Global amino acids market expected to reach $35.4 Billion by 2022

Global amino acids market size is anticipated to be valued at USD 35.4 billion by 2022, as per a new research report by Radiant Insights, Inc. Increase in animal feed additive demand owing to regulate metabolism in livestock production owing to growing meat consumption is expected to drive the market. Shift in trend towards dietary supplements consumption for protein intake coupled with rising health consciousness among consumers is likely to surge amino acids demand. 

Growing artificial sweeteners demand from food & beverages industry owing to low calorie content in the form of aspartame derived from l-aspartic & phenylaniline acid may drive the market. Increasing application scope in pharmaceuticals as buffering agents is expected to have a positive influence on demand. Tight supply of raw materials such as corn, soybean and wheat is expected to challenge industry growth.

L-glutamic acid was the leading product segment with a market share of over 40% in 2014. The l-glutamic acid market revenue exceeded USD 8.5 billion in 2014, owing to flavor enhancing and pH regulation properties in food & beverages. Tryptophan is expected to witness significant growth rates with an estimated CAGR of 18.0% up to 2022.
