Global Zinc Methionine Chelates Market Overview


Zinc Methionine Chelates Market Size was valued at USD 16,386.0 thousand in 2021. The Zinc Methionine Chelates Market Industry is projected to grow from USD 16,386.0 thousand in 2021 to USD 27,794.5 million by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.34% during the forecast period (2022 - 2030). The growth and development of various organisms including animals and humans are carried out by various nutrients like minerals and vitamins. Minerals are responsible for several biological and chemical functions in the body of an organism. They act as a catalyst, electrolytes, antioxidants, etc. One of the subsets of minerals is trace minerals which are required in minimal amounts for better functioning and health of an organism. Zinc, one of the eleven trace minerals is part of more than 300 enzymes and hormones. It also has an important role in the production of insulin, DNA, and RNA synthesis. The trace mineral, Zinc is responsible for the facilitation of immune response, protein synthesis, hair maintenance, and the repair & renewal of cells. Chelated zinc is a form of mineral designed for the better absorption of zinc across the digestive tract. The other significant benefits of chelated zinc use include healthy skin, better connective tissue, and prostate function.


Zinc for animal and human consumption is either in organic or inorganic compound forms. Owing to higher bioavailability, better absorption, and improved utilization of zinc, zinc chelates are being chosen as an alternative to organic zinc compounds like zinc oxide and zinc sulfates. Amino acid chelates of zinc are the most common form of zinc chelates. Zinc methionine is formed by the 11 molecule combination of zinc ion and methionine amino acid. Methionine is one of the essential amino acids involved in the body's protein, has antioxidant properties, and supports essential fatty acid metabolism. The various benefits of zinc methionine include support and maintenance of cellular health, eye health, skin health, prostate health, hair health, nail health, reproductive health, and digestive health. It also benefits muscle function and nerve functions.Zinc Methionine Chelates Market OverviewSource Secondary Research, Primary Research, MRFR Database and Analyst Review


Zinc Methionine Chelates Market Trends



  • Growing Demand for The Organic and Natural Feed Products


There has been an increased inclination among consumers for organic products that are produced without any synthetic substances. It has been observed that the demand for organic products has grown tremendously in most developed countries worldwide in the past few years. According to MRFR analysis, the global organic products market was valued at USD 104.6 billion in 2019, registering a CAGR of approximately 6.5% from 2020 to 2028. Additionally, animal feed is required to be more nutritious and organic in nature. The natural inclusion of zinc in the minerals helps the animal to increase immunity power, reproduction, and muscle development. Although the huge number of transition metals bizarrely persuades oxidative deterioration of biological macromolecules that includes proteins, lipids, and trace minerals which act as a special dietary enhancement. The organic and natural zinc-based minerals further create importance as it provides a wide range of biological functions in animal and human health. Its presence in the diet helps in antioxidant and immune functionality which maintains and stabilizes operational integrity.


Moreover, the increased global consumption of organic livestock has distinguished the inclined preferences of consumers toward more sustainable and natural products. Organic animal feeding is measured among the potential strategies of feeding wherein it influences the total feed efficacy of the animals. However, there is a lack of commercially available permitted feed ingredients, and the range of the products is inadequate to some extent. Furthermore, the collective consciousness of animal welfare and the need to produce safe and healthy food products has led to the development of enhanced-quality and nutritionally balanced compound feed that caused decreased animal health problems, such as digestive ailments, and an improvement in animal performance, including increased weight gain and improved reproductive performance. According to the studies it has been observed, binding zinc with amino acids thereby improves milk production, growth, reproduction, and overall health status of livestock. Moreover, tapping the opportunities in the growing market, key manufacturers in the industry have been constantly focusing on the launch of innovative products. For instance, in 2021, the Alltech company, one of the major key players in the mineral market launched its organic Bioplex zinc trace mineral in the global market.

Zinc Methionine Chelates Application Insights


The Zinc Methionine Chelates Market data has been bifurcated by application into pharmaceutical & dietary supplements and animal feed. Zinc is one of the most common nutrients which has a vital function in more than 300 enzymes and hormones. Chelated trace minerals are extensively used as an ingredient in the feeds and diets of various animals. Zinc chelates help in better absorption and availability for animals, especially poultry and ruminants. Zinc methionine is a chelated organic mineral that improves the bioavailability of zinc for absorption and aids in growth, reduction of zinc excretion, and environmental pollution. The other significant role of zinc methionine in animal health systems include muscle development, reproduction, immunity, eggshell quality, milk production, and skin & hoof integrity. It also poses antioxidant properties and has reduced antagonistic behaviors compared to inorganic zinc compounds like zinc oxide, zinc carbonates, etc. The growing excessive supplementation of trace minerals in livestock feeding like inorganic compounds and increased environmental pollution are driving the use of chelated forms in animal feed which in turn boosts the growth of the segment. In addition, the growing importance of animal nutrition and feed additives is also expected to drive the growth of the segment in zinc methionine chelates industry during the forecast period.
