Succinic Acid Market by Source (Petroleum and Bio-based), Application (1,4 BDO, Polyurethane, Food, Resins, Coatings, Pigments, Plasticizers, Pharmacy, De-icer solutions, PBS, PBST, Solvents & Lubricants, Cosmetics, Others) - Global Trends & Forecast to 2019
Show Full Description
Succinic acid is an important intermediate chemical witnessing high demand. It is a building-block chemical for producing many specialty and commodity chemicals that are used in a wide range of applications, such as polymers, food, metals, pharmaceutical, coatings, fibers, solvents, lubricating oils, diesel fuel oxygenates, and cosmetics. The key application is 1, 4BDO, which accounted for ~17% in terms of value of the global succinic acid market in 2013, followed by plasticizers, resins, coatings, pigments, pharmaceuticals and PBS/ PBST.
Europe is the biggest market of succinic acid; it accounted for a share of ~36.3% of total market size in terms of value in 2013. There is tremendous scope for succinic acid in the Asia-Pacific market due to the growth of China’s economy and rapid industrialization in the region. Currently, the reach of succinic acid is increasing in the Pharmaceuticals & Personal Care application which propels the growth in terms of value and volume, thus driving the end-user demand. The increased domestic production of bio-based succinic acid is further adding to the rising demand in pharmaceuticals & cosmetics application in the Asia-pacific region.
The increasing cost of the conventional feedstock and regulations on conventional chemicals are the major barriers for the growth of the Succinic acid market. However, the negative environmental impact of the conventional succinic acid is anticipated to drive the demand for bio-based Succinic acid globally. Expansion (facility and capacity) and partnership & collaboration are identified as key strategies which are helping the key players to further expand their reach in the global succinic acid market.
