Format: Online | Last Updated: Aug 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] India Acetic Acid market demand stood at 1.16 Million Tonnes in FY2021 and is forecast to reach 1.9 Million Tonnes by FY2030, growing at a healthy CAGR of 5.63% until FY2030. Increasing use of Acetic Acid in packaging, pharmaceuticals, and textile applications is expected to spur the demand for Acetic Acid in India during the next five years. Coronavirus Outbreak in the fourth quarter of FY 2020 has led to a sudden surge in the demand of the product from the pharmaceuticals and packaging sector on the increasing requirement for hygiene products, medicines, and packaged goods. As these sectors utilize an abundant quantity of Acetic Acid in various applications, demand for Acetic Acid is likely to propel at a significant rate till FY 24 as there are low hopes of abatement of the virus till a proper vaccine is attained for complete cure.
Gujarat Narmada Valley Fertilizers & Chemicals Limited as the only manufacturer of Acetic Acid in India is unable to meet the massive domestic demand for the product hence, the majority of its demand is met through imports. Trade disruption as a ripple effect of Coronavirus has given a massive opportunity to the domestic manufacturer looking widen their profit margins. As more than 80000 tonnes of Acetic Acid were being imported to India from China on monthly basis, ongoing hindrance in trade is anticipated to leave the domestic market stuck under persistent demand and reduced supply. To boost the domestic production of Acetic Acid and meet the unending demand for the same, there is a need to encourage a larger number of domestic manufacturers to emerge in the Acetic Acid market.
Acetic Acid is commercially manufactured by methanol and alcohol route. Limited availability of feedstock and high cost of alcohol process makes methanol more desirable in the production of Acetic Acid. Domestic demand for this product is perceived to vary with regions too. Among all regions, the western region in India has shown a significant demand for Acetic Acid due to the presence of various end-user industries. As Acetic Acid is utilized in an appreciable amount to produce PTA, demand for Acetic Acid is expected to record a marked growth due to the growing demand for PTA in the packaging and pharmaceutical industry. Increasing demand for PTA in polyester fibers is yet another factor contributing to the hike in demand for Acetic Acid. Along with this, utilization of Acetic Acid for the production of acetic anhydride and diketene derivatives is expected to contribute to the market growth as well during the forecast period.
