Carboxylic Acids Market Dynamics and trends

Increasing use of Carboxylic Acids in personal care products, rising applications of Carboxylic acid in animal feed and the rise of the global food and beverage industry are the major factors driving the global Carboxylic Acid market.

The increasing demand for animal feed globally is a major factor driving the global carboxylic acid market owing to the increasing applications of carboxylic acids in animal feeds.  Animal feeds provide essential protein, fiber, and energy to the livestock, which results in increased yield and also helps save costs incurred on adding additional protein and supplement additives. According to the statistics published by the US Department of Agriculture, global beef and veal production increased from 59,710 tons in 2015 to 60,478 tons in 2016. This value increased to 61,624 tons in 2017, finally reaching 62,878 tons in 2018. Owing to these factors, the global carboxylic acid market is expected to rise in the forecast period.

However, stringent regulations imposed by various organizations such as the FDA and the high cost of carboxylic acid are the crucial factors that might impede the growth of the market in the forecast period.

The region will be a driving force in establishing trends during the forecast period. According to a report by Loreal, a global cosmetic brand, the APAC region currently holds ~32% of the global beauty and personal care marketplace.

Vendors in the market are sensitive to local trends and competition.

Whereas in China and India, there is a strong interest in local ingredients and herbal traditions and the properties that these essential oils and other products can bring to personal care products and cosmetics.
