D-Amino Acids: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn - D-amino acids are increasingly being used in a variety of applications including in the production of pharmaceuticals and fine chemicals, as well as in research studies. Pharmaceutical and industrial applications are the principal contributors of growth in the market worldwide. D-amino acids serve as an essential building block in the production of pharmaceuticals and fine chemicals. Annually, several tons of D-amino acids are produced to meet demand from the pharmaceutical industry. Aging world population is driving strong demand for dietary and pharmaceutical supplements, which in turn is creating robust opportunities for D-amino acids. Shifting focus of the pharmaceutical industry towards peptide research is generating demand for pharmaceutical intermediates such as D-amino acids for drug development. Increase in research and development activities over the coming years will drive significant demand for D-amino acids. D-amino acids are also finding increased use in food flavorants, artificial sweeteners, deodorants and insecticides.

As stated by the new market research report on D-Amino Acids, Europe represents the largest market worldwide. Growth in the region slowed down in recent years due to the persistent decline in spending in Italy, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, and Greece. Characterized by huge population, burgeoning economies, increasing income levels, rising living standards, and robust pharmaceutical industry, developing regions such as Asia-Pacific and Latin America are forecast to emerge as rapidly growing markets for D-Amino acids in the coming years. In Asia-Pacific growth is led by China, given the abundance of low-cost raw materials and chemical intermediates, essential for the manufacture of D-amino acids in the country. Asia-Pacific is projected to grow at a compounded annual rate of 12.6% over the analysis period.

Pharmaceutical applications dominate the global market. D-amino acids, such as D-Cysteine and D-Serine are widely used in the production of anticancer agents such as goserelin and antibiotics such as penicillin.

Major players covered in the report include Adisseo France S.A.S, Ajinomoto Co. Inc., AnaSpec Inc., Evonik Industries AG, IRIS Biotech GmbH, LifeSpan Biosciences Inc., Sekisui Medical Co. Ltd., Shanghai Hanhong Chemical Co. Ltd., Sigma-Aldrich Corporation, TCI America Inc., and Tocris Bioscience among others.
