The application of threonine acids is expected to grow in cosmetics over the forecast period.
On the basis of product type, L-threonine is expected to drive the market owing to its property to protect digestive tract, tissue development and in endogenous secretions. L-threonine acids are the essential components of collagen, elastin and enamel proteins owing to this the manufacturers are turning to use threonine is cosmetics, personal care and oral care products. The plant-based threonine is expected to grow rapidly over the forecast period due to its economical production capacity, which is also high in carbohydrates and can reduce cholesterol levels and help in the prevention of cancer.
The threonine market is witnessing growth in animal feed industry due to rising demand for multi-functional supplements in livestock nutrition. The manufacturers are investing to develop innovative products, advanced technology due to increasing consumption in dietary supplements. An inappropriate amount of threonine acids may lead to building up of fats in the liver which can cause liver failure. Therefore stringent regulation for food safety is expected to hamper the growth of threonine market.
Rising feed prices and increasing demand for high amino acid feed is opportunistic for manufacturers to use threonine in animal feed and develop new products. Increase in demand for meat products promise the requisite opportunities for the industry participants.
