About Lactic Acid

Lactic acid is an organic compound found both in the liquid and solid state. Its chemical formula is C3H6O3. It generally consists of a hydroxyl group and a carboxyl group. In the solid state, the acid is generally white in color and is soluble in water. It is produced naturally and synthetically as natural production is cost-effective and raw materials are abundant. Fermentation of carbohydrates, such as lactose, sucrose, and glucose, is the common method used in the production of lactic acid commercially.

The analysts forecast the global lactic acid market to grow at a CAGR of 16.73% during the period 2017-2021.

New Report Released: - Global Lactic Acid Market 2017-2021

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global lactic acid market: Corbion, Cargill, Futerro, Henan Jindan Lactic Acid Technology, Galactic, Musashino Chemical Laboratory, and NatureWorks.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: BASF, Bioprox, Cellulac, Chongqing Bofei Biochemical Products, Jungbunzlauer, Myriant Corporation, Plaxica, Syconium Lactic Acid, TEIJIN LIMITED, The DOW Chemical Company, thyssenkrupp, Vaishnavi Bio Tech, Wuhan Sanjiang Space Good Biotech, and Yancheng Haijianuo Biological Engineering.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One trend in the market is increase in consumer awareness toward organic products. Rising health awareness globally has made some significant effects in various industries. Many products that are not biodegradable harm the environment and human life. Hence, many regulations are passed by various government agencies and regulatory authorities.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increase in demand from polylactic acid. Lactic acid is used in various applications. It is largely used as a feedstock for the production of polylactic acid through the fermentation process of lactide intermediate. Lactic acid is first oligomerized and depolymerized to produce lactide. The synthesis of polylactic acid through polycondensation of the lactic acid monomer provide average molecular weights, whereas ring opening polymerization of lactides provide normal sub-atomic weights. Therefore, lactic acid is used as a major component for the production of polylactic acid.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is lactic acid bacteria in optimizing and controlling metabolic activities. Lactic acid is used in applications such as food, beverages, and pharmaceuticals. The unique characteristic of lactic acid makes it suitable to be used in various applications. Nevertheless, lactic acid bacteria are largely used in food and beverages. The major limitation of lactic acid bacteria lies in optimizing and controlling metabolic activities. Only a few nutritional limitations are controlled, while others are held constant. Properties of lactic acid bacteria such as fastidiousness and variation in nutritional requirements among strains limits the use of lactic acid in food and beverages.

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.
