The global amino acids market reached a volume of 9.8 Million Tons in 2020. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and form a significant part of both animal and human nutrition. In the human body, they are required for vital processes such as the synthesis of neurotransmitters and hormones. Amino acids are found in abundance in red meat, seafood, eggs, dairy products, quinoa and soy products. They are beneficial for strengthening the immune system, fighting arthritis and cancer, and treating tinnitus and rectal diseases. Nowadays, the demand for amino acids is rising as they aid in improving conditions like depression, sleep disorders, premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), smoking cessation, bruxism and attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Rising health-consciousness among consumers has increased the demand for nutritious foods. This has prompted food and beverage manufacturers to introduce products fortified with essential nutrients, such as amino acids, thereby leading to an increase in their demand. In addition, bodybuilders and athletes are increasingly preferring protein-rich products to enhance their performance and improve muscle development. Some of these products include sports supplements, such as energy drinks, nutrition bars, low carbohydrate foods and nutrition supplements. Further, amino acids are used in animal feed to meet the protein requirements of the animals. Moreover, constant developments in the field of biotechnology have played a significant role in the production of proteinogenic amino acids, which are incorporated into proteins during translation. Looking forward, the analyst expects the global amino acids market to reach a volume of 13.10 Million Tons by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.00% during 2021-2026.
