*Commonly referred to in China as liquid methionine is methionine hydroxyl analogue, a liquid source of supplemental methionine.
 
 
Market analysis
 
Trade was light as most feed millers have halted operation. Traders and producers held prices unchanged in view of weak sales even if prices were lower.
 
During December, China exported 4,321 tonnes of methionine, plunging 25% on-month. Imports increase 3.7% to 13,254 tonnes for the month.
 
In Europe, prices of methionine for 2017 Q1 deliveries slid to the range of EUR2.32-2.40/kg.
 
 
Market forecast
 
Methionine market will be under pressure after the festive holidays as demand for feed will fall to annual low levels. Moreover, poultry markets will continue to underperform due to the bird flu epidemic, hence curtailing the sales of methionine.
