Micronutrients are required in animal diets for health and well-being, and therefore they are essential for the agricultural production of milk, meat, fiber, and eggs. Deficiencies of micronutrients, particularly in their sub-clinical form where they are not visually apparent, can result in major reductions in productivity. The animal micronutrients market is set to be driven by the rise in demand for animal protein and nutrition.

Rapid growth in poultry meat production is expected to increase the demand for feed micronutrients in this segment.
Zincit helps with energy production, protein synthesis, stabilization of membranes against bacterial endotoxins, antioxidant enzyme production, and maintenance of lymphocyte replication and antibody production.This is essential for the immune system, which makes zinc the market leader, by type, in animal feed micronutrients.
