
Trace minerals are mostly supplemented in inorganic forms due to their availability and lower cost. However, more growth potential is seen with organic trace minerals due to their perceived benefits. Advantages associated with the use of organic trace minerals, such as increased utilisation by animals, are expected to drive demand. However, participants have to ensure price competitiveness as cost is a key restraining factor in this market. The study provides other drivers and restraints, market size and forecasts, and a competitive analysis of major vendors, along with an overview of the end applications and the industry value chain.
Zinc dominates the market. This trend is expected to continue throughout the forecast period, mainly due to requirement levels and the significant roles it plays in the body of animals, including immunity function and enzymes activation.
Developed regions dominate the OTM market, but it is the developing regions that have greater growth potential owing to changing consumption trends, increasing awareness in the region, and willingness to adopt proven ingredients.
Ruminant feed demand dominates the total OTM market, driven by demand for zinc. Zinc is not stored in cattle's body for long; hence, it is continuously required in the adequate quantity in order to avoid deficiency.
OTMs for animal feed applications are expected to experience a steady increase in prices, driven by increasing demand.
Cost is a key restraining factor in this market. As a result, market participants have to continuously ensure and effectively communicate price competitiveness in line with effectiveness and benefits of products. Other key factors include high quality, efficacy, and brand reputation.
