The market for carboxylic acids is largely driven by growth of vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) in the food packaging industry; high demand for stearic, butyric, and valeric acid in the personal care & cosmetics industry; and rising usage of organic acids as growth promoters in animal feed. However, factors such as enactment of stringent government regulations on the production of petro-based carboxylic acids and availability of organic and natural substitutes in the animal feed industry hamper market market. End-use industries such as lubricants, rubber, and agrochemicals are likely to provide immense growth opportunities to manufacturers of carboxylic acids.

Acetic acid dominated the global carboxylic acids market in terms of volume in 2014. The segment accounted for nearly 42.5% of the global carboxylic acids market in 2014. It is estimated to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period. Acetic acid is majorly used in the production of vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), PTA, acetic anhydride, etc. Some carboxylic acids such as citric acid, acetic acid, and benzoic acid are widely used as preservatives in the food & beverages end-user industry. Citric acid is largely used as a flavor enhancer in beverages such as teas and juices to impart tart flavor and balance sweetness. Stearic acid held significant share of the global carboxylic acids market, as the acid is extensively used in the manufacture of adhesives & sealants, agrochemicals, chemical intermediates, additives, pigments, and surface active agents. Acids used in animal feed industry such as formic acid, propionic acid, and butyric acid are projected to expand at an average rate during the forecast period.
