The increasing demand for green chelates/natural chelating agents from end-use applications such as cleaning, water treatment, agriculture, personal care, and food & beverage owing to its superior properties and eco-friendliness is the major driver of this market.

Green chelates/natural chelating agents are also known as biodegradable chelating agents. These chelates have similar properties as conventional chelates and function with the same efficiency. Green chelates/natural chelating agents reach >60% biodegradability within 28 days of discharge in the ecosystem.

The development of a cost-effective and operationally efficient alternative for the two most frequently used chelating agents, NTA and EDTA, has been an important objective in this industry. Such type of product are required to perform in similar manner as conventional chelating agents and should have good toxicological and ecological profile. Green chelates/natural chelating agents such as GLDA and MGDA were introduced to serve the above purposes efficiently.

The market for GLDA is projected to register the highest growth rate. Growth in the use of green chelates/natural chelating agents is caused by changes in cleaning formulations due to ban on phosphates and stringent environmental regulations in developed countries such as U.S., Germany, France, and the Netherlands. This growth is also expected to increase in the future owing to the rise in population and urbanization in the emerging economies.

In cleaning application, green chelates/natural chelating agents are basically used in the formulation of laundry, surface care, home care, metal surface cleaning, transport cleaning, hard surface cleaning, and biocidal detergents. Hard water contains calcium, magnesium, iron, and manganese metal ions. These metal ions reduce the cleaning ability of laundry detergents, making the surface difficult to clean.

Green chelate combines itself with metal ions, rendering them ineffectual in washing operations, hence, improving the performance of laundry detergents. These chelates also give better foaming and rinsing in hard water. Impending ban on phosphates in Europe and the U.S. is giving rise to the use of green chelates/natural chelating agents such as MGDA, GLDA, sodium gluconate, and others.

Europe is the largest market for green chelates/natural chelating agents, registering a moderate CAGR, in terms of value, between 2016 and 2021. This growth is majorly driven by the increase in green chelates/natural chelating agents demand in various application segments such as cleaning, water treatment, agriculture, personal care, and food & beverage due to the implementation of stringent environmental regulations and growing acceptance in the FMCG industry.
