Valine Price Trend for the Q1 of 2024


Valine prices in the Asian market were found to be oscillating within a narrow range throughout the said period of Q1’24. The Chinese market was struggling with oversupply especially in the early months of the quarter, so the prices mostly exuded borderline stagnancy. Dedicated efforts in the previous year resulted in a robust growth of valine production in the country. The government also supported fermentation feed prices. However, the exceeding of production volumes disproportionally to the market demands created an issue for suppliers.

Stability in the exchange rates of Chinese Yuan with US Dollars and European Euros also held the prices in place during the said period. In the Indian market the valine prices were found to be tottering moderately. Easy and cheap availability of the feedstock corn starch and other sugary materials helped sustain the prices lowly in the Indian market. Even though the downstream demands from animal feed producers and nutraceutical sectors inclined marginally, the supplies were too rampant to balance that. Overall, muted market sentiments were witnessed in Q1’24.


The market situation for valine in the European market was not much different from the Asian markets. The prices were found to be oscillating here as well. Evonik recorded major losses in its amino acid, particularly the valine sector last year. So, the company reconsidered production this year and tried to balance the supply and demand equation better.

Even though the other upstream factors like the energy, production, and transportation costs were undergoing major inclinations, the downstream demands maintained the underwhelming trajectory and kept dialling down the market prices in the region during the said period.

North America

The American valine market also could not behave in any different manner than other global markets. Supplies were exceeding demands in both domestic and international markets. The sluggishness of the Chinese market was especially influential. The market driving factors did not change much over the discussed period of time, so the prices were also still wavering following the patterns of the previous quarter. Overall, a weak performance was observed for valine during the said span.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, not much change is anticipated in the coming quarter for the valine price trend. The supply and demand dynamic are still distraught and will take some time to balance.

In Asian countries, the export rates were impacted by a notable decline in foreign demand. Valine prices were adversely impacted by sluggish procurement and trade concerns with the US, even with initial attempts to bring costs back to pre-COVID levels. The manufacture of feed additives, including valine, was restructured in response to the financial difficulties faced by the animal nutrition industry. The pharma and food industries' tepid demand further negatively affected the upward trend in valine pricing.


In European countries, during the fourth quarter of 2023, Houthi strikes on cargo from the Red Sea caused interruptions to the European trading system. The valine market was affected in a cascading manner, resulting in a significant disruption in manufacturing cycles and delays in the supply of raw materials.

The problem of excess supply for valine pricing was exacerbated by declining shipments from Europe. The region's economic growth was negatively impacted by the rising tensions, which also raised the cost of producing energy and slowed the rise in valine prices.

North America

The last quarter of 2023 saw an increase in valine pricing in the US due to balanced market availability of the amino acid and more inquiries. Although there was a brief downturn in the feed business, there has been a noticeable rebound since Q4 started, fueled by customers' growing need for high-protein foods. Prices for valine benefited from this upward trend, which continued into the holiday season. Overall, the North American valine market had a strong fourth quarter.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Valine are estimated to see some uncertainties due to the rise in fluctuations in the downstream food and feed additives industries.

Valine Price Trend for the July - September of 2023


The Asian countries faced significant decline in the valine price trend. The market dynamics were challenged by the shifting consumer preference that hampered the demand dynamics of valine industries. The economic downturn and financial challenges being faced by the Asian countries and sluggish trading activities had a negative effect on the valine prices.

In addition to the domestic market, the overseas industries also presented only feeble demand that forced the traders to lower their price quotations. The last month brought some signs of relief as the downstream industries witnessed slight improvement in their market activities and helped in the rise in the valine price graph.


The European consumers of valine seemed reluctant to place orders in bulk as the region seemed to be undergoing a period of stress due to rising inflationary pressure. A smaller number of inquiries kept the valine price graph trajectory in the negative zone. However, the last month worked in favor of valine price trend as the suppliers raised their price quotations that, along with healthy demand accelerated the inclining trajectory of valine prices. Additionally, the influx of expensive imports also played a significant role in raising the valine price trend.

North America

The economic uncertainties dictated the valine price trend in the third quarter of 2023. The instability in the financial markets lowered the purchasing potential of customers. The trading activities slid, and the stockpiles of valine inclined exponentially, raising the concerns of both traders and manufacturers. Further, the US economy underwent a period of crisis, making it difficult for the valine price trend to grow.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price trend of Valine are estimated to experience downfall as the end-user pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and other sectors are estimated to present low demand for valine.
