$ 1799




The global acetic acid market was worth more than US$ 9 Billion in 2017, registering a CAGR of 8% during 2010-2017. The market is further projected to reach around US$ 13 Billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 5% during 2018-2023. Acetic acid (CH3COOH), also known as ethanoic acid or methane carboxylic acid, refers to a colorless organic compound which has a strong, sour and pungent smell. It is one of the most important chemical reagents and industrial chemicals that is employed in the production of metal acetates, vinyl acetate, cellulose acetate, and volatile organic esters like ethyl and butyl acetates. Apart from this, the diluted form of acetic acid, produced by the fermentation and oxidation of natural carbohydrates, is widely used as a cleaning agent in households.

Global Acetic Acid Market Drivers:

  • Acetic acid is used in the manufacturing of coatings, greases, polyesters and sealants which find applications in a number of industries such as electronics, automobiles, textiles, and packaging.
  • Presently, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles are gaining popularity in the medical and consumer goods sectors as they are lightweight and recyclable in nature. As PET bottles are manufactured by using purified terephthalic acid (PTA), produced from acetic acid, their mounting demand is catalyzing the growth of the market.
  • A rise has been witnessed in the consumption of vinegar as it helps in reducing weight, maintaining blood pressure, and regulating blood sugar and cholesterol levels. As acetic acid is used in the manufacturing of vinegar, it is impelling the overall growth of the market.
  • Manufacturers of acetic acid are increasingly adopting new technologies like BP's Cativa and Celanese's AO-plus (Acid Optimization Plus) which deliver significant savings in variable costs, as well as lower capital costs for the construction of new plants. Besides this, they also increase the capacity, enhance the production efficiency, reduce the energy consumption by approximately 30% and lower operating costs. The increasing adoption of these emerging technologies for producing the chemical and its derivatives is creating a positive outlook for the growth of the industry.
