Methionine Market

Fundamentals Governing Methionine Market

Emergence of bio-methionine is one of the major trends witnessed in the methionine market. Methionine is majorly derived from petrochemical sources, where raw materials are hard-to-handle and hazardous. Thus, companies are adopting new innovative biochemical process to manufacture methionine from essential raw materials, owing to their environment-friendly nature and sustainability benefits over petrochemical sources.

Growing demand for animal feed in the poultry industry is one of the key factors driving the methionine market. The demand is increasing at an exponential rate due to the increasing consumption of meat and egg. Methionine helps in the growth and development of the digestive tract of animals that plays a key role in increasing muscle mass and improving egg production of poultry animals.

Methionine Market

The use of methionine in pharmaceuticals application is increasing, owing to its therapeutic advantages in treating liver cirrhosis, toxic hepatitis, pneumonia, and copper poisoning. It is used as a buffering agent in analgesics and antacids to treat aforementioned diseases, which is expected to provide lucrative opportunities in the methionine market.

Segmentation Analysis of Methionine Market

The liquid category is expected to exhibit faster volumetric growth during the forecast period, with a CAGR of 32.2%, on the basis of form. This can be attributed to the increasing production capacity of liquid form by key players, such as Bluestar Adisseo Company and Novus International Inc., in the methionine market.

The DL-methionine category held the largest volume share in 2017, among all types, in the methionine market. This is ascribed to its wide applications in food processing, pharmaceuticals, and animal husbandry.

The animal feed additives category held the largest volume share in 2017, based on application, in the methionine market. This is attributed to the growing consumption of meat and egg worldwide. This leads to increase in demand for more poultry production, which prompts farmers to use methionine in animal diet to increase productivity.
