Feed pigment is an important ingredient that is combined with the basic feed mix to provide color to the feed. This helps in improving the feed intake and consequently increases the weight of the animals. A variety of feed pigments are available and they are used in different concentrations depending upon the type of animals. The type of feed pigment that is mostly used in feeds of animals is carotenoid.
Asia-Pacific and North America are two of the largest consumers of feed pigments. Growth is particularly high in emerging markets such as China, India, and Japan, because of industrialization and rising meat production. U.S. is the largest market in North America.
The animal feed pigment market is growing steadily due to the increase in meat consumption. The demand-driving factors are the increasing mass production of meat, industrialization of meat production, and increasing demand for nutrition-rich meat products. The restraining factors are the rising cost of raw materials and health hazards of feed pigment. However,adopting new technologies for the manufacture of feed pigments helps in cost reduction.
Key participants in the global feed pigment market are The PHW Group (Germany), Synthite Industries (India), BASF SE (Germany), Novus International (U.S.) and Royal DSM NV (The Netherlands).
