Feed acidifiers have positive effects on livestock health but are often difficult to properly process in feed. Acidifiers tend to lose their efficacy and efficiency, owing to their vulnerability to high temperatures, dusty environment, significant odors, and other volatile properties. As a result, manufacturers are now coming up with newer technologies that help improve feed efficiency by successfully locking in feed acidifiers along with their relevant efficacies and properties. Encapsulation acts as a novel technology for feed products, especially for acidifiers that allow them to improve their release and enteric action and have a longer shelf-life by protecting them against environmental changes, by keeping the liquid, gaseous, or solid acidifier substance packed in a tiny millimetric capsule. These acidifiers are encapsulated in such a manner that the digestive tract obtains small quantities of various acids in a progressive manner. As a result, the amount of acidifiers released into the stomach remains low while the amount reaching the intestinal tract is higher, thereby improving operating efficiency. Along with this protection against extreme environmental factors, encapsulation also maintains the key properties of acidifiers, such as the enhancement of palatability, stability in ration, improved digestion, and better livestock performance.

The Propionic Segment Is Projected To Hold the Largest Share in the Feed Acidifiers Market

As consumers become more sensitive to food safety, rearers are focusing on investing in feed additives that enhance the quality of meat and prevent diseases in livestock. Rearers prefer propionic acid as feed additives as they are a rich source of nutrients and are generally recognized as safe (GRAS) substances by the FDA. Due to their increasing preference in the livestock industry, the propionic segment is projected to account for the largest share in the feed acidifiers market during the forecast period.

To maintain consistency in the application and enhance the nutrient quotient of crops, the dry form of feed acidifiers is utilized extensively. Demand for dry feed acidifiers is preferred as they are convenient to store, transport, and use. Also, the dry form of feed acidifiers can be used efficiently due to their free-flowing structure. Owing to these factors, dry feed acidifiers are projected to outpace the sales of the liquid form during the forecast period.
