Histidine Market Outlook
Histidine is an essential amino acid that is not produced by the human body and consumed through food or supplements, for the biosynthesis of proteins inside the body. Histidine-rich food includes meat, dairy products, whole grains, and soy. Histidine is essential for both animals and humans for the growth and development in their infant stages. However, in later stages, it is an active element involved in triggering immune reactions. In patients with defective metabolism, food sources are not enough and hence histidine is consumed through supplements or medicine. Apart from food, histidine is also used in cosmetic products as a fragrance and hair conditioning ingredient. A rise in the health and fitness market and sports nutrition sector has also led to the rise in the consumption of histidine based supplements. Histidine market is expected to witness a concurrent growth along with the health supplements and nutraceuticals.

Demand in Animal Feed Industry Drives Demand for Histidine Market
The histidine market is in the growth phase and has witnessed a growing number of manufacturers. Histidine’s potential as a nutritional element for cultivable fish species is driving the growth of the market across the globe. The rising demand for salmon farming (which is an important fishmeal for cultivating high-quality aquatic species), is encouraging manufacturers to satiate the demand by supplying histidine. Histidine has exhibited tremendous potential to act as an anti-residue agent in hair care products. There have been increasing product launches which incorporate histidine within them. The research & development divisions of some of the key cosmetic products manufacturers have turned their focus on histidine for its valuable benefits. For instance, in January 2017, the company Proctor & Gamble, which manufactures hair care and cosmetic products formulated the ingredient containing histidine and fermented corn and launched a new product line in its shampoos category- Herbal Essentials. New players in the industry are strategizing to offer histidine at lower prices than what the established players are offering, to gain a larger market share in the global histidine market. However, end-use consumers are looking for clean-label ingredients, that is, natural ingredients in their products and hence, synthetic based food supplements such as histidine food supplements may suffer a negative impact due to this trend. Histidine also results in the formation of histamine in fish and edible fish products which is the cause of food poisoning. Such negative properties may be a hindrance for the growth of the market.

Histidine Market: Regional Analysis
By production volume, histidine production is largely concentrated in Japan. This is also attributed to Japan’s leading position in the amino-acid fermentation technology and an increasing number of patents aimed at developing advanced ingredients derived from natural sources. In terms of consumption, Asia occupies a major share in the histidine market, followed by Europe. In terms of growth, China and ASEAN are expected to exhibit high growth over the forecast period in the histidine market. Growth in the Japanese histidine market may be hindered due to fluctuations in the foreign exchange rates and slowing economic growth of Japan. Hence, expanding manufacturing plants in regions with high demand is a good opportunity for Japan.
