Glacial acetic acid Market: Introduction

Acetic acid, also known as ethanoic acid, is a colorless liquid with a chemical formula CH3COOH. A glacial acetic acid is an anhydrous form of acetic acid and the purest form with less than 1% of water. Glacial acetic acid solidifies into acetic acid crystals at around 16.7oC. The most widely used manufacturing process for acetic acid is a methanol carbonylation process which accounts for more than 80% of the global acetic acid production. Glacial acetic acid finds a wide range of applications such as preservative in food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, paints, coatings, inks and vinegar. It is also used in the production of terephthalic acid, synthetic camphor, aniline, propylene terephthalate, etc. The global glacial acetic acid consumption is approximately around seven metric tons, out of which about 20%-25% is recycled every year.

Glacial Acetic Acid Market: Market Dynamics

The key growth driving factor for the global glacial acetic acid market is its use in pharmaceuticals and food & beverage industry. The global pharmaceutical industry is on the rise owing to consumer lifestyles, increasing spending power and disposable income of consumers. This drives the demand for a number of pharmaceutical ingredients, of which glacial acetic acid is a part. Furthermore, the application of glacial acetic acid as a flavoring agent in the food & beverage industry is the key for demand growth of glacial acetic acid. Also, the growth of the glacial acetic acid market is projected by its application as an organic solvent widely used in paints & coating and pharmaceutical field. Moreover, the majority of glacial acetic acid is consumed in the production of vinyl acetate monomer. The vinyl acetate monomer has a wide range of application in paints & coating, adhesives and textile processing. Thus, with the growing demand for vinyl acetate monomer worldwide, the demand for the glacial acetic acid market has increased globally.
