The market is projected to reach USD 2487.34 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 3.34% during the forecast period (2017 to 2023). Mycotoxin detoxifiers, when used in animal feed, prevent the contamination of feed by mycotoxins, which are a collective group of natural chemicals (toxic secondary metabolite) produced by certain molds. The presence of various mycotoxins contaminate the animal feed and negatively affect the health of animals. The adverse effects could range from problems related to reproduction and organ damage (liver/kidney) to a greater susceptibility to infectious diseases in animals. They can also affect the performance of these animals. To protect these animals from these adverse effects, mycotoxin detoxifiers are used in animal fodder. They are unique for each mycotoxin and are required to be supplemented in animal feed to counter the harmful effects of mycotoxins.


The growing demand for high-value animal protein has put the livestock sector under much pressure. The global livestock sector is growing at an exponential rate and the factor that is fuelling this enormous surge is a combination of growth in population, the rise in incomes and urbanisation. By 2030, the annual meat production is poised to increase by 18%. There is a direct relationship between the income level and the animal protein consumption, as the consumption of milk, meat, and eggs increase at the expense of staple foods. Urbanisation has proved to be the most important factor influencing the growing demand for livestock products. City dwellers are recorded to have a varied diet rich in the animal proteins and fats present in meat and dairy products compared to the less diversified diets of the rural communities. There has been a substantial increase in the consumption of animal products in countries like India, Brazil and China, though the levels are still below the levels of consumption in North American and most other developed countries. With the diets becoming richer and more diverse, livestock sector offers high-value proteins that improve the nutrition of the majority of the world. Apart from providing high-value proteins, livestock products also are important sources of a varied range of essential micronutrients, specifically minerals like iron & zinc, and vitamins like vitamin A.


The prevention of mycotoxin contamination remains to be the primary goal of the feed industries, and under certain environmental conditions the contamination of various commodities with mycotoxins is unavoidable

Feed additives like antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, and trace elements are used to reduce the toxic effects observed in animals. The increasing number of incidences on the presence of mycotoxins in feeds has risen the demand for natural and economical detoxification procedures. A number of approaches are used to counteract mycotoxins, though a few have been highly effective in practical application. Physical treatment of the feed, which includes washing, polishing, mechanical sorting and separation, segregation, flotation, autoclaving, roasting and microwave heating, UV irradiation, ultrasound treatment and solvent extraction can be implemented economically. Though, the efficiency of these techniques depends on the level of contamination and are uncertain at times, the use of these alternatives help solve the contamination of the feed from mycotoxins at the grassroots level and thereby can restrain the growth of the mycotoxin detoxifiers market


Natural organic binders have been proposed as one of the natural and effective detoxifying agents for mycotoxins in animal feed. Another effective strategy to control mycotoxicoses in animals is the application of microorganisms, which are capable of bio transforming certain mycotoxins into less toxic metabolites

The microorganisms act in the intestinal tract of animals prior to the absorption of the mycotoxins. Many species of bacteria and fungi have been shown to enzymatically degrade mycotoxins. Yeasts and lactic acid bacteria (LAB) occur as part of the natural microbial population in the spontaneous fermentation of feed. Besides the effective nutritional value of these, yeast or yeast cell walls show tremendous potential as mycotoxin binders. The adsorption of mycotoxins is enhanced significantly by the usage of yeast cell walls


A four year, €5m backed EU project is looking to create a cloud based platform that provides real-time, customised advice about mycotoxins in order to achieve crop contamination reductions of between 20 and 90%. The initiative, which is funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, involves a multidisciplinary team of scientists, engineers and IT specialists as well as policymaker representatives, academic and industry partners. The EU produces yearly about 133 million tons (Mt) of wheat, 68Mt of maize and 8Mt of oats. Mycotoxin contamination results in €1.2 to €2.4bn in lost income for wheat alone in the EU, and a reduction in such losses of only 1% would save somewhere between €12 to 24m, said the research partners. Major players, with the support of government, are coming up with innovative solutions and strengthening their R&D so as to provide utmost nutritional value and safety to the animal feed and feed ingredients and thereby to human beings
