Methionine Market 2018 Industry Analysis Survey, Size, Share, Investment, Competitive Analysis, Potential Growth and Future Demand till 2023

methionine market is majorly driven by its usage in major end-user industries such as animal feed, food & beverage, pharmaceutical, and others.

Market Overview to 2023:

Methionine is one of the essential amino acids required for growth and tissue repair in humans, animals, and avian species. It is important for angiogenesis, i.e., the growth of new blood vessels and maintains the metallic element level in the body. High levels of methionine can be found in eggs, cheese, spinach, asparagus, sesame seeds, Brazil nuts, fish, meat, and poultry.

The global methionine market is majorly driven by its usage in major end-user industries such as animal feed, food & beverage, pharmaceutical, and others. The animal feed is the largest segment in terms of value and is expected to lead the global methionine market over the next 7 years. The increasing concerns about food safety and animal health and nutrition is driving the market growth. The use of methionine in the food & beverage industry has augmented the market growth due to its ability to combine with other chemicals in the body to remove toxins. It converts into S-Adenosyl Methionine, which is a chemical used to treat depression and reduce osteoarthritis pain. The increasing joint pain issues in geriatric population is another factor driving the market growth. Furthermore, the emerging applications of methionine in aqua-farming of shrimps, finfish, and crustaceans to ensure adequate sulfur amino acids is likely to bolster the market growth. Some of the recent trends in the market includes capacity expansions in existing plants and emerging markets. For instance, Sumitomo Chemical started building a methionine facility with an output of 100,000 metric ton per year in December 2016. Also, Evonik has begun construction of large-scale production plant of DL-methionine in October 2016 in Singapore, which will be operational in 2019. Additionally, methionine is responsible for producing collagen, which helps in enhancing skin, hair, and nails condition. However, the complexities in production of methionine may challenge the market growth. Nevertheless, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has identified methionine as safe when added in food products except for the instant and nitrate containing products. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) under the National Organic Program (NOP) has allowed the extension of methionine in organic poultry.
