Asia-Pacific Dominates Feed Amino Acids as Largest and Fastest Growing Market Worldwide with 2.8 Million Metric Tons, translating to $5.5 Billion by 2022

Wednesday 18 Oct 2017

Industry Experts, Inc. appended a new market research report "Feed Amino Acids – A Global Market Overview" to their amino acids report series. Asia-Pacific is the world’s largest volume market for feed amino acids, estimated at 1.8 million metric tons (40.7% share) in 2017, which is also likely to record the fastest 2017-2022 CAGR of 8.5% in reaching a projected 2.8 million metric tons by 2022.

Animal feed industry is the largest consumer of amino acids globally. Amino acids such as L-lysine, methionine, L-threonine, L-tryptophan and L-valine improve the nutritional quality of animal feeds by supplying essential amino acids that may be in low abundance in crude protein. In the field of compound feed production for livestock, feed amino acids are considered as indispensable ingredients which optimize the balance of amino acids in feed formulas, thus meeting objectives of performance, cost reduction and reduction of nitrogen excretion in to the environment.

Consumption of Feed Amino Acids worldwide is slated to register a CAGR of 6.8% during the 2017-2022 period. Increasing pressure on the livestock sector to meet the growing demand for animal protein worldwide is driving growth of amino acids in compound animal feed production. The recent past has been witnessing a growing demand for animal protein globally for livestock, dairy and fish. This trend has been more apparent in the developing economies such as Asia-Pacific, as against the developed regions that have continued to be relatively stable. For addressing the increasing global demand for animal protein, it is imperative that the efficiency of converting proteins from feed to meat is improved, which is where amino acids come into play.

Global volume consumption of Feed Grade Amino Acids is estimated at 4.5 million metric tons in 2017 and is projected to reach 6.2 million metric tons by 2022 at a CAGR of 6.8% between the two years. Poultry feed constitutes the largest consumer of feed amino acids globally with 2017 market share of 43.4%, volume consumption of which is slated to compound annually at 7.6% over 2017-2022 in reaching a projected 2.8 million metric tons by 2022 from an estimated 1.9 million metric tons in 2017.
