According to a recent market study published by Growth Market Reports, titled, “Global Glucaric Acid Market” by types, by applications, and by regions: Size, Share, Trends and Opportunity Analysis, 2019-2029”, the market was valued at USD 12.56 Million in 2021 and is expected to grow at a growth rate of 5.2% by the year 2030. As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Sakshi Bhoyar, “Global Glucaric Acid Market is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period 2021-2029. Significant benefits offered by glucaric acid such as the single-step process and cost-effective production are driving the market. Shifting consumer preferences towards the adoption of biodegradable products is fueling the market.

Glucaric acid, also known as saccharic acid, is manufactured by glucose and nitric acid. Glucaric acid is produced from the chemical oxidation of glucose, with nitric acid as solvent and oxidant, which led to low yields and toxic byproducts. Glucaric acid is an eco-friendly raw material used in the production of various products such as soaps, detergents, and others. Increasing adoption of glucaric acid in various applications, including detergents, corrosion inhibitors, food additives & health supplements, and pharmaceuticals, is expected to drive the market during the forecast period. Growing demand for eco-friendly products among consumers across the globe is boosting the market. Market players are implementing different strategies such as developing bio-biodegradable products, which is expected to boost the market in the near future.

Key factors that are anticipated to fuel the demand for the global glucaric acid market during the forecast period, due to increase in various application of glucaric acid globally and growing demand for glucaric acid in the food industry. Conversely, high cost of mass production of glucaric acid is hampering the growth of the glucaric acid market. Growing demand for natural phytochemical substances for cancer treatment is creating lucrative opportunities for market players.
