L-Lysine Price Trend

Procurement Resource provides latest prices of L-Lysine. Each price database is tied to a user-friendly graphing tool dating back to 2014, which provides a range of functionalities: configuration of price series over user defined time period; comparison of product movements across countries; customisation of price currencies and unit; extraction of price data as excel files to be used offline.

There was a scarcity of L-lysine in the fourth quarter of 2021. Numerous factors led to the L-lysine scarcity, ranging from transportation restrictions to production difficulties. ADM, a food processing company based in the United States, said earlier this year that it would discontinue production of dried lysine in the United States. As a result, Chinese firms now dominate the manufacture of L-lysine.

Spot L-lysine prices doubled and tripled for those not covered by contracts. Numerous producers attempted to purchase additional L-lysine on the open market, but the price was significantly higher, restricting availability for those on contracts. Due to the diet adjustments necessary to address the L-lysine deficiency, swine producers were forced to use significantly more soybean meal and significantly less maize.

The primary factors driving higher lysine/feed additive prices in general include stringent COVID-19 shutdown regulations in various countries, disruptions in L-lysine import and export activity, and worldwide shipping concerns.
