Decreased Production to Hamper Market in COVID-19 Pandemic
The reduced production of chemicals has negatively impacted on the market growth. The shutdown of factories due to a shortage of laborers and diminished supply of raw materials can dwindle the sales, in turn, affecting the growth of the market. However, the demand for ethanoic acid alongside the high consumption of sanitizers will subsequently aid in the recovery of the business amid coronavirus. Besides, health and safety concerns in healthcare facilities will further improve the prospects of the market in the near future.
Heavy Investments in Polymers to Promote Growth in Asia Pacific
The market in Asia Pacific is expected to hold the largest share in the global market owing to the rising polymer formulations in the region. The chemical is a key raw material used for the production of polymers in industries across Japan, China, and India. China is a major leader in polymers and chemicals. China’s capacity further helps in the high production of ethanoic acid. According, to Chemical Market Associates, Inc. (CMAI) 400,000 tons per year demand is in China, from the global average demand. The improving construction industry in India is expected to further boost growth in the region. Europe is expected to hold a significant share during the forecast period owing to the rising demand from end-use sectors. The growing import activities will aid expansion in Europe. Moreover, the high production of methanol carbonylation, which has accounted for up to 65% of the world capacity, and other process oxidation of acetaldehyde by German producer Wacker will significantly create opportunities for the market in the region.
October 2019:BP and China’s Zhejiang Petroleum and Chemical Corporation (ZPCC) announced a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for exploring the creation of an equally-owned joint venture between the companies to build and operate 1 million tons per annum of the acetic acid plant in eastern China.
