Market Overview:

The global methionine market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for methionine from feed, pharmaceutical, food and other applications. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing region in the global methionine market during the forecast period.

Global Methionine Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Methionine is an essential amino acid found in proteins. It helps the body make other proteins and enzymes, and also forms part of the chemical structure of DNA. Methionine is important for growth, tissue repair, and the production of antibodies.

Solid Methionine:

Methionine is an amino acid that is present in animal and plant protein. It has several functions in the body, including the production of collagen and sialic acid. The human body cannot synthesize enough methionine to meet its needs from dietary sources; thus it must be consumed through diet or supplements. Methionine deficiency leads to poor growth and development of hair loss (alopecia).

Liquid Methionine:

Liquid methionine is a type of dietary supplement that is produced from the amino acid methionine. It has several important nutritional properties and can be used as an alternative to processed meat, eggs, fish, and soy products. The liquid form of this product contains all the essential nutrients required for human nutrition in a ready-to-use form.

Application Insights:

The global market is segmented by application into feed, pharmaceutical, food and others. The feed industry dominated the overall market in terms of revenue in 2017. Methionine is widely used as a source of sulfur (S-containing amino acid) for the livestock industry due to its ability to promote weight gain and improve animal health. It also helps reduce risks associated with acidosis caused by excess intake of S-rich proteins in animals.

Liquid methionine has been gaining popularity as an effective way to treat gastrointestinal disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), chronic constipation, gas pain & bloating among other symptoms caused due to lack of sufficient dietary fiber intake or improper digestion system functioning properly.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounts for a major share of global population along with being one of the most urbanized regions in terms of income. It also has a large livestock population, which makes it an important consumer as well as producer of animal feed methionine. China and India are among the largest producers and consumers globally owing to their large livestock populations, high per capita incomes, growing demand for meat protein supplements, and increasing awareness about nutritional enrichment products.

North America accounted for more than 20% revenue share in 2017 on account rising consumption from countries such as U.S.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for meat and poultry products due to changing dietary habits of consumers in emerging countries.
  • Rising awareness about the health benefits of methionine among consumers.
  • Growing use of methionine as a feed additive in livestock farming industry to improve the quality of meat and eggs produced by animals.
  • Increasing demand for bio-based methionine from various end-use industries such as food & beverage, nutraceuticals, and personal care products etcetera
