It is also one of the most essential raw materials for the production of camphor, diketene, mono chloroacetic acid, and photographic chemicals. Over the past decade, the global chemicals industry size has almost doubled, creating a promising growth scenario for acetic acid market.

Stakeholders are expected to invest in Europe as flourishing frozen food industry in Italy, Spain, and Germany instills confidence among the forward-looking companies. Europe acetic acid market size was pegged at over US$ 1.4 bn in 2016 and will continue to show similar growth trajectory during the forecast period.

Some of the underlying factors including operational drawbacks and health hazards associated with the acid such as corrosive to metals, irritation to the skin, reduced compatibility with quarts and reduced performance at low temperature may mar the growth of the industry.
