2022-06-20 Comments

The Gamma Linolenic Acid(GLA) is forecast to be going to withstand moderate growth over the next four years. According to the WK-chem Research “Global Gamma Linolenic Acid(GLA) Professional Survey Report 2022, Forecast to 2027”, Growing end-use applications such as pharmaceutical and healthcare, food additives are the key factors driving the growth of the global gamma linolenic acid (GLA) market.The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the 2022-2027 period is projected to be 4.37% base on WK-chem Research regression analysis model.

Analysts’ Viewpoint:

“With the continuous improvement of per capita income level and the continuous enhancement of health awareness, gamma linolenic acid (GLA) has a broad space for development in nutrition and health care.”said Selena, Senior analyst, Chemicals Goods Market Research Center in WK-chem Research.”However, it is suggested that industry players of gamma linolenic acid (GLA) can actively carry out technological innovations, reduce production costs, improve production efficiency, and occupy more market shares.”

Market insight:

Gamma-linolenic acid, GLA (Gamma- Linolenic Acid) is called γ-linolenic acid, is a polyunsaturated fatty acid, and belongs to the special Omega-6 series of essential fatty acids in structure. The body’s own production of GLA is extremely inefficient, so it must be obtained from food. As a food additive or nutritional supplement, γ-linolenic acid can improve the structure of human food and enhance human immune function when consumed for a long time.
