Analysis of the current market situation of Sodium gluconate industry in China.
Production and export volumes of Sodium gluconate are showing a growth trend.
1. Sodium gluconate demand structure
According to the "China Sodium Gluconate Industry Development Trend Research and Investment Prospects Forecast Report (2023-2030)" released by Guanyan Report Network, Sodium gluconate is an organic substance with the chemical formula C6H11NaO7.
Sodium gluconate can be used as an efficient chelating agent in construction, textile printing and dyeing, metal surface treatment and water treatment industries, steel surface cleaning agent, glass bottle cleaning agent, electroplating industrial aluminum oxygen coloring, and in the concrete industry as an efficient retarder, high efficiency Water reducing agent, etc.
Sodium gluconate has a wide range of uses. In recent years, with the development of downstream markets, the market demand for sodium gluconate has increased. Currently, the demand for Sodium gluconate in the field of concrete admixtures accounts for the highest proportion, reaching 8.0%; the demand for gluconolactone and printing and dyeing auxiliaries ranks second and third, accounting for 21.0% and 12.7% respectively.
2. The output of Sodium gluconate in China
As demand increases, China's Sodium gluconate production output continues to grow. In 2020, China's sodium gluconate output was 467,000 tons, a year-on-year increase of 12.15%; in 2021, China's sodium gluconate output was 494,700 tons, a year-on-year increase of 5.93%.
3. Sodium gluconate's production technology.
From the production process, the main production processes of sodium gluconate include biological fermentation, homogeneous chemical oxidation, electrolytic oxidation, heterogeneous catalytic oxidation, and enzymatic processes. Among them, the biological fermentation method has many advantages such as mild reaction conditions, fast fermentation, controllable process, easy product extraction, simplicity and environmental protection, and low cost. It is the mainstream production process of sodium gluconate at this stage.
In the long run, as a new production process, the enzymatic process is not affected by bacterial strains and auxiliary material concentrations, has simplified processes and lower energy consumption, and is one of the future development directions of industry production processes.
4. Representative leading manufacturers of Sodium gluconate in China.
The number of Sodium gluconate manufacturer outside of China is less and the output is low. Bailin Group is one of the leading manufacturers of Sodium gluconate in China. Our company is an executive director unit of China Starch Industry Association and China Biological Fermentation Industry Association.
Shenyang Bailin Technology Co.,Ltd is the largest production base of Sodium gluconate .
5. Export volume of Sodium gluconate
As the main country for producing Sodium gluconate, China origin Sodium gluconate exported to overseas market with large quantity. According to the data, China's Sodium gluconate export volume reached 212,700 tons in 2022.and will be larger volume in 2023
