To elaborate on the benefits of isoflavones and especially that of genistein, it should be mentioned that genistein has the ability to block the buildup of harmful testosterones or dihydrotestosterone that is linked to prostate cancer and prostate enlargement as it acts as a natural inhibitor of the enzyme that converts testosterones in dihydrotestosterone. Besides this soy isoflavones have found to exhibit a number of other anti-cancer effects besides having antioxidant properties which protect the cardiovascular system from oxidation of LDL cholesterol.

Oxidized LDL cholesterol is known to cause atherosclerosis by accumulating in the arteries as fatty buildup blocking the flow of blood. Arteries damaged by atherosclerosis usually form blood clots that can lead to a heart attack or even stroke. Genistein has properties that prevent artery clogging plaque. Rising incidence of cardiovascular disorders are one of the leading reasons that research into the benefits of isoflavones and consumption of soy beans is becoming stronger.

Isoflavones have proved to be better suited for treatment procedures that replace hormones such as estrogen hormone replacement therapy and shows none of the negative effects that occur too often with conventional therapies with hormones.

For instance, studies have shown that estrogens can slow down the aging process of the skin in postmenopausal women. This has prompted many women to opt for hormone replacement therapies as the level of estrogen declines rapidly in postmenopausal women, speeding up the aging process. But with isoflavones having found favor in cosmetic formulations, not only for anti-aging benefits but also for treating irritating skin conditions including rashes, eczema and psoriasis, isoflavones industry has received a sizeable boost from the cosmetics market. Considering that anti-aging products are touted to garner commendable acclaim in 2019 and ahead, isoflavones market will register a massive increase in revenue from cosmetic applications over 2019-2025.

Another reason that has helped isoflavones market is the stellar rise of popularity of a vegan diet. As consumers around the world have become aware of the ecological burden of meat and dairy consumption, veganism has rapidly become mainstream. Surveys have shown that more than 50% of Americans have come to support ban of slaughterhouses and around 70% have admitted to being uncomfortable with poor treatment of animals, which in part explains why veganism rose by 600% in the country between 2014 and 2017.

The trend has been noted in other parts of the world as well with 8% of people in the UK being vegan in 2018 and Australians also showing similar trends. Rising incidence of disease and obesity has played its part in this surge of veganism. As such meat substitutes have become very popular and consumption of soy products like tofu and tempeh having registered a massive growth, has in turn added remarkable stimulus to the isoflavones market. Considering that mindful eating and awareness of food components, including chemical content of food is gaining rapid popularity, the isoflavones market is expected to amount to $30 billion by 2025 in terms of revenue.

Reportedly, the meat sector has increased its investments lately so as to meet the surging demand for high protein meat products for health-conscious consumers, and has seemingly switched to ready-to-eat (RTE) meat products due to easy availability, hectic lifestyles, and rising innovations in meat processing technology. Reports suggest that in the 2015, the China’s meat production accounted for 28.4% of the total meat production in the world, while the global meat production stood at 86.25 million tons. By adopting advanced meat processing technologies and phytogenic feed additives (PFAs), meat industry players are focusing on increasing their output yield, which would quite overtly prove to beneficial for feed phytogenics market.

Ideally, PFAs are used in the animal industry is to improve the feed quality as well as animal health and performance. The product is considered as a first alternative to AGP (antibiotic growth promotors), mainly due to its antioxidant, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Most reports speculate an optimistic growth in PFA promoting effects on reproduction of milk, egg, and meat. These products have found wide usage in dairy cow nutrition to enhance the technical properties of milk for cheese and butter production and play a critical role in reacting to a ruminant’s complex digestive and metabolic system.

Surging essential oils demand to augment feed phytogenic market landscape

Essential oils (EOs) are widely used as PFAs, due to their strong aromatic features and bioactivity. On account of the volatile and reactive nature of EOs, their effectiveness in animals can be influenced by different conditions during production processes, storage of EOs, and conditions in the gastrointestinal tract of the animals. Evidence suggest that PFAs containing more volume of essential oils can minimize the environmental impact of livestock industry on the atmosphere by reducing emissions of ammonia from pig production, and methane from fermentation in the rumen. Moreover, these products can increase the absorption of amylase and other endogenous enzymes, further increasing the commercialization potential of EO-based feed phytogenics market.

The use of EO-based PFAs offers several benefits to producers, including enhanced animal performance, improved feed efficiency and reduced emissions. According to reports from the animal health and nutrition company, BIOMIN, the overall phytogenic feed additives sector alone is likely to become a billion-dollar industry by 2030. A report from Global Market Insights, Inc., claims essential oils-based feed phytogenics industry size to surpass USD 380 million by 2024.

China to step up as a major consumer in the Feed Phytogenics Market

China is one of the largest beef and sheep meat producers and consumers across the globe. In 2015, the country’s sheep meat production was reported at 4.41 million tons, accounting around 30% of the world’s total sheep meat production, while beef production was reported at 7 million tons, accounting for 10.4% of the global yield, eventually making China as the world’s 3rd largest beef meat producer after Brazil and the United States.

Reportedly, steady domestic prices have attracted investment into cattle farming in the region. Experts suggest that the surge in purchases of meat products by Chinese consumers is expected to remain the main factor driving the China feed phytogenics market in the future. Indeed, China feed phytogenics market size, as per estimates, is forecast to exceed USD 50 million by 2024.

Highly appreciable benefits of feed phytogenics include, increased growth performance, digestion stimulation, increased feed intake, reduced diarrhea prevalence, improvement in reproductive system and feed efficiency. Quite overtly, the growing occurrence of diseases, rising consumption of meat and increasing healthcare regulations on the usage of antibiotics in animal feed will augment the growth of feed phytogenics market size.
