Glycinates Market Trends



  • Rising demand for nutrient-dense food and Covid-19 impact is driving the market growth


Because of the demand for more nutrient-dense foods, glycolates are in great demand. The sector is also being driven by factors like increased mineral shortage in the populace, particularly in emerging nations like Brazil, rising demand for chelated minerals in food additives, and rising restrictions on the use of antibiotics in livestock feed. To strengthen bones and stimulate the immune system, glycinates are frequently employed as dietary supplements. The pharmaceutical and nutraceutical sectors' demand for healthy and natural food additives and growing consumer awareness of skincare products containing natural compounds like magnesium glycinate fuel the market growth of glycinates.


After the COVID-19 pandemic breakout, there has been a heightened need for nutritional supplements. Due to changes in consumer behavior and shopping habits, supplements that boost immunity and overall health are in great demand. Because it is so simple to mix and blend with the additives and binding agents of personal care and cosmetic goods, including shampoo, shower gel, moisturizer, lotion, and hand wash, liquid glycinates are in great demand from cosmetics and skincare makers. All of these elements significantly boost the market for glycinate and the high demand for glycinates.


Glycinates Market Segment Insights


Glycinates Type Insights


The glycinates segmentation, based on type, includes zinc, copper, manganese, magnesium, calcium, sodium, and others. The calcium-type segment held the majority share in 2022. The market for calcium glycinate-based glycinates is anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR. The use of calcium glycinate monohydrate in treating calcium deficits that might cause osteoporosis is growing significantly. Calcium glycinate products are also anticipated to increase due to the increased prevalence of musculoskeletal ailments and degenerative bone disorders. For instance, the World Health Organization (WHO) reports that over 1.7 billion individuals worldwide suffer from musculoskeletal diseases, the main cause of disability. Furthermore, calcium glycinate is becoming a well-liked therapy for controlling blood pressure, muscular contractions, and celiac disease patients.


Glycinates Structure Insights


Based on structure, the glycinates segmentation includes fluid, powder and others. Throughout the projected period, the market for glycinates in a fluid state is expected to grow the fastest. In producing processed foods, dietary supplements, and other food products, liquid glycinate is frequently employed as an ingredient. Several pharmaceuticals and personal care products are also made with it. The usage of liquid glycinate as a taste enhancer in some foods and beverages is being fueled by the increased output of processed goods, particularly in industrialized and emerging regions.


Also, the need for liquid fertilizers from the agriculture sector is significantly increasing, which is good news for the glycinate business. For instance, liquid zinc glycinate fertilizers are increasingly utilized to boost plant metabolism, fruit crop bud formation, and cereal plant tillering.
