This market research study identifies China National BlueStar, CJ CheilJedang, Evonik Industries, Sumitomo Chemical, and TOKYO CHEMICAL INDUSTRY as the leading players in the global methionine market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by application (food and dietary supplements, animal feed, and pharmaceuticals) and by geography (APAC, Europe, North America, and ROW).

Overview of the global methionine market

A large number of manufacturers use methionine in the production of various medicines. Methionine is extensively preferred because it is an amino acid that helps in the neutralization of ammonia in urine. In addition, research analysis on the global methionine market identifies that the increasing scope of application of methionine in the pharmaceutical and medical industries will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the market. The pharmaceutical and medical industries are increasingly focusing on the development of solutions to increase the acidity of urine and heal wounds by using DL-methionine and other methionine-based medicines. Also, the breakdown of acetaminophen causes acetaminophen (Tylenol) poisoning, which in turn, results in liver damage. This boosts the demand for methionine because it is used to treat liver disorders by preventing the liver damage. It is also used to treat depression, alcoholism, allergies, asthma, copper poisoning, radiation side-effects, and schizophrenia. Technavio's market research analysts predict that this market will grow at a CAGR of close to 7% by 2021.

One of the key trends that will gain traction in the global methionine market during the predicted period is the increased use of dietary and sports methionine supplement for a healthy lifestyle. Also, one of the key aspects of sports to enhance one's performance in the game is the consumption of nutrition. This drives the need for L-methionine in dietary and sports supplements. It has sulfur content, which aids in healthy growth and metabolism.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the methionine market

  • Food and dietary supplements
  • Animal feed
  • Pharmaceuticals

The increasing demand for poultry and livestock is driving the adoption of methionine in animal feed. The body of an animal does not produce methionine and obtains essential amino acids through their food. This drives the need for methionine in animal feed because it is essential for healthy and productive poultry and livestock. It also provides the building blocks for immune cells and tissues. The animal feed segment will continue to grow for the next four years due to the increasing population and rising consumption of meat and the development of science and technology related to animal feed.

Segmentation by geography and analysis of the methionine market

  • APAC
  • Europe
  • North America
  • ROW

In terms of geography, APAC is a producer and consumer of methionine due to the widespread production of cattle in most of the countries in the region. The adoption of methionine is high in the region because the government is focusing on ensuring the food security for the rising population by providing support for animal husbandry. The market will continue to grow in the region throughout the estimated period due to the rising emphasis on biotechnological innovations in animal productivity.
