According to IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Organic Acids Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026”, the global organic acids market reached a value of US$ XX Billion in 2020. Organic acids refer to organic compounds with weak acidic properties and low molecular mass. They can be produced through fermentation of molasses, starch, biomass, or agro-industrial residues, including coffee husk, cassava bagasse, apple pomace, soybean, corn cobs, sugarcane, press-mud, wheat bran, etc. Some commonly utilized organic acids include carboxyl, formic, lactic, propionic, gluconic, malic, and benzoic acids. Organic acids are highly beneficial in chelating metallic ions and the stimulation treatments of oil and gas. They are widely used as acidulants, emulsifiers, flavor enhancers, etc. Compared to the traditional mineral acids, organic acids are less reactive and are functional even in extreme temperatures. Consequently, they find extensive applications in manufacturing animal feed, food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, etc.

The growing food and beverage industry across the globe is one of the key factors driving the organic acids market. In line with this, the rising demand for ready-to-eat (RTE) food products made with organic acids to prevent the growth of bacteria is further catalyzing the market growth. Moreover, the widespread product adoption as a substitute for antibiotic growth promoters (AGP) in the animal feed is acting as another significant growth-inducing factor. Apart from this, the shifting preferences for personal care products and multifunctional cosmetics fortified with citric and formic acids are augmenting the global market. Furthermore, the launch of favorable initiatives by several government bodies to encourage the production of bio-based organic acids from renewable resources is also bolstering the market growth. In the coming years, the increasing product utilization to produce various intermediates and petrochemical products is anticipated to fuel the organic acids market across the globe. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of XX% during 2021-2026.
