Production and Market of Glycine in China(Edition 10) 08-12-2021

Four grades of glycine are produced in China, namely tech-grade, food-grade, feed-grade and pharmaceutical-grade. Among them, tech-grade glycine has kept the dominate role, and about 15% of tech-grade glycine is consumed to produce the other three grades of glycine.

China's glycine industry has developed fast since 2010, driven by the fast development of its key downstream products—glyphosate technical. The national tech-grade glycine capacity increased from less than 300,000 t/a in 2010 to nearly 600,000 t/a in 2020, and the national tech-grade glycine output increased from about 150,000 tonnes in 2010 to over 300,000 tonnes since 2016.

Quite different from the overseas consumption structure, the largest end use segment of glycine in China is glyphosate, followed by pharmaceutical, dyeing, carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC), carboxymethyl starch, etc. Over three quarters of homemade tech-grade glycine is consumed to produce glyphosate in China annually.

The price of glycine is closely linked with that of glyphosate (high-positive correlation), because of glycine's limited consumption fields and simple production technology. The price of glycine in H1 2021 was nearly double of that in 2020, mainly driven by the price rise of glyphosate.

Objectives of this report are to present an in-depth and comprehensive view of Chinese glycine market. CCM's goal of this research is to determine the current status of Chinese glycine industry and assess its growth potential from 2021 to 2025. Having accumulated profound understanding on industrial chains of glyphosate, the most important downstream industry of glycine, CCM will present an insight into glycine market and future trends, together with its industry structure, including upstream products, applications. A review of glycine's competitiveness is also provided in the report.

The report is based on data sourced by diverse methods. The data collected and compiled was variously sourced from telephone interviews, published magazines, journals, government statistics and CCM’s database, etc. Data obtained from various sources have been combined and cross-checked to ensure that this report is as accurate and methodologically sound as possible.

The key market players in glycine industry are profiled in details, including Hebei Donghua, Hubei Trisun, Fuhua Tongda, and Linyi Hongtai.
