The silage additives market size is projected to be valued at US$ 2.4 Billion in 2023 and is expected to rise to US$ 4.0 Billion by 2033. The sales of silage additives are expected to grow at a significant CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period.

The growing demand for nutritious food is encouraging farmers to use silage additives in feed to boost productivity. As it stabilises and preserves the forage, silage rapidly reduces oxygen and increases acidity in the fodder.

The industrialization of animal farming was prompted by an increase in demand for meat and other dairy products. As a result, farmers began modernising their equipment and adding additional inputs to enable animal growth, thereby increasing overall productivity.

Furthermore, the thriving era of organic farming and agriculture is paving the way for the growth of biological silage additives, which is expected to boost the global silage additives market.

In the coming years, the global silage additives market is expected to be driven by standardisation in livestock farming and a greater emphasis on designing nutrition programmes that provide optimal nutrients to the animals.

Companies’ increased focus on R&D and the development of innovative products are expected to be major factors influencing the adoption of silage additives.

With increased awareness of silage’s utility as a replacement for fresh fodder and hay, the procedure of silage production is expected to take off in emerging markets such as Asia-Pacific.
