In addition, various disease outbreaks in livestock animals such as swine flu and foot & mouth diseases in the past decade have led to increased regulations on meat quality and safety which further has prompted the use of feed additives. Raw material and product cost concerns, especially over specialty products such as enzymes, acidifiers and trace minerals is expected to be a key issue for market participants over the next six years.
