Deerfield Beach, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/12/2017 -- Zion Market Research has published a new report titled "Global Capric Acid Market for Artificial Fruit Flavors and Perfumes, Pharmaceuticals and Chemical Syntheses (Lubricants, Greases, Rubber, Dyes, Plastics, etc.), 2014 - 2020." According to the report, global demand for capric acid was valued at USD 192.5 million in 2014 and is expected to generate revenue of USD 302.8 million by end of 2020, growing at a CAGR of 7.8% between 2015 and 2020. In terms of volume, the global capric acid market stood at 70,000.0 tons in 2014.

Capric acid is also called decanoic acid. It is the saturated fatty acid with a chain of 10 carbon atoms. It is used in the production of perfumes, lubricants, greases, rubber, dyes, plastics, food additives and medicines. Capric acid is used as an intermediate in chemical syntheses. It is used in organic synthesis and industrially in the manufacture of perfumes, lubricants, greases, rubber, dyes, plastics, food additives and pharmaceuticals. Decanoate ester prodrugs of various pharmaceuticals are available. Since, capric acid is a fatty acid, forming a salt or ester with a drug will increase its lipophilicity and its affinity for fatty tissue. Since the distribution of a drug from fatty tissue is usually slow, one may develop a long-acting injectable form of a drug (called a Depot injection) by using its decanoate form. Some examples of drugs available as a decanoate ester include nandrolone, fluphenazine, bromperidol, and haloperidol.
