How big is the Glutamic Acid Industry?

“According to the latest research study, the demand of global Glutamic Acid Market size & share in terms of revenue was valued at USD 10 billion in 2022 and it is expected to surpass around USD 16.8 billion mark by 2030, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 5.5% during the forecast period 2023 to 2030.”

What is Glutamic Acid?

The production of proteins requires a number of different amino acids, including glutamic acid, which is an essential amino acid. The production of glutamic acid requires glucose, coryneform bacteria, and sugarcane molasses as its primary components. The fermentation process includes a number of phases, including centrifugation, fermentation, carbon absorption, crystallization, evaporation, and ion exchange, to generate it. As a result of the extremely high purity and quality of the glutamic acid that can be produced through the use of this technique, it is widely used by manufacturers.

Regional Analysis:

  • Asia Pacific is likely to dominate the global market

Asia Pacific is the fastest-growing glutamic acid market due to expansion in end-user sectors including food & beverage, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, animal feed, and others in emerging nations like India, China, and Japan. Animal feed is also in great demand due to China and India's large livestock populations. The Asia-Pacific's greatest feed-reducing nation is China, producing 187 million metric tons annually. The regional market grows due to the increased demand for local beef, poultry, and pork. The regional market is growing due to Thailand and Vietnam's large-scale cattle farming.

North America's high demand for animal feed and pharmaceuticals is likely to drive growth during the predicted timeframe. Glutamic acid is used in pharmaceuticals for cognitive problems, epilepsy, and other neurological illnesses. Glutamic acid-containing dietary supplements and pharmaceuticals are needed more due to the region's ageing population and rising rates of non-communicable diseases like chronic respiratory diseases, cardiovascular diseases, and cancer.
