The "Acetic
Acid: Derivatives and Global Markets"
report has been added to's

The scope of the report covers the overview and clear understanding of
the global market scenario of acetic acid and its derivatives and
analysis of global market trends, with market data for 2017, considered
as the base year, 2018 as the estimate year, and forecast for 2023 with
projection of CAGR during 2018 to 2023. Market data in value and volume
is provided at global and regional levels for all major derivatives and
their applications.

Acetic acid, at present, is used widely in various industries, the major
ones being the production of polymers, pharmaceuticals, as solvents,
food additives, lubricants, soaps and detergents, agrochemicals, animal
feed, textiles, plastics, lubricant, varnishes, resins, transparent
adhesives, cosmetics, personal care products, coatings, rubber, and

The global acetic acid market has grown significantly during the past
few years and is expected to grow at a more rapid pace in the next five
years, mainly driven by the growth of vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) in the
food and beverage industry (food packaging, food preservatives).

The acetic acid market is also driven by the increasing demand for
polyvinyl acetates and vinyl alcohols, which are accelerating the demand
for acetic acid.

Increasing textile and packaging industries are one of the key drivers
behind the strong growth of Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA); while
budding coatings consumption is pushing the demand of ester solvents at
a notable pace.

By derivative, the global acetic acid market is segmented into these
categories: vinyl acetate monomer, purified terephthalic acid, acetate
esters, acetic anhydride and monochloroacetic acid. Vinyl acetate
monomer had the highest share in 2017. Acetic acid is the main feedstock
to manufacture vinyl acetate monomer.

By region, the global acetic acid market is segmented into North
America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America and the Rest of the World.
In terms of value and volume, Asia-Pacific had the highest share in
2017. The dynamics of each region are different, with many industrial
application production platforms having migrated from North America and
Europe to Asia-Pacific countries, changing the consumption pattern and
product flow in each region.
