The report points out that rise in meat consumption worldwide has boosted the growth of the global animal feed antioxidants market. The increasing incidence of disease outbreaks among livestock has fuelled the demand for feed antioxidants. However, difficulties in working with natural antioxidants, along with stringent government regulatory structure and intervention will hinder the growth of the market during the forecast horizon. The global animal feed antioxidants market has a huge opportunity to grow with the increasing preference for synthetic antioxidants over natural antioxidants. The growing trend of blending different antioxidants is expected to reduce costs of animal feed antioxidants significantly.   

In terms of product type, the report categorizes the global animal feed antioxidants market into natural and synthetic feed antioxidants. Synthetic feed antioxidants have been further divided into ethoxyquin, butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT), and butylated hydroxy anisole (BHA). While natural antioxidants are formulated using natural raw materials such as rapeseeds, corn, and oilseeds that are mixed with grains such as soya, synthetic animal feed antioxidants are made up of pure substances that have constant compositions.  

On the basis of livestock, the report segments the global animal feed antioxidants market into poultry, pork/ swine, aquaculture, and cattle. In 2011, the poultry segment accounted for a share of 33.95% in the market while the pork/ swine segment held 27.6% of the market.
