Global Benzaldehyde Derivatives Market: Snapshot
The leading drivers of the global benzaldehyde derivatives market currently include the rising demand for products from the industries of food and beverages, chemicals, agrochemicals, solvents and pharmaceuticals. A rise in the demand for benzaldehyde derivatives in emerging economies from Asia Pacific and the Middle East and Africa is anticipated to further propel the global benzaldehyde derivatives market and is also considered to be a strong opportunity for the globally prominent players. A high demand for solvents from the producers of resins, oils, cellulose acetates, cellulose ethers, and nitrates also presents a key area of opportunities for manufacturers from the global benzaldehyde derivatives market. However, the overall growth rate of this market may receive strong resistance from factors such as growing health concerns of long term exposure to several benzaldehyde derivatives and the growing threat of easily available substitutes in different end-user industries, including propionic and sorbic acids. The global benzaldehyde derivatives market is also being restrained by an overall volatility in crude oil prices and strict regulatory framework surrounding the oil and gas sector.
The global benzaldehyde derivative market was valued at US$1.37 bn in 2015 and is expected to reach US$2.14 bn by the end of 2024, after expanding at a CAGR of 5.1 % from 2016 to 2024.
Benzoic Acid Bags Leading Share in Global Benzaldehyde Derivatives Market
Benzoic acid accounted for the top share in the global benzaldehyde derivatives market in terms of volume as well as revenue generated in 2015, owing to its high rate of use in aromatic products, the food and beverages industry, and the pharmaceutical industry. By volume, benzoic acid was valued at US$778.2 mn within the global benzaldehyde derivatives market in 2015. The share held by benzoic acid in the global benzaldehyde derivatives market is expected to increase over the coming years due to a strong growth in demand from the food and chemicals industries. The growing demand for benzaldehyde derivatives in pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries are also expected to augment their global market over the coming years.
Cinnamic acid also finds large volumes of demand as it is employed in flavors, synthetic indigo dyes and in the manufacture of specific drugs. It is also used in artificial sweeteners within the food industry. Benzoic acid is a commonly used as a food preservative and can inhibit the development of bacteria, molds, and yeasts. Sodium benzoate is another benzaldehyde derivative and finds use in the food industry as well as the pharmaceutical industry. It even has applications in the prevention of surface corrosion.
APAC to Continue Leading Demand for Benzaldehyde Derivatives
Asia Pacific held the leading share in the global benzaldehyde derivatives market in terms of volume in 2015. Its nearly 60 % share in the global benzaldehyde derivatives market was attributed to a large consumption base, growth of various end user, and a relatively relaxed regulatory framework that led to a faster rate of development and use in the region’s food and chemical markets. Asia Pacific is expected to also be a highly attractive region till 2024, followed by Europe and North America. China accounted for the leading share in terms of volume within Asia Pacific, followed by Japan and other ASEAN countries. The growth rate of benzaldehyde derivatives in Europe and North America is very slow currently, owing to the maturation of the market and a low rate of product innovations.
Till 2015, the leading players in the global benzaldehyde derivatives market included Emerald Performance Materials, Haihang Industry Co., Ltd, Merck KGaA, Guangzhou Shiny Co., Elan Chemical, Ltd, Kadillac Chemicals Pvt Ltd, Gujarat Alkalis and Chemicals Limited, Wuhan Dico Chemical Co., Ltd , Shimmer Chemicals Pvt.
