Rhamnose is a type of deoxy sugar that occurs naturally. It is classified as a methyl-pentose or a 6-deoxy-hexose. Rhamnose can be found in nature as L-rhamnose. It is unique because the majority of naturally found sugars are in D-form. The methyl pentoses L-fucose and L-rhamnose and the pentose L-arabinose are exceptions. Anti-wrinkle creams have used a high-rhamnose extract from the latter. In nature, it is frequently bound to other sugars. It is a common glycone component of many plant glycosides. Rhamnose is also found in the Mycobacterium genus's outer cell membranes of acid-fast bacteria, including the tuberculosis-causing pathogen.

As price-aware consumers select products that proposal both skin protection and hydration, the market for multifunctional products is pushing for improvement.

The growing consciousness of improving one's presence and a considerable growth in disposable incomes are the two significant drivers of the Asia Pacific demand for cosmetic products, motivating the market growth.

North America and Europe are predictable to grasp a substantial share globally as these are the established region. The growing food and beverages industry through these regions is encouraging the growth of the global rhamnose market. Furthermore, the Middle East & Africa, and South America are also predictable to produce a strong CAGR during the forecast period.

Rising penetration of rhamnose in the Cosmetic Industry

Rhamnose is attaining widespread acceptance in the cosmetic sector owing to thamnose’s numerous aids, such as an anti-wrinkle agent. Additionally, the anti-inflammatory and skin calming properties of rhamnose have been proved.

One skin care company's clinical trials revealed that it attacked the papillary dermis, a delicate layer of cells located directly under the dermo-epidermal junction. This, the manufacturers claim, makes it the first anti-ageing cream to recognize the cells that produce collagen that is important to youthful skin, giving it plumpness and texture. The colour cosmetics market finds its usage among women populations which has radically shaped the market's growth.

The surging demand from developing economies such as China, ASEAN countries, and Brazil tends to increase the market share of cosmetics in the foreseeable few years. The colour cosmetic market is projected to reach USD 87.89 billion by 2026, rising at a CAGR of 6.19% during the forecast period (2019-2026). The cosmetic industry's growth due to technological advancement coupled with product innovation has led to the surge in demand for colour cosmetics.

Furthermore, the rising support from the numerous government and association actions supplementary boost the growth of the global market. As of July 2019, Health Canada and Cosmetics Alliance Canada introduced the 13th annual International Cooperation Conference on Cosmetics Regulation (ICCR) in Montreal, Canada.

The ICCR is a group of global cosmetics regulators functioning to coordinate and align cosmetics regulation globally. The outline of Bill S-214 (Cruelty-Free Cosmetics Acts) in April 2019 in Commons, Canada, aimed to amend Canada’s Food and Drug Acts to ban the sale and manufacture of animal-tested cosmetics in Canada hampers the growth of the market.

Market Growth Drivers:

Increasing usage of rhamnose in the cosmetic industry is a major driver for the global market:

Due to numerous benefits such as anti-wrinkle properties, rhamnose is gaining popularity in the beauty business. Rhamnose has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory and skin-calming qualities. The usage of rhamnose in cosmetic products will be a major driver for the global market during the forecast period.  

The complex manufacturing process associated with rhamnose is expected to restrain the global market:

Over the forecast period, the complex manufacturing process associated with rhamnose is expected to prevent the growth of the global market. L-rhamnose is traditionally isolated from vegetable matter, including L-rhamnose in glycosides or purified from lignocellulosic biomass hydrolysates. After extraction from some other ingredients, L-rhamnose is liberated via chemical hydrolysis. The production process leads to the generation of potentially toxic, aromatic waste products and toxic or corrosive solvents, which require expensive disposal methods.

The rising popularity of rhamnose as a flavoring agent is expected to generate new opportunities for the global market:

Rhamnose is commonly employed in synthesizing natural furanones and savory reaction tastes. Rhamnose is utilized as a starting ingredient to manufacture furanones and a reactive flavor by the flavoring industry. Rhamnose can be used to create flavors such as grilled beef, grilled pork, grilled chicken, baked & browned flavors, beverage flavors and scents. Therefore, the adoption of unified design architecture is expected to create new opportunities for the global rhamnose market during the forecast period.

Difficulty in developing alternative production methods presents challenges for the global market:

The current production process for rhamnose is extremely difficult, time-consuming and leaves behind highly toxic byproducts which require expensive disposal methods. However, other production methods are inefficient and unsuited for industrial mass production. The difficulty in developing alternative production methods represents a major challenge for the growth of the global rhamnose market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID 19 pandemic halted multiple manufacturing services, and the ensuing decline in global trade deeply impacted the global rhamnose market. The global pandemic COVID-19 significantly impacted the supply of sugar and sugar products, the most common source for rhamnose production. The pandemic caused havoc in the distribution route system in India and Brazil, the two largest raw cane sugar producers. Even after the subsiding of the pandemic, price volatility and supply chain problems have continued to hobble the recovery of the rhamnose market. Despite the short-term challenges, the pandemic is not expected to majorly impact the long-term outlook of the global rhamnose market.  

Recent Developments in the Industry:

  1. In August 2021, Merck KGaA supplied L-Rhamnose and other reagents to scientists at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Bio sustainability of Lyngby, Denmark, for research into the role of RNA stability for gene expression.
  2. In April 2022, scientists from the University of Georgia, U.S. developed a probiotic bacteria that can synthesize L-DOPA, the standard drug used to treat Parkinson's' disease. The scientists used rhamnose to control the bacteria's rate of L-DOPA synthetization.

Market Segmentation:

The scope of the report covers segmentation based on type, application and region. The global rhamnose market is segmented by type into L-Rhamnose and others. The global rhamnose market is segmented by application into food, healthcare, cosmetics and others. The global rhamnose market is segmented by region into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa.

  1. L-Rhamnose: L-Rhamnose is a naturally occurring sugar made from sustainable wood-based or other biomass hydrolysates through a solvent-free and safe separation process without harmful chemicals. L-Rhamnose produces natural furanones, high-end cosmetics or savory reaction flavors. It can function as a pharma precursor. The active components of cardiac drugs are linked to L-Rhamnose, making it a raw material for making these medicinal compounds.
  2. Others: The major percentage of the global rhamnose market is captured by L-rhamnose; therefore, other types of rhamnose take a very small portion of the market. D- rhamnose, an exceedingly rare carbohydrate, holds a significant market share of other segments. D-rhamnose has been reported in a few organisms, such as Pseudomonas. The synthesis of D-rhamnose involves the production of GDP-mannose from M1P. A hydrolase converts the nucleotide sugar to a 4-keto-6-deoxyhexose.
