Tryptophan showcased a depreciating market sentiment throughout the first quarter of 2023. The dynamics of supply and demand in the global market, which are steady, sustain the prices for Tryptophan. The main factors driving the price trajectory are feedstock Pork and Soyabean meal, which were also projected to impact the Tryptophan market environment in Q1 2023.

In the Chinese provinces, the demand for terminal meat was constrained at the end of the year, the domestic Pork market's supply was low, and the large-scale breeding market was still growing. Strong market supply and low demand put pressure on the price of domestic pork, which resulted in a decline in the average pig price, which supported the depreciating prices trajectory for Tryptophan. On the first day of the Lunar new year, domestic meat market demand remained weak—farmers' plans to sell their Pigs after the New Year's holiday did not change. The number of domestic Porks for sale kept growing. The price of domestic Porks remained low due to the pressure of a big market supply and insufficient demand. Also, During the Spring Festival, the domestic Pork market trade stopped. In March, the supporting role of reluctant selling and price supporting on domestic Pork prices gradually weakened. Because of the continuous decline in terminal meat market demand, slaughtering firms' desire to acquire at a cheaper price had not changed, and porks were still sold into the market. March saw a gradual decline in the price-supporting effects of reluctant selling and price support on domestic Pork prices. Pigs continued to be sold into the market because slaughtering businesses still intended to buy at a discount due to the terminal meat market's persistent decline in demand.

Furthermore, the Soybean meal market also influenced the market situation for Tryptophan. The following are the main causes of ongoing fluctuation and decline in the market for soybean meal as the supply of soybean meal improved, and more imported soybeans were being used as raw materials. Also, On the demand side, the feed industry's demand fell, and soybean meal demand was weak, which kept the Tryptophan market feeble. The quantity of imported soybeans entering ports has been rising since February. The stock of soybean meal has increased since the middle of February. Brazil's soybean harvest is about to begin in the production region, and an increase in production is now inevitable. While Dalian soybean meal futures are generally weak, the raw material soybean supply is largely loose. The spot price of soybean meal had been fluctuating downward since February, falling more than one month. This all affected the price trajectory for the Tryptophan market in the Chinese provinces.

The price of Tryptophan is expected to increase in the upcoming months, according to ChemAnalyst. The trend in Tryptophan pricing is anticipated to be impacted by the price increase of Pork and soybean meal. Also, the increased production is likely to keep the Tryptophan market situation favorable.
