Succinic Acid Market

Market Insights on Succinic Acid covering sales outlook, demand forecast & up-to-date key trends

Succinic Acid Market: Global Industry Analysis 2012 - 2016 and Opportunity Assessment; 2017 - 2027

Succinic Acid Market Overview

Succinic acid (chemical formula: C4H6O4) is a water-soluble, crystalline, four-carbon di-carboxylic acid. It can be produced from petroleum feedstock or from bio based resources. Generally, succinic acid is produced from maleic anhydride, whereas, synthetically succinic acid is produced from butane via maleic anhydride.

Furthermore, succinic acid is used as a chemical intermediate in the manufacturing of lacquers and perfume esters, in pharmaceutical products. Also, succinic acid is used in foods as a sequestrant, a neutralizing and buffering agent. Being a chemical intermediate, succinic acid is used for the production of polymers such as 1,4-butanediol (BDO) and is used in the production of resins and solvents.

Global Succinic Acid Market: Dynamics

Rising demand for 1,4-butanediol, which is the building block for polyurethanes and for resins & plasticizers, in turn is expected to result in increasing demand for succinic acid. Further, succinic acid is used as a sequestrant in food industry, which helps to improve the stability and quality of food products. Thus, with the growing concern over food quality, the demand for succinic acid is also expected to increase.

Moreover, increasing demand for succinic acid in the production of medicines for arthritis, pain, menopause, etc. is expected to drive the growth of succinic acid market. Also, government initiatives in the developed regions such as in North America and Europe towards adoption of bio-based chemicals in order to support the sustainable development have propelled the demand for the bio-based succinic acid.

Moreover, increasing use of bio-based succinic acid for the manufacture of polyurethanes instead of adipic acid is projected to bolster the succinic acid market growth. However, the fluctuating prices of crude oil are expected to affect the prices of succinic acid as well.

Along with this, relatively higher manufacturing cost for bio-based succinic acid is expected to restrict growth of the market during forecast period. Thus, the development of cost effective manufacturing techniques for bio-based succinic acid will create new opportunities for the growth of succinic acid market.
