*Commonly referred to in China as liquid methionine is methionine hydroxyl analogue, a liquid source of supplemental methionine.
 
 
Market analysis
 
Sales of poultry feed remained limited although broiler prices have rebounded from historic lows. Usages of methionine failed to increase meaningfully, holding prices soft as a result.
 
Meanwhile, there was news that one local producer has scheduled for two weeks routine maintenance starting mid-March. 
 
In Europe, prices of methionine for Q2 2017 deliveries were in the range of EUR2.45-2.50/kg.
 
 
Market forecast
 
Methionine market is expected to stay weak due to abundant availability. However, the bird flu epidemic has shown early signs of abating. Should the poultry sector recover strong from the disease outbreak, methionine prices are likely to rebound from current low levels amid strengthened demand.
