CCM has finished a market report named Production and Market of Lactic Acid in China in Nov 2009. In order to meet clients’ different demands and provide more low-price products, we separated it into many sub-reports with different specific themes. Production Situation of Lactic Acid in China is one of the sub-reports.
China has a long history in the production of lactic acid, and has witnessed fast development in the past few years, playing an increasingly important role in global lactic acid supply. According to the data from China's Industrial Biotechnology Development Report released in 2009, China’s lactic acid output accounts for about 30% of the global total in 2008. However, after rapid expansion, the country’s lactic acid capacity has been surplus with limited domestic demand and slowing growth in export.
