The global market for Amino Acids is projected to exceed US$29 billion by 2024, driven by sustained demand from the nutraceuticals and animal feed end-use markets. Fortification of foods with amino acids is emerging into a major trend benefiting consumption patterns in the market, especially against the backdrop of the rise in prevalence of diseases caused by amino acid deficiency. Rising global per capita meat consumption as a result of the migration to protein rich diets is driving growth of the livestock farming industry, which in turn is helping boost consumption of amino acids as feed additives. Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing market worldwide with a CAGR of 5.3% over the analysis period. The growth in the region is led by the rising wave of health consciousness among the affluent base of middle class population and the ensuing opening up of opportunities in the health supplements and nutraceuticals market; growing pressure on livestock farmers to reduce use of antibiotics in animal feed and the resulting increase in interest in amino acids as a potential dietary replacement; and migration of agricultural practices to organic methods and the resulting use of amino acids as an organic and natural plant growth promotant; robust pharmaceutical industry and the parallel increase in use of amino acids in drugs as Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs).
