The Global Lysine Market is expected to reach USD 6.96 billion by 2020. Lysine Market demand is expected to
witness a steady growth on account of its increasing usage in the manufacturing of animal feed. Lysine is an
organic compound with a chemical formula C6H14N2O2. It is an alpha amino acid and is mostly used in the
biosynthesis of proteins. Human body cannot synthesize lysine and therefore it is mostly obtained through diet.
Lysine is injected in consumed meat to provide necessary nutrients. Usage of lysine as a protein synthesizer in
animal feed is a major application driving the overall demand. This compound is used by the cattle breeding
industry to improve the protein content in beef, chicken and egg. There has been a significant demand for
processed meat with high protein content which in turn has propelled the usage of lysine in animal husbandry
and cattle breeding.
Further, its application as an herbal supplement has been driving the market demand in recent years. Hectic
lifestyle and increasing consumer awareness has created a trend of protein supplement consumption. These
supplements are known to improve muscle growth and plays an important role in calcium absorption. Lysine is
plays a major role in diet for people recovering from injuries. Their intake for improving body enzymes and
antibodies is expected to provide great opportunities in the near future. Government regulations and safety
related to this organic compound offers a major challenge for the overall industry growth. The U.S food and
drug administration considers this compound as generally recognized as safe (GRAS). There are no significant
regulatory standards for the usage of lysine as an herbal supplement or for medicinal uses.
