D-amino Acid Market – Snapshot

Amino acids are compounds whose molecules encompass amine group (-NH2) and carboxyl group (-COOH). D-amino acid is a class of unnatural amino acids. It is a constituent of natural peptides produced primarily by microorganisms, using the non-ribosomal mechanism of synthesis. D-amino acid is a component of certain peptide antibiotics and is present in walls of certain microorganisms. D-amino acids are chiral form of L-amino acids. They are widely used in pharmaceutical synthesis (medicine and pesticides), food, animal feed, etc. The global D-amino acid market is expected to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period, driven by the increase in demand for D-amino acid in the pharmaceutical industry. The global D-amino acid market was valued at around US$ 150.0 Mn in 2017 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of more than 5.0% from 2018 to 2026.

D-amino acid is primarily used in the production of domestic & synthetic peptides and peptide-based drugs. These D-amino based peptides possess synthetizing characteristics and are used in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and tumors. D-amino based peptides are also used in synthetic peptide anti-pain analgesics and synthetic peptide protease inhibitors in keratotomy. These acids enable early detection of the Alzheimer’s disease. Thus, increase in production of peptides in pharmaceutical applications is projected to boost the demand for D-amino acid. D-amino acid is also employed in synthesis of nicotinamide acetylcholine receptors, calcium channels, sodium channels, anti-epilepsy drugs, and endorphin releasing drugs. High prevalence of chronic diseases and the need to diagnose and treat such diseases in anticipated to augment the demand for d-amino acids during the forecast period. Peptides containing D-amino acids are used as sweeteners in the food & beverages industry. D-amino acid is used in therapeutic agents for atopic dermatitis, skin moisturizers, and wrinkle formation inhibitors. It is also used as skin beautifying agent in the cosmetics industry.

Asia Pacific is a major region of the d-global amino acid market, accounting for substantial share. China is a key producer and consumer of D-amino acid.
