DL Methionine Price Trend

The demand for DL-Methionine increased as a result of its increased demand in aquafeed, as well as an increase in global demand for fish meat. However, poultry is the main consumer of DL-Methionine because it avoids feathering problems caused by a shortage of vital nutrients in birds. Animal feed was positioned to increase global use of DL-Methionine throughout the year 2021, as animals are unable to manufacture methionine on their own.The price of ammonia, a key feedstock, in the North American region climbed dramatically in the fourth quarter of 2021, owing to a considerable increase in the commodity's value as a result of a global nitrogen fertiliser shortagem impacting DL-methionine prices as well. In December, the assessed value of ammonia FOB New Orleans (USA) pricing reached an all-time high of 1177 USD/MT. Ammonia supplies were sluggish in the quarter as a result of the reduced availability of hydrogen and nitrogen in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida.
