6 Dec 2018 – The ****** 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.
