Published By: Brisk Insights | Published On: Jun 9, 2017

Key Findings

The Global Acetic Acid Market has been projected to grow at the CAGR of 5.25% market during 2017-2025. In 2016, the market has generated the revenue of $ 5.75 billion and is expected to reach $ 7.78 billion in terms of revenue by 2025.


Acetic acid, also known as ethanoic acid, is a synthetic carboxylic acid with antibacterial and antifungal properties. The chemical is used in a variety of applications that include agricultural chemicals, pigments, and paint adhesives, as solvents, plasticizers, corrosion inhibitors, adhesive chemicals, paper products, water treatment products and others.


Market Segment Insights

The application segments covered in the study include vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), purified terephthalic acid (PTA), acetate esters and acetic anhydride and others. Vinyl acetate monomer is the largest application segment for acetic acid. It accounted for 33% share of the market in 2016 in terms of volume and revenue. The market is mainly driven by huge demand of VAM from adhesive and sealant industry. Acetate Esters segment is projected to be the highest growth segment of the market, which is primarily driven by the growing demand from coatings industry. Subsequently, the budding textile and packaging industry is pushing the demand for PTA, which in turn is driving the demand for acetic acid at a notable pace.


Regional Insights

Globally, Asia-Pacific is the largest market and all of its downstream derivatives, which consumed more than 60% of the overall global consumption in 2016. In Asia Pacific, China accounts for more than 35% share of the market. The country consumed maximum volume of this product in 2016. The market volume of acetic acid and its various byproducts is relatively low in the ROW region, but is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2025, followed by the Asia-Pacific region. North America and Europe are comparatively mature markets and are projected to witness average growth rates during the forecast period.
