Amino acid industry hot topics in 2013 and H1 2014:
In order to stimulate weak market prices of bulk amino acid products (lysine and threonine), manufacturers started to cut production since H2 2013. Partly because of the production cuts, prices of these amino acids saw rebounds in Q2 2014. Similar is the case of monosodium glutamate.
Domestic capacity of lysine and threonine continues to increase, following the capacity expansion of some major producers.
Asia is becoming another production center of methionine, as a series of methionine projects are introduced in China and Southeast Asia. Some projects are expected to begin production within 2014.
Purpose of report:
To clearly describe China's amino acid industry, CCM has collected a lot of information about new amino acid projects which are still under planning, in the process of construction, or recently completed in 2014. Industry trends and focus will be analyzed in this report.
What to report:
In this report, new amino acid projects in China are listed and analyzed from the following aspects:
Background of projects, including current situation of amino acid industry and introduction of related enterprises;
Project information, including the amount of investment, target capacity, and schedule or current progress;
Prospect of projects;
A concise analysis of hot investment and future trend of China's amino acid industry;
In the next few years, the amino acid industry in China will continue to develop in a more balanced way, as follows:
China will reduce its dependence on the import of methionine and phenylalanine in the future.
Additional capacities will stimulate the competition among domestic lysine and threonine producers, and thus promote the industry integration and increase the concentration.
The production of China's high-quality amino acids for food and pharmaceutical fields is anticipated to have significant increase.
