Global Acetic Acid Market Size, Share, Growth, Industry Trends, Competitive Analysis and Forecast to 2030

Price: 3600/- USD |

The global acetic acid market has been projected to grow at the CAGR of 5.25% market during 2020-2027. In 2019, the market has generated a revenue of around $ 9 billion and is expected to reach $ 13 billion in terms of revenue by 2027. Acetic acid, also known as ethanoic acid, is a synthetic carboxylic acid with antibacterial and antifungal properties. The chemical is used in a variety of applications that include agricultural chemicals, pigments, and paint adhesives, as solvents, plasticizers, corrosion inhibitors, adhesive chemicals, paper products, water treatment products, and others.

Market Insights:

Growing demand for vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) coupled with increasing demand for purified terephthalic acid (PTA) and ethyl acetate are the major factors driving the global market for acetic acid. In addition, the growing proliferation of the textile & packaging industry, burgeoning demand from the Asia Pacific, and rising use of ester solvents in the paints & coating industry due to growing infrastructure, specifically in emerging economies are further driving the growth of the acetic acid market. Production of acetic acid from bio-based ethanol having less impact on the environment and climate will also provide a bright future to the growth of the acetic acid market. However, a saturation of demand for acetic acid from end-use industries particularly in North America and Europe is the factor hindering the growth of the acetic acid market in the region. Due to the high supply and less demand on account of heavy competition, the market is already running to the maximum extent possible, thus restraining the further growth in North America and Europe.

Market Segment Insights:

The application segments covered in the study include vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), purified terephthalic acid (PTA), acetate esters and acetic anhydride, and others. Vinyl acetate monomer is the largest application segment for acetic acid. It accounted for a 33% share of the market in 2019 in terms of volume and revenue. The market is mainly driven by huge demand for VAM from the adhesive and sealant industry. The acetate Esters segment is projected to be the highest growth segment of the market, which is primarily driven by the growing demand from the coatings industry. Subsequently, the budding textile and packaging industry is pushing the demand for PTA, which in turn is driving the demand for acetic acid at a notable pace.
