Huntsman Corporation (US) and Polynt-Reichhold Group (Italy) are the Key Players in the Maleic Anhydride Market

The maleic anhydride market size is estimated to be USD 2.8 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 3.4 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period. Factors such as increasing demand for UPR in the automotive industry, high growth in the construction and wind energy industries, and growing demand of 1,4-BDO in various end-use industries are major driving factors. Commercialization of bio-based maleic anhydride is the major growth opportunity for the market. However, growth in demand for hybrid vehicles, rising battery price parity, and increase in governmental regulations are the major restraining factors in this market. Fluctuation in crude oil prices still remains a challenge for the maleic anhydride market.
