October 2023 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Glucosamine Market Growth & Trends

The global glucosamine market is expected to reach USD 1309.8 million by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2023 to 2030. The growing application scope of the product in the manufacturing of nutritional supplements, which aid in the prevention of osteoarthritis among consumers is expected to fuel demand over the next seven years. 

An increasing number of vegan consumers particularly in developed countries including the U.S. is expected to be another driver for the industry over the forecast period. The product is primarily manufactured from crustaceans including shrimp and crab; however, Cargill and Cyanotech have pioneered vegetarian glucosamine by extracting the ingredient from ‘aspergillus niger’ fungi. 

The increasing population, rapidly growing healthcare industry, and consumer awareness regarding joint and bone health is expected to fuel the use of glucosamine in various food & beverage products. In addition, supporting regulatory framework in Europe regarding product use in the manufacturing of food & beverages is expected to propel industry growth over the next seven years. However, an increasing number of substitutes including fish oil and omega-3 may challenge product demand over the forecast period.
