Thursday 21 Sep 2017

Industry Experts unveiled the new market research report on Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). The report entitled "Branched Chain Amino Acids - A Global Market Overview" reveals that the Global volume consumption of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) is estimated at 20.4 thousand metric tons in 2017 and is projected to reach 35.8 thousand metric tons by 2022 at a CAGR of 11.9% between the two years.

Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), which are proteinogenic amino acids having aliphatic side-chains with a branch, include L-leucine, L-isoleucine, and L-valine. BCAAs are among the nine essential amino acids out of 20 proteinogenic amino acids which are the building blocks of the protein. BCAAs mainly promote muscle protein synthesis and increase muscle growth over time. BCAAs are commercially used in nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals, foods and animal nutrition globally.

Europe leads the global volume market for BCAAs, estimated at 8.5 thousand metric tons (41.7% share) in 2017 while Asia-Pacific is anticipated to register the fastest similar period CAGR of 14.7% and reach a projected 12 thousand metric tons by 2022 from an estimated 6 thousand metric tons in 2017.
