October 27, 2021

As per the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “India Citric Acid Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the citric acid market in india reached a volume of 85,100 Tons in 2021. Citric acid is a weak organic acid with a sour taste, naturally found in citrus fruits like lemon, limes, oranges and pomelos. It can also be manufactured synthetically by the fermentation process using a fungus, namely Aspergillus Niger. Citric acid aids in detoxification, improving energy levels and promoting healthy digestion and kidney function. Italso finds extensive applications as an additive, preservative, flavoring, and coloring agent across the food and beverage (F&B) industry. In recent years, citric acid has gained traction among detergent manufacturers as it provides a less harmful formulation than phosphates in water systems.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
