BCAA Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The global branched-chain amino acid market size is estimated to witness a CAGR of 13.2% from 2024 to 2029. Increasing incidences of various health disorders are key driving factors for the BCCA market to grow eventually.

Current Scenario of the BCAA Market

An amino acid with a branch of the aliphatic side chain is known as a branched-chain amino acid. The branched-chain amino acid plays a vital role in the management of obesity by oxidation of fatty acid. Also, the metabolism of this compound will maintain immune systems and look over the brain's functionalities. These are highly essential for humans as nearly 35% of the amino acids are used in muscle proteins, whereas, for animals, it is 40%. In general, amino acids are oxidized in the liver, while branched-chain amino acids will look after the skeletal muscles and peripheral tissues.

Due to this, BCCAs have become a necessary ingredient to include in their sports supplements for fitness and sports enthusiasts and this trend is likely to continue in the coming years and drive market growth.

The growing demand for plant-based BCAA supplements, rising awareness among the people regarding the benefits of BCAAs and increasing body of research supporting the health benefits of BCAAs favor the market’s growth rate. In addition, factors such as the growing number of participants in the worldwide market, rising demand for functional foods such as energy bars and protein shakes, increasing disposable income and the growing availability of BCAA supplements on e-commerce platforms fuel the market growth. Furthermore, the growing usage of BCAA products in the healthcare industry is another notable factor contributing to the market’s growth rate. Especially, BCAA products are being used to support patients with certain medical conditions, support muscle mass in patients with liver disease, or support recovery after surgery.

MARKET RESTRAINTS

The high cost of BCAAs compared to other supplements is one of the significant factors hampering the market growth. Due to these products, the adoption of these supplements in being limited and consumers are looking for other cost-effective options. The presence of alternative supplements such as whey protein and creatine is another notable factor inhibiting the growth rate of the market. Poor awareness among people regarding the potential benefits of BCAAs and safety concerns are further hindering market growth. BCAAs can result in side effects when consumed in an increased quantity such as gastrointestinal issues. 

Impact Of COVID-19 On The Global Branched-Chain Amino Acids Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown a mixed impact on the BCAA market growth during the initial days of the pandemic timeline. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the supply chains were hampered worldwide and resulting in the decreased availability of BCAA products to consumers and this resulted negatively in market growth. In addition, manufacturing activities were hampered due to the shortage of raw materials, lockdowns and the temporary shutdown of manufacturing facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic and hampered the market’s growth rate. Furthermore, the closure of gyms and fitness centers during lockdowns and restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus among people resulted in the reduced consumption of BCAA supplements by consumers and showed a negative impact on the market growth. Likewise, the worldwide BCAA market has experienced an unfavorable impact from the COVID-19 pandemic. On the other hand, the COVID-19 pandemic has also boosted the demand for BCAA products as the awareness among people regarding the importance of maintaining good health and immunity has increased. In addition, the usage of online channels to purchase consumer products has grown significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic timeline including BCAA products. These factors have shown a favorable impact on the BCAA market during the COVID-19 pandemic.
