Global Zinc Methionine Chelates Market Drivers:

  • Rising consumer awareness regarding the nutritional requirements and deficiencies in animals

The main raw materials used in the manufacture of chelates are trace minerals such as zinc and amino acids. +Zinc is a common mineral found in animal feed. It aids in protein synthesis and is essential in improving the characteristics of defensive enzymes. Additionally, growing consumer awareness of food safety and quality escalates the need for healthier and safer animal feed formulations. According to the National Institute of Health, chelated trace minerals (CTM) in livestock nutrition is an expanding research area with a focus on the health and quality of animal products. Thus, driving demand for the global zinc methionine chelates market.



  • Rising popularity of functional beverages and foods

The rising popularity of zinc methionine chelates in functional beverages and foods. Increasing use of zinc methionine chelates in the food and beverage industry. Chelation is the process of attaching minerals like zinc to organic compounds like amino acids like methionine. This technique can improve the mineral's bioavailability, making it easier for the body to absorb and utilize. Furthermore, Zinc is an essential micronutrient and is widely used in animal diet foods. This increasing popularity and demand affect the growth of the global market in over forecast period.



  • High cost of zinc methionine chelates

The increasing cost of zinc methionine chelates is due to the increasing cost of the raw material and production cost. The high cost associated with chelated mineral supplements compared to inorganic zinc sources. In addition, manufacturing and transportation of the zinc methionine chelate expensive than the others. Furthermore, chelated minerals are created through a chelation process in which the mineral, in this case zinc, is bonded to an organic molecule such as methionine. These factors affecting the growth of the global market.
