LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global monosodium glutamate (MSG) market report. This research report also lists four other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The global MSG market is likely to grow at a significant growth rate during the forecast period. The market witnessed an increasing demand from APAC both in terms of consumption and production. The growth in the market is propelled by booming demand for fast foods and Chinese food products from several regions such as Oceania, Indian subcontinent, and Southeast Asia.

Competitive vendor landscape

According to the report, the vendors operating in the global MSG market compete based on quality, price, service, and distribution. Corn kernels have the largest share in the MSG cost structure. To survive and succeed in this competitive environment, it is imperative for vendors in the market to distinguish their product offerings through a clear and unique value proposition.

The increasing vendor competition leads to price reduction that could negatively affect vendor margins and the market growth. The current market includes companies of varying sizes, some being more specialized than others with respect to a production process, while others have larger financial resources,” says Ajay Adhikari, a lead specialty chemicals research analyst from Technavio.
