Cystine is a type of amino acid which comes from cysteine. Each molecule of cystine is formed by two molecules of cystine. Cystine is a white and solid amino acid which is less soluble in water as compared to other amino acids. Cystine is one of the very few amino acids which contains sulphur which is essential in maintaining the proteins in the human body. The body converts cystine into glucose and uses it as a source of energy. Due to its numerous applications, a significant number of players are entering into the manufacturing and supply of cysteine which has led to the rise in the competition. Rising competition in the cystine market is motivating manufacturers to come up with better and innovative solutions and competitive prices. Manufacturers of cystine amino acids have great platform across the world to cater to in the market. The key countries that are involved in the global cystine market are Japan, India, the UK, the United States, Korea, China, France, Germany, and others.
