With the rising demand from the downstream industries of MSG, China's MSG industry has experienced development these years. Up to 2011, the MSG capacity has increased to nearly 3,000,000t/a, while the output has risen to over 2,300,000 tonnes, with about 5% CAGR compared to that in 2007.

Although China's MSG industry has enjoyed growth in recent years, there are many problems for MSG industry in China at the same time, such as more policy pressures from the Chinese government, tight supply of raw materials and low profit in MSG business. Then what status are China's MSG producers in currently? Are there any expansion plans for MSG in the coming five years still?

As to methods of MSG production, most of the China's large-scale MSG producers have GA (Glutamic acid) process in MSG production and produce MSG through fermentation currently, while lots of small-scale MSG producers without GA process make MSG directly from outsourcing GA by chemical synthesis method, and there are also some small-scale production lines with GA process. With stricter environmental policies, what will different scale producers of MSG do in China in the future?

A large amount of MSG is consumed in China every year. At present, MSG is mainly applied in cooking and food industry as condiment. Nevertheless, as known to all, more and more people are in favor of other condiment products in China recently. Will MSG industry shrink with other condiment products appearing? What will the MSG consumption pattern be shaped? Will the demand for MSG in China grow continually? And what about the demand from abroad? Are there still any opportunities for investors to invest in MSG industry?
