DUBLIN, December 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/kncfhp/china_feed) has announced the addition of the "China Feed Additives Industry Report, 2012-2015" report to their offering.
Feed additives as upstream products of the feed industry refer to small (trace) amounts of nutritive or non-nutritive substances or drugs added to feed for specific needs; Its main role is to increase nutrient concentration and efficiency of feed utilization, promote livestock growth, prevent and cure diseases as well as reduce the loss of nutrients in feed.
In China, following the sustained and stable growth of feed industry, the feed additives industry has also made considerable progress. So far, there have been over 220 types of approved additives, including nearly 70 domestic types with standards, 57 types of allowed medicated additives. In 2011-2012, China's additive premix remained between 6.1-6.4 million tons. By type, amino acids, vitamins, medicated additives and biological enzymes account for a high proportion of the feed additives market, up to 80% and more.
With respect to the amino acid feed additives segment, as China gives priority to pig and poultry breeding, coupled with restricted level of feeding, the actual consumption structure of feed amino acids is oriented by methionine and lysine. In 2012, China's lysine production and consumption were 855,000 tons and 610,000 tons, respectively, showing obvious overcapacity and fierce market competition. But limited by technical barriers, only one local enterprise - Chongqing Unisplendour Chemical Co., Ltd. had realized methionine industrialization by the end of 2012. In 2012, China consumed 194,000 tons of methionine, including imports of 183,000 tons.
Seen from the vitamin feed additives segment, China has become an important global feed vitamin producing and consuming country.
