Phenylethylamine Market Size, Industry Growth, Sales Revenue, COVID-19 Market Scenario, Opportunity, and Industry Expansion Strategies to 2027

The global phenylethylamine market is expected to be valued at USD 723.7 million in 2027 from USD 516.8 millionin 2019, registering a CAGR of 4.2% through the forecast period. Phenethylamine is an organic compound and a natural monoamine that acts as a stimulant in the central nervous system of humans, often emulating the effects of epinephrine, dopamine, and norepinephrine. It is usually consumed to enhance athletic performance, trigger weight loss, reduce depression and stress levels, invigorate one’s mood. In its medical applications, the substance is used to treat various attention deficit disorders and chronic sleep disorders such as narcolepsy and insomnia. Phenylethylamine is known for its excellent antidepressant, anti-epileptic, and analgesic properties and is thus used in pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, food & beverage, and personal care products. The human body naturally produces phenylethylamine from the amino acid L-phenylalanine and enzyme aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase through enzymatic decarboxylation.

However, the global phenylethylamine market growth is further fueled by the growing use of phenylethylamine in psychoactive and mind-relaxing products and the rising demand for medicated personal care products, such as fragrant, antiperspirant deodorants and oral care products. The growing focus on improving life’s quality, rising health & wellness trends, increasing demand for premium-quality beauty & personal care products, augmented usage of pain relief products, and soaring income levels of individuals are the other vital factors propelling the global market growth. Moreover, the increasing consumption of psychoactive substances, such as alcohol, tobacco, and cannabis, especially among the younger generation to treat anxiety or for recreation, is another crucial factor boosting the market growth. However, stringent government regulations against the use or consumption of phenylethylamine in several countries are expected to hamper market growth in the future.
