Asia Pacific to Continue on Top
On the basis of region, the worldwide market for butyric derivatives is led by Asia Pacific and is expected to continue being so over the next few years due to the high production of meat in this region. In 2015, this regional market accounted for a share of more than 35% in the overall market. The increasing production of pork and poultry meat in Asian economies, especially China and India, is likely to ensure the lead of this region in the near future.
