Anti-caking agents in feed are used to ensure no formation of lumps in the feed and for better and optimal packaging to make transportation simpler. The market is valued at $xx billion in 2015 and is expected to reach $xx billion by 2020 at a CAGR of XX%.

North America is the largest anti-caking agents market, closely followed by Europe. The market is driven primarily due to expansion of animal feed market. As the livestock industry is growing at brisk rate, the requirement for animal feed is increasing day by day which helps the feed additives market to grow, in particularly the Feed Anti caking agents. The major concern regarding the anti-caking agent's is the health risks posed by their usage. Uncertainties regarding the effect and usage of synthetic agents have become a major restraint for the market growth. This has directed the farmers towards the natural agents. In addition, high cost of natural agents is also barricading the growth of market. Therefore, the opportunities lie in the manufacturing of innovative technological advancements under the natural category.

The opportunity for growth in the emerging markets of Asia-Pacific, mainly due to the increasing feed markets in the region and evolution of livestock industry. As the share of the meat eaters is increasing in the region, the livestock industry is booming enabling the anti-caking agents market to grow. Moreover, rise in demand of feed additives and compound feed has opened the doors for the market to explore.

The market is segmented based on type, which include calcium compounds, sodium compounds, potassium compounds and silicon compounds. Silicates are also widely used anti-caking agents as silicates can absorb both water and oil. The market for silicates is further expanded by avoiding the formation of lumps. The growth is also seen in sodium compounds and calcium products such as sodium ferrocyanide, tri calcium phosphate etc., as they reduce the individual adhesion of feed. The market is further segmented based on animal, which includes poultry, ruminant, swine and others. Poultry and ruminant have a higher market share relative to others. Poultry takes 40% of the market share globally and swine up to 25% share of the Market. Aquaculture segment is expected to catch up with horses. North America, especially U.S.A, drives the market occupying almost 70% share. The high production levels of the livestock industry and requirement of high quality feed boosts the market. U.S.A exports its products to many of the countries in the North America and other regions.

The leading players in the anti-caking agents market include BASF, Evonik Industries AG, Huber Engineered Material, and Kao Corp. Companies are investing in new facilities to expand their production capacities, in order to meet the increasing demand for anti-caking agents.
