The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “India Acetic Acid Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the India acetic acid market size reached 1.13 Million Tons in 2021. Acetic acid, also known as methane carboxylic acid or ethanoic acid, is a colorless compound produced by the carbonylation of methanol or oxidation of natural carbohydrates. It is characterized by a sour, strong, and pungent smell and is extensively utilized to produce vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), metal acetates, purified terephthalic acid (PTA), cellulose acetate, and ethyl and butyl acetates. It is also used as a cleaning agent in households and as an intermediary in manufacturing coatings, sealants, and greases across numerous industry verticals.

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.
