Global 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) market is expected to grow owing to increasing stress levels in individuals on account of hormonal changes and improper diet resulting in decrease of serotonin level over the forecast period. Increasing anti-depressants demand due to growing prevalence of anxiety, induced loss of appetite and pain sensation is anticipated to propel 5-HTP market demand over the next six years. Irregular supply and fluctuating raw material prices are expected to act as a restraint for the market growth. In addition, stringent government regulations and lack of awareness among end users is anticipated to pose a challenge for 5-HTP market participants. Furthermore, existing side effects of 5-HTP including stomach pain, heartburn, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, muscle problems and drowsiness is estimated to hinder market growth. Increasing use of eco-friendly 5-HTP as a substitute for chemically synthesized tryptophan is expected to fuel market growth over the forecast period. In addition, R&D in genetic components is expected to cater to market growth opportunities.
North America was the largest consumer for 5-HTP over the past five years followed by Europe and Asia Pacific. Asia Pacific is expected to witness high growth in terms of consumption and production of 5-HTP owing to emergence of numerous small and medium sized manufacturers over the forecast period. Furthermore, changing lifestyle has led to huge capacity expansions in Asia Pacific. Technological advancements in emerging economies such as India and China have potential growth opportunities; although unfavorable drug regulations and lack of awareness could pose challenges to the market demand. Increasing applications in pharmaceuticals, food & beverage and dietary supplements are estimated to augment market growth over the next six years. Dietary supplements are expected to witness swift growth owing to increasing demand for artificial body nutrients. Increasing consumption of 5-HTP for treatment of insomnia, anxiety, depression, fibromyalgia, migraine, binge eating associated with obesity, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), premenstrual syndrome (PMS), premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), Parkinson's disease and seizure disorder is anticipated to have positive impact on the market share.
