In 1975, the US Kcmlri Co. came up with commercial feed enzymes. Since Finnfeed International of Cultor Group Finland (now Danisco Animal Nutrition) first started applying beta-glucanase enzyme in poultry feed in the mid-1980s, feed enzymes have been increasingly used by the global feed industry (Mo, 1997) and it has become a significant class of feed additives today. In 1998, some US$150 million worth of enzymes were added to approximately 10% of the global monogastric animal feed.
Feed enzymes were first introduced in China in 1989, and after years of developing the market, it has become widely accepted in 2000 by many in the animal farming industry and achieved rapid growth in 2003.
The growth of compound enzymes however started to stagnate in 2004, while phytase started to experience explosive growth, making the latter the most sought after feed additive for 3 years straight.
The annual consumption of feed enzymes in 2006 hit 20,100 tonnes. 12,800 tonnes of compound enzymes were used (a slight drop of 1.5% from 2005) to process 14.44 million tonnes of feed, a market penetration of 14.7% (same as 2005).
For single unit enzymes, 1,700 tonnes were used (a huge increase of 79%) while the amount of phytase used was 5,600 tonnes (which is a 24.4% growth rate). 33.54 million tonnes of feed were processed, a market penetration of 34.1% (a slight drop compared to 2005).
The market value of China feed enzymes hit RMB464 million in 2006, of which compound enzymes were worth RMB262 million (a growth of 2.34% from 2005). Phytase which had increased tremendously only had a market value of RMB 143 million (a drop of 18.8% from 2005).
Feed enzymes can be divided into two classes—single unit enzymes and compound enzymes.
Single unit enzymes include digestive enzyme and non-starch polysaccharides. The main digestive enzymes used in China's feed industry are amylase and protease; non-starch polysaccharides inlclude cellulase, beta-glucanase, pectinase and phytase. Others are mannase and galactose glucoside enzymes. Besides phytase, most feed enzymes are made from single unit enzymes through replication or directly from fermentation.
Products containing multiple single unit enzymes or a single unit enzyme with many components are called compound enzymes.
Published research data and user experience suggest that an optimally formulated multi-enzyme product would outperform single unit enzyme product as it can simultaneously break down many nutritive factors.
This report traces the origins of the uses of compound enzymes and phytase enzyme in China's feed industry and provides an in depth and multi approach analysis of current and future development trends.
