Global Feed Phosphate Market
Phosphates are the inorganic salts of the phosphoric acid which is extracted from the phosphate rock. Phosphorous is an essential nutrient for the animals and it helps to maintain, repair, and growth of body tissues. Phosphorous is administered along with the feed in the form of calcium phosphate. The other advantages with feed phosphate include the improvement in the quality of meat products, enhancing the feed digestion, and improvement in the nutritional quality. Feed phosphate also helps in the development of growth in the life cycle stages, fertility development, and improve the bone development. Phosphate is manufactured from the mixture of calcium sulphate or calcium carbonate and phosphoric acid.
The feed phosphate market is growing at a significant CAGR due to increase in adoption of livestock. Increasing meat consumption around the globe, rise in demand for milk and other dairy products, industrialization of meat processing, and rise in the disposable income expected to fuel the feed phosphate market over the forecast period. Moreover, a rise in the government initiation for promoting the animal husbandry, grow in the awareness about animal health, growing research and development activities, and development of livestock during their growth stages might boost the feed phosphate market. However, increase in raw materials cost, global scarcity of the phosphate reserves, stringent regulations for the animal husbandry and rise in demand for alternative products such as phytase might restrain the feed phosphate market growth over the forecast period.
Feed phosphate market is segmented on the basis of phosphate type and species
Based on the phosphate type, feed phosphate market is segmented into the following:
