Global Levulinic Acid Market Industry Analysis and Growth Forecast to 2024 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

February 6, 2020 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 6, 2020--

The “Levulinic Acid Market Research Report: By Technology, Application, Geographical Outlook - Global Industry Analysis and Growth Forecast to 2024” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

From valuing $26.3 million in 2018, the global levulinic acid market is predicted to grow to $34.5 million by 2024, registering a CAGR of 4.9% during the forecast period (2019-2024).

The largest application area of levulinic acid across the world is as fuel additives. Further, the levulinic acid market is predicted to witness the fastest growth in this category in the forecast period. This can be attributed to the rising concerns about the environment regarding the depleting fossil reserves, which make up for most of the energy needs in the present time. Additionally, the category of personal care products is expected to register notable growth, due to the rising popularity of bio-based personal care and cosmetics products.

The rising adoption of levulininc acid derivatives across various end-use industries is driving the growth of the levulinic acid market. Recently, the demand for bio-based products, including organic fragrances and cosmetics has surged. The derivatives of levulinic acid, such as diphenolic acid, hydroxymethylfurfural, ethyl levulinate, succinic acid, and sodium levulinate, find application in agricultural products, food and fuel additives, and personal care products. In the personal care industry, a sodium salt derived from levulinic acid, sodium levulinate, is witnessing a high demand, as it is used as a skin-conditioning agent in cosmetics and other personal care products. In addition to that, the salt is also being used as a food preservative, as it helps in inhibiting the growth of aerobic microorganisms while storing food.

In 2018, among all regions, the largest share in the levulinic acid market was held by North America. During the forecast period, the region is expected to register a 9.8% volume CAGR. The high-volume adoption of levulinic acid derivatives in a huge number of applications due to their organic nature is one of the reasons behind the remarkable growth of the market. In addition to being used as a fuel additive, the derivatives of levulininc acid are also used in agricultural products, such as herbicides and pesticides. They are capable of enhancing crop yield and preventing pest infestation. Further, the rising environmental concern in the region, have motivated manufacturers to shift from synthetic insecticides to bio-based ones.
