China's Production and Market of Sodium Gluconate Analysis 2012-2017 -


The "Production
and Market of Sodium Gluconate in China"
report has been added
to's offering.

The sodium gluconate industry in China was first started in the 1980s.
However, the industry did not enter its fast expanding stage until
2000s. Fast expansion of sodium gluconate capacity and the lack of
demand from downstream has led to overcapacity. Starting in 2011,
China's sodium gluconate industry has entered its structural reforming
stage. During 2015 to 2017, the capacity of sodium gluconate in China
reduced at a CAGR of -5.20% to 1,064,000 t/a in 2017.

Glucose is the essential raw material in sodium gluconate production. It
is commonly commercially manufactured from corn starch in China. The
market price of corn is the major influencing factor of the production
cost of both corn starch and sodium gluconate. The Chinese government
lowered the purchasing price of corn for temporary storage in 2015 and
canceled the purchasing policy of corn in the following year due to
excessive corn inventory and unreasonable high domestic market price of

Affected by the increasing price of corn and the tightening
environmental regulations, the output of sodium gluconate in China
dropped from 629,000 tonnes to 583,000 tonnes at a growth rate of -7.31%
during 2016-2017. Meanwhile, the apparent consumption of sodium
gluconate in China reduced by 12.73% year on year in 2017.

The export volume of sodium gluconate from China was on a continuous
growth during 2012-2017, at a CAGR of 14.59%. China exported sodium
gluconate to 89 countries and regions in 2017. India, Turkey, the United
Arab Emirates, Japan and Taiwan Province were the top five destinations
of China's sodium gluconate exports by volume.
