Monochloroacetic Acid Market by Key Players, Growth Potential Analysis and Forecasts Report 2024

Pharmaceutical, paper, textiles, personal care, food & beverages, oil & gas, and chemical industries are the primary drivers for the global monochloroacetic acid market.


Sellbyville, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/25/2019 -- As per a recent industry report put forward by Global Market Insights Inc., Monochloroacetic Acid Market is forecast to register its name in the billion-dollar fraternity down the line of seven years, by exceeding a revenue of USD 1.2 billion by 2024 with a projected CAGR of 4% over 2018-2024.

Monochloroacetic acid is the key component in the manufacturing of carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC). CMC finds application in the food industry as a thickener, viscosity modifier, and emulsion stabilizer, and is considered as a key driver for monochloroacetic acid (MCAA) market. This cellulose finds extensive usage in ice creams, and other food products. Apart from this, it is also used in non-food items such as toothpastes, paper products, textile sizing, detergents, and water-based paints. Rising demand for ready-to-eat food products as well as personal hygiene products will catalyze the CMC demand, hence propelling the monochloroacetic acid (MCAA) market largely in the forecast timespan.

Around 30% of the total monochloroacetic acid (MCAA) production in the world is used for the manufacturing of CMC, which also finds extensive usage in the oil & drilling industry. CMC is used as a viscosifier in drilling muds that help in the drilling of boreholes for extraction of oil & gas. Moreover, it also balances the physical parameters such as adjustment of viscosity, reduction of water loss, and increase in oil thixotropy. CMC also helps in preventing fungal growth in drilling mud, thereby avoiding need for addition of other preservatives and pH level indicators to it. Rising production of CMC to meet the demand from the booming oil & gas sector will also augment the monochloroacetic acid (MCAA) market demand in coming years.

MCAA is extensively used in the field of medicine to manufacture synthetic caffeine, vitamin B, chlortetracycline, vitamin B6, theophylline, epinephrine, barbiturates, fluorouracil, glycine, and adrenaline. This enviable application portfolio has already set the ground for the massive development of monochloroacetic acid market from the pharma sector.

MCAA is utilized to manufacture intermediates of organic synthesis, thiocyanate acetic acid, herbicides, dimethoate, acidizing agents, iszidate, etc. The tremendous future potential of monochloroacetic acid industry from agrochemicals banks on the fact that even today, a substantial number of countries across the globe deem agriculture to be one of their key occupational sectors for economic growth.
