Key Market Trends
Growing Incorporation In Animal Feed
Fermentation is a unique process that will improve the nutritional value of feed ingredients. Fermentation reduces the presence of exoskeletal chitin in feed, anti-nutritional factors, and fiber in plant-based feed ingredients thus improves their nutritive value. Further bacterial fermentation holds promise for growth enhancement and immunostimulants in aquaculture.
Fermentation also increases the availability of certain vitamins viz., riboflavin, cyanocobalamin, thiamine, niacin, B6, B12, and folic acid levels in some feed ingredients. Feeding fermented products has been commonly practiced majorly in the pig nutrition arena for many years. However, there is an increasing interest in incorporating fermented feed into broiler poultry to take advantage of its positive influences particularly on gut health and production parameters.
Brazil Dominates The Market
Fortification of vegetable and fruit juices for functional benefits is aimed at decreasing carbohydrates levels and increasing beneficial enzymes, various strains of probiotics, and friendly bacteria that help in breaking down food into a more digestive form. This is directly enhancing the growth of fermented ingredients in the country. The growing food and beverage industry in Brazil is driving the demand for functional beverages in the market. The changing lifestyle of the consumers is expected to drive the fermented ingredients market in Brazil. With the growth in animal husbandry and integrated farming there is a demand for animal feeds that are more beneficial than the conventional ones on the country.
South America fermented ingredients market is competitive with various regional and global players in the market such as Evonik Industries AG, Novozymes A/S, BASF SE, Kerry Group plc, Döhler, etc. Companies are actively expanding their product bases and are increasing production capacities to meet the demand for applications that are emerging from the food and beverage sector.
