The organic acids market is exceptionally competitive with the presence of numerous players. However, manufacturers holding majority of the share are Dow Dupont, BASF, Eastman Chemical Company, LyondellBasell Industries N.V., Celanese Corporation, and many more.
The key focus of manufacturers is on the advancement of production technologies, reduction of raw material costs, and expansion in emerging markets.
Organic acids are produced industrially by the fermentation process, or by chemical synthesis. In recent years, due to the advancements in biotechnology, a significant amount of organic acids are being produced by the fermentation process from natural resources.
According to the research study, the global organic acids market is expected to witness steady growth with a CAGR of around 5% during the long-term forecast. This growth is attributed to the increased demand from the food & beverages and pharmaceutical industries.
Organic acids are widely used in the food & beverages industry, due to the versatile anti-oxidant properties. There are over 600 organic acids available globally, and the food & beverages industry consumes over 45% of the organic acids.
Moreover, it is also used in various niche applications such as detergents, cosmetics, animal feed, and industrial & chemical processing applications.
Food & Beverages Remains the Major Hotspot for the Global Organic Acids Market
The food & beverages industry is one of the key end users of organic acids. The rising global population, coupled with GDP growth, will pique the demand for organic acids in the forthcoming years.
Also, high growth witnessed in the pharmaceutical industry is expected to augur well for the market, owing to the increasing use of organic acids in various drugs such as aspirin and phenacetin.
Meanwhile, the demand for organic acids will continue to scale higher in the food and beverages industry on the back of its increasing use in the production of soft drinks and various food products.
Organic acids are quite suitable for use in the food & beverages industry. Acetic acid accounted for the largest share in terms of demand for organic acids. Its increased use in the food & beverages industry, owing to its antibacterial and antifungal properties, is a significant growth attribute for the market.
In the bakery and confectionery industry, both acetic and citric acid are used for the prevention of fungal and bacterial growth. Other than their use for antibacterial and antifungal properties, organic acids are also useful in regulating acidity, used as preservatives, antioxidants, and flavor enhancers in several food products.

Niche Applications to Bring Lucrative Opportunities in the Future
Apart from the food & beverages industry, organic acids find numerous applications in diverse industries such as paints & coatings, feed, adhesive & sealants, textiles, consumer goods, and many more. Acetic acid accounts for the lion’s share in the global organic acids market.
Acetic acid finds a vast application in the production of vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), terephthalic acid, and ethyl acetate. Organic acids, such as formic acid and citric acid, are mainly used in animal feed as a preservative. Formic acid also finds applications in deicing, oil-drilling, leather tanning, etc.
Lactic acid sees massive demand in the production of polylactic acid. It is also used as an acidifier in cosmetics applications and disinfectant in pharmaceuticals. Propionic acid, other than food and feed application, is widely used in the production of propionate esters for solvents, such as n-butyl and pentyl propionate.
Other organic acids, such as ascorbic acid, acetic acid, gluconic acid, fumaric acid, malic acid, also find numerous applications in diverse industries that bring growth prospects for the overall organic acids market.
Bio-based Version to Attract Investments and Collaborations
Increasing preference towards renewable and bio-based chemicals – on the back of stringent government regulations is influencing chemical industries towards investments in the expansion and development of existing organic acid production facilities.
Growing requirements for green substitutes and the crucial need to improve bio-refining processes are creating opportunities for organic acid manufacturers. For instance, bio-succinic acid has surpassed the petroleum-based succinic acid in terms of demand owing to its cost-competitiveness, and growing adoption in production of biodegradable plastics.
In addition to this, with the advancement in biotechnology, manufacturers have successfully adopted fermentation process for the production of organic acids. Commercially viable organic acid technologies have been attracting investments and partnerships between leading market stakeholders.
