Feed Amino Acids Market Scenario

The feed amino acids market is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period due to the rising consumption of animal meat. Amino acids are the building blocks for proteins and substrates for synthesis of low molecular weight substances. Essential amino acids, such as lysine and tryptophan, participate in cell signaling, gene expression, and metabolic regulation in animals. Thus, amino acids in feed are considered to be more vital than just protein involvement in an animal diet.

Amino acid deficiency in animals can weaken their immune system. Feed formulated with amino acid help in reducing emission of nitrogen from animal manure, thereby, creating a healthy environment; thus, acting as a key market driver. The factors that affect the level of amino acid content in animal feed are animal species and breed, age, gender, physical activity, body protein formation level, and health status, among others. Other factors boosting the growth of feed amino acids industry include improved efficiency of nutrients, along with growth, development, reproduction, lactation, and well-being in animals. Due to such factors, poultry owners and cattle raisers are creating a huge demand for amino acids in animal feed.
