The growing consumer preference regarding health benefits from a variety of health supplements has fuelled the demand for alpha-ketoglutaric acid, as it provides essential nutrients to the body. Alpha-ketoglutaric acid is an organic chemical compound that helps in metabolic activity of humans and animals. Alpha-ketoglutaric acid is a vital compound in the citric acid cycle, which helps the human body to process adenosine triphosphate commonly known as metabolized energy. This energy which is metabolized as an end product of the citric acid cycle helps in nourishing the cells and tissues of humans. Although alpha-ketoglutaric acid is processed by the human body naturally, it can also be synthesized in chemical reactions for the additional applications. The increasing demand for dietary supplements in the recent years has increased the adoption of alpha-ketoglutaric acid as it helps in improvising healthy metabolism. Along with regular exercise and physical workouts, consumers have been showing increased concern towards digestive and immune health to prevent life-threatening diseases, which is one of the major factors expected to drive the growth of the global alpha-ketoglutaric acid market. Due to increasing demand for supplements in the recent years, the global alpha-ketoglutaric acid market is projected to grow a significant CAGR during the forecast period.   

Alpha-ketoglutaric Acid Market: Dynamics

Along with dietary supplements, the alpha-ketoglutaric acid has many applications in pharmaceuticals as an active drug component. As alpha-ketoglutaric acid is enriched with antioxidant nutrients, it is used in formulating chemotherapeutical drugs that act against cancer cells, which is expected to increase their demand from the healthcare professionals due to increasing prevalence of cancer over the years. As a rich source of adenosine triphosphate, alpha-ketoglutaric acid has high potency to increase the blood infusion rates during open heart surgery, thereby reducing the medical complications. Alpha-ketoglutaric acid is also known to improvise the kidney function especially for the patients undergoing hemodialysis and hence used as an infusion drug along with intravenous injections (IV). Alpha-ketoglutaric acid also supplies sufficient oxidative nutrients such as amino acids, glucose, and fatty acids thereby providing instantaneous energy to patients. Alpha-ketoglutaric acid is projected to cater the growing demand in pharmaceuticals and infant formulations, which is expected to drive the growth of the global alpha-ketoglutaric acid market during the forecast period.
