Sarasota, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/30/2017 -- Zion Market Research, the market research group announced the analysis report titled "Levulinic Acid Market: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecasts 2016–2024"
Global Levulinic Acid Market: Overview
Levulinic acid is an organic compound which is replacing petroleum-based products in different sectors such as biofuel and chemical industry. It is normally produced from biomass, manure, and brewery waste. It is the antecedent of biofuels and is derived from degradation of cellulose. Levulinic acid is used as a precursor in plasticizers, pharmaceuticals, and various other additives. It is produced by acidic hydrolysis of furfuryl alcohol, ozone-based oxidation of ketones, and hydrolyzing acetyl succinate esters. Levulinic acid is commonly formed by heating sucrose along with concentrated acid, during this process formic acid is also formed. It is soluble in ethanol, diethyl ether, and water but is insoluble in aliphatic hydrocarbons.

Global Levulinic Acid Market: Growth Factors
Levulinic acid is extensively used for manufacturing of PVC which is a better alternative for phthalate plasticizers; this factor is expected to drive the market. PVC is broadly used in the manufacturing of different products in varied industries such as packaging, healthcare, automotive, and others. Levulinic acid is less toxic as compared to phthalate plasticizers that can pose health concerns for children. It is used as pesticides and additives in the biofuel production and pharmaceutical manufacturing. Levulinic acid is also used in cigarettes to enhance the nicotine content. Bio-based production of levulinic acid is in huge quantity as there occurs a large price difference, thus its production quantity is much higher. Increasing spending on the R&D of manufacturing technology is anticipated to open new growth opportunities in coming years. However, substitution from alternatives of the synthetic chemical of levulinic acid is the major challenge before levulinic acid market.
