Acetic acid is an organic compound with molecular formula CH3COOH, and is a precursor for manufacturing various other chemicals that serve various end user industries, such as textiles, inks, rubbers, plastics, and others. Its main application segments include the manufacturing of vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), purified terephthalic acid (PTA), acetic anhydride, and ester solvents (ethyl acetate & butyl acetate).

The acetic acid market has grown considerably during the past few years and is estimated to grow at a considerable pace in the next five years, mainly driven by the growing demand in the Asia-Pacific region. Asia-Pacific is the biggest consumer of in the industry, which consumed around 61.77% of the total global demand in 2012, followed by North America with a considerable demand. China is the biggest consumer, and is also among the fastest growing markets with an estimated CAGR of about 5.67% from 2013 to 2018. The European and North American markets are comparatively mature with a demand growth well below the average market growth. ROW is the fastest growing market with a CAGR of about 6.68% during the forecasted period.

Acetic acid market is expected to reach at an estimated volume of 16,339.67 kilotons by 2018, signifying a firm annualized growth rate of over 4.48% from 2013 to 2018.

The global market, along with its various derivatives, has witnessed a significant growth in the recent years, and this growth is estimated to persist in the coming years.

It is a key building block to manufacture various chemicals, such as vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), purified terephthalic acid (PTA), ester solvents(ethyl acetate & butyl acetate), and acetic anhydride that are further used by a wide range of end-user industries, such as synthetic fibers, textiles, inks, and pesticides.

Currently, Asia-Pacific is the largest market and all of its downstream derivatives, which consumed more than 60.00% of the overall global consumption in 2012. Among all the countries, China dominates the market. The country consumed maximum volume of this product in 2012. The market volume of acetic acid and its various derivatives is comparatively low in the ROW region, but is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR from 2013 to 2018, followed by the Asia-Pacific region.

The overall demand in the industry is driven by the producers of vinyl acetate monomer (VAM), purified terephthalic acid (PTA), and ester solvents consuming almost 73.00% of the total demand in 2012. Ester solvents manufacturing segment is expected to be the strongest growth segment of the market, which is primarily driven by the growing demand from coatings industry. Subsequently, the budding textile and packaging industry is pushing the demand for PTA, which in turn is driving the demand for acetic acid at a notable pace.

Among all the acetic acid derivatives, VAM led the market with the highest global consumption of more than 5.0 million tons, followed by ester solvents with total global consumption of around 4.0 million tons in 2012.

The top manufacturers include BP Plc (U.K.), Celanese Corporation (U.S.), Eastman Chemical Company (U.S.), Shanghai Huayi (Group) Company (China), Daicel Corporation (Japan), LyondellBasell Industries N.V. (The Netherlands), Shandong Hualu-Hengsheng Chemical Co. Ltd. (China), Yankuang Cathay Coal Chemicals Co. Ltd. (China), Jiangsu Sopo (Group) Co. Ltd. (China),  and Kingboard Chemical Holdings Ltd. (HongKong).
