Posted: May 31, 2018
Acetic acid also finds major usage in household as food additive and condiment. Growing food demand on account of increasing population is anticipated to have positive impact on synthetic adipic acid market over the next six years. Vinyl acetate monomer and PTA are the major application segments of acetic acid. Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) is primarily used in PET manufacturing. Growing PET demand in bottle packaging industry is expected to influence the acetic acid market over the next six years. South Asia is the major PET bottle market owing to growing demand from packaging industry. This trend is expected to drive the regional Acetic Acid Market over the foreseeable period.
According to a recent study conducted by Hexa Research, global acetic acid market will be valued at more than $13 billion in 2022. Growing demand for applications like Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) and Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM) will contribute to this growth. PTA is increasingly being consumed for manufacturing polyester, which is an important constituent of the textile and packaging industries. PTA is expected to witness the fastest growth with a CAGR of more than 4.9% from 2015 to 2022. The total global acetic acid demand for PTA was more than 2,450 kilo tons in 2014, which is likely to rise to more than 3,750 kilo tons in 2020
