The acetaldehyde market is estimated at USD 1.33 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 1.80 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.24% during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for acetaldehyde in the water treatment application. In addition, the demand for high-quality derivatives in emerging economies is another significant factor contributing to the growth of the acetaldehyde market.

Acetaldehyde, also known as ethanal, is an aldehyde used as a starting material for the production of its derivatives, other chemicals, and other applications. Acetaldehyde is manufactured mostly through the oxidation of ethylene, also known as the Wacker process. Other manufacturing processes include oxidation of ethanol, dehydrogenation of ethanol, hydroformylation of methanol, and hydration of acetylene. However, the use of the acetylene hydration process has declined, as byproducts are formed in large quantities due to the severe reactions. 

Based on application, acetaldehyde finds use in a wide range of applications, such as chemicals, plastics & synthetic rubber, food & beverage, paints & coatings, pharmaceuticals & cosmetics, paper & pulp, water treatment, and others. The food & beverage segment is the largest application segment of the acetaldehyde market. Moreover, the water treatment application segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The food & beverage application leads the overall acetaldehyde market, due to its use as a flavoring agent in several food products.

The acetaldehyde market in the Asia Pacific region is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. This growth can be attributed to the easy availability of raw materials used for the manufacture of acetaldehyde. The Asia Pacific region provides expansion opportunities for acetaldehyde manufacturers, owing to the low cost of manufacture in China, South Korea, and India. Limited regulations related to the use and manufacture of acetaldehyde in the Asia Pacific are further influencing the growth of the acetaldehyde market in this region.

Acetaldehyde Market

The global demand for acetaldehyde is reducing, primarily due to the lower consumption of acetaldehyde for the manufacture of acetic acid. The acetic acid manufacturing industry continues to move towards the methanol carbonylation process which is more efficient compared to production using acetaldehyde. The phasing out of acetic acid production with the use of acetaldehyde is restraining the growth of acetaldehyde market.

Celanese (US), Eastman (US), Merck KGaA (Germany), Sumitomo (Japan), Sekab (Sweden), Showa Denko (Japan), Jubilant Life Sciences (India), Lonza (Switzerland), LCY Chemical (Taiwan), and Ashok Alco-chem (India) are the leading players in the acetaldehyde market. These companies have strengthened their market positions through diverse product portfolios, strategically positioned R&D centers, consistent development activities, and technological advancements. They are focused on the adoption of various organic and inorganic growth strategies, such as expansions, agreements, and acquisitions to increase their market shares.
