Bio-Based Acetic Acid Market

Rising Demand for Vinyl Acetate Monomers to Provide Impetus to Bio-based Acetic Acid Market Growth, Evaluates Fact.MR 

Published : 25 Aug 2021 Industry: Chemical & Materials

As per a new report published by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the global bio-based acetic acid market is forecast to exceed a valuation of US$ 45.6 Mn by 2021, and expand at a CAGR of more than 5% over the forecast period of 2021 to 2031.

Bio-based acetic acid has huge potential in the chemical industry. This potential could be evaluated utilizing the rate of consumption of bio-based acetic acid in the production of vinyl acetate monomers (VAMs).  Growing utilization of vinyl acetate monomers is being seen as an intermediate in the production of a wide range of resins and polymers for adhesives, paints & coatings, glues & sealants, textile finishes, elastomers, films, binders, and other industrial and consumer goods applications. Extensive diversification of VAMs provides an image of robust market growth of bio-based acetic acid for the coming years.

Moreover, dynamic and stringent environmental standards adopted by policy makers across the globe to curb carbon footprint are also paving the way for increased adoption of bio-based acetic acid by titans in the chemical industry.

Key Takeaways from Market Study

  • Bio-based acetic acid usage in food products is forecast to register a CAGR of 5.9% and be valued at US$ 30 Mn by 2031-end.
  • Textile industry end use is expected to hold 12.2% market value share by 2031-end, but is anticipated to lose 51 BPS in its market share by then.
  • Chemical production is anticipated to capture 28.7% market value share by 2031-end, and is projected to gain 114 BPS.
  • Acidity regulator function has the highest growth potential in the bio-based acetic acid market in terms of market acceptance. This function is expected to gain 251 BPS by 2031.
  • Bio-based acetic acid usage in pharma products is projected to grow 1.5X in value during the forecast period, while usage in personal care products is projected to grow 1.4X.

“Rising inclination towards sustainability and focus on strengthening the bio-based economy are anticipated to open new opportunities for bio-based acetic acid manufacturers,” says a Fact.MR analyst.

Winning Strategy

Prominent manufacturers have been focusing on developing a cost-effective production process of bio-based acetic acid. There are multiple companies owning bio-refineries with billions of dollars in annual revenues. But most of them are not focused on processing bio-based acetic acid due to the complex production process along with high costs associated with it. C

Companies with an effective production process and the capability of constant debottlenecking could survive the burden of margin maintenance and revenue generation over the coming years.
