Propionic acid (PA) refers to a naturally occurring colorless and corrosive carboxylic acid. It is produced by the chemical reaction of carbon monoxide and water and consists of a short-chain saturated fatty acid attached to a carboxyl carbon. Propionic acid is available in the liquid state and can be commercially synthesized through fermentative, biosynthetic and amino acid catabolic pathways. It is commonly used as a preservative and an additive in packed foods and animal feed to prevent microbial and fungal growth. It also finds extensive applications across various industries, including chemical, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
Significant growth in the agriculture industry, along with the increasing consumption of dairy, livestock and poultry products across the globe, represents one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. Propionic acid is widely used as an efficient grain preservative as it aids in reducing microbial growth in stored grains, hay, poultry litter and water for the livestock. Furthermore, the increasing demand for natural preservatives for ready-to-eat (RTE) and canned food products is also augmenting the market growth. The acid is also added to cheese and baked products to increase their shelf life. In line with this, the esters of the acid are utilized as artificial flavorings or solvents as an alternative to the chemical variants. Additionally, various technological advancements, such as the utilization of co-culture, metabolic and genetic engineering, immobilization technique and bioreactor systems, in the biological production of propionic acid through microorganisms and renewable biomass, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. Moreover, the increasing concerns regarding food safety, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities in the field of biotechnology, are anticipated to drive the market further.
