World Acetic Acid Market

Date: 2016-08

Acetic acid acid is a colorless liquid with strong and pungent smell, which is also known as ethanoic acid or methanecarboxylic. Approximately 75% of the acetic acid is produced synthetically by carbonylation of methanol and this process. However, acetic acid can also be produced by bacterial fermentation and accounts for only about 10% of world production. This biological route of acetic acid production is majorly used for vinegar production due to food purity laws, which stipulate to use vinegar of biological origin. Its main applications includes production of chemical compounds such as vinyl acetate monomer, acetic anhydride, and ester production. Products of commercial importance made from acetic acid are latex emulsion resins for paints, adhesives, paper coatings, textile finishing agents, cellulose acetate fibers, cigarette filter tow, and cellulosic plastics.
