Carboxylic Acid Market with Result, Challenges, Research, Forecast Growth 2025

The global market for carboxylic acid is chiefly driven by the increased consumption of vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) in the food and beverages industry and the rising demand for valeric, butyric, and stearic acid in cosmetics and personal care products.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/29/2017 -- Global Carboxylic Acid Market: Overview

Organic acids containing the carboxyl group (-COOH) are called carboxylic acids. These compounds are extensively used in the manufacture of products such as dyes, pharmaceuticals, plastics, detergents, textile, animal feed, rubber, soaps, and perfumes. Some carboxylic acids such as acetic acid, benzoic acid, and citric acid find wide usage as preservatives in the food and beverages industry.

Some of the other industrially-viable varieties of carboxylic acids are valeric acid, isovaleric acid, formic acid, propionic acid, butyric acid, isobutyric acid, and stearic acid. In the past few years, high demand from end-use industries has significantly increased the annual global consumption of these compounds and in response, companies in the market are increasing their production capacities.

Global Carboxylic Acid Market: Key Trends

The global market for carboxylic acid is chiefly driven by the increased consumption of vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) in the food and beverages industry and the rising demand for valeric, butyric, and stearic acid in cosmetics and personal care products. The rising consumer preference to bio-based products will be the key factor driving the increased use of carboxylic acid in the cosmetics and personal care industries, especially in developed economies. The market will also gain traction on account of the increased use of organic acids in animal feed as growth promoters for animals.

Carboxylic acid is also used as an active ingredient in a number of drug formulations such as antibiotics, anticoagulants, cholesterol-lowering statins, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). As the global geriatric population leads to the increased demand for these drugs, the pharmaceutical industry is also expected to be a key force driving the market in the near future.

Global Carboxylic Acid Market: Market Potential

Research activities have always been abundant in the area of developing commonly used organic compounds such as carboxylic acids from raw materials derived from natural sources, replacing the use of possibly hazardous chemicals. In a similar attempt, South Korean scientists have demonstrated the use of enzymes to turn algae into plastic. Researchers hope that the process can also be used in biopreservatives as a replacement to synthetic ingredients in foods and beverages, personal care products, and cosmetics.

Algae's quick proliferation and low input needs have allowed its use in research activities for years as a possible biofuel and a way of capturing carbon dioxide for making plastic. This method, as the researchers claim, is unique because it uses enzymes as an environment-friendly method to develop heavy-chain carboxylic acid, a monomer which is considered the basic building block for the manufacture of a variety of high-quality plastics. Heavy-chain carboxylic acid is conventionally produced through a harsh chemical process.

Global Carboxylic Acid Market: Regional Overview

Credited with being the largest producer of carboxylic acid, thanks to the thriving manufacturing sector in China, the Asia Pacific carboxylic acid market holds a dominant position in the global market. The region is also a significant consumer of the chemical owing to the steady growth of key end-use industries such as consumer goods, lubricants, food and beverages. The region is also emerging as the hub for the production of bio-based chemicals. China's role in the global carboxylic market, with the addition of more production capacities for the chemical, continues to be of significance.
