Guanylic Acid Market Research, 2031

The global guanylic acid market was valued at $1.4 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $2.4 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2022 to 2031.

Guanylic acid is a nucleotide used in RNA as a monomer. It is an ester of phosphoric acid and guanosine nucleoside. During protein synthesis, it is composed of the phosphate group, the pentose sugar ribose, and the nucleobase guanine. It is utilized in  fat-based desserts, canned or bottled vegetables, bakery goods, processed cheese, fat spreads, dried vegetables, semi-preserved fish and fish products, processed fruit, cooked or fried vegetables, spices and condiments, breakfast cereals, pre-cooked pastas, batters, processed meat and poultry, egg-based desserts, soups and broths.
