The global market for methionine is expected to grow with growing meat consumption around the world. One of the major factors which are driving the global market for methionine is increasing meat consumption, primarily by the increasing population of developing countries such as China, India, and Brazil etc. Developed economies such as the U.S. and Western Europe are considered to be mature markets and are expected to grow at a lower rate compared to developing countries.  Methionine is an amino acid that acts as a building block to form proteins. It is also used for increasing the quantity of lean meat. Methionine has gradually replaced the market for fish powder as it is more efficient than fish powder.

China is one of the biggest manufacturers of animal feed in the world and the country is also one of the biggest consumers of methionine which is used as a supplement for piglets and ruminants.  The growth of the middle class population in many countries across the world is also expanding the global market for methionine. However, the volatility in raw material prices and the rising energy prices, which have a direct impact on the overall production cost, are acting as the major factors hindering the market growth.
