CCM Data & Primary Intelligence Description: Nowadays, feed grade methionine is mainly produced in Belgium, Japan, France, the US and so on, and four companies monopolize the production and technology in the world. Then what is the supply and demand situation in the world? China is a great consumer of feed grade methionine, but there is no domestic feed grade methionine producer yet. All feed grade methionine needed relies on import. Will the domestic production of feed grade methionine be realized or not in the future? Since 2008, there were three important feed grade methionine projects in China, namely BlueStar methionine‘s project, Unis Chemical‘s methionine project and Dalian Sumitomo‘s methionine project. What are the details of the three projects? Apart from monopoly of production and technology of feed grade methionine, the four foreign producers also control its price. But a breakthrough is coming - one of Chinese producers is going to sell its own methionine in 2010. Which producer is it? What are the potential opportunities for other foreign and Chinese investors? The major consumption field of feed grade methionine is feed industry in China, accounting for 96.94% of total consumption in 2009. However, the consumption pattern changed little in 2009 compared with the past few years. What is the change? What is the future consumption trend of feed grade methionine in China? The 2010 edition combines CCM’s 9-year expertise in market research of feed grade methionine. What is covered in this report? - With detailed description and smart analysis of China’s feed grade methionine industry, future investment opportunities may be found in the report or enlightened after reading the report. - With introduction to production projects of feed grade methionine, a clear picture of competitive landscape within the industry is available especially for foreign investors. - Future forecast on China’s feed grade methionine industry. - The import and export analysis.
