During the third quarter, the L-lysine prices suffered from the exponential rise in the level of inventories as the production rates exceeded the demand from the downstream industries across the globe. The dimmed consumer sentiments during this phase of the year were a consequence of significant avalanches in the economic recovery of Asian and European countries along with North America. However, a wave of transition in the market was observed during the end months of the last quarter.

The onset of winter holidays slowed the production activities, and on account of the festive season in Asian countries, the demand for L-lysine grew, although slowly. This helped in achieving a market equilibrium and stabilizing the L-lysine price trend.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price of L-lysine is expected to showcase a slight reduction as the oscillations in the downstream markets hint towards limited rates of procurement of the commodity.

L-Lysine Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

L-lysine is one of the essential amino acids that is produced inside our body, so commercial production requires fermentation with L-Lysine-producing bacteria. So, the prices primarily depend on the source fermentation materials like starch, sugar molasses, etc., and on the downstream demands from the pharma and cigarette manufacturing sectors.

In the first half of 2023, the L-Lysine prices experienced mixed price patterns throughout. The market started slowly in Asia but soon picked up in the middle of Q1 and had a moderate run after that, whereas the European L-Lysine market was mostly stable during the whole time with good supply–demand dynamics. In the American region, however, the market was observed to be mostly weak, with some exceptions.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, because of uncertainties in the varied factors controlling the L-Lysine market, the prices are likely to fluctuate in the upcoming months as well.
