Market Definition:
Silage is a plant material that has undergone fermentation. It is used as cattle feed. The primary objective of silage production is to maximize the preservation of original nutrients in the forage crop for feeding the livestock later. Silage is also one of the sources of biofuel. Silage inoculants are added to the forage to control the fermentation process of silage and also to enhance the nutritive value and hygiene of silage.
Market Scenario:
Silage inoculants are important for animal nutrition since they improve silage quality and control the preservation process, so that it can be used further for feeding livestock. Increased focus on enhancing feed utilization and improvising animal health are driving the growth of the silage inoculants market. Additionally, rising consumption of biofuels is fueling the growth of the silage inoculants market especially in the developed countries. Moreover, the demand for meat is increasing due to continuously growing population, changing lifestyle and cultural trends, which is boosting the growth of the market.

Furthermore, involvement of government in promoting clean energy is a major driving factor for the silage inoculants market. Moreover, focus on R&D is bringing innovative products in animal nutrients is supporting the market growth in a positive direction. However, rising new entrants in the feed inoculants industry may constraint the growth of the market.
