Global Cysteine Market - Segmented by Production Process, Application, End-user Industry, and Geography - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)
The global cysteine market is expected to witness a CAGR of approximately 5.5% during the forecast period, primarily driven by growing demand from the dough conditioning application, from the bakery industry. Increasing demand from the pharmaceutical industry is also likely to stimulate the cysteine market during the forecast period.
Dough Conditioning Application Driving the Market
Cysteine is widely used in the bakery industry as a dough conditioner. It tears apart the disulfide bonds of gluten, a protein found in flour that is responsible for giving thickness to dough. India is the second-largest manufacturer of biscuits, after United States. The bakery industry in India is expected to grow at 18-20% in the next five years, with proliferation of brands, such as Bauli. Bimbo, world's largest bakery product group, has muscled its way into India with the acquisition of a majority stake in a local bread group, Ready Roti India. This could spark more deals for cysteine in the coming years.
Food the Dominating End-User Industry
Cysteine is used as an ideal intermediate for meat flavorings and roast aromas. By reacting cysteine with various sugars, a number of savory flavors can be synthesized. The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) also announced that the average consumer is expected to eat 222.2 pounds of red meat and poultry in 2018. Domestic production is also expected to surpass GBP 100 billion. The decline in meat prices and dietary trends that focus more on protein and less on carbohydrates have helped in the continuous growth of meat production. With the increase in consumption of meat, across the world, the demand for cysteine is likely to grow during the forecast period.
Animal Feed and Pharmaceutical Dominating the Asia-Pacific Market
In terms of consumption, in 2017, Asia-Pacific held a significant market share. China is the largest producer of L-cysteine. The country follows the traditional method of producing cysteine, using duck feathers and human hair compared to the fermentation process. China’s animal feed production industry is the largest industry, globally, with around 187 million metric ton production in 2016. It is further planning to increase its production to 220 million metric ton by 2020, as per the 13th Five Year Plan (2016-2020) of Ministry of Agriculture, which in turn, is likely to drive the demand for cysteine during the forecast period.
In November 2017, CJ Haide (a subsidiary of CJ CheilJedang) completed the expansion of its Daxie facility, to increase the production capacity of fermented cysteine to 3,000 metric ton.
Major Players: Wacker Chemie AG, Ajinomoto North America Inc., Nippon Rika Industries Corporation, CJ CheilJedang Corp., and Merck KGaA, among others.
