This market research study identifies HAIHANG INDUSTRY, Kalion, RENNOVIA, and Rivertop Renewables as the leading players in the global glucaric acid market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by product (D-glucaric acid-1,4-lactone, calcium D-glucarate, pure glucaric acid, and others), by applications (corrosion inhibitors, food ingredients, detergents, and others), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, Europe, and MEA).

Overview of the global glucaric acid market

D-glucaric acid-1,4-lactone is a derivative of the glucaric acid and is extensively used in the treatment of different types of cancer such as prostate and breast cancer. Research analysis on the global glucaric acid market identifies that the growing demand for derivatives of D-glucaric acid in cancer treatment will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the market’s growth in the coming years. D-glucaric acid D eliminates and detoxifies certain metabolic waste products. Glucaric acid is present in grapefruits, oranges, apples, broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage in high concentration. The consumption of fruits and vegetables reduces the risk of cancer by inhibiting the enzyme called beta-glucuronidase. The demand for glucaric acid is increasing due to the rising population in China and India and the increasing number of people with breast and lung cancer. Technavio’s market research analysts predict that this market will grow at a CAGR of close to 11% by 2021.

The abundant availability of sugar in major countries such as India, China, and Pakistan facilitates the production of glucaric acid in APAC. The climatic conditions in the region also support the growth of sugarcane. This will boost the production of sugar and glucaric acid in these countries. Furthermore, the high prevalence of cancer in China and India is also driving the need for derivatives of glucaric acid such as calcium D-glucarate that inhibits cancer-causing carcinogens.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The glucaric acid market is moderately concentrated and has many key vendors. A large number of manufacturers are heavily investing in research and developmental activities to develop better products. The level of competition among the existing and new entrants will intensify in the coming years.

Key vendors in this market are -

  • Kalion
  • Rivertop Renewables

Other prominent vendors in the market include Aadhunik Industries, AK Scientific, Alfa Chemistry, Anmol Chemicals, Carbosynth, Cayman Chemical, and Merck.

Segmentation by product and analysis of the glucaric acid market

  • D-glucaric acid-1,4-lactone
  • Calcium D-glucarate
  • Pure glucaric acid

The oxidation of sugar such as glucose with nitric acid forms pure glucaric acid. Glucaric acid is also known as saccharic acid or D-glucaric acid. It exhibits high efficacy in eliminating and detoxifying metabolic wastes. The pure glucaric acid segment is witnessing considerable growth due to utilization for manufacturing detergents. Liquid detergent manufacturers extensively prefer pure glucaric acid because it is an organic acid made from renewable resources and is completely biodegradable.

Segmentation by applications and analysis of the glucaric acid market

  • Corrosion inhibitors
  • Food ingredients
  • Detergents

The demand for glucaric acid is increasing for the manufacture of detergents since it is biodegradable. The sodium salt of the glucaric acid is used to produce glucaric acid detergent. Glucaric acid is a good chelating agent that binds calcium and magnesium ions with hard water. This makes the detergent more effective. The application of glucaric acid will continue to increase in the detergent segment because there is an extensive usage of the derivative of glucaric acid sodium glucarate, in the water treatment industry.
