Leading players in the global formic acid suppliers include Perstorp AB, Eastman Chemical Company, LUXI Group Co. Ltd., Chongqing Chuandong Chemical (Group) Co. Ltd., Gujarat Narmada Valley Fertilizers and Chemicals Ltd., Feicheng Acid Chemical, and BASF SE. Major players are likely to focus on production capacity expansion in the coming years due to the growing demand for formic acid in its various end uses.
Formic acid is naturally extracted from the venom of ants and bees. However, it can also be produced synthetically. The growing demand for formic acid in animal feed applications as an additive is likely to be a major driver for the global formic acid market. In recent years, the use of antibiotics in animal feed has been banned by several governments due to concerns over its interaction with the human end consumers. This has led to a growing demand from the formic acid market, as formic acid naturally acts as a barrier against pathogens. This is likely to be a major driver for the global formic acid market over the forecast period. The growing animal feed industry is thus likely to be a major driver for the global formic acid market over the forecast period.
Formic acid is also used in the amalgamation of latex in the production of rubber sheets. This is also likely to be a major driver for the global formic acid market due to the growing demand for rubber sheets in various industries. Formic acid has also gained an important end use application in recent years, in the hydrogen fuel cell industry, where formic acid is used as a highly efficient way of storing hydrogen fuel. The growing investment in hydrogen fuel cells is thus likely to be a major driver for the global formic acid market over the forecast period.
The global formic acid market is segmented on the basis of production method, application, and region.
By production method, the global formic acid market is segmented into oxalic acid and carbonylation of methanol.
By application, the global formic acid market is segmented into finishing textiles, rubber and leather production, animal feed, dyeing, preservatives, cleaning agents, and others. The animal feed and rubber and leather production segments are likely to dominate the global formic acid market over the forecast period.
Asia Pacific holds the largest share in the global formic acid market, led by China. The growing animal feed industry in Asia Pacific is likely to be a major driver for the formic acid market in the region over the forecast period. Europe accounts for the second largest share in the global market, followed by North America.
