'Propionic Acid & Derivatives Market By Applications (Animal Feed & Grain Preservatives, Food Preservatives, Herbicides, Cellulose Acetate Propionate) & Geography – Global Trends & Forecasts To 2018'

Propionic acid is a three-carbon carboxylic acid with a molecular formula of CH3CH2COOH. It is a clear, colorless liquid with a pungent odor. It is commercially manufactured by the hydrocarboxylation of ethylene in the presence of nickel carbonyl catalyst. Propionic acid and derivatives are largely used as feed and food preservatives. It inhibits the growth of molds and bacteria. Propionic acid is also used to make some specialized propionates, such as cellulose acetate propionate (CAP), which is a useful thermoplastic. The other applications of propionic acid and derivatives include herbicides, pharmaceuticals, and solvents. Propionic acid may cause irritation to the human body in case of contact, so various health organizations are involved in continuously monitoring its exposure levels.

The global market for propionic acid and derivatives has grown significantly during the past few years and is expected to grow at a more rapid pace in the next five READ MORE >

Propionic acid and derivatives are widely used in feed preservatives, grain preservatives, and food preservatives as they regarded as one of the safest additives available in the market. In addition, they are also used in herbicides, cellulose acetate propionate, esters, fragrances, etc.

The global demand for propionic acid and derivatives is increasing on the back of growing consumption for animal feed and grain preservatives. In addition, propionates' demand in the food preservative segments is also likely to jump in the coming years due to rising demand to increase the shelf life of the food on the global level. However, demand is likely to be affected by limited production capacity and lack of technological innovation.

The global market in terms of revenue was estimated to be worth $944.6 million in 2012 and is expected to reach $1,622.2 million by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 7.3% from 2013 to 2018. Europe dominated the global propionic acid and derivatives market in 2012. Emerging markets are likely to fuel the future growth of propionic acid and derivatives.

The propionic acid and derivatives consumption in the developed markets is more than the developing markets. There are a handful of propionic acid producers which dominate the market. The majority of these companies' plants are located in the developed markets. However, demand from the emerging markets is increasing due to rising awareness about the benefits of propionic acid and derivatives. The dominant producers of propionic acid are BASF SE (Germany), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Perstorp (Sweden), and Eastman Chemical (U.S.), while Niacet Corporation (U.S.) and Macco (Canada) among others.
