The global market for Succinic Acid is projected to reach US$1.1 billion by 2022, driven by the growing commercial value of bio succinic acid and new emerging uses in dietary supplements, pharmaceuticals and preparation of tropical medicines for arthritis and joint pain. Major factors driving the prominence of bio succinic acid include technology innovation in manufacturing and processing; and growing preference over fossil fuel-based alternatives due to benefits such as cost effectiveness, low carbon footprint and reduced price volatility. Strong growth is forecast to come from increased use of bio succinic acid in manufacturing biodegradable plastics, plastic bags, garbage bags, packaging film, and bottles. Other interesting application areas with strong potential to drive consumption patterns include automotive engineering, construction, sportswear, furniture and nonwovens and fiber production. Europe represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 24.9% over the analysis period, led by favorable macroeconomic factors that drive growth of downstream industries; emergence of Asian countries as global production hubs for a wide range of products such as food & beverage, personal care, pharmaceuticals, industrial chemicals and plastics, among others.
