Oxalic Acid Market Buoyed by Developments in Pharma and Petrochemical Industries; COVID-19 Outbreak Results in Price Volatility: FMI

Apr 06,2020 | Chemicals & Materials

Oxalic acid serves almost all major end-use industries, including water treatment chemicals, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, and others. According to a recent Future Market Insights (FMI) study, the global oxalic acid is expected to reach the valuation of US$ 1.1 Bn by 2029.

The industrial sector in Asia Pacific is growing at a substantial rate, thereby increasing the demand for oxalic acid in the region. Moreover, increasing concerns related to water treatment are expected to fuel the growth of the global oxalic acid in the foreseeable future.

The Potential Impact of COVID-19

The novel coronavirus outbreak has been sweeping across regions and the global economic order. In line with this, the oxalic acid market is expected to witness dip in value creation due to price volatility, short-term market uncertainties, and decreasing adoption in majority of key application areas. Travel restrictions imposed by governments worldwide will hamper the market growth, especially business activities that require face-to-face meetings. Furthermore, logistical hurdles will remain a challenge, considering short-term growth projection of the market.  

“The global healthcare landscape is changing rapidly, and people are spending more on their health-related needs. Factors such as changing lifestyles, food habits, sleeping habits, etc., are contributing to this change. With people getting more health conscious, the demand for pharmaceuticals is increasing across the globe, in turn, leading to the high consumption of oxalic acid.”

Market Landscape: Fairly Fragmented

The global oxalic acid market is fairly fragmented, owing to a number of players holding small shares in the market space. The top ten established players account for more than half of the total supply. Manufacturers are focusing on strengthening their partnerships with end users and government entities. Key players such as Mudanjiang Fengda Chemical Co., Ltd., Oxaquim, Merck KGaA, UBE Industries Ltd., Clariant International Limited, Indian Oxalate Limited, Shijiazhuang Taihe Chemical Co., Ltd., Spectrum Chemical Manufacturing Corp., Shandong Fengyuan Chemical Co., Ltd., Penta s.r.o., and others, are also focusing on marking their direct presence in local markets.
