L-Cysteine is a kind of nonessential amino acid which is abstracted from human hair or duck feather using hydrolysis technology. It covers three forms in China: L-cysteine hydrochloride monohydrate, L-cysteine hydrochloride anhydrous and L-cysteine base. L-Cysteine is widely used in food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic industries. Among these applications, food is the largest consumption area. The demand for it in pharmaceuticals also has a fast increase in recent years.
The global consumption for L-cysteine was about 12,000 tonnes in 2012, and the production capacity could meet the demand well at present. China, Germany and Japan are the three largest L-cysteine producers in the world. The technology in Germany and Japan is biological method which is more eco-friendly while much higher production cost compared with China’s hydrolysis method. Though L-cysteine produced in China is more competitive because of its lower price currently and China will still be the major producer in the world in the next few years, biological method will be the trend in L-cysteine’s production and the competition during China, Japan and Germany will be more intense in the future.

China position: As the largest L-cysteine producer in the world, China has an important position in the global market, which benefits from its relatively loose environmental requirement and ample raw materials. The production situation in China can directly affect the supply of L-cysteine and its downstream products in the world. In 2012, it produced about 7,700 tonnes of L-cysteine and about 85% of them were exported to Southeast Asia, the US, Europe, etc.
Purpose of report: To clearly describe the market of L-cysteine i
