*Commonly referred to in China as liquid methionine is methionine hydroxyl analogue, a liquid source of supplemental methionine.
 
 
Market analysis
 
A weak renminbi resulted in lower imports of methionine on the one hand, and stimulated export sales on the other hand. Consequently, methionine availability tightened in China, prompting producers to lift prices over the week even as domestic demand remained slow.
 
In Europe, prices of China-produced methionine stayed firm at EUR2.10/kg.
 
 
Market forecast
 
Prices of methionine are likely to strengthen further amid tight supplies. Moreover, feed producers, who have intentionally held inventories low, are expected to build stocks amid concerns of supply shortages.
