Further key findings from the report suggest-

  • The market for renewable organic acids is driven by stringent environmental regulations imposed on the conventional production methods. The former do not leave any toxic waste behind and organic acids are therefore being increasingly synthesized from renewable bio-based methods.
  • By product, formic acid has important applications. It is highly acidic in nature, which helps in leather production processes, dyeing processes and textile finishing. The formic acid segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.9% during the period of forecast.
  • Citric acid is another popular organic acid that has very strong physio-chemical properties. It has important biomedical applications and also as a disinfectant against many viruses.
  • Animal feed products are an important application of organic acids due to their positive effect on feed quality and animal performance. BASF SE offers Lupro-Mix, a blend of Propionic acid and formic acid, which is a popular animal feed product.
  • Since organic acids provide antimicrobial protection, they are helpful in self-care commercial products. Their popularity arises mainly out of the fact that they are cost-effective and safe in comparison to most other alternatives that have been developed.
  • Molasses are an important bio-based source for the production of organic acids. For example, organic acids from cane molasses have properties of the acids that are naturally occurring in cane juice. Aconitic acids and malic acids are the main categories derived.
  • The organic acids market is expected to have the maximum growth and product penetration in the food and beverages industry during the forecast period. This is primarily due to their preservation and flavour addition applications.
  • North America is an important region in the global organic acids market. Strong industrial set-ups in the region and the boom in the shale oil and gas sector is expected to fuel the demand for organic acids in the North American markets.
  • Asia Pacific will be registering the highest CAGR as a market for organic acids. This is because of the presence of key market players like India and China, that have an extensively expanding food and pharmaceuticals industry. The regulatory norms are also lenient, which contributes to the ease of doing business.
