Guaiacol Market: Introduction

Guaiacol is a naturally occurring, biodegradable and organic compound that has low potential of bioaccumulation and mainly disperses in water. It is a slightly yellow colored liquid or a crystalline solid with a characteristic aromatic odor. Guaiacol is industrially manufactured by the methylation of catechol and is used in the manufacturing of a variety of chemical products. Vanillin is among the most commonly used chemical in the food industry to flavor ice-creams and chocolates. Guaiacol is used as a precursor in the manufacture of vanillin and is also used in the protection of crops in the agriculture sector. Guaiacol is also used as a raw material in the pharmaceutical industry. The synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredient manufacturing in the pharmaceutical industry uses guaiacol. The characteristic aromatic odor of guaiacol has enabled the use of guaiacol in the manufacture of perfumery agents and flavoring agents. The National Center for Biotechnology Information U.S. has stated that guaiacol is thought to have properties of disinfectants and can be used to treat coughs. Guaiacol is also used to give a peaty, smoky and spicy flavor to whisky and in flavoring roasted coffee.            

Guaiacol Market: Dynamics

The food and beverage industry is growing due to the increasing demand for food, which in turn drives the sales of guaiacol. Population growth has boosted the growth of the pharmaceutical industry and in turn propels the demand for guaiacol. The use of guaiacol in the manufacture of perfumery products will aid the growth of sales of guaiacol in the chemical and allied products industry. The use of guaiacol as an expectorant and its low shelf life also aid the growth of the guaiacol market. On the other hand, the high price of guaiacol will slow down the sales of guaiacol and the use of lignin instead of guaiacol in the manufacture of vanillin may also retard the market growth.
