Glucuronolactone Market Research, 2032

The global glucuronolactone market was valued at $380.3 million in 2022, and is projected to reach $617.3 million by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2023 to 2032. Glucuronolactone is a detoxicant and one of the key precursors for the production of vitamin C. It also interacts with toxins in the body to form water-soluble compounds that are excreted via bodily fluids. When combined with other substances, glucuronolactone has been shown to have health benefits on the human body, such as boosting concentration and raising activity levels.

Glucuronolactone Market

Glucuronolactone is frequently used in nutrition supplemental food (health and fitness supplements) in the form of powders and capsules to boost strength during exercise sessions and strength training. It’s also found in skin care and safety goods, as well as personal care and medical products. Glucuronolactone is used to make drugs that are used to treat hepatocirrhosis, arthritis, and hepatitis, among other conditions. Animal and poultry feed also contains D-glucuronolactone.

Increased health awareness, evolving consumer lifestyles, changing consumer behaviour for embracing new products, and a rise in demand for convenience foods have all contributed to an increase in demand for dietary supplements globally. Glucuronolactone is often utilized in energy drinks due to its benefits on the human body, such as enhancing physical performance while also facilitating regeneration and rebound after activity. Energy drinks provide a fast burst of energy to the body. Energy drinks commonly include amino acids, carbohydrates, vitamin B, caffeine, and glucuronolactone. The popularity of these functional beverages has skyrocketed in recent years. A variety of factors have led to the growth in demand for power beverages, including changing customer behaviour in terms of product acceptability and increased need for ready meals. As a result of growing urbanisation, consumer tastes have altered, with a demand for things that provide an immediate energy boost. Another important element driving demand for convenience foods and beverages is the rise in disposable income in developed countries. Demand will grow owing to the thriving healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors, since it is extensively utilized in joint therapy to improve muscular performance. Increased health consciousness as a result of internet usage, as well as a shift in customer purchasing behaviour toward energy drinks are factors projected to drive the Glucuronolactone Market Growth during the forecast period.

One factor hindering the Glucuronolactone market demand  is the detrimental health effects of glucuronolactone in the long run. Moreover, the market expansion is hindered by the high cost of nutritional supplements and the diverse adverse reactions they induce. The primary issue regarding energy drinks is the requirement for extra security precautions. The additives in drinks (such as taurine, ginseng, and guarana) have yet to be well-studied and must be carefully regulated by the FDA (food and drug administration). Additionally, companies that make energy drinks may refer to their goods as "supplements" in order to get around laws that apply to other drinking options. Thus, these factors are restraining the market growth.

Rising health consciousness, changes in consumer lifestyle, and increased knowledge of health and wellness products are all contributing to market growth. Growing living standards and an increase in the demand for alcoholic energy drinks are predicted to drive market expansion throughout the projection period. Additionally, the growing demand and popularity of healthcare drinks and supplements in athletes, sportsmen, and gym professionals are driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, high usage of chemicals or metabolites in food and drug along with the adjuvant drugs for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis will further drive the market growth.
