Production and Market of Glyoxalic Acid in China

http://www.reportlinker.com/p089719/Production-and-Market-of-Glyoxalic-Acid-in-China.html

Glyoxalic acid is a kind of basic organic chemical material. Bourbonal and vanillin, made of glyoxalic acid, are widely used in the flavoring agent and fixative of cosmetics, essence of daily-use chemicals. Allantoin, another downstream product for glyoxalic acid, is used as healer for wound, additive for cosmetics and plant growth regulator. It is also used in the field of medicine. P-hydroxylphenylglycine, which is an important medical intermediate and is widely used to produce lactam series antibiotic such as syncillin and cephalosporin series medical product, is also made of glyoxalic. A downstream product of glyoxalic acid, p-Hydroxyphenylacetamide is widely used to produce Atenolol, a kind of hypertension medicine.

Driven by the huge demand of its downstream products, the recent output of glyoxalic acid in China is increasing all the time, and the product quality is also improving greatly. More and more overseas companies start to import glyoxalic acid from China, with export volume increasing rapidly. However, the export volume decreased to 6,125 tonnes in 2007, accounting for about 13% of China's glyoxalic acid output, and that's because the consumption of GA in domestic market was increasing rapidly, and as the capacity of GA in China is growing and the quality is improving, the export volume of GA will increase again rapidly. But the impact of this trend only limit to the large-scale glyoxalic acid producers that master the technology of high purity products, while for the minor enterprises, which can only produce ordinary glyoxalic acid, it is hard for them to get more benefits from export.

Affected by the price of its raw material and the supply and demand situation of its downstream products, the price of glyoxalic acid is undergoing great changes recently and it is estimated that the situation will continue for a long time.

Because of environmental reasons, the production situation will undergo even huge changes in the future, and many glyoxalic acid producers will have to upgrade their production line to ensure their competitive advantages.

The detailed and in-depth analysis of China's glyoxalic acid production and market situations are discussed in this report.
