Water Soluble Minerals Market: Overview

  • Water soluble minerals are inorganic elements that are extracted from rocks, water, or soil. Minerals play an important role in growth of the skin, the muscles, and the bones. Human body cannot produce minerals and vitamins by itself as the body extracts these micronutrients from food. Water soluble minerals are also used as feed additives in the production of animal food products.
  • Human body requires at least 30 minerals, vitamins, and other dietary components. The body cannot produce these minerals in sufficient amounts. Minerals are required for building of the bones, regulating of heartbeats, and functioning of the brain.
  • Minerals are inorganic compounds present in soil or water, which cannot be broken down further. Vitamins are organic compounds synthesized from plants and animals, which can be broken down in the presence of heat, acid, or air.

Role of Water Soluble Minerals in Development of Human Body

  • Minerals can be classified into macrominerals and trace minerals. Macrominerals include calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium, potassium, chloride, and sulfur; whereas trace minerals include iron, manganese, copper, iodine, zinc, cobalt, fluoride, and selenium. These are required in lower amounts as compared to macrominerals.
  • A majority of sodium that is consumed is obtained from vegetables, table salt, and unprocessed meat. Potassium is obtained from meat, milk, fresh fruits, and fresh vegetables. Low sodium and high potassium in food can help control hypertension. Also, it lowers chances of developing cardiovascular diseases.
  • Calcium is present in large amounts in dairy products such as milk and cheese. It is also found in tofu, fortified soy milk, greens (such as broccoli and mustard greens), and legumes. Calcium is required for the development of strong bones and teeth, for blood clotting, and for muscle functioning.
  • Chloride is found in table salt (sodium chloride), vegetables such as tomatoes, meat, and bread. In the human body, chloride is found along with sodium in the form of stomach acid, which maintains balance of body fluids.
  • Magnesium is found primarily in nuts, seeds, legumes, leafy and green vegetables, and seafood. Magnesium helps convert food into energy, develop new proteins from amino acids, and repair dioxyribo nucleic acid (DNA) and ribo nucleic acid (RNA).

Asia Pacific Emerges as a Key Regional Segment for Water Soluble Minerals Market

  • With the growing human and animal population in China, India, and countries in ASEAN, the demand for highly nutritious foods is also increasing in poultry, cattle, and aquaculture industries in Asia Pacific. In order to meet the demand for nutritious foods derived from animals, poultry farmers are using a large amount of micronutrient-enriched feed additives, thereby creating demand for water soluble minerals market.
  • High-protein foods such as tofu and eggs are produced in the poultry & cattle industry. Demand for omnivorous diet is rising in countries such as Vietnam, India, Bangladesh, Thailand, and Philippines. This, in turn, is projected to augment the water soluble minerals market in Asia Pacific during the forecast period.

Global Water Soluble Minerals Market, by End-use

  • In terms of end-use industry, the global water soluble minerals market can be segmented into poultry, cattle, aquaculture, and swine. In the poultry industry, trace minerals such as zinc play a significant role as a component of several metalloenzymes, such as carbonic anhydrase. Carbonic anhydrase is essential for eggshell formation in the shell gland of hens. These minerals help in enhancing the immune response of hens. Zinc deficiency in poultry feed additives can lead to poor feathering and poor shell quality. Manganese also plays a key role as a feed additive in chickens by forming chondroitin sulfate. However, deficiency of manganese in poultry leads to perosis, bone shortening, and poor eggshell quality.
  • In swine feed products, water soluble minerals, such as Iodine and selenium, function as an important component of thyroid hormones, thereby affecting the metabolic rate of swine. Iodine deficiency in swine can result in thick pulpy skin, goiter, hairlessness, and even death. Certain swine feedstuffs contain goitrogens, which enhances the iodine requirement.
