The use of phosphates plays an increasingly strategic and fast-growing role in animal feed and nutrition, particularly in China and other emerging markets, where meat and livestock consumption is rising on economic growth and demand from the middle classes.

This report focuses on the differing nutrient requirements of poultry, swine and cattle, and how phosphates are seen as increasingly essential to animal health vitality and development.

The author also covers world phosphate resources, looking at major producers of rock phosphate and their supply potential for the future. Leading manufacturing companies are also examined.

Further detailed information is provided on Monocalcium phosphate, dicalcium phosphate, tricalcium phosphate, defluoirinated phosphate, orthophosphoric acid, meat and bone meal.

Other important issues explored include continued security of supply, legislative controls, phosphate digestibility in livestock and other animals, and environmental and water impacts.
