The formic acid market, along with its end products, has witnessed a linear growth in the past few years and this growth is estimated to increase in the coming years. Formic acid is one of the basic organic chemical raw materials widely used in pesticide, leather, dyes, pharmaceuticals and rubber industries. The high quality and environmental acceptability are some of the major features creating an upsurge in the demand in the industry. The upcoming safety regulations for the use of these products will be the key influencing factors for the global market with the increased emphasis on the different types of products and their varied applications.

The formic acid market is experiencing enormous growth which is expected to continue in the near future, mainly driven by the highly growing Asia-Pacific, Europe and North America. Considerable amount of investments are made by some major players to serve the end-user applications industry in the future. The Asia-Pacific region is the major consumer in the market and have accounted for about 47% market share with respect to volume in 2012. The region is further expected to show a high growth in the future, mainly due to the high growth potential of the agriculture market in China and India.

Almost 45% of the total formic acid demand was for the silage preservation, animal feed, and other agriculture applications in 2012, with the leather & textile and rubber industry also being the fastest growing end-use segments, primarily due to high penetration of leather and textiles in all the regions.

The drivers of the industry are: Emphasis on health and environment, ban of antibiotics as growth promoter in silage preservation and animal feed, and the increasing penetration with emerging application.

The study basically aims to estimate the market for 2014 and is projected up to 2019. This market research study provides a detailed qualitative and quantitative analysis of the formic acid market.

The formic acid market is estimated to be 762,123.8 thousand tons by volume by 2019 signifying a firm annualized growth rate of over 3.8% from 2014 to 2019.

The global formic acid market, along with its end products, witnessed a significant growth in the past few years and this growth is estimated to continue in the coming years. Quality, readily degradable nature & effective substitute to other acids, an upsurge in the demand for these products and innovative techniques developed for its use will be the key influencing factors for the global market with the increased emphasis on its different types and their applications.

Currently, the Asia-Pacific region is the largest consumer in the industry. Among all the countries in the region, China and India lead the formic acid market, with the largest share in the regional volumetric consumption in 2012. The market volume of these products is comparatively low in the ROW region, but is estimated to grow with a moderate CAGR from 2014 to 2019.

Almost 45% of the total formic acid demand was for the agriculture sector in 2012, with silage preservation and animal feed application as the fastest growing end-user segment. As an end-user, agriculture is the largest segment of the industry, primarily due to its high penetration in all the regions and the ban of antibiotics promotion growth by the European Union in its applications.

The European region is the most active market in terms of strategic initiatives, owing to their emerging and mature market demands respectively. The animal feed global market is estimated to be around $16,183.0 million in 2012 and is estimated to reach $20,333.2 million in the next 5 years with the CAGR of 3.8%.

The important formic acid manufacturers include BASF SE (Germany), BASF SE (Germany), Feicheng Acid Chemicals Co. Ltd. (China), Gujarat Narmada Valley Fertilizers & Chemicals Ltd. (India), Perstorp AB (Sweden), and Taminco Corporation (Belgium), and others.
