By applying the holographic method, we study a non-perturbative renormalization group (RG) flow triggered by a gluon condensate. After introducing a bulk scalar field in an AdS space related to the gluon condensate, we investigate the trace anomaly proportional to the gluon condensate. The holographic calculation reproduces the one-loop trace anomaly known in the lattice QCD. We also show that higher loop corrections give rise to additional contributions and modify the one-loop trace anomaly.
