As defined by Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO), organic trace minerals can be categorized as metal complexes, metal amino acid complexes, metal amino acid chelates, metal proteinates metal polysaccharide complexes, metal propionates, and yeast derivative complexes.
The organic trace minerals are used with animal feed in small quantities; however they play an important role in the maintenance of health and productivity of animals. Apart from organic sources, trace minerals also manufactured inorganically. The prevalent inorganic sources of trace minerals include common sulphates, chlorides, oxides, and carbonates. The organic trace minerals are formed by the attachment of inorganic minerals with organic molecules, such as amino acids and polysaccharides.
Organic trace minerals enhance gut absorption in animals, and improve bioavailability in animal feed. The inorganic trace minerals on the other hand, may interact with fiber, phytate, tannin, silicate, oxalate or other minerals in the gastro-intestinal tract of animals, and may cause trouble in feed absorption. This is leading to the shift in buying process of trace minerals from inorganic towards organic form, by the animal farm owners.
The increasing iron deficiency among poultry and ruminants is expected to drive the growth of the iron segment in the global organic trace mineral market during the forecast period. Manganese and copper boosts immunity of the animals. The other types include selenium and cobalt. The sales of organic trace mineral also largely depend upon the advice of veterinarians to the animal farm owners. The consolidating animal farms further increase the importance of veterinary prescription for organic trace mineral products, as they play a significant role in volume sales of such products.
The high research and development costs associated with the development of organic trace minerals is one of the key restraints in the market.

The Asia-Pacific organic trace minerals market is also growing with a considerable growth rate, mostly due to the increasing consumption and export of meat and milk products in the region. China accounts for approximately 25% of the global meat production, which is also increasing the demand of organic trace minerals in the country. Brazil is expected to be one of the fastest growing markets, due to its large beef exports and increasing demand for organic animal feed and related products.
