The citric acid market is considered one of the fastest-growing segments of the food additives market due to the increasing consumer preference for convenience food & beverage products. The citric acid market is driven by the rising demand for food safety.
However, in developed regions, it has struggled with rising prices of molasses, a key raw material in citric acid production. Despite this, the global market is impacted by large-scale production and export of inexpensive citric acid products from the Asia-Pacific market, especially from China.
The global market for citric acid stood at USD 2.6 Billion in 2014, at USD 3.6 Billion by 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2015 to 2020. In 2014, the European region was the largest market for citric acid.
The high growth corresponds to the increasing demand for additives of natural origin, especially in processed food & beverage products and cosmetic products. The wide applicability of citric acid as an acidulant, preservative, emulsifier, flavorant, sequestrant, and buffering agent in numerous products of food and non-food industries has led to its propelled growth, which is expected to continue in the forecast period.
Emerging applications of citric acid in cleansers and detergents for their biodegradability and other environment-friendly properties are also key driving factors for the citric acid market.
