About Butyric Acid

Butyric acid is a 4-carbon oxychemical. It is a carboxylic acid, which is oily and colorless, and occurs in many dairy products like milk, cheese, and butter. Butyric acid has esters and salts known as butanoates and butyrates. It exhibits an unpleasant smell and also has an acrid taste. It is used in stink bombs for its pungent smell. Some of its derivative chemicals and esters are sweet smelling. The characteristics of the odor depend on precise chemical compositions of the derivatives and esters.

The analysts forecast the global butyric acid market to grow at a CAGR of 12.27% during the period 2016-2020.

New Report Released: – Global Butyric Acid Market 2016-2020

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global butyric acid market: Blue Marble Biomaterials, Eastman, Thermo Fisher, OXEA, Perstorp, Tokyo Chemical Industry, Beijing Huamaoyuan Fragrance Flavor, Snowco, Alfa Aesar, and Sigma-Aldrich.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “The trend in gaining acceptance of butyric acid as an aid to reduce the effects of intestinal diseases and as a nutrient to improve gut health in livestock will continue to drive the butyric acid market during the forecast period. Reduction in environmental pollution associated with the livestock industry has also been another factor that resulted in increased use of the feed additives such as butyric acid.”

According to the report, the sustainable livestock production is the overall driver, which leads to improvement regarding feed digestibility. This factor will be a key driver for market growth. A good quality feed conversion decreases the ecological footprint of animal protein production and has the advantage of lower feed costs for the farmers.

Further, the report states that one of the major barriers for butyrate fermentation is the inability of single butyrate-producing strains to degrade substrate under different fermentation conditions. This results in less yield of butyric acid-based products compared with the amount of substrate used. Another challenge for butyrate fermentation process is in facilitating the growth of microbes on the substrate.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
