By Type - Segment Analysis
Sodium gluconate is widely used in Green Chelates/Natural Chelating Agents Market. Sodium gluconate is the Gluconic acid sodium salt formed by glucose fermentation. This is primarily used as an important set retarder and plasticizer in concrete admixtures for technological applications, as well as a chelating agent for calcium and magnesium ions in commercial, institutional, and household cleaning products. Sodium gluconate is used as a chelating agent i.e. (EDTA replacement) as well as a potent moisturizing ingredient in personal care products. The use of sodium gluconate has increased in food applications, such as the formulation of high-intensity sweeteners, mineral salts, and food processing equipment cleaning operations, thus driving the market demand.
By Application- Segment Analysis
Cleaning held the largest share in the Green Chelates/Natural Chelating Agents Market in 2019and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.26% during the forecast period 2020-2025. Green Chelates/natural chelating agents are biologically degradable chemicals commonly used in cleaning products such as washing, surface care, and detergents for home care. The application for cleaning is broken down into household and industrial cleaning. Applications for household cleaning include automated dishwashing, laundry detergents, hand spraying, and surface cleaning. Green Chelates/natural chelating agents are used for the removal of metal ions in industrial cleaning applications such as mechanical dishwashing, and others.
Geography- Segment Analysis
North America held the largest share with 45.62% in Green Chelates/Natural Chelating Agents Market in 2019. Increasing the use of green chelates/natural chelating agents in North America is projected to be driven by many factors, such as its readily biodegradable nature, the region's stringent environmental and water resource protection laws, the formulation process involving natural sustainable and renewable sources, and recent regional expansions. The USA dominates the North American market for green chelates/natural chelating agents. This has greatly increased its intake of green chelates/natural chelating agents and is projected to see more development in the near future. The high growth in the U.S. market for green chelates/natural chelating agents is a result of the growing population, awareness of the benefits of using green chemicals, and enforcement of stringent environmental regulations.
Drivers –Green Chelates/Natural Chelating Agents Market
- Increasing use of green chelates agent in food & beverages
Trace metal ions cause several foods and beverage spoilage reactions and degrade both quality and shelf life. The high-purity food-grade chelate forms a stable complex with trace metal ions and prevents undesirable reactions to food spoilage. Many processed food products also suffer from spoilage reactions caused by trace metal ions which are present from raw materials, process water, and process equipment in all processed food products. Hence, green chelating agent binding increases the efficiency of antioxidants and inhibits ascorbic acid oxidation and fat-soluble vitamins. In soft drinks, green chelates agents can help to stabilize vitamin C and minimize color fading and loss of flavor. It even reduces gushing in beer and promotes clarity. Green chelates agents can also prevent spoilage reactions in pickles, stabilize spirits and liquors, and stop the potato products from graying and darkening. Also, the use of green chelates / natural chelating agents mainly due to strict environmental and water conservation legislation and awareness of the benefits of using these chemicals in food & beverage will drive the market in the forecast period.
- Performance in fast-moving consumer goods industries (FMCG) in emerging economies
Fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) is the largest combination of consumer goods with different product categories that include home, health, and personal care and food & drinks which use biodegradable materials such as green chelates, including its marketing, production, and distribution. The use of green chelates in the personal care segment is expected to see significant growth due to the increase in consumer disposable income, allowing them to spend large amounts on luxury personal care items. Other factors such as the increase in online shopping trends, R&D for new brands & goods, and the expansion of the FMCG network in developed countries rural areas are expected to open up new avenues in the future for FMCG market players.
Challenges – Green Chelates/Natural Chelating Agents Markets
- Building awareness about the benefits of green chelates in developed economies
Green chemical engineering embraces the idea of designing advanced technologies that are environmentally sustainable to protect human health and ecosystems. Further pursue this principle for minimizing industrial waste and reducing the environmental effects of toxic chemicals, new, greener methods for removing heavy metals from industrial waste need to be adopted. Owing to which building awareness about the benefits of green chelates in developed economies is mandatory. Chelating technology, a modern research trend, has demonstrated its potential to develop sustainable metal extraction technology from diverse metal-contaminated sites. However, the mechanism of ligands interacting with metals and the eco-toxicological danger associated with increased bioavailability of heavy metals due to the development of metal-chelate complexes are still not adequately explained. Hence, Green chelating technology is kept into consideration which is biodegradable and non-toxic to the environment. Also, it will be a challenge as people already are familiar with EDTA chelating technologies and with taking time to gradually shift from non-biodegradable to biodegradable green chelates.
