Key Factors Which Will Drive Sales of Glacial Acetic Acid

Acetic acid has witnessed its applications in various industry such as pharmaceuticals and food and beverages being among the key factors driving the product potential. Manufacturers in the pharmaceutical industry inclined towards investment in expanding the production facilities to have a significant impact on the growth of the acetic acid market. It is used as pH regulators in formulations. Many pharmaceutical medications are not stable at alkaline pH, so to improve product stability over time, hence acetic acid is used to regulate the pH of the liquid formulation.

Furthermore, it has a wide range of application in food and beverage industry as it acts as a flavoring agent and also with the increase in demand of special foods and beverages are likely to drive the sale of the product throughout the assessment period. The addition of glacial acetic acid to meals enhance the flavor of numerous dishes due to its distinct sour taste and strong odor. Pickles, sweet and sour chips, and sourdough bread get the sour flavor in the addition of glacial acetic acid.

As a result, the demand is likely to be drive by all of the aforementioned drivers and will lead to an increase in the sale of the product.

COVID-19 Impact on the Market

The chemical sector has an adverse effect due to the impact of the COVID-19 as there is supply chain disruptions as well as the market uncertainly. Many production facilities have been shut down due to the widespread of the coronavirus hampered the growth. As a result, the demand for product witnessed a dip. However, the products necessity in formulating few healthcare medicines acted as rainy day fund in the hard times.
