Global Malic Acid Market to Reach US$ 330.4 Million by 2032, Impelled by Increasing Demand from Food and Beverage Industry

March 18, 2019 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Malic Acid Market Report by Product (L-Malic Acid, D-Malic Acid, DL-Malic Acid), Application (Beverages, Confectionery and Food, Personal Care, and Others), and Region 2024-2032”, the global malic acid market reached a value of US$ 222.3 Million in 2023. Malic acid is a dicarboxylic organic compound with the molecular formula C4H6O5. It is a white crystal or crystalline powder which is soluble in water and ethanol. It is synthesized in all living organisms and offers a pleasant, sour taste to fruits like apples, grapes, apricots, blackberries, peaches, pears, strawberries and mangoes. Since this acid effectively absorbs moisture and has antimicrobial properties, it is used to increase the shelf life of packaged food and bakery items. It is also utilized as a preservative, an acidulant for pH control and food additive for flavor enhancement. Apart from food and beverage applications, it is extensively employed across industries like pharmaceutical, soap and detergent as well as cosmetic and personal care.

Global Malic Acid Market Trends:

Malic acid offers numerous health benefits such as easing chronic fatigue syndrome, boosting liver health, aiding weight loss and improving hair quality. Growing awareness about these benefits, along with the increasing health consciousness among consumers, is providing thrust to the growth of the market. In addition to this, the acid is widely employed in the production of protein drinks and sugarless baked goods. The rising prevalence of obesity and diabetes worldwide is influencing the sales of these products. Moreover, favorable regulations by governments of several countries and regulatory authorities are expected to drive the malic acid industry. For instance, EPA regulations regarding the production and consumption of natural ingredients are boosting the sales of products which contain malic acid in Europe. On account of these factors, the global malic acid market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 330.4 Million by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
