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 less than 15% of tech-grade glycine was consumed to produce the other three grades of glycine in 2010–2016.

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 346,000 t/a in 2010 to 607,000 t/a in 2016, and the national tech-grade glycine output increased from 153,000 tonnes in 2010 to 316,500 tonnes in 2016.

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. In H1 2016, due to sluggish glyphosate market and slowing-down growth of glycine demand, the price of glycine decreased and glycine producers have witnessed poor profits or even suffered loss. By Q3 2016, Chinese glyphosate and glycine markets recovered thanks to the decrease in the inventory of glyphosate and the ban on paraquat AS.

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 2017 to 2021. 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, etc. A review of glycine's competitiveness is also provided in the report.

The report is based on data sourced by diverse methods, such as desk research, telephone interview, network search. 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. Key market participants studied include Hebei Donghua, Yichang Jinxin, Fuhua Tongda, and Linyi Hongtai, etc.
