Lysine Market Trends



  • Rise in risk factors associated with protein deficiency boosts the market growth


The growing prevalence of various health issues associated with protein deficiency is a key factor driving market revenue growth. Additionally, consumers around the world are becoming more aware of the healthy eating habits. A deficiency of protein, for example, can lead to Kwashiorkor and Marasmus. There is a significant risk of extreme emaciation and a prolonged negative energy balance, which can lead to fat exhaustion and muscle wasting, affecting many people's health. The World Health Organization estimates that 149.2 million children under the age of 5 are stunted and 45.4 million are wasted ly in 2020. A lack of protein synthesis and increased tissue breakdown also compromise the functionality of organs such as the heart, lungs, kidneys, etc. According to the World Economic Forum, the 26% of the population get the insufficient nutrients.
