Growth is largely fueled by the increasing demand from developing countries in Asia Pacific and Europe due to their increasing consumption of meat for a protein rich diet. The large population and higher levels of income in these countries adds on to the Methionine market. The increase in genetic technologies which increases the weight of broilers, demand for a broader food portfolio particularly in proteins, and Eco friendly means of extracting Methionine adds to the growth of the market.
