Feed Phytogenics market size is estimated to surpass 75 kilo tons by 2024, at a CAGR of around 3% over the period of 2018-2024. Growing consumer preference towards natural growth promoters coupled with increasing meat consumption rates are factors likely to drive the industry growth over the coming eight years. Phytogenics are feed additives used in livestock production. They belong to the group of natural growth promoters or non-antibiotic growth promoters derived from spices, herbs, etc.
Global meat production accounted for approximately 310 million tons in 2014, and is estimated to grow annually by 2%, which will positively impact Phytogenics industry size.
