A number of factors are responsible for inadequate presence of protein in the human body, such as pollution caused by fossil fuels and the presence of fertilisers and pesticides in crops. As a result of this, health-conscious consumers look for protein-rich foods, prompting the manufacturers to introduce products fortified with amino acids. Growing pharmaceutical industry is also influencing the demand for amino acids since it acts as a buffering agent in numerous products. Moreover, a growing economy has boosted both the production and consumption of meat which is anticipated to fuel the demand for amino acid-based animal feed in the future. Owing to these factors, the market is expected to reach a volume of 10.1 Million Tons by 2022, growing at a CAGR of around 5%.
