Global Glycolic Acid Market Expected to Grow with a CAGR of 8% During the Forecast Period, 2018-2027 -

DUBLIN--()--The "Glycolic Acid - Global Market Outlook (2018-2027)" report has been added to's offering.

The Global Glycolic Acid Market accounted for $261.48 million in 2018 and is expected to reach $531.48 million by 2027 growing at a CAGR of 8%.

Increasing demand for glycolic acid in the cosmetic industry, growing glycolic acid consumption in varied applications is likely to boost the growth of the market. However, Skin problems caused by the use of glycolic acid-based cosmetic products are likely to hamper the profit boundaries.

Glycolic acid belongs to a group of active compounds known as AHAs (alpha hydroxyl acids), which are primarily found in vegetables and fruits such as sugarcane, pineapple, unripe grapes, etc. Glycolic acid possesses the smallest molecules in the group; this enables quick and easy penetration of human skin. It is therefore very effective in skin treatment and is widely used in cosmetic formulations. Due to the increased adoption of personal care products, the glycolic acid market is witnessing significant growth.

Glycolic acid is also used for the manufacturing of poly glycolic acid (PGA) and in absorbable sutures for surgical/medical applications. Improving healthcare standards, particularly in emerging economies, are expected to accelerate the demand for these sutures. This would, in turn, boost the demand for glycolic acid. The key players operating in this market are Chemsolv, Inc., DuPont, Phibro Animal Health Corporation, CrossChem LP, Parchem, Sigma-Aldrich, Phibro Animal Health Corporation, Griffin International Inc. and Crosschem LP.

Based on the type, the glycolic acid segment is owing to increasing demand for glycolic acid-based products for scalp treatment and hair nourishment.

By geography, Europe accounted for the substantial market share of over 30% due to a rapidly developing skin and hair care industry. Increasing demand for anti-aging and acne removal creams is expected to drive the market further over the forecast period. Presence of various cosmetics manufacturers in Italy and France is also likely to boost market growth.
