The global glucaric acid market is expected to reach USD 1.30 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Growing demand for this product in detergents, dishwashers, and food ingredients is expected to be the major driver of the market over the forecast period.
A ban on the use of phosphates in detergents, particularly in North America and Europe, has resulted in the emergence of glucaric acid as its substitute in this application. It is primarily made of glucose, which is organic in nature and does not affect the environment.
Glucaric acid can be used either in its pure form or as a derivative. Pure glucaric acid was the most widely used product in 2016. Increased efficiency and easy availability of pure glucaric acid as compared to derivatives such as calcium D-glucarate and D-glucaric acid-1,4-lactone were some of the major factors boosting its demand.
Asia Pacific is expected to witness the highest demand for glucaric acid over the next eight years. This region has seen a resurgence in food & beverages and soap & detergent industries which have proven to be key drivers in this region.
