Amino Acids Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024

Amino acids refer to organic compounds which contain amino and carboxyl groups. They are the building blocks of proteins which play a crucial role in the biological processes of a body. They are found in abundance in red meat, sea food, eggs, dairy products, quinoa and soy products. Amino acids are beneficial for strengthening immune system, improving muscles, fighting arthritis and cancer, and treating tinnitus and rectal diseases. According to IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Amino Acids Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, the global amino acids market reached a volume of 8.86 Million Tons in 2018.

Rising health-consciousness among the consumers has increased the demand for nutrient-rich food products. This has prompted the manufacturers to introduce protein-rich foods and beverages in the market, leading to an increase in the demand for amino acids. Apart from this, amino acids are used for the manufacturing of supplements which are consumed by athletes as well as the aged population. Further, amino acids are also used in animal feed to supplement the protein requirement of the animals. According to the report, the market is expected to reach a volume of 11.46 Million Tons in 2024, registering a CAGR of 4.4% during 2019-2024.

The report has segmented the market on the basis of type, covering glutamic acid, lysine and methionine. Glutamic acids represent the leading type within this segment. Based on the raw materials, plant-based amino acids dominate the market. On the basis of application, the animal feed industry leads the market, followed by food and healthcare industry. Region-wise, the report covers Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, Latin America and the Middle East.
