The acetic acid market, along with its end products, has witnessed a linear growth in the past few years and this growth is estimated to increase in the coming years. Acetic acid is one of the basic organic chemical raw materials mainly used in the production of cellulose acetate for photographic film and polyvinyl acetate for wood glue, as well as synthetic fibers and markets, and as a food additive code. The quality, high efficiency, and environmentally acceptability are some of the major features that create an upsurge in the demand for acetic acid; and the upcoming safety regulations & innovative techniques for its use will be the key influencing factors for the acetic acid market with the increased emphasis on its applications.

 

The acetic acid market is experiencing enormous growth which is expected to continue in the near future, mainly driven by the highly growing Asia-Pacific, Europe, and North America regions and the intense efforts at country level to promote environment-friendly and recyclable products. Considerable amount of investments are made by various market players to serve the end-user applications industry in the future. The European region accounted for about 19% market share of the total global demand in 2014. The region is further expected to show high growth in the future, mainly due to the high growth potential of the agriculture market in Germany and the U.K.

 

Almost 31% of the total acetic acid demand was for vinyl acetate monomer applications in 2014, with the polyvinyl acetate for wood glue and automotive industry being the fastest-growing end-use segment, primarily due to high market reach in all regions. 

 

The drivers of the industry are: budding vinyl acetate monomer demand, growing textile and packaging industry, and the increasing market reach of ester solvents in coating industries.
