It helps to control the development of pathogenic microorganisms, improve flavor, and extend the shelf life of food products. Owing to these properties, lactic acid is widely utilized in the preparation of wine and fermented dairy products, curing meat and fish, pickling vegetables, and as an emollient in various cosmetic items and an additive in pharmaceutical products.

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.

Global Lactic Acid Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the rising consumption of processed and ready-to-eat food products. Lactic acid is utilized to enhance product shelf life and as a flavoring agent and pH regulator in several bakery items, beverages, confectionery, and meat products. In addition, the increasing product adoption in the pharmaceutical industry for manufacturing active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) that are used in drugs, IV solutions, and liquid supplements represent another major growth-inducing factor.
