The global gluconic acid market size is expected to reach USD 1.8 billion in 2028 and register a revenue CAGR of 5.2% over the forecast period, according to the latest report by Reports and Data. Among the key factors driving market revenue growth are increasing applications of gluconic acid in the food beverage, personal care, pharmaceutical, and agriculture industries. Gluconic acid is a non-toxic, non-corrosive organic acid with high solubility in water and a mild and refreshing taste. It has higher pH levels compared to other commonly used chelators. Gluconic acid is chemically produced through the oxidization of glucose, however, the substance is also naturally present in honey, wine, and various fruits. In the food beverage industry, gluconic acid is used in a wide range of meat and dairy products as a food additive and flavoring agent. It is widely used in bakery products such as cakes and doughnuts as a leavening agent. Increasing use of the acid in personal care products including skin cleansers, mouthwashes, and shampoos is another key factor driving the global market growth. Gluconic acid promotes exfoliation of dead cells and aids in cell renewal, and it offers antioxidant and restorative capabilities. Other important applications of gluconic acid include printing, textile dyeing, metal surface water treatment, house cleaning products, and numerous others.
