Segments Covered:

Global carboxylic acid market is segmented on the basis of products such as acetic acid, formic acid, valeric acid, isovaleric acid, propionic acid, citric acid, caproic acid, stearic acid, butyric acid, isobutyric acid and others (such as benzoic acid). On the basis of end users the global carboxylic acid market can be segmented as animal feed, food & beverages, consumer goods, personal care & cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, lubricants and others (such as textiles, leather, rubber, agrochemicals).


Global carboxylic acid market is primarily driven by increasing demand in the animal feed (for acids such as butyric, formic and propionic) and food & beverage industries, it is expected to propel the market over the forecast period. Furthermore, rising demand for stearic acid, valeric acid and butyric acid in the cosmetic and personal care industry is likely to drive the global carboxylic acid market. On the other hand, stringent regulatory and legislative actions against the production of petroleum based carboxylic acids are one of the restraints in the global carboxylic acid market. Additionally, easily available substitutes for various applications are likely to restrain carboxylic acid market growth globally.

Geographic Coverage 

Asia-Pacific region is dominant consumer of carboxylic acid, rising industries have accelerated demand for the compound and is expected to continue over the forecast period. China is one of the major markets in the region due to growth in food & beverages, textile and consumer goods industries. Furthermore, increase in production capacities of pharmaceutical, plastic and lubricant industries in India, China, Indonesia and South Korea is expected to boost demand for carboxylic acid in coming future. Additionally, the US market is expected to witness high demand for carboxylic acid which is largely used in drug formulations such as antibiotics, anticoagulants, cholesterol lowering satins and anti-inflammatory drugs. Moreover, increase in geriatric population is driving pharmaceuticals segment leading to growth of carboxylic acid market.
