Glutaric acid is an alpha, omega-dicarboxylic acid and an organic compound. Glutaric acid is a linear dicarboxylic acid that is related to compounds like succinic acid and adipic acid. Pentanedioic acid is another name for glutaric acid. Glutaric acid has the chemical formula C3H6 (COOH) 2. Glutaric acid is commonly found as colorless crystals. Glutaric acid has a molecular weight of 132.115 g/mol and a boiling point of 579 degrees Fahrenheit.

Glutaric acid is partially soluble in water and produces a moderately strong acid when mixed with it. Glutaric acid is a metabolite that is naturally produced in the human body during the metabolism of amino acids such as tryptophan and lysine.

Excess Glutaric acid in the body, on the other hand, can have negative effects on human health, including disease such as metabolic acidosis. Various methods are used to synthesize glutaric acid for industrial applications. Glutaric acid is produced by hydrolyzing dihydropyran and then oxidizing it. The reaction of potassium or sodium cyanide with 1,3-dibromopropane yields a dinitrile compound, which when hydrolyzed yields glutaric acid. Human exposure to Glutaric acid in its most common form can occur through skin absorption, inhalation, or ingestion, and causes eye and skin irritation. Glutaric acid, on the other hand, is not classified as a toxic or hazardous compound. Glutaric acid is used in the production of 1,5-Pentanedio, a widely used plasticizing additive that also serves as a precursor to polyester. Glutaric acid is also used in the manufacture of polymers such as polyamides and polyester polyols. Furthermore, glutaric acid is used in the manufacture of uvitonic acid.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers Spearheading Glutaric Acid Market Growth?

Presently, Glutaric Acid is used as a chemical intermediate to manufacture Polymer materials are in high demand across all end-use industries. Polyamide-based products are increasingly being used in industries such as automotive, clothing and apparel, sports equipment, and so on. Because of their strength, stress resistance, and flexibility, polyester polyols-based coating and adhesive products are in high demand.

Glutaric acid's use in the production of such critical polymer materials is certain to drive its market growth in the future. Furthermore, glutaric acid is used as an ingredient in the production of surfactants. Glutaric acid is used in the production of pharmaceutical products and as an ingredient in some dietary supplements in the healthcare sector.

With increasing lifestyle diseases, changing work patterns, and extreme weather conditions due to climate change, there is an increase in demand for pharmaceutical products across all regional markets. As a result, the demand from the healthcare sector is regarded as another significant growth driver for the Glutaric acid market.
