China’s BCAAs industry keeps increasing in production and demand

As one kind of amino acids with high added value, BCAAs (Branched-Chain Amino Acids) consist of three types of amino acids, namely leucine, isoleucine and valine. BCAAs are widely used as the dietary supplement among the people involved in bodybuilding and athletics, mainly for accelerating human’s muscle anabolism.

In CCM’s latest market report, Market Research of BCAAs in China, we can see the general production situation of China's BCAAs industry during 2010–2012. As a large producer of amino acids worldwide, China's BCAAs total output in 2012 reached about 4,865 tonnes, accounting for more than two thirds of the global output. At the same time, there are many new projects and expansion projects for BCAAs under construction in China.

In addition to reviewing the production situation of China’s BCAAs industry, CCM’s report also focuses on four parts, namely market prices, demand situation, production technology, and analysis of domestic key producers.

Through the report, we can get both the current market prices of valine, leucine, and isoleucine during Jan.June 2013. The report also reveals the historical market prices of these three products during 2009–2012.

As for the demand situation, the domestic demand for BCAAs is relatively small at present, though China has been engaged in BCAAs business for years. In fact, most of the BCAAs produced in China are exported to developed countries, especially those in Europe and America. In the report, CCM will give a detailed introduction to the demand situation of China’s BCAAs during 2010–2012, particularly the consumption in the food industry (e.g. dietary supplement, functional food, drinks and oral drugs, etc.) and non-food industry, like pharmaceutical injection, also a forecast on demand from 2013 to 2017 is provided.

However, compared with those imported BCAAs from overseas markets, China’s BCAAs are in an inferior position, due to China’s BCAAs are still unsteady in quality. But we can see that the production technology of China’s BCAAs has been keeping improved in recent years. According to CCM’s report, at present, there are many BCAAs producers in China, such as Shine Star (Hubei) Biological Engineering Co., Ltd., Meihua Holdings Group Co., Ltd., Yichang Sanxia Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., Fufeng Group Co., Ltd., etc. These producers widely utilize fermentation method in the production of isoleucine and valine, while extraction method is playing a dominant role in the production of leucine. To help readers better understand the competitiveness of these producers, CCM will also introduce their financial situation and analyze their production costs of BCAAs.
