Global Acrolein Market will reach about USD 1.0 billion by 2020

Date: 2016-09-27

Acrolein (systematic name: propenal) is the simplest unsaturated aldehyde. It is a colourless liquid with a piercing, disagreeable, acrid smell. The smell of burnt fat (as when cooking oil is heated to its smoke point) is caused by glycerol in the burning fat breaking down into acrolein. It is produced industrially from propylene and mainly used as a biocide and a building block to other chemical compounds, such as the amino acid methionine.

Acrolein is primarily used as an intermediate in the synthesis of acrylic acid and as a biocide. It may be formed from the breakdown of certain pollutants in outdoor air or from the burning of organic matter including tobacco, or fuels such as gasoline or oil. It is toxic to humans following inhalation, oral or dermal exposures. Acute (short-term) inhalation exposure may result in upper respiratory tract irritation and congestion. No information is available on its reproductive, developmental, or carcinogenic effects in humans, and the existing animal cancer data are considered inadequate to make a determination that acrolein is carcinogenic to humans.

Sources and Potential Exposure
 Acrolein may be formed from the breakdown of certain pollutants found in outdoor air, from the burning of organic matter including tobacco, or from the burning of fuels such as gasoline or oil.
 Airborne exposure to acrolein may occur by breathing contaminated air, by smoking tobacco or by being in the proximity of someone who is smoking, by being near vehicle exhaust, or by being near oil- or coal-fired power plants.
 Occupational exposure to acrolein could occur in industries that use acrolein to make other chemicals.
 Average concentrations of acrolein measured in the ambient air in the U.S. ranged from non-detect to 2.05 micrograms per cubic meter in 2006-2009. The range of concentrations for individual 24-hour measurements may be appreciably higher.
 Small amounts of acrolein may be found in some foods, such as fried foods, cooking oils, and roasted coffee.
 Acrolein has not been detected in drinking water, and is not commonly found in surface water.

The Global Acrolein Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.6% within expectations, and will reach about USD 1.0 billion by 2020. By regions, Europe will be the largest market of acrolein followed by Asia.

The main market competitors are Evonik, Jinghong, Jingzhong, Xinjing, Youji, Puyang Shenghuade, Xinglu and Ruij and so on.
