Based on product, the North America market is segmented into encapsulated methionine, sulfate-based products, chromium propionate, tribasic copper chloride and DCAD products. Encapsulated methionine is anticipated to register sales over 3.5 kilo tons in 2019. Methionine in encapsulated form is widely used as an excellent source of rumen bypass and intestinally released methionine for ruminant diets. It is an essential amino acid used as a building block for proteins, thus acting as a fundamental element to the health and wellness of the dairy cattle and beef cattle.

Feedstuffs, dietary intakes and forages are extremely variable in the amount of metabolizable methionine supplied, which can negatively impact milk and milk component production. To overcome this, encapsulated methionine is being increasingly used by feed processors as it combines ruminal escape with high intestinal digestibility, resulting in one of the most cost-effective sources of methionine for dairy cattle and beef cattle. The product also helps to optimize production and allow for greater flexibility when formulating rations.
