Category : Consumer Goods and Food and Beverages | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC486


Amino acids are organic compounds made from amino and carboxylic acid functional groups. The major elements of amino acids are oxygen, hydrogen, carbon, and nitrogen. Structurally, amino acid is divided into alpha, delta, beta, and gamma. Due to their biological importance, amino acids are generally used in nutritional doses, food technology, and fertilizers. Amino acid, in industrial applications, is used for the production of chiral catalysts, biodegradable plastics, and drugs. Amino acid is used in feed additives to improve metabolism and nourish animals like pigs, cattle, and broiler, which are used primarily for the consumption of meat. Global meat consumption estimates are increasing every year; also lasin, methionine, threonine, and tryptophan are major animal feed additives. New production technology and mass production of amino acids make it more economical and, thus increase its user base.

Increasing life expectancy, less availability of arable land and water resources for animal feed production, and demand for growing food crops for food and ethanol production has supplemented the growth of meat industry, which in turn is creating the need to optimize feed use.

Market Dynamics

There has been an increasing demand for animal-based products mainly due to increase in food production, standardization of meat products, disease outbreaks, implementation of innovative animal husbandry practices, improved quality of meat as well as increasing support by governments and environmentalists. In addition, increasing awareness among consumers regarding nutritious supplements for monogastric animals is posing attractive opportunities for market players. Also, escalation in demand for meat has in turn increased the overall livestock production. Thus, increasing livestock production is further estimated to drive the growth of global amino acid market over the foreseeable years. Furthermore, consumption of dietary supplements, especially in sports & nutrition application, is projected to surge the development of amino acid industry. In recent times, less availability of amino acid rich raw materials such as soybean, wheat, and maize is challenging the growth of industry participants, which is further spurred by the increase in prices of amino acids. However, upsurge in technology such as microfiltration provides potential opportunities for companies to increase yield. Moreover, rise in demand for animal feed additives coupled with increasing inclination of consumers towards meat consumption due to several health benefits is anticipated to bring impetus in the demand for amino acids over the forecast period.

Market Classification and Overview

Change in lifestyle along with increasing awareness for maintaining a healthy diet is likely to accelerate the demand for dietary supplements. Aspartame (methyl ester of natural amino acid dipeptide) is widely used in food and beverage industry as artificial sweetener in bakery products, grains, syrups, fruit-based products and ready-to-drink drinks. The use of aspartame in food products is gaining comprehensive acceptance due to its high health benefits and increasing consumer awareness.

The feed amino acid market is bifurcated into type, livestock, physical form and geography. On the basis of type, the market is classified into tryptophan, lysine, methionine, threonine, and others (histidine, isoleucine, valine, phenylalanine, and arginine). Based on livestock, the market is classified into aquaculture, ruminants, swine, poultry, and others (equine and pets). On the basis of physical form, the market is classified into liquid feed amino acids and dry feed amino acids. Based on geography, market is divided into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Middle East & Africa.
