'Acetaldehyde Market by Process (Wacker Process, Oxidation of Ethanol, Dehydrogenation of Ethanol), Derivative (Pyridine & Pyridine Bases, Pentaerythritol), Application (Food & Beverage, Chemicals, Paints & Coatings), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022'

The rising use of acetaldehyde in the food & beverage, chemical manufacture, plastics, and paint industries; and high growth in emerging countries drive the acetaldehyde market.

The acetaldehyde market is estimated at USD 1.33 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 1.80 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.24% between 2017 and 2022. Acetaldehyde, also known as ethanal, is an aldehyde used as a starting material in the production of pyridines, ethyl acetate, n-butyl alcohol, and other chemical compounds. Pure acetaldehyde is a colorless, flammable liquid, miscible with water, with a pungent and fruity odor. Acetaldehyde is synthesized naturally and is also produced synthetically on a large scale for various commercial applications and as an important chemical intermediate. The demand for acetaldehyde is growing in emerging economies, such as India, China, and Brazil. Acetaldehyde is mainly used as an intermediate for the synthesis of other chemicals. The major derivatives of acetaldehyde are pentaerythritol, which is used in the manufacture of synthetic resins for the paint industry; and pyridines which are used as solvents in the production of rubber and dyes.

Water treatment segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR in the acetaldehyde market

Based on application, the water treatment segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. Acetaldehyde plays a vital role in wastewater treatment owing to its disinfectant properties. Acetaldehyde is used for the treatment of wastewater from various industries and manufacturing plants. The demand for acetaldehyde from the water treatment application is gaining momentum due to rising environmental impact, such as degradation of freshwater bodies and aquatic life by untreated wastewater, increasing population, and concerns about pollution.

Rising demand for acetaldehyde in the Asia Pacific is driving the acetaldehyde market
  
The acetaldehyde market in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, which can be attributed to the easy availability of raw materials used for the manufacture of acetaldehyde. The Asia Pacific is a strategic location for acetaldehyde manufacturers, as an overall slowdown in the global economic scenario has encouraged many established manufacturers to expand their manufacturing facilities in this region and, thus, increase their sales. The growth of the Asia Pacific market is expected to be primarily driven by China, India, and Japan. Key manufacturers of acetaldehyde are focusing on expanding their bases in the Asia Pacific region to increase their market shares and enhance profit margins.

The acetaldehyde market is estimated at USD 1.33 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 1.80 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.24% during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for acetaldehyde in the water treatment application. In addition, the demand for high-quality derivatives in emerging economies is another significant factor contributing to the growth of the acetaldehyde market.

Acetaldehyde, also known as ethanal, is an aldehyde used as a starting material for the production of its derivatives, other chemicals, and other applications. Acetaldehyde is manufactured mostly through the oxidation of ethylene, also known as the Wacker process. Other manufacturing processes include oxidation of ethanol, dehydrogenation of ethanol, hydroformylation of methanol, and hydration of acetylene. However, the use of the acetylene hydration process has declined, as byproducts are formed in large quantities due to the severe reactions.

Based on application, acetaldehyde finds use in a wide range of applications, such as chemicals, plastics & synthetic rubber, food & beverage, paints & coatings, pharmaceuticals & cosmetics, paper & pulp, water treatment, and others. The food & beverage segment is the largest application segment of the acetaldehyde market. Moreover, the water treatment application segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The food & beverage application leads the overall acetaldehyde market, due to its use as a flavoring agent in several food products.

The acetaldehyde market in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. This growth can be attributed to the easy availability of raw materials used for the manufacture of acetaldehyde. The Asia Pacific region provides expansion opportunities for acetaldehyde manufacturers, owing to the low cost of manufacture in China, South Korea, and India. Limited regulations related to the use and manufacture of acetaldehyde in the Asia Pacific are further influencing the growth of the acetaldehyde market in this region.

The global demand for acetaldehyde is reducing, primarily due to the lower consumption of acetaldehyde for the manufacture of acetic acid. The acetic acid manufacturing industry continues to move towards the methanol carbonylation process which is more efficient compared to production using acetaldehyde. The phasing out of acetic acid production with the use of acetaldehyde is restraining the growth of acetaldehyde market.

Celanese (US), Eastman (US), Merck KGaA (Germany), Sumitomo (Japan), Sekab (Sweden), Showa Denko (Japan), Jubilant Life Sciences (India), Lonza (Switzerland), LCY Chemical (Taiwan), and Ashok Alco-chem (India) are the leading players in the acetaldehyde market. These companies have strengthened their market positions through diverse product portfolios, strategically positioned R&D centers, consistent development activities, and technological advancements. They are focused on the adoption of various organic and inorganic growth strategies, such as expansions, agreements, and acquisitions to increase their market shares.
