Global Commercial Amino Acids Industry Report 2023

Jul 24, 2023Jul 24, 2023

DUBLIN, Aug. 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Commercial Amino Acids Market" report has been added to's offering.

The global market for amino acids is on a steady growth trajectory, with a projected compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.2% from 2023 to 2028.

While individual amino acids show significant variations in growth, the animal feed supplements market stands as the largest category for amino acids. This comprehensive report delves into the properties of the 20 essential amino acids defined in the genetic code, their current and future uses, technological aspects, and the key manufacturers involved.

With steady growth opportunities in feed and food applications, the demand for amino acids is expected to rise further, driven by population growth and an overall improvement in the global standard of living. These versatile amino acids play vital roles in diverse fields such as food, animal feeds, cosmetics, medicines and biotechnology, and even find application in some industrial sectors, making them integral components of numerous industries.

The most significant current applications in terms of value are observed in animal feed and human food sectors, shaping the global amino acids market landscape. Rapid increases will occur as new separation and purification techniques come online for other essential amino acids, as seen with threonine and tryptophan in the past two years, both of which are now bulk-produced commercial animal feeds with falling prices. Lysine and methionine are the two amino acids widely used to enhance the nutritional value of the protein found in animal feeds. Demand for these two products will remain steady despite new production facilities since livestock populations remain near record high level, due in part to increasing consumption by a growing population. The desire for leaner meats and the introduction of repartitioning agents that cause animals to develop more lean muscle instead of fat are raising demand for lysine and methionine. Threonine and tryptophan are currently produced in commercial quantities for animal feed. Other essential amino acids, including valine, isoleucine and leucine, will be produced as commercial feed additives in the coming years as new production methods are developed. The four amino acids used as food flavoring agents accounted for a market value of $8.4 billion globally in 2022. A projected 5% compound annual growth rate through 2028 is tied to the production and use of the sweetener aspartame. Aspartame has experienced significant negative press and is losing market share to new low-calorie sweeteners such as Splenda, but it is still widely used. Aspartic acid use will also grow as an additive to detergents
