Market Overview

North America feed amino acid market is projected to register a CAGR of 3.1% over the forecast period (2020-2025). Amino acids are an important additive to enhance the quality and productivity of animal products and consequently for the growing meat industry, which is driven by the increasing demand for animal-derived protein, increasing awareness among people toward safety and quality of meat, and recent disease outbreaks in livestock. Certain naturally occurring amino acids are limited in growing animals and since they are indispensable for life processes, growers depend on external sources. Amino acids have been used in animal feeds for many decades now and their contribution to animal growth is indispensable. Leading companies have been investing in R&D for new innovations, breakthroughs, better cost management, and production techniques for effective feed to meat conversion in the amino acid markets of the region.

Key Market Trends

Increasing Production of Animal Meat

Production of meat has been increasing in keeping with the high demand for animal protein in the region. The health-conscious American population created a demand for higher quality meat from the processing industries owing to increased safety concerns. Considerable growth in the industrial production of livestock was witnessed in the region in order to meet the increased demand for meat. The food habits and eating patterns have shifted from cereal and vegetable-based to more meat protein-based currently. Amino acids in animal feeds are vital and are used extensively across the region. Also, with progress in biotechnology, the cost of production of each amino acid has been significantly reduced, which has been one of the key factors in the expansion of the use of amino acids in animal feed. Thus, this increasing popularity towards animal protein in the region is likely to drive the market of feed amino acids during the forecast period.
