Benzaldehyde Derivative Manufacturers Can Expect a Rounded Increase in Demand
“The end users of the global benzaldehyde derivatives market from the industries of chemicals, food and beverages, and agrochemicals are expected to be an inseparable part of the market’s growth rate over the coming years. Benzaldehyde derivatives find a massive scope of use in cosmetics, perfumes, and dyes, making them a highly sought-after chemical in the booming cosmetics markets around the world. The food and beverages industry is also upping its demand for benzaldehyde derivatives due to their high rate of use as a stabilizer and artificial sweetener. The use of cinnamic acid as a pesticide has become extremely popular due to its effectiveness on over 40 of the key crops growing around the world, further boosting the growth rate of the global benzaldehyde derivatives market,” states a TMR analyst.
Over the coming years, the global benzaldehyde derivatives market is expected to generate a high revenue stream from the pharmaceutical industry, where the use of benzaldehyde derivatives is finding greater scope in the manufacture of several drugs, including ephedrine HCL, D-alpha phenyl glycine, and benzyl amine. The pharma industry is also expected to further increase its demand for benzaldehyde derivatives through successful developments in the fields of biotechnology and biosciences. Additionally, some benzaldehyde derivatives are strongly linked to anti-cancer function in the human body and are therefore gaining a lot of attention from those angles.
Threat of Substitutes Looms Large over Global Benzaldehyde Derivatives Market
There are a large number of substitutes present against benzaldehyde derivatives, such as sodium nitrate, several sulfites, sorbic acid, and propionic acid in the chemicals industry. They perform similar functions and can be easily available in relation to the manufacture and distribution of benzaldehyde derivatives. The food and beverages industry can also look to strong substitutes such as potassium nitrate, erythorbic acid, and calcium ascorbate, further reducing the overall demand for benzaldehyde derivatives. The global benzaldehyde derivatives market is further threatened by the increasing health concerns over some types of benzaldehyde derivatives, such as benzoic acid, which when inhaled in large amounts can cause abnormal bodily functions.
“Manufacturers in the global benzaldehyde derivatives market could look to the pharmaceutical sector for a greater demand over the coming years, as these chemicals provide solid options for several drugs and pharma processes. Additionally, the growing markets for cosmetics, solvents, and dyes are also expected to generate sizeable opportunities in the global benzaldehyde derivatives market over the coming years,” adds the analyst.
