The acetaldehyde Market size is forecast to reach $2.1 billion by 2027, after growing at a CAGR of 6.5% during 2022-2027. Acetaldehyde is widely used in the manufacturing of acetic acid, perfumes, dyes and drugs, as a flavoring agent and as an intermediate in the metabolism of alcohol owing to the rising consumption of these goods the acetaldehyde market will grow. COVID 19 pandemic has created a rapid spike in demand for acetaldehyde end products this will further enhance the overall market demand for Acetaldehyde during the forecast period.

Key Takeaways

  • Asia-Pacific dominates the Acetaldehyde market owing to increasing demand from applications such as automotive and aviation industries.

-Acetaldehyde is widely used in the manufacturing of acetic acid, perfumes, dyes and drugs, as a flavoring agent and as an intermediate in the metabolism of alcohol, which is likely to aid in the market growth of Acetaldehyde

  • Acetaldehyde is also used in many foods such as ripe fruits, cheese and heated milk which will increase the market growth for Acetaldehyde in the near future.

-Acute exposure to its vapors results in irritation of the eyes, skin, and respiratory tract Which will create hurdles for the Acetaldehyde market

Manufacturing Process - Segment Analysis

The oxidation Ethylene segment holds the largest share in the Acetaldehyde market. Ethylene is oxidized as an unmodified Ag catalyst to ethylene oxide which can undergo “after‐combustion” to CO2 and H2O. In contrast, when examined in isolation under the same conditions, ethylene oxide isomerizes to acetaldehyde. Ethylene appears to block the catalyst sites necessary for this reaction. By a direct hydrothermal synthesis procedure, showed very high activity and high selectivity in the production of ethylene from ethanol in an oxidative process. Ethylene selectivity showed a significant increase with an increase in temperature over 300 °C, while relatively high acetaldehyde selectivity was observed at lower temperatures.

Application - Segment Analysis

Fruit & fish flavoring and preservation holds the largest segment for the acetaldehyde market. It is found in low levels in some fruits and prepared by fermentation such as milk products, soy products, canned vegetables, and non-alcoholic beverages. It is also found in fruit and fruit juices. Acetaldehyde is found in fruits, vegetables, bread, vinegar, and milk and milk products. Similar to formaldehyde, if we tried to completely remove this chemical compound from our diet, we would say goodbye to a lot of healthful and nutrient-dense foods like bananas, lemons, apples, and milk. But lucky for most of us, we aren’t consuming enough acetaldehyde in our diets for it to pose a health risk.

End Use - Segment Analysis

Food & Beverage application holds the largest market for acetaldehyde market, due to its use as a flavoring agent in several food products. It is found in low levels in some foods and prepared by fermentation such as milk products, soy products, canned vegetables, and non-alcoholic beverages. It is also found in fruit and fruit juices. During fermentation small amounts of acetaldehyde are formed as a metabolite alcohol. The chemical is also used as a food flavoring agent that is added to some pastries, fruit juices, soft drinks, sweet deserts. Many alcoholic beverages contain acetaldehyde that is formed as a by product during the production process. Even, the microbes of the intestinal tract can produce acetaldehyde in saliva, gastric juices and others.

Geography - Segment Analysis

APAC has dominated the Acetaldehyde market owing to the largest food and beverages market. Countries such as India and China are the largest market in this region. The behind these countries to be the largest in the population they have and the wide culture they have. Food preservation becomes really important for countries like these and flavoring on the other hand also becomes so important because of the wide and variety of cultural festivals they have. The primary function of flavors is to add taste to foods, as they have no nutritional properties. Flavors come in both natural and artificial varieties. Artificial flavors are carefully selected to provide a larger and more diverse variety of flavors. Natural, on the other hand, may incorporate natural derivatives such as fruits, spices and vegetables to achieve a broad array of flavors.

Drivers - Acetaldehyde Market

Impact of COVID 19

The rapid spread of coronavirus has had a major impact on global markets as, major economies of the world are completely lockdown due to this pandemic. Because of this major lockdown, suddenly all the consumer market has started to show zero interest towards purchasing any goods. One of the major difficulties, the market is facing are the shutdown of all kinds of International transportation. But on the other hand, the essential goods market has seen an exponential growth in their end products demand and Acetaldehyde is also majorly used in essential goods end products.

Increasing advertisements using social media

With countries becoming more and more digitalize, they are spending a lot of money and time on the internet, which is the major reason for companies shifting more towards social media platforms for their advertisements. Advertisement plays a very important role in the marketing for any end product. Without it, the speed of growth for end products becomes slow. Generally, businesses hire the services of an advertising agency to promote their products and services. The advertising agency selected by the business owner can handle the entire advertisement campaign and all aspects of the company’s marketing.

Challenges - Acetaldehyde Market

Acute exposure to its vapors causes health issues

Acute exposure to its vapors results in irritation of the eyes, skin, and respiratory tract. It has a general narcotic action and also causes irritation of mucous membranes. Large doses may cause death from respiratory paralysis. Small amounts of acetaldehyde are produced naturally through gut microbial fermentation. Acetaldehyde is produced through the action of alcohol dehydrogenase on ethanol and is more toxic than ethanol. Acetaldehyde is linked to most of the negative clinical effects of alcohol. It has been shown to increase the risk of developing cirrhosis of the liver, multiple forms of cancer, and alcoholism.

Market Landscape

Technology launches, acquisitions and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the Acetaldehyde market. In 2019, the market of Acetaldehyde has been consolidated by the top five players accounting for xx% of the share. Major players in the Acetaldehyde Market are Dupont, Dow chemical company, BASF, purdue, Tadeka Pharmaceutical company, sumitomo chemical company among others.
