Global Acetic Acid Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the increasing utilization of vinegar in the food industry. Vinegar forms an essential component in the preparation of various cuisines as its consumption also aids in regulating blood sugar, maintaining optimum cholesterol levels and reducing weight. Since acetic acid is widely used in the production of vinegar, this is providing a thrust to the market growth.

Moreover, there has been an escalating preference for polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles across numerous sectors, such as the pharmaceutical, food and beverages, and consumer goods industries, due to their durable, lightweight and recyclable nature. As these bottles are manufactured using PTA, which is produced using acetic acid, this, in turn, is facilitating the uptake of acetic acid across the globe.

The market is further driven by technological advancements in production technology to significantly lower the overall manufacturing costs while also ensuring increased production efficiency.

Some of the other factors contributing to the market growth include the increasing product utilization for manufacturing packaging materials and the growing demand for high-quality paints and adhesives. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global acetic acid market to reach US$ 15.5 Billion by 2027, exhibiting at a CAGR of 6.5% during 2022-2027.
