Global Glutathione Market: Market Driver and Restraint
On the one hand, GSH manufacturers are dedicated to lowering their manufacturing cost; on the other hand, they try to provide more qualified products to customers. Besides, they are trying to broaden the applications of GSH. At the same time, new manufacturers are trying to introduce new alternatives.
The threat of substitutes arises when there are similar products developed by competitors which satisfy the market needs. When consumers have access to substitute products which can satisfy their market needs, then manufacturers and suppliers lose their bargaining power. Consumers are able to purchase competitor's products if they are not satisfied with product price or quality. In order for suppliers to tackle the challenge of threat of substitutes, they have to innovate products which meet the needs of their target market segments.
We tend to believe this industry is an emerging industry, and the consumption increasing degree will show a rapid growth curve. However, QYR interviewed many manufacturers' sales or production managers who said that glutathione's sales growth rate was lower than the manufacturer's as expected. On product prices, the slow downward trend in recent years will maintain in the future, as competition intensifies. Besides, prices gap between different brands will go narrowing gradually. Also, there will be fluctuation in gross margin.
