Global Levulinic Acid Market: Trends, Share, Size, Growth & Opportunity -

DUBLIN--()--The "Levulinic Acid Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025" report has been added to's offering.

The global levulinic acid market reached a value of US$ 27.6 Million in 2019. Levulinic acid is an organic compound that is used to maintain the acidic balance of various pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and solvents. It is also utilized for the manufacturing of personal care products, food additives, resins, coatings, fuel additives and biofuels. The acid is generally available in the form of white crystalline solid and is soluble in ethanol, diethyl ether and water. It is commercially produced by hydrolyzing acetyl succinate esters, ozone-based oxidation of ketones and acidic hydrolysis of furfuryl alcohol. It finds extensive applications across the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, agrochemical and food and beverage industries.

The growing agriculture and biofuel industries are among the key factors driving the growth of the market. Levulinic acid is increasingly being utilized in solvents, pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides as a green alternative to sulfuric acid. Furthermore, the increasing product adoption rate as a substitute for phthalate plasticizers in the manufacturing of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) products is another major growth-inducing factor. In comparison to phthalate plasticizers, levulinic acid is considered to be relatively less lethal for consumers. Additionally, the growing utilization of levulinic acid in the production of nylons and rubbers is positively impacting the market. Apart from this, the sodium salt of levulinic acid is also used as a preservative and a skin conditioning agent in personal care products and cosmetics. Other factors, including the flourishing construction and automotive industries, along with the increasing R&D activities in the field of chemistry and biotechnology, rapid industrialization and urbanization across the emerging nations, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, the publisher expects the market to reach a value of US$ 36.6 Million by 2025, registering a CAGR of 4.8% during 2020-2025.
