Key Market Trends

Increasing Consumption of Dietary Supplements

Protein remains on the top position when it comes to dietary supplements; and amino acids are known to be building blocks of protein formation. Amino acids have been found to have multiple functional benefits in human nutrition. For example,  glycine has been found to improve sleep quality; and leucine for its role in muscle protein synthesis, thus, contributing to longer and healthy life expectancy in the elderly population. The increase in international sporting events has also led to increased attention on the physiological effects of amino acids (BCAAs) on muscles, which is likely to offer a potential opportunity to amino acid ingredient manufacturers.
