The increasing demand for animal products, such as meat and milk are the key reasons for the growth of the global organic trace minerals market. The increasing number of animals and growing trade of meat and dairy products are expected to drive the growth of global the organic trace minerals market during the forecast period. The production from animals is largely dependent on the type of feed they consume. Zinc dominates the market among products, followed by iron.
As defined by Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO), organic trace minerals can be categorized as metal complexes, metal amino acid complexes, metal amino acid chelates, metal proteinates metal polysaccharide complexes, metal propionates, and yeast derivative complexes.
The organic trace minerals are used with animal feed in small quantities; however they play an important role in the maintenance of health and productivity of animals. Apart from organic sources, trace minerals also manufactured inorganically. The prevalent inorganic sources of trace minerals include common sulphates, chlorides, oxides, and carbonates. The organic trace minerals are formed by the attachment of inorganic minerals with organic molecules, such as amino acids and polysaccharides.
Organic trace minerals enhance gut absorption in animals, and improve bioavailability in animal feed. The inorganic trace minerals on the other hand, may interact with fiber, phytate, tannin, silicate, oxalate or other minerals in the gastro-intestinal tract of animals, and may cause trouble in feed absorption. This is leading to the shift in buying process of trace minerals from inorganic towards organic form, by the animal farm owners.
The increasing iron deficiency among poultry and ruminants is expected to drive the growth of the iron segment in the global organic trace mineral market during the forecast period. Manganese and copper boosts immunity of the animals. The other types include selenium and cobalt. The sales of organic trace mineral also largely depend upon the advice of veterinarians to the animal farm owners. The consolidating animal farms further increase the importance of veterinary prescription for organic trace mineral products, as they play a significant role in volume sales of such products.
The key companies operating in the global organic trace minerals market include Royal DSM NV, Tanke Biosciences Corporation, Zinpro Corporation, Cargill and Kemin Industries.
