Feed Pigments Market Overview

Feed pigments are used in order to enhance the colour of products such as eggs, meat and milk. The main drivers for this industry include increased meat production demand, higher disposable incomes, a move towards pellet feed consumption as well as increased consumer knowledge on animal health. Outbreaks of animal diseases including African swine fever virus, foot and mouth disease and mad cow disease have increased consumer consciousness about the value of healthy livestock. Mammalian biological manufacturers' animal culture characteristics are less studied than those of avian species.


As the emerging economies clock in growth, income is per capita grows alongside urbanization as well as dietary changes. These forces contribute to an increase in the need for high-quality animal feeds thereby expanding the industry. Previously noted is constrained animal treatment and food security measures enforcement that has made manufacturers switch to organic and long-term sustainable feed pigments approaches meant to expand the market.
