Aspartic Acid Market Analysis - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends and Forecast, 2018 - 2026

Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC540


Aspartic acid, also known as aspartate, is used in biosynthesis of proteins. Aspartic acid, in combination with glutamic acid is known as an acidic amino acid. L-aspartic acid and D-aspartic acid are the two forms of enantiomers of aspartic acid available in the industry. L-aspartic acid is directly combined into proteins unlike the D-aspartic acid. Aspartic acid is used in the production of sweetener known as aspartame. The market for aspartic acid is driven by the increased demand for biodegradable products because of the depleting fossil fuel reserves.

Market Dynamics

Upsurge in the end-use industries such as pharmaceuticals, food & beverage, and chemical is believed to be the major factor augmenting the growth of aspartic acid market. Increased consumption of meat and sweeteners is another important factor contributing to the growth of aspartic acid market. Moreover, the upsurge in biodegradable polymers also boosts the market for aspartic acid. However, the fluctuating raw material price hampers the growth of aspartic acid market. Also, the complexity in manufacturing process and its increased cost restrains the market growth for aspartic acid.

Market Classification and Overview

The aspartic acid market is bifurcated based on applications, end-use industry, and geography. Feed supplements, medicines, polyaspartic acid, aspartame, L-alanine, and others are various applications of aspartic acid. Polyaspartic acid was estimated to be the largest application segment owing to its increased demand in the form of biodegradable polymer. Pharmaceuticals, food & beverages, and chemical are the major end-use industries for aspartic acid.

Regional Overview

The market for aspartic acid is segmented into regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle-East and Africa (MEA). North America was the largest market revenue contributor in 2015, owing to the existence of modern healthcare facility in the U.S. along with upsurge in sweetener demand. Asia-Pacific is also projected to register the highest growth during the forecast period, as a result of increase in demand for sweeteners for carbonated beverages. Europe is the second largest revenue contributor to the aspartic acid market due to rise in demand for packaged food in this region.
