The demand for glycerine has increased internationally which affects key players such as HeBei Donghua Jiheng Aminoacid. According to a recent report, Global Market Study on Glycine conducted by Persistence Market Research, more than 165,000 tons of glycine worth around US$1,192.2 Mn will be consumed globally by the end of 2024.
The report suggests a moderate pace of growth between 2016 and 2024 with a projected value of CAGR at 3.9%. The decelerated growth is due to a number of factors including downward pricing, imposition of antidumping duties, and volatility in material costs. North America is forecast to remain the world’s largest glycine market with Europe’s revenues expected to rise. Meanwhile the Asia-Pacific glycine market, which HeBei Donghua Jiheng operate in, is expected to soar at the highest CAGR through 2024.
