Succinic Acid Market Analysis

The global succinic acid market size reached US$ 176.2 Million in 2023. By 2032, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 315.8 Million, at a projected CAGR of 6.70% during 2023-2032.

  • Succinic acid acts as the major consolidating link of different industrial sectors due to its versatility. It is a major method of the creation of biodegradable plastics, pharmaceuticals, and food additives. As per the data from the U.S. Department of Energy, succinic acid market is anticipated to exhibit compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24.5% during a period extending from 2020-to 2027. The spurt is predominantly labeled to shift towards the sustainable substitutes for the regular petrochemical-based products. Industries start to see that succinic acid as a good alternative that not only can meet environmental expectations but also perform at a high level. With growing global regulations on the magnitude to curtail greenhouse gas emissions in line with environment conservation, succinic acid is coming out as prominent figure promoting more environmentally friendly industrial procedures.
  • The development of regulations with the intention to limit carbon print has in effect been driven by the high demand for the price of the green alternatives which include succinic acid. The European Environment Agency issues regular reports forecasting a substantial rise in the share of Europe in the succinic acid market, which is expected to reach a global worth of $489 million by 2025. This growth is caused by its relevance to steer the economy shifting towards a circular model. One of many advantages of succinic acid is that it is obtained from renewable resources and it is biodegradable, which is in-line with the theories of sustainable development. While reaching for the environmental standards, the succinic acid plays a vital role for replacement of the fossil fuels and for diminishing the adverse weather effects with different segments of industry.
  • Succinic acid production, from renewable resources, is in line with the worldwide trend of sustainability and efficiency in resource use. The United Nations Industrial Development Organization recognizes the growing investment in bio-based succinic acid production as one of the major forces behind sustainable industrial development. Contrasted with traditional petrochemical ways, bio-based production lines would be a greener alternative with a 35% decrease in greenhouse gas emission. Biomass and waste streams serve as useful feedstocks for succinic acid production which provides an opportunity to valorize renewable resources and decrease reliance on fossil fuels. Governments and industries are becoming more aware of protecting the planet and therefore transitioning towards the alternatives of bio-based materials to minimize negative environmental impacts and create a better future. Succinic acid's role in this transition highlights its capacity as the main factor of the global economy renewable resource utilization development.

Succinic Acid News

Product Description

Succinic acid, a dicarboxylic acid, attracts a fresh wave of interest for its multisided applications throughout the different industries. Its applicability is much broader than that of being the base chemical for forming different compounds to also playing a fundamental role in formation of biodegradable plastics, medicines, and food additives. Succinic acid can be sourced from both petrochemical sources and renewable sources, and thus it becomes a sustainable substitute taking into consideration the environment. The function of nanoscale materials as building blocks or agents for green chemistry initiatives combined with its biocompatibility makes it an attractive candidate for a range of applications. Moreover, the position of succinic acid in also promoting sustainability is congruous with the world's endeavors to decrease carbon emissions and embrace circular economy. While industries pursue green ways in their production processes, succinic acid is unveiled to be an effective route to fulfill both the environmental and financial aims. Their research work and development discoveries demonstrate its relevance in green chemistry and being a major player in clean industrial procedures.

Europe Succinic Acid Price

The succinic acid prices in Europe were seen to experience ups and downs mainly due to some factors in Q3 2023. Initially, the El Nino effect, which was the cause of the disruptions in the Asian product supply chain, led to extended logistics for the importation of goods coming from Asia. Besides that, the demand of dried Polyester manufacturers also decreased, because of the slowdown in the textiles sector. At the mid-quarter, the demand of buyers reduced due to decreased absorption of food acidity regulator, added some pressure to the prices. These two factors together have led to turbulence in the price dynamics during the quarter, as the supply chain disruptions were also accompanied by decreased demand.

Region Countries Covered
Europe Germany, France, United Kingdom, Italy,  Spain, Russia, Turkey, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Belgium, Austria, Ireland, Switzerland, Norway, Denmark, Romania, Finland, Czech Republic, Portugal, and Greece, among other European countries.

North America Succinic Acid Price

In North America, in the final quarter of 2023, there were price fluctuations of succinic acid as a result of moderate demand and supply characteristics. Apart from this, the sellers were able to maintain the prices as the import expenses went up. But toward the mid-quarter, there were unstable prices while exhibiting a bearish trend that resulted from improved supply as well as poor demand from the food sector corresponding to high inflation.
