The overuse and inappropriate use of antibiotics in medical feed additives impacts the health of individuals consuming the animal meat or other related products.Moreover, the health of the animal consuming the feed may also be adversely affected by the antibiotics added to the feed as the excess additive reduces the natural immunity of the animal and increases susceptibility of the livestock to infections.

For instance, on July 1 2020, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs in China, under Announcement No. 194 banned the production of commercial feed with medicated feed additives (excluding traditional Chinese medicine) for growth promoting purposes The negative effects of additives on human health caused due to overuse of feed additives in animals will restrain the growth of the market.
