Growth Factors

 Growing consumer awareness regarding product benefits, along with increasing demand from end-use industries such as pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, and animal feed, is projected to drive the market over the forecast period.

The market is witnessing a high growth owing to a rising health-conscious consumer base, increasing number of product launches consisting of L-carnitine, and increasing demand from the animal feed industry.

L-carnitine and its derivatives are used for numerous applications including male infertility, kidney treatment, cardiovascular diseases, weight reduction, and bone mass. It is also used in various products including animal feed, health supplements, functional drinks, medicines, and other nutraceutical products.

By Process Analysis

The bioprocess segment held the market and dominated for the highest revenue share of over 77.0% in 2020. Rising commercial demand for L-carnitine has compelled the manufacturers to improve their processes to upsurge production yield.

The most conventional process used to produce L-carnitine with the best yield is a bioprocess based on achiral precursors’ biotransformation such as γ-butyrobetaine, crotonobetaine, and 3-dehydrocarnitine, or racemic mixtures such as D, L-carnitinamide, D, L-acyl carnitine, and D, L-carnitine.

The chemical synthesis process is slowly gaining momentum owing to its ability to produce L-carnitine on an industrial scale. There are several chemical procedures available for the synthesis of L-carnitine namely asymmetric synthesis, chemical multi-step racemization, enzymatic techniques, resolution through diastereomeric derivatives, and synthesis using chiral materials.

By Product Analysis

The food and pharmaceutical grade segment held the market and dominated for the highest revenue share of more than 79.0% in 2020. Food and pharmaceutical grade L-carnitine is primarily used for human consumption for numerous applications including healthy aging, male fertility, infant nutrition, weight management, and post-exercise recovery.

Though the product is found naturally in certain foods including meat, avocado, and beans, a certain level of L-carnitine is needed to maintain its adequate level in the body depending upon age, diet, and other factors. The product is consumed through various routes including oral consumption through nutritional supplements, medicines, functional food and beverages, and injections.

By Application Analysis

The healthcare products dominated the market and dominated for the highest revenue share of more than 35.0% in 2020. L-carnitine is widely used in numerous healthcare products including supplements for weight loss and enhanced stamina.

With the growing consumption of dietary supplements due to the rising prevalence of obesity, increasing consumer awareness regarding personal health and wellbeing, changing lifestyle, and growing spending capacity, the dietary supplement market is expected to reach USD 272.4 billion by 2028.

Supplementation of L-carnitine in the diet of animals significantly improves their body weight gain, feed intake, and feed conversion in broiler chicken. Supplementation of L-carnitine in feed improves energy utilization and fatty acid and therefore, live weight gain and feed conversion efficiency may be improved in poultry.

By Regional Analysis

 North America dominated the L-carnitine market and accounted for the largest revenue share of over 38.0% in 2020. Over the past decade, the functional food and beverages industry has seen a huge growth in North America with the expansion of a health-conscious consumer base in the region.

L-carnitine has proved to be an essential component for the treatment and prevention of various ailments, which has made it an attractive functional food and beverage ingredient. The increased level of energy and stamina including other health benefits has made consumers more biased toward functional food and beverages inclusive of L-carnitine.

The nutraceutical industry in Europe is expected to grow due to an increase in the purchase of supplements as a preventive approach to health concerns. In addition, consumers prefer herbal products over pharmaceuticals due to the latter’s side effects.
