Feed Amino Acids Market Overview


Feed amino acids market is projected to present a 7.3% CAGR to reach USD 49.5 billion by 2030. 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.

It is the only brand providing all feed amino acids produced using microbial fermentation technology.


Best Amino is recognized for its leading position in the global amino acid market. The company currently owns the world's largest feed amino acid portfolio with eight types, including lysine, methionine, threonine, and tryptophan, with tryptophan ranked first in the global market.


Mar.10, 2023, Corteva Inc. and Bunge announced their partnership to develop amino acid-enhanced soybeans. These companies are looking to boost the nutrition profile of soybean meal for poultry, swine, and aqua feed. They have significantly advanced in developing more nutritious soybean meal for the animal feed industry. This multi-year collaboration to develop and commercialize soybean varieties will enable feed compounders to reduce their carbon footprint by minimizing the synthetic additives use and lower costs.


On Feb.03, 2023, Farmers Business Network (FBN) and Boveta Nutrition, LLC, announced results from an FBN-managed independent study, trailing the partnership's amino acid balancing program. The farm managers believe the health of the cattle on the program and overall performance have improved significantly.


On Nov. 11, 2021, Kansas State University researchers announced the completion of work indicating that increased levels of a common feed-grade amino acid can significantly improve growth in swine herds. In its 43-day trial involving 912 pigs, researchers tested varying levels of feed-grade amino acids with L-lysine added to the late nursery and growing pigs' diet.


On July 06, 2021, Evonik published a comparative life cycle assessment (LCA), demonstrating the ecological advantages of using its feed amino acids and feeding solutions compared with common animal nutrition practices.
