Global Erucic Acid: Overview
The evolving trend of manufacturing chemical substances from the green feedstock is fueling the erucic acid market significantly. Increasing demand for erucic acid in metalworking and plastic additives industry is also creating ample opportunities for manufacturers operating in the erucic acid market. HEAR (High Erucic Acid Rapeseed Oil) is widely utilized by numerous industries, which contains about 43% of erucic acid. Global consumption of erucic acid for industrial applications stood at more than 1.2 Mn tons. Historically, demand for erucic acid in the food and pharmaceutical industry has witnessed stagnant growth in the recent past, however, the demand is likely to improve, especially in the food and pharmaceutical industry in the years to come.
A wide range of applications in plastic, personal care, and lubricants is likely to boost the demand for erucic acid in Asian countries. Certain drawbacks of erucic acid in terms of its end-use applications has been created concern among consumer groups. For instance, high concentration of erucic acid in vegetable oils leads to severe heart-related issues such as deposition of triglyceride. Rigorous R&D activities are essential to eliminate such drawbacks and thus improve product lifecycle of erucic acid.
Spurt in Erucic Acid Demand Observed in Asian Countries
The global market of erucic acid is likely to experience substantial growth during the forecast period, owing to the increasing demand for food additives and various industrial applications. Erucic acid will grow substantially during the forecast period, largely dominated by East Asia, which is expected to continue throughout the forecast period. Europe and North America are expected to showcase a significant growth over the forecast period.
Key players in the erucic acid market are focusing on developing erucic acid, especially for the use of antioxidants in the preservation of edible oils. Growing regulations for use of environmental friendly additives for polymer processing, lubricants, and metal-working industry is expected to boost market growth in the developed countries. Demand for erucic acid by plastic and polymer industries in China is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for the manufacturers for bulk orders.
Availability of Ample opportunities in Fish Feed Products
Erucic acid has a long chain of fatty acid, which is essential for any animal feed ingredient. Erucic acid is present in several feed ingredients, where fish feed has been observed to be amongst the key end use sectors. Plenty of research and development activities are being carried out by researchers to minimize side-effect of erucic acid on fish. Although, the usage of erucic acid in fish feed is in a nascent stage, with these R&D efforts it has a potential to become an important end-use sector by the end of forecast period.
