Global Dichloroacetic Acid Market Research Report 2023-Competitive Analysis, Status and Outlook by Type, Downstream Industry, and Geography, Forecast to 2029

Global Dichloroacetic Acid Market Research Report 2023-Competitive Analysis, Status and Outlook by Type, Downstream Industry, and Geography, Forecast to 2029

Dichloroacetic acid is an organic compound, a colorless liquid with a pungent odor. It is a product in which the two hydrogens on the methyl group of the acetic acid molecule are replaced by chlorine. Dichloroacetic acid can form salts or esters, and its salts can inhibit pyruvate dehydrogenase. Dichloroacetic acid can be used as pesticide and pharmaceutical intermediates, as well as organic synthesis intermediates for the production of methyl dichloroacetate, medical allantoin, and cationic dyes.

Market Overview:

The latest research study on the global Dichloroacetic Acid market finds that the global Dichloroacetic Acid market reached a value of USD 621.87 million in 2022. It’s expected that the market will achieve USD 809.37 million by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.49% during the forecast period.

Demand in the Asia-Pacific region will grow rapidly

As the population from the Asia-Pacific region, such as China and India, continues to increase, demand and consumption are also increasing, and the pesticide and pharmaceutical industries in the Asia-Pacific region are rising. India occupies an important position in the global pharmaceutical industry. India is the world's largest producer of generic drugs. Due to a growing middle class and an aging society, increasing incomes and accelerating urbanization, China's pharmaceutical market is rapidly rising. In addition, agriculture is the main source of livelihood for about 58% of India's population. Many Asian countries are large agricultural producers. The demand for agrochemicals will drive the demand for dichloroacetic acid in the market. Therefore, driven by the development of agriculture, medicine and industry, the dichloroacetic acid market in the Asia-Pacific region will develop rapidly during the forecast period.

Increased demand for agrochemicals

Due to the growing population, the continuous advancement of agricultural technology, and the advancement of global plant breeding and management expertise, the demand for the use of agrochemicals has increased. According to United Nations data, the amount of food needed by 2050 will be 70% more than the current demand. In emerging economies such as China and India, growing populations and greater economic prosperity will further boost food production. According to a survey conducted by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), pests and pathogens cause nearly 40 billion U.S. dollars in losses to plant and forest crop production in the United States every year. This statistical data reflects the large-scale demand for agricultural chemicals such as pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and insecticides. Therefore, the increase in food demand has led to an increase in the demand for the use of crop protection chemicals such as herbicides and pesticides. Dichloroethylene is a pesticide intermediate, and the increasing demand for agrochemicals promotes the development of the dichloroethylene market.
