Global Silage Inoculants & Enzymes Market - 2021-2028
The global silage inoculants & enzymes market size was valued US$ XX billion in 2019 and is estimated to reach US$ XX billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX % during the forecast period (2021-2028).
Silage inoculants consist of bacteria that control the silage process and support better crop preservation. Enzymes are commonly used as an ingredient in silage inoculants or occasionally used alone as a silage additive.
The silage inoculants & enzymes market growth is driven by the increasing feed grain and compound feed prices, rising livestock population, decreasing grazing and pasture land area, and increasing demand for livestock production are boosting the market globally.
Increasing demand for livestock production, is expected to drive the global silage inoculants & enzymes market growth
Silage inoculants & enzymes contain valuable nutrients which animals use to produce milk or meat. It's important to retain them. The type and number of acid-producing bacteria present in the pasture or crop will influence the amount of dry matter and nutrients it loses in the ensiling process. Silage inoculants & enzymes provides the right bacteria in superior numbers for a fast, efficient fermentation. They help lock in nutrients and dry matter to produce more milk or meat from every ton of pasture or crop it can ensile.
Lack of awareness of the benefits of silage is likely to hamper the market growth
Unawareness of the consumers about the benefits of silage, like a good quality of silage inoculants, helps in efficient and faster fermentation. It results in minimum energy loss, low dry matter waste, and improved animal performance may hinder the market growth.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
Following the COVID-19 outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries globally, and the World Health Organization has declared it a public health emergency. According to the World Health Organization's report, the coronavirus (COVID-19) manifestation has resulted in more than 52.7 million infected individuals worldwide as of November 13, 2020.
Increasing speculation among consumers over COVID-19 risk arising from the consumption of animal-based products is expected to influence the market growth. COVID 19 outbreak has led to the imposition of the shutdown of manufacturing units; such measures have led to supply chain disruption across the globe. This has affected raw materials supply for silage inoculants & enzymes negatively. This factor has increased its price further for a short period.
The homofermentative segment is expected to hold largest share in this market segment
The homofermentative inoculant type is the most common inoculant on the market. Initially, the main goal of using these inoculants was to preserve the quality of the ensiled plants as near to the original levels as possible. Homofermentative bacteria accomplish this goal by decreasing pH, reducing dry matter losses to a minimal level (2-3%), reducing proteolysis (the breakdown of protein) and ammonia formation, and increasing lactic acid and dry matter. A fast decline in pH can also inhibit clostridial bacteria that produce butyric acid, a product of a bad fermentation that causes malodor. Moreover, homofermentative bacteria have the potential to improve animal performance. When the inoculated silage produced a positive effect, the average increase in weight gain was expected to be 5%, while milk production increased 3%. The cause of this performance improvement is not clear.
The lactobacillus species segment is expected to hold largest share in this market segment
Lactobacillus Species holds the largest share in the silage inoculants & enzymes market. There are many lactobacillus species and are friendly bacteria that normally live in the digestive, urinary, and genital systems without causing disease. Lactobacillus is also in some fermented foods like yogurt and dietary supplements. Moreover, it is most commonly taken by mouth to treat and prevent diarrhea, including infectious diarrhea and diarrhea linked with using antibiotics. Some people also take lactobacillus by mouth for general digestion problems, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), colic in babies, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), inflammation of the colon, stomach pain, constipation, and many other conditions. However, there is no good scientific evidence to support many of these uses. It can help break down food, absorb nutrients, and fight off unfriendly organisms that might cause diarrhea. These factors will boost the growth of the lactobacillus market in the forecast period.
The corn segment is expected to hold largest share in this market segment
The corn segment held the largest share in the silage inoculants & enzymes market. Since corn crop is grown in almost all countries, the global demand for silage inoculants & enzymes high for them. Total corn production has been increasing rapidly globally, and with the growth in cereal production and consumption, it has become more important for producers to focus highly on its yield and quality by using various effective silage inoculants & enzymes. Corn silage has a more sugar content and lowers buffering capacity, allowing an easier fermentation with higher lactic acid, lower acidic acid and lower ph, and it is more difficult to improve the fermentation of corn silage. The corn plants standing in the field at harvest time are covered in naturally occurring lactic acid-producing bacteria, making it more difficult for a commercial inoculant to dominate the fermentation. A benefit of commercial silage inoculants & enzymes inoculants in corn silage is more likely in the immature corn, overly dry corn and also the day after a killing frost. In addition, corn silage inoculants containing both Lactobacillus buchneri are different in that they are heterofermentative. They produce lactic acid earlier in the fermentation to decrease fermentation losses, then acetic acid later in the fermentation to increase aerobic stability to stay fresher longer in the feed bunk. The silage inoculants & enzymes reduce the growth of yeasts and make the silage more resistant to spoilage and heating at feed out and improve silage bunk life. This factor will fuel the growth of the silage inoculants & enzymes market in the forecast period.
North America region holds the largest market share of global silage inoculants & enzymes market
North America region is dominating the silage inoculants & enzymes market, followed by Europe and APAC. The economy of North America is mainly influenced by the economic dynamics of countries such as the US and Canada, but with growing foreign direct investment for the economic development of North America, the current scenario is changing. Countries in North America are witnessing high growth in the agricultural sector. North America produces and sells a wide variety of agricultural products across the world. In terms of sales value, the US leads the region as the largest producer of agricultural products, accounting for almost 11 percent of the national total, based on the 2012 Census of Agriculture.
The global silage inoculants & enzymes market is highly competitive with presence of global companies. Some of the key players which are contributing to the growth of the market include ADDCON GROUP GmbH, E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company, Archer Daniels Midland Company, Kemin Industries, Chr. Hansen A/S, Volac International Ltd, Agri-King Inc, Biomin Holding GmbH, Lallemand Inc, and Schamann BioEnergy GmbH. The major players are adopting several growth strategies such as product launches, acquisitions, and collaborations, which are contributing to the growth of the market globally. For instance, in March 2017, Lallemand Animal Nutrition acquired Nova Microbial Technologies, forwarding Lallemand's mission to provide natural microbial products and services for optimized animal performance and well-being. This acquisition creates exciting opportunities for Lallemand Animal Nutrition and Nova customers and more importantly the livestock industries we serve.
